Gewürztraminer
gewuerztraminer
As the name already reveals, Gewürztraminer originated in the Alto Adige winegrowing village of Tramin. “Traminer” was a term known throughout the entire German-speaking world as early as the thirteenth century. But for a long time, it nearly sank into oblivion. Today it is one of the most requested of the Italian white wines from Alto Adige. Its sumptuous spectrum of scents, with notes of rose petals, cloves, lychees, and other tropical fruits, makes Gewürztraminer the absolute embodiment of an aromatic wine variety. With its intense color, comparatively high alcohol content, and luxuriant texture, it is the epitome of a meditation wine.
