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. This bi-cultural blend of Italian and German began in the Middle Ages. By the end of World War II, the industrial revolution propelled the region’s infrastructure and economy. The Alto Adige became a popular tourist resort destination, bringing with it, a global appreciation of the region’s wines, cultivated for centuries by monks. The prestigious wine school San Michele all’Adige helped bring the wines to new heights of quality into the Read more »

  • Castel Turmhof Pinot Grigio. Tiefenbrunner 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice Italian pinot grigio. A bit more stone fruit and softer acidity than your normal pinot gris. This comes across more like a Napa Sauv Blanc, well balanced and fresh but not overly citrusy. Read More

  • Alois Lageder 'Riff' Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed on the nose with gentle dried floral and apple skin notes along with hints of chestnut and dried lemon peel. Round in the mouth without much detail while delivering polleny orchard fruit flavors. There's enough acid here and some mineral note but this is rather boring if cleanly made. 85pts Read More

  • Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Vigneti Delle Dolomiti 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with subtle aromas of pressed flowers, citrus pith and pear skin. Fruity with good intensity in the mouth this skirts the limits of a lightweight wine, showing a bit of depth and viscosity on the palate while delivering the classic fresh flavors of crabapple, pear and subtly polleny spice. The finish is edgy and decisive with a... Read More

  • Tenutae Lageder Pinot Grigio Porer 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Reticent on the nose with hints of soil, wild flowers, honeycomb and dried pear fruit topped with some toasty nuance. Rich on entry, the not insignificant acidity here manages to stay in the background while fully supporting the bright, if earthy fruit flavors on the palate. A lovely nuance of bitter almond appears on the palate adding complexit... Read More
