South Tyrol's wine history goes back to well beyond the Roman period. Our region was part of the Roman province of Rhaetia and its wines were in high demand among the eternal city's patricians. Now, some 2000 years later our South Tyrolean wines are more popular than ever thanks to a 20 year-long strive to maximise quality in both the vineyard and cellar. This involves drastically reducing vineyard yields in favour of quality, rigorously selecting grapes and adopting winemaking techniques which express each grape's varietal character to the full. Rainer Loacker chose and decided to follow these principles from the very beginning and gradually introduced biological cultivation methods, in the Schwarhof estate, which was documented as long ago as 1334, and in the nearby Kohlerhof estate. Both are in the heart of the classic St. Magdalena vineyard area. He has been producing superb wines from these vineyards since 1979. Their superlative quality is due on the one hand to the climatic conditions and soils Read more »

  • Tenute Loacker Raetinello IGT Alto Adige 2011


    The wine was served at around 12°C (53°F). Raetinello had a bright ruby red color. There were aromas of fresh red fruits (strawberry and cherry) and bitter almonds. To be honest nose was nothing, too exciting. The palate, however, was quite unique. Soft acidity, not tannic at all, very refreshing. A few bitter aromas. The finish was not very lon... Read More
