Editor note: Youthful, deep and very firm, somewhat floral aroma of white and yellow fruits with herbal notes, some elderflower and distinct minerality. Taut, very juicy, pure-toned, dense fruit, herbaceous-vegetable and slightly peppery spiciness, lively acidity and fine grip, persistent, deep and multilayered, restrained power, clear minerality, blackberry nuances in the background, peppery tones, again also elderberry, still undeveloped, very good to long, firm, complex, tart-juicy finish with grip and again plenty of minerality.

Editor note: Firm and tart, quite deep, yet still restrained bouquet with white and green fruity aromas, fresh planty tones, some dry herbs, flowers, nuts and quite clearly fennel with mineral and also a little ethereal notes. Ripe, tightly knit, warm, quite dry fruit, has melting but also a lot of grip, slightly smoky nuances, dark spice and lots of minerality, fennel and elderberry on the palate, persistent, deep and multilayered, still barely developed, restrained power, a hint of exoticism, ethereal notes, fine acidity really marbling the wine, long, dense, spicy and juicy, quite complex finish with clear minerality. Great.

The Rhaeto-Romans planted the first vineyards here as early as 1,000 BC, making South Tyrol one of the oldest German-speaking wine-growing regions.

The German emperors who went to Rome for their coronation got to know and appreciate South Tyrolean wine on their travels. A decline...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, with origins dating back at least to 1,000 BC. At that time, the Etruscans appeared in central Italy and settled areas of the four present-day regions of Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The origin of Italian wine culture lies primarily in Greek colonisation, which brought Greek viticultural culture to the peninsula beginning in the 10th century BC on the island of Sicily as well as Campania and Calabria. The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the land...
