Trentino-Alto Adige is in the north section of Italy, bordering the Austrian and Swiss Alps. It is comprised of two autonomous provinces: Trentino lies to the south, with its capital Trento. This is the culturally Italian portion of the region. Alto Adige in the north, some call it Sudtirol, is mostly German-speaking, long considered part of Austria. Its main city is Bolzano. 
 
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 elevated 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 Read more »

    Wine review by martins2002


  • Alois Lageder 'Riff' Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed on the nose with gentle dried floral and apple skin notes along with hints of chestnut and dried lemon peel. Round in the mouth without much detail while delivering polleny orchard fruit flavors. There's enough acid here and some mineral note but this is rather boring if cleanly made. 85pts Read More

  • Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Vigneti Delle Dolomiti 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with subtle aromas of pressed flowers, citrus pith and pear skin. Fruity with good intensity in the mouth this skirts the limits of a lightweight wine, showing a bit of depth and viscosity on the palate while delivering the classic fresh flavors of crabapple, pear and subtly polleny spice. The finish is edgy and decisive with a... Read More

  • Foradori Teroldego 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of wood help frame the blackberry and a little blueberry fruit of the nose. In the mouth this is a bit tannic, even a bit hard today with good intensity to the juicy blackberry fruit that shows a slightly candied edge in the mouth and fades away on the modest finish. Attractive but not terribly distinctive. 86pts Read More

  • Zeni Teroldego 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and finely mineral and stemmy on the nose, this does show an impressive array of sweet spice and herbs on the nose which pop early on the palate as well. Theres gorgeous fruit here, bright, complex, and high toned, though the palate lacks the complexity of the nose. Everything wraps up in a clean, light finish. 87pts Read More

  • Foradori Fontanasanta Nosiola 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Mineral and spicy on the nose, this shows better precision and more freshness than the Manzoni Bianco. Entering with great power and focus, this fills the mouth with clean gorgeous expressions of white peach and crisp apple laden with mineral notes and subtle hazelnut accents. Finishing with a mouth cleansing and slightly bracing texture, this ... Read More

  • Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie Vigneti Delle Dolomiti 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice Italian pinot grigio. A bit more stone fruit and softer acidity than your normal pinot gris. This comes across more like a Napa Sauv Blanc, well balanced and fresh but not overly citrusy. Read More
