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 1858 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Only 2000 magnums of this celebratory wine were produced. Vines are about 30 years old and the wine is a blend of roughly 50% Teroldego/25% Cabernet Sauvignon/ 12% Rebo/12% Gozen. Lovely and very complex on the nose with floral and vegetal undertones to the deep, dark, somewhat mysterious fruit. Rich, soft and dense in the mouth with lovely ac... Read More

  • Dorigati Cabernet 2005

    Snoothrank:

    As is so typical of the region this is in fact a 50/50 blend of Cab Sauvignon and Cab Franc that sees only Stainless.A lovely ruby color with very typical cassis fruit edged in vegetal tones. Pretty intense aromatics with herbal topnotes and emergent hints of eucalyptus. The entry is wetly fruited with lots of body, soft acidity and ripe tannins... Read More

  • Dorigati Diedri 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is Dorigatis Teroldego Riserva and as such is a selection of the finest fruit from the historic Bagolari vineyard that sees 12 months in barrique, ½ new ½ used. The vines average about 35 years old and in some vintages the grapes spend a week or so drying on the vines. One interesting point with this wine is that Dorigati continue to use th... Read More

  • Dorigati Rebo Rigotti 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Aged only in StainlessTransparent deep ruby. Very youthful, smells like a barrel sample. A touch more on the vegetal Merlot side though with a nice touches of spice and light licorice tones. Light and loose in the mouth with very soft tannins and good acidity that support but light yet pure dark raspberry fruit on the mid-palate that lead to a ... Read More

    This Rose is very typical of the region and its unusually pale color belie the lovely and intense notes of watermelon, green oily herbs, and mineral tones on the nose. Again clear and clean in the mouth with spicy strawberry fruit upfront, a touch of mineral mouthgrab across the midpalate and a bit of floral and herbaciousness tones on the brisk... Read More
