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 »

  • Elena Walch Müller-Thurgau Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT 2007


    Crisp mineral nose with a faint sulfur quality. Moderate-to-high acidity in the mouth with a light body and notes of green peppers and grass. Bizarre almost nonexistent finish. Well made but a little weak overall for me. Read More

  • Weingut Niklas Sudtiroler Lagrein 2005


    I bought 2 bottles of this over 2 years ago, at which time I cracked one open. I remember it being a delightful wine, full of spicy fruit and gamey flavours, so I was looking forward to opening the second one.The colour had definitely changed. From a deep purple it has matured into deep garnet with a brick rim. On the nose there are notes of dri... Read More

  • Foradori Teroldego Rotaliano Granato 1995


    Smoky on the nose with a minor peat note this still shows some wood backed by lovely, smoky fruit with touches of honey-suckle, cool menthol, and dried hay. The aromas are sweet and appealing if a touch animal. On entry this is soft and very juicy with a really fresh cherry fruit tone, and a touch of almond,. This remains fresher and fruitier th...

  • Foradori Sgarzon Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT 1995


    lots of earth and shale on the nose but this remains fresh but evolving with lovely mushroom and floral flower notes, sour cherry fruit, and a lovely Porcini top note. Theres a touch of VA here that weaves in and out of the bouquet making the nose here a bit of a moving target. Dark, dried fruit (cherry and berry) dominate the mid-palate while... Read More

  • Foradori Teroldego Sgarzon 1996


    A lovely and complex nose full of mulberry salame, meaty, roasty, mineral, rocky, floral, and dried pine, tones. In the mouthy this is sweet, round and fleshy yet retains delicacy and finesse. This fairly dances across the palate with juicy, black plums, and fine depth of dark earth and mineral spice on a sleek frame built for a speed. Streamlin... Read More
