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. Absolutely delicious. Winemaker Carlo Ferrini (Casanova dei Neri). I wish they had told us this earlier! 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%.

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.

If you love crisp, transparent Chardonnay with lifted intensity and purity, this is your wine. Production is 40,000 bottles. ML Sep 2020.

Matched with Jamaican Chicken & Lime Crema at Burnt Ends Dinner #burntends The Müller Thurgau variety, also known as Rivaner or Riesling X Sylvaner, is a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royal.

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 91+. The Cantina Tramin 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Moriz is another terrific entry-level wine from Northern Italy. You simply can't get this level of quality and freshness, especially where white wines are concerned. The signature grape of Alto Adige is Pinot Bianco, and you get pristine aromas of peach, quince and white melon here. Those fruity tones are followed by crushed stone, saffron and almond. This wine is aged in steel tank with a smaller 25% that goes into large oak casks. This helps to develop the mouthfeel of the wine. Some 60,000 bottles were released. ML Sep 2020. Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards...
James Suckling 93 points. "A pretty, dry gewurz with dried pears, rose soap and spice, such as dried cloves. Medium to full body. Creamy and dusty texture. Fantastic wine. Drink now." JS Wine Advocate 91 points. Here's a surprise wine from Cantina Tramin that I have never previously encountered. The entry-level 2019 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Selida (with a large production of 200,000 bottles made) draws its fruit from a sloped 20-hectare parcel with inclines that rise from 300 to 500 meters above sea level with direct exposures to the mountain sunshine and cool nighttime temperatures. These conditions shape the focus and precision that you...
WA 89+. The Cantina Tramin 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay is a streamlined and informal wine that hits all the basic pleasure points. This entry-level Chardonnay is made in a simple manner, aged and fermented in stainless steel, and released early in order to capture the youthful character of the fruit. An ample 120,000 bottles were released at the beginning of the year. The wine is tonic and fresh with citrusy aromas, white rose and crunchy pear. All that pretty freshness would pair next to a plate of grilled prawns or fried calamari rings. ML Sept 2020.
From vines 250m-500m above sea level. Fresh aromatics wine at its best. White wine with a greenish-yellow to pale yellow colour Müller Thurgau is an engaging white wine with delicate herbal notes and spice. It tastes fresh and aromatic.

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.

Decanter Magazine Italian White Wine of the Year 2019. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc with a little Vermentino and Viognier, this is a white from Ornellaia that shows again how this estate can combine classicism and flair. A fine-boned structure, and real energy, combined with opulent fruit, and a long, herb-tinged, vibrant finish. A surprising, and delicious, white.

Bright yellow colour, the overwhelming aromatic is of freshly cut white flowers. The palate has hints of stone fruit and a touch of citrus. Crisp, dry finish. Although mainly consumed whilst young, the wine has structure to cellar for 5-8 years. Serve as cold as you like.
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.
