Andriano, Muller Thurgau 2019

Cantina Andriano

2018
Alto Adige

Pale yellow with an aromatic fragrance of peach, pineapple and tropical fruits. The wine has a notable acidity, followed by a fruity and freshness finish. Elegant with a good aging potential.

Andriano's 2011 Muller Thurgau bristles with considerable energy, such a rarity for the year. Lime, white flowers, crushed rocks and mint all take shape in a Muller Thurgau that is bursting with varietal and regional character. This is an utterly delicious, affordable white from Andrian.

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige is characterized by the alpine peaks which soar for many thousands of feet above the Adige river Valley. The region follows the Adige river along its north-south course down from the Alps towards the plains, winding past various valleys and lakes.

Trentino-Alto Adige produces 8 DOCs and has a wide range of varieties: Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, and international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among the most widely used. The standard red Trentino Rosso is made from the Cabernet grapes, with Merlot also thrown in to make it a near-complete Bordeaux Blend. Its white Trentino Bianco counterpart has Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco as its base, with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller-Thurgau and Manzoni Bianco as permitted auxiliaries.

Grape varieties In addition to the dominant local varieties Schiava and Lagrein, there's more and more interest for Teroldego and Pinot Noir amongst red grapes, while the main white grape vaeriteis are: Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer and some very fine examples of Sauvignon and Pinot Bianco, with other indigenous grapes like Nosiola.
