Trentino Wine

 

Trentino is the southernmost province of the Trentino-Alto Adige region in the north of Italy. With its capital Trento, this is the culturally Italian portion of the region. Alto Adige is to its north, some call it Sudtirol, and is mostly German-speaking, long considered part of Austria, which is now on its northern border. 
 
While not as mountainous as Alto-Adige, the climate and scenery in Trentino is still largely influenced by the Alps, which form a rain shadow over the valley. This creates a warm and dry microclimate, with mountain breezes cooling the vineyards down at night, and various lakes and the Adige river providing irrigation. 
 
Trentino encompasses several DOCs that represent specific varietals and/or styles and their location, some with German equivalent names: Teroldego Rotaliano, Caldero (Kalderer), Casteller and Valdidige (Etschtaler). Teroldego is an indigenous red varietal that produces deep, dark, yet fruity wines. The other three DOCs mentioned Read more »

  • Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie Vigneti Delle Dolomiti 2013

    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

  • Colavita Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Candied lemon notes and aromas of honey dominate the nose along with gentle orange fruit gel notes. This is soft and easy going in the mouth. A subtle nutty note punctuates the rather neutral citrus flavors that are rather flat on the palate with no discernible acidity and a very modest finish. 78pts Read More

  • 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 Granato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Oily and smoky on the nose with lots lots of pipe tobacco and used pipe briar aromas. Rich, seamless, and powerful in the mouth. This shows lots of depth on the palate though some wood tannins do intrude on the midplane. Ultimately one finds more power, less detail here and the wine wraps up with a tough, tannic finish. Theres lots of red frui... Read More

  • Foradori Teroldego Morei 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of obvious VA on the nose adds lift and brilliance to the aromas of dried herb, raw nut meats, flowers and a bit of sour berry fruit. Riper tannins here than in the Sgarzon make for a somewhat denser and richer expression of Teroldego with bright wild blackberry, blueberry fruit filling the palate supported by lots of acid and soft tannins...
