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.
James Suckling 90 points. Wine Advocate 89 points. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Soll shows the faintest of faint copperish hues in terms of its appearance, with light gold at the back. The wine is rich in honey, pear and Golden Delicious apple. This is a lean and crisp white wine with slightly more heft and maturity to its aromatic profile. Mineral-driven dolomitic aromas come in at the back. ML Jun 2019.
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.

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.

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.”
Wine Advocate 93 points. The 2017 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Nussbaumer is beautifully fragrant and redolent of honeysuckle and tropical fruit. The honey-like intensity is incredible. This medium-weight white shows a distant trace of residual sugar. It would make a nice pairing with rice pudding and raisins. ML Jul 2019.

Morgante only deal with two elements....magnificent olive oil and the best Nero d'Avola grapes on planet Earth. Enigmatic, eccentric and unexpected… Bianco di Morgante is a white wine vinified from red grapes.

Bianco Bianco is a naturally semi-sparkling wine made for Rocca delle Macìe in the province of Trento, within one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of grapes intended for the production of spumante. Once harvested, the Chardonnay (100%) grapes are fermented without the skins, and then the base wine undergoes natural second fermentation. Bianco Bianco is fresh and fragrant, with overtones of just-ripe fruit. It has a fine, persistent perlage that makes it suitable both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to fried vegetable or fish platters.
