Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: excellent (90 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 22 March, 2021
Editor note: Clear, polished, bright, quite fine fragrance with yellow-fruity and herbaceous-planty aromas, floral nuances and minerality. Ripe, juicy, quite polished, very slightly warm yellow fruit, very fine acidity and delicate grip, relatively dense and persistent on the palate, fine spice and smoky tones, hints of light wood, distinct minerality, certain melting, good depth, nutty hints, very good to long, juicy and somewhat spicy, again also quite mineral finish. Clearly underestimated by us in its youth

Editor note: Translate to English Recht vegetabile, leicht zwiebelige Nase mit gelbfruchtigen und ein wenig grasigen Noten, etwas Holunder, Kapern sowie nussigen und erdigen Tönen. Relativ herbe, etwas saftige Frucht im Mund, vegetabile bis bitterlich-kräuterige Töne, recht lebendige Säure, ein wenig Holunder und Maracuja im Hintergrund, gewisse Kraft und Nachhaltigkeit, eher kühle Art, erdige bis kreidige mineralische Anklänge, recht fester Bau mit viel Zug, sehr guter Abgang. Hat noch Zeit.

The northern area of the Italian double region Trentino-South Tyrol; the southern area is Trentino. The Italian name is Alto Adige. It corresponds geographically to the Autonomous Province of Bolzano (Italian: Bolzano). 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. Here the Romans learned from the Celts how to use wooden wine barrels for storage and transport. In the Middle Ages, viticulture reached its peak. 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 ideal for...
