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 Pinot Grigio Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT 2011

    Snoothrank:

    On the first tasting of this wine I was unimpressed. Too citrusy for a pinot grigio and I don't think it's been oaked very well. Not much of a finish at all & you hardly know you drank anything. I let it sit in the fridge over night; chilling and having breathed, it definitely has a little more complexity, a bit more of that slate-like quality t... Read More

  • 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

  • Gewürztraminer DOC Campaner 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 ...
