Trentino-Alto Adige Wines
Trentino-Alto Adige is Italy's northernmost wine region, located at the Austrian border. The Trentino-Alto Adige wines reflect the region’s cultural complexity and heritage. While Germanic varieties such as Müller-Thurgau and Sylvaner reign supreme, the local Schiava grape follows up close. There are also increasing quantities of local Italian wines made with international varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and the red Bordeaux grapes.
Chardonnay is the most famous white wine grape variety in the world. The best Chardonnay wines are generally to be found in Burgundy (especially Chablis) and California but many good quality examples will be also found in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and parts of South America. If maturated in oak barrels the Chardonnay wine will reveal notes of vanilla, butter, smoke and hints of sweet spices. Meanwhile unoaked Chardonnay wines acquire mineral, citrusy and fruity flavours.
