Behind Alto Adige’s wines lies a great deal of work done by hand by engaged winegrowers committed to the idea of terroir. What emerges here are not flashy trends, but rather authentic wines with original character. It is especially the minerally fresh and clearly structured white wines which belong to the peak of Italian winegrowing. But Alto Adige’s indigenous varieties of Schiava (Vernatsch) and Lagrein are also currently experiencing a glittering renaissance.
