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 »

  • Mezzacorona Teroldego Teroldego Rotaliano Riserva 2009


    This has a textbook nose. Wild berries, herbs and light spice notes with hints of dried fennel and a touch of sun-dried tomato. It checks off all the boxes. Big and polished in the mouth, this has a lot of intensity but feels a touch extracted with big, dry tannins that clamp down on the back end. Until then, this sets out in a fairly elegant an...

  • Luigi Zanini Teroldego Rotaliano le Cervare 2010


    Tight and a bit oaky on the nose with toasty spice and vanilla notes as well as a touch of brett. Wood sweetens the palate here, with wood tannins popping on the finish. The mid-palate texture is smooth and supple, showing excellent wild cherry and rhubarb flavors in a refined, silky style. The wood cuts the finish short and is really just a bit... Read More

  • Fedrizzi Cipriano Teroldego Rotaliano Due Vigneti 2011


    A touch closed on the nose with some wood covering flinty and floral aromas, which blossom in the glass and are joined by very fresh and fruity red berry notes. Soft and broad on entry, this offers up very bright and juicy blackberry and plum fruit with light tannins and perhaps a touch of wood-induced sweetness on the back end. Finishes with a ...

  • Campo Maseri di Villa Varda Teroldego Rotaliano 2010


    This offers up a complex bouquet filled with subtle herbal notes and hints of tea and moss. Caraway and spice over gentle fresh fruit aromas make me think of used or larger format oak barrels. Lighter-bodied than many on the palate, this is open and giving with lean and focused precision to the mid-palate. Shows some balsamic complexity and ligh... Read More

  • Teroldego Rotaliano Endrizzi 2010


    This is a touch soft on the nose with very pure fruit but also a touch of VA. There are lovely, complex notes of rye, herbs, wild cherry and red currant fruits, all framed with a hint of toast and lifted by the VA. Smooth and lightly gritty on the palate, this relies on the tannins to add some freshness to the palate. Shows off pure cherry fruit... Read More

  • De Vescovi Ulzbach Teroldego 2010


    This offers up a bit of nuttiness on the nose over a base of clay soil tones, which frame the sour berry, mulberry fruit quite well. Theres a top note of wild herbs along with an umami-rich note of speck and fish sauce. Fleshy and a bit sweet in the mouth, this packs in lots of rich blackberry and black raspberry flavors over firm, slightly dry ... Read More

  • Zeni Teroldego Rotaliano Lealbere 2010


    Deeply fruited and perfumed on the nose with full on blackberry fruit. Framed with dark, oily herbs, liquory plum top notes and very toasty, roasted fruit notes. Big and opulent on entry, though with terrific acidity and ripe, soft fruit tannins in fine balance. This is a little bit of a fruit bomb filled with plum, blackberry and pomegranate fl... Read More
