The 2015 vintage won Italian White wine of the year fro the Somelliers' Association. Variety: 100% Grechetto First vintage produced: 1989 Aging: 3 months in steel and minimum 3 months aging in the bottle Aroma: intense perfumes of exotic fruit and yellow peach, floral notes of freesia and hawthorn, pleasing chalkiness on the finish Taste: full, fresh, with a long persistance Serving suggestions: great aperitif wine or consumed with seafood, veal or poultry dishes. Aging potential: 3-5 years. This underpriced stunner is well known to Italians as a wonderfully refreshing white wine to be had chilled during summer. It is all about minerality...
We have been looking for a good example of this style for a long time and we think we have it nailed with this one. Too often you will find sparkling moscato expressed as overly sweet, cloying and boring. This beauty however has a great acid backbone that lifts the fruit, tames the sweetness in the middle palate and delivers a long and deliciously sweet finish with no hint of cloying. Delightful as an aperatif, served ice cold.
Dessert wine. Golden tending to amber. Saffron, iodine note, candied apricot, honey and custard on the nose. Beautiful acid component. Mineral and toasted almond finish. Delicious. Malvasia 40%, Riesling 20%, Traminer 20%, Petit Manseng 20%.
James Suckling 91 points. Wine Advocate 91 points. I have not tasted much Gewürztraminer from Cantina Kaltern, so this is a real treat. The 2018 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Campaner is enormously fragrant and bright with a very specific and focused delivery that is not easy to achieve with this grape. Gewürztraminer aromas can appear all over the place, or become unruly, if not managed correctly. That's not the case here. White flower, jasmine and passion fruit are followed by a glossy note of latex or natural rubber that is true to the variety. There is a touch of sweet softness on the close along with tangy green herbal accents. Drink...
TASTING NOTES – brilliant straw-yellow – full of tropical fruit aromas, especially pineapple and banana, just a hint of oak, with vanilla and butter rounding off this expressive nose – full-bodied and balanced on the palate, long lingering finish with echoes of ripe fruit.
Wine Advocate 92+. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Vial offers an immediate mineral note that pops bright from the bouquet and is followed by honey, pear and white peach. However, the beauty of the wine remains in the fact that you can so clearly recognize those dolomitic mineral nuances. Mountain herb and dried sage also make distant appearances. I highly recommend this beautiful wine. ML Sep 2019.

Vinous 91 points “Golden-tinged pale yellow. Clean, bright, fresh aromas and flavors of ripe apple, grapefruit and sweet spices. Closes long and mellow with repeating nuances of sweet spices. A blend of more than 60% Chardonnay, plus Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer.” Ian Agata for Vinous. Feb 2020.
Vinous 93 points. “Luminous straw-green. Multifaceted, complex aromas of ripe pear, green apple, liquid minerals, peony and buttercups. Showcases a very elegant mouthfeel hinting at resin, yellow apple, pear, honey and minerals, complicated by white flowers. There’s sneaky depth and concentration here. Finishes long with hints of spicy vanillin and wet stones.” Ian Agata for Vinous, Feb 2020.
tasting notes: The Gewürztraminer presents itself in straw-yellow colour with golden reflec- tions. It is a fruit-forward wine with an array of tropical fruits and spicy notes, accompanied by the characteristic scent of roses. On the palate, this wine develops a discrete sweetness, sus- tained by a juicy acidity. It has a long finish with hints of ripe fruit and spices. food pairing: This Gewürztraminer is excellent as an aperitif and pairs well with starters based on fish, seafood and pâté. It enhances spicy and savoury dishes and is a lovely accompani- ment to vegetable and white meat recipes. Have a glass of Gewürztraminer at the end...
Wine Enthusiast. “This offers delicate scents of white wild flower and honeydew melon while the tangy palate shows pear, lemon drop and a hint of cantaloupe. Fresh acidity gives it a crisp, clean finish.”
The new name "Sant'Antimo" is allowed only to wines made from grapes produced in the Montalcino area, a further enrichment to the already existing prestige of this wine. Ghiaie Bianche is a Chardonnay fermented in barrique from the grapes produced in the territory of Col d'Orcia, which gives the consumer the opportunity to appreciate the charm of Montalcino in the best variety of aromatic white grapes. In this wine we find all the depth and immensity of the Mediterranean summer.
Colour: Straw yellow with greenish hues. Bouquet: Ample, complex and pleasantly fruited with the typical floral notes of pears and white peach. Flavour: Fresh and zesty wine with pleasant acidity. Fruity and persistent aftertaste.
Rocca di Frassinello is a joint venture between the mercurial Castellare di Castellina and the mighty house of Lafite Rothschild. A vine that gives of its best in the Maremma as well as in Sardinia. The nose has a fine and delicate hint of fruit, with aromatic citrus notes that give the wine great freshness. It has a balanced taste, well-supported by its acidity and mineral component that give it sapidity and persistence. A versatile white, suitable for grilled fish, shellfish and white meats.
Classic textbook pinot grigio at its best. Pinot Grigio is more than just the Italian name for Pinot Gris. Although the two names refer to a single grape variety, the wine styles they represent are clearly distinct from one another. The difference between Pinot Grigio wines and Pinot Gris wines is so clear and well-established that the two are often treated as if they were two distinct varieties. The refreshing Pinot Grigio style has enjoyed great success in various countries, most recently the United States, (where it is fondly nicknamed "Greej") and Australia. The most common descriptors of the style are "light", "crisp" and "dry". These...
