The Hartmann Dona wines are limited, unique and exhilarating.
Expression of terroir
“One who is igniting Schiava’s full potential is Hartmann Donà, a stern-looking man with a fascination for the variety bordering on insanity. Last year Donà released three single-vineyard Schiavas grown on radically different soil types: Phyllit from gneiss, Dolomit from calcareous sediments; and Granit grown on soils of volcanic origin. Rarely have I been more excited about red wines from Alto Adige. Vinified in pretty much the same way, while stylistically completely different, they are crystal-clear expressions of Alto Adige’s complex terroirs. These three exceptional, elegant and, I expect, long-lived wines should prove a total game-changer in the appreciation of Schiava, showing convincingly its ability to express differences in terroir.” – Walter Speller / Jancis Robinson
