Trentino: deep into the Alps
Trentino Alto Adige’s three most planted varieties are Chardonnay (22%), Pinot Grigio (19%), and Schiava (9%), but the region is home for over 15 varieties including Gewürztraminer, Kerner, Lagrein, Pinot Noir, and Riesling.
The red Teroldego is a well-regarded autochthonous grape. Try the Fedrizzi Cipriano Teroldego Rotaliano “Due Vigneti” for an excellent example brimming of raspberries, cherries and oak spices.
Whites are very well represented with wines like Battistotti Trentino Gewürtztraminer that’s both flowery aromatic and mineral, and the Vallarom Vallagarina Chardonnay with an oaky, creamy and fruit-forward palate.
The Trentino Alto Adige is all about quality. Wines are superb renditions of Alpine wine — always mineral, layered and expressive. The best wineries have been tending the same vines for generations, and you’ll find unique grapes not grown anywhere else on the planet.
For textural reds, sparkling wines and refreshing whites, the Trentino Alto Adige has something for every palate.
