Alto Adige - Südtirol 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 »

  • Bozen Pinot Grigio 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Some salinity and mineral aromas with some fruit flavors of apricot and pear. Burst of fruit flavor in the mouth with flavors of pear and lemon, buoyant acidity and a driving citrus finish. Read More

    Wine review by cathyg


  • OK, I'm pretty sure this one qualifies for inclusion in this conversation.  Lagrein is pretty unsusal for a California wine (like this one), but, who's kiiding who, with the exception of the Sudtirol, it is pretty much an unusual wine from anyplace. And, of course, Paso Robles is just like Alto Adige.Besides Imagery I think Jacuzzi produces a Ca...

    Wine review by martins2002


  • Emark, if you want to see an Italian Lagrein, drive over to Orange.  WineX has a decent selection of Italian wines overall.  Napa Cabs in Chino isn't bad, either--they actually have wines from Ghemme, which are not easy to find.  But no Lagrein, alas. I enjoyed the Imagery (Remy in WA grows one, not as good), but the best Lagrein is from Sudtiro... Read More

  • J. Hofstätter White Blend Alto Adige Südtirol Barthenau Vigna San Michele 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino strutturato, morbido e grasso che si presta ad essere invecchiato. Il pinot bianco a origine in Germania ma trova il clima adatto nell'alto Adige. Al naso ampio, stupisce per la sua salinità e mineralità. Un vino da centellinare, semplicemente stupendo. Un vino avvolgente,polpa ben costruita, equilibrato ed avvolgente. Sentori di rosa ...

  • Tenutae Lageder Pinot Grigio Porer 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Reticent on the nose with hints of soil, wild flowers, honeycomb and dried pear fruit topped with some toasty nuance. Rich on entry, the not insignificant acidity here manages to stay in the background while fully supporting the bright, if earthy fruit flavors on the palate. A lovely nuance of bitter almond appears on the palate adding complexit... Read More
