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 Barberolo


  • Ferrari Perle Trento Brut NV

    Snoothrank:

    Quite yeasty on the nose with some lovely, pithy citrus fruit notes that recall lime oil. Very fine mousse in the mouth with a touch of sweetness early on then more acid driven flavors of tart apples doused with lemon juice over a nice base of evolved, leery character. Finishes stingily with a return of a sweet edge and nice lifted inner mouth n... Read More

  • Goldmuskateller Moscato Giallo DOC Süss 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice floral, fennel pollen and lightly red fruited nose with honey comb top notes. This really does have a remarkably floral and rd fruited aromatic profile. On entry this has a nice texture, a bit slick, smooth in the mouth with a very fine polyphenolic bitterness up front and then nice quince fruit with hints of melon, nice sweet almond notes ...

  • Sauvignon DOC Premstaller 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Chalky on the nose with some old wood notes, lime fruit, light ripe herb base notes, nicely fresh on the palate, easy with long mineral and citrus pith, almost pineapple fruit on the zesty finish. This really does offer a nice combination of very ripe fruit flavors with tense minerality 90pts Read More

  • Sauvignon DOC Premstaller 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This has a great nose full of ripe fruit with a hint of herbs and very Sancerre like, though there is a bit too much SO2. Opulent in the mouth, powerful yet not fruity, this offers up a little dusty minerality and good acidity supporting brisk citrus and green fruits. The mineral finish, lacks a touch of depth, and over all this shows a very rip... Read More
