Meran Val Venosta Schiava Sonnenberg 2011

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Alto Adige is the northern part of the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy that borders the Austrian Tyrol. It was ceded to Italy only after the First World War. This region owes its Italian name of “Alto-Adige” to the river Adige that flows through on its way to the Adriatic. The sleepy village of Termeno/Tramin is thought to be the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewurztraminer. In 2004 Will Stűrz, the winemaker at Tramin, was nominated “Italian winemaker of the Year” by the prestigious Gambero Rosso and makes some of the best white wines in Italy. Cantina Tramin proudly hold the “Stella”, the star awarded to a winery for achieving the prestigious “3 Bicchieri” 10 times! Grapes : Lagrein Region : Italy / Alto Adige DOC Maker : Willi Sturz Notes : Plum, raspberry and cherry with a hint of spicy minerality and chocolate with a pleasant tartness on the palate and a lingering finish. Serve : At room temperature with roast meats, game and mature cheese ABV : 12.5%
