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 »

  • Pinot Nero Alto Adige Barthenau Vigna S. Urbano 1999

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was full of dark red fruits, fall leaves, caramel, musk and damp earth. It was hard to take my nose from this glass as it continued to evolve over the course of the meal. On the palate it was soft and elegant while showing black cherry, plum and extra dark chocolate. All of this was carried gracefully by this wine's brisk acidity, wh... Read More

  • Kellerei Cantina Terlan Alto Adige Terlaner Classico 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very interesting / unique wine. At first, lightly chilled, the taste is extremely light... almost flat and unassumingly flavorless. As the wine warms to room temp, it goes through several levels of transformation to become a much brighter, citris, floral and fruit forward white wine. Wonderful with food, it was light enough to not be o... Read More

  • Elena Walch Lagrein Alto Adige Südtirol Riserva Castel Ringberg 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Beaujolais-esque nose. Similar flavors, sweet ripe blackberry. Young, bright and fruity. Fan of Beaujolais will like it. Bigger wine lovers may not. Read More

  • Hofstatter Pinot Noir Mezcan 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This just smells lovely, full of forest floor, tea and earth notes that gently frame the fruit. In the mouth it's bright and linear with a soft, fleshy core of red fruits that gain complexity on the finish with notes of incense stems and tree bark. There is great freshness here and while it may be a touch lean at this stage it remains very engag... Read More

  • Erste & Neue Barleit Moscato Giallo 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Intense floral peach nose followed by fruity peach off-dry first impression in the mouth. But like a rollercoaster all over the place finishes with equally intense lemony citrus flavors and very drying. Read More
