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.

    Snoothrank:

    2007 Poiema Marzemino Barrel Sample -Slavonian Oak This is made in the governo style with Marzemino wine refermented with grapes that had been dried for 4 weeks. Approximately 40% of the grapes are dried- A bit too woody at this point with smoky notes of mace, but there seems to be very jewel-like fruit lying at the core. The tannins on the pal... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Eugenio Rosi Poiema 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Here is a bottle that has had the time to integrates and the nose speaks intensely of Marzemino with a huge, fragrant floral note over the slightly astringent red fruits which recall pomegranate seeds. In the mouth it is big and layered with a sweet core of wild berry fruit gentle edged with a touch of shaved bakers chocolate and a very sharp mi... Read More

  • Azienda Agricola Eugenio Rosi Red Bordeaux Blend Vallagarina IGT Esegesi 2005

    Snoothrank:

    from bottle but not yet released. This has a touch of VA on the nose adding lift to the fleshy, animal notes and bit of woodiness. Decidedly more funky and earthy than the 2006 on the nose, there is a striking resemblance in the mouth. This combines the bright acids of the 06 with those some, very fine, sneaky tannins. The tannins here may be a... Read More
