The diversity of Alto Adige’s red wines
These red wines – including two indigenous varieties – possess both a tradition and a future
Alto Adige does not produce fashionable wines, but rather authentic wines of distinctive character that include both traditional red wines and international varieties. Vernatsch and Lagrein are considered to be native to the region and together cover almost 20% of the region’s winegrowing areas. Burgundy varieties have also been cultivated in Alto Adige since 1840, with classic Bordeaux varieties such as Merlot or Cabernet arriving in 1890. The diversity of these red wines develops with amazing finesse in Alto Adige’s terroir: sometimes fruity, sometimes complex, but always sensational.
