Alto Adige Wine

 

Alto Adige is the north half of the larger region known as Trentino-Alto Adige, in northern Italy. Also known as Sudtirol (South Tyrol), it borders Austria, and is bilingually German and Italian, with many Germanic influences. 
 
The area dates back to the Bronze Age, first inhabited by the Celts, then the Etruscans. The Romans took it over in the 1st century AD. After the fall of the Roman empire, it suffered much of the same fate as other parts of the country as the target of violent invading factions such as the Visigoths.

Alto Adige on Snooth

  • Tramin Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity aromas of nectarine and lemon on the nose with some light green herb. Fresh and acidic on entry, with grapefruit and lime taking the lead and some lemon pith around the edges melting into a touch of toast and spice towards the finish of this well made wine. Lengthy finish has a touch more of the bitterness of citrus pith.88 pts Read More

  • Tiefenbrunner Chardonnay 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is an extremely enjoyable Italian chardonnay. This has some nice lemon peel on the nose. The flavor profile has the same along with lemon cream, a touch of green apple and just a hint of white pepper. This is fermented in stainless and concrete - no oak, so the acidity is right up front and the finish is medium long. Read More
