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.
James Suckling 91 points. A blend of Sauvignon blanc and viognier. Brancaia Il Bianco is a fresh and floral white characterised by a straw yellow color. The nose opens with a pleasant fruity bouquet that is transmitted to the fresh and delicate palate, with a pleasantly balanced acidity. Fruity character with plenty of dried-apples, mangoes and pineapple . Medium body and bright acidity. Fresh finish. Perfect to accompany fish and shellfish dishes, it is ideal in combination with first courses, mushroom risotto and white meats.

Wine Advocate 93+. The Cantina Kaltern 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay offers a fresh and light expression of the grape in which the purity of the naked fruit is given highest priority. Citrus aromas are underlined here with white almond, minty apple, wild rose and delicate orchard fruit. The wine presents a distinct mineral side with crushed oyster shell and sea salt.

Wine Advocate 90 points. The Cantina Kaltern 2019 Alto Adige Sauvignon opens to a luminous and fresh appearance, backed by vivid aromas of citrus, passion fruit and minty apple. This is a pristine and clearly defined Sauvignon Blanc that promotes the tonic, fresh and tangy qualities of high-altitude winemaking in the Italian Dolomites. If you want a classic expression of a grape matched beautifully to its territory, look no further than this value wine. ML Sep 2020.
Wine Advocate 92 points. The Cantina Tramin 2020 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Moriz is a relatively new entry in my annual tasting calendar and is a wine I'd encourage readers to try, especially if they are enamored with the crispness and freshness that comes so naturally to Italian Pinot Bianco. There is a spicy element to the wine with crisp apple and white licorice, but you also get crushed mineral and drying limestone that would be lovely with fried whole-belly clams and a green side salad. The best news is the terrific value you get with Moriz in this release of 70,000 bottles.ML Sept 2021. Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards...
Wine Advocate 94 points. A blend of 65% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon, 10% Pinot Bianco and 5% Gewürztraminer, the Cantina Tramin 2019 Alto Adige Stoan is simply fantastic. Aged for 11 months in large oak vats, that Gewürztraminer signature does pop through even at only five parts per hundred. It carries a medium mouthfeel, but this wine really gives you a full and beautiful bouquet. You've got a steady 10-year drinking window in this ample release of 55,000 bottles. ML Sept 2021. WINERY NOTES: Stoan is a unique wine of its kind reflecting the complexity and potential of our region. It is a lively blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot...
Decanter 94 points. Unterebner Pinot grigio was launched in 1989 as a symbol of Cantina Tramin’s pursuit of excellence. It reveals the surprising finesse and elegance of this grape variety, with a decisive alpine twist, beyond any fashion and trends. "Unterebner delivers far and beyond your standard Pinot Grigio…. It boasts more complexity than you might expect!" Robert Parker, March 2015
Wine advocate 90 points.

These are clean and zippy results offered at a terrific low price. ML Sep 2021. The grapes are harvested by hand in small bins and gently pressed immediately following harvest.

This wine has just set a record. The 2018 vintage is the 20th in a row that has received the coveted 3 Bicchieri award from Gambero Rosso. Respect. Decanter Magazine 96 points. "An unswervingly sure-footed Gewurtraminer, Rosewater infused nectarine and yellow peach aromas and flavours are accompanied by buttery notes of brazi nut toffee, lime marmalade and aromatic ginger, turmeric ad anise spices.

The single most awarded wine by Gambero Rosso. 16 years straight of the top award. James Suckling 93 points. "Very ripe tropical-fruit nose with hints of turkish delight, smoked bacon and sandalwood. Powerful with a lot of textural complexity, but no hint of bombast. Indeed, the bitter side of this grape is very well integrated in the rich, mellow palate. Drink or hold." JS.

Wine Advocate 96+ points. As the saying goes, good things come in small packages. The Cantina Tramin 2017 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Vendemmia Tardiva Terminum is made with late-harvest fruit. The wine is packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle and only 4,200 bottles exist. The barrique-aged wine opens to a dark golden color with amber and copper highlights. It would be impossible to exaggerate the intensity of the honey, dried apricot and candied fruit aromas that rise from the bouquet. The one-hectare vineyard is located at a high 450 meters above sea level. The fruit is left to dry on the vines, and only when Botrytis cinerea (or the...

An unusual mix of 65% Trebbiano and 35% Malvasia. All hand picked grapes then fermented with natural ambient yeasts in clay amphoras to retain as much freshness as possible. Aromas of sage and bergamoth intertwine, leading to a crisp, refreshing finish. Very different and very good.

100% Chardonnay. 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 bead that makes it suitable both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to fried vegetable or fish platters.

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...
