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.

  • Dorigati Diedri 2004


    Ruby red color in the glass. The nose is pleasantly earthy and smoky with roasted meats and blackberry. Currants, licorice and baking spices on the palate with a long black current, mouth coating finish... yet retains liveliness from a zesty acidity from start to finish Read More

  • Heinrich Mayr Nusserhof Tyroldego Vino da Tavola 2006


    A deep dark red in the glass. The nose is full of raspberry, plum, leather and a bit of rubber. The palate is where this really came to life for me as it showed a tremendous amount of fruit but all kept in check by brisk acidity. Blackberry, blueberry, cranberry and sometimes sour apple. It seemed to change with every sip. Citrus rind and pepper... Read More

  • Cavit Winery Pinot Grigio Cavit Collection 2008


    I live in the Bronx but work in Manhattan and so didn't know what kind of wines I'd find in my local store. I bought this and am happily surprised. I love very dry wines and this delivers. And the price was right. I recommend it. Great alone or I'm sure it would go very well with a meal. I'm sipping it on Christmas Eve 2009 and it is a most... Read More

  • Foradori Teroldego Rotaliano Premier 2006


    This wine from the base of the alps fills the nose with smoke and moss, followed by a flavors that remind of Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt wines of near-by Austria, but more mellow and a wider range of tastes. Very much a food wine but enjoyable to sip and savor. Read More

  • Pinot Nero Alto Adige Barthenau Vigna S. Urbano 1999


    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
