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 »

  • 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

    Wine review by EdsAngel


  • 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

  • Terlano Muller-Thurgau Alto Adige 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose reminds me of Riesling but the flavor profile is a bit lighter. Lively acidity and nice subtle citrus make this a wine that would go well with seafood or chicken dishes sans heavy sauce. Overall this is an extremely enjoyable quaff. Read More

  • Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Best of recent vintages, bright yellow straw with aromas of yellow and white stone fruits and citrus; on the palate its lemon pee' orange pith and dried melon across a bright and round mouth-feel to a lingering finish. Refresh. Read More
