The Indigenous Trentino Grape Varieties - Red

  • Marzemino

    The Marzemino grape occupies, for its excellent quality, a prominent place in Trentino’s viniculture panorama. The origins of the vine variety have been lost over the centuries. It is probable that the vine variety comes from Marzemin, a village in Carinthia. Marzemino is widespread especially in the areas situated on the right side of the river Adige and, more precisely, in those hilly areas which range from Nomi to Pomarolo, to Isera and Mori. In Vallagarina it finds ideal climatic conditions as well as the ideal soil profile which give it its unique organoleptic characteristics. To differentiate it from other similar products it is called “Marzemino Gentile”. The Marzemino Trentino wine’s title “gentile” is justified by the product’s unrivalled excellence.

  • Teroldego

    Teroldego is one of Trentino’s local wine and has always been considered the prince wines “par excellence” by our oenology. The historical sources cite it as being present already in 1300 and during the Council of Trent it was tasted by the representatives of the clergy mid 16th century. In terms of its quality the best production comes from the northern area of Trento, in the plains of Rotaliano characterised by alluvial sediments transported by the Noce torrent and the river Adige. This is how the Teroldego Rotaliano DOC became the first wine with the guarantee of origin label, recognized in this province since 1971.

The Indigenous Trentino Grape Varieties -White

  • Gewürztraminer

    From the XIII century to the first modern era “Traminer” was the most popular South Tyrolean wine. Throughout the centuries the vine Gewürztraminer spread, starting off from the area of origin, Tramin, to the rest of the wine-making world. In the hilly vineyards of Kurtatsch which are south facing, a very aromatic wine finds its ideal habitat: limestone and clay terrain! Here a full bodied wine develops with a vigorous character, and a very dense and strong aroma. A pronounced mineral trait confers to this almost oily body,  which smells of roses, magnolia and stone, a persistent freshness.

  • Kerner

    The Kerner vineyards consists of an aromatic white berry, created in 1929 in Germany. The botanist August Herold crossed Schiava Grossa (known in Germany as Trollilnger) and Riesling from Renon, obtaining Kerner, and was thus named in honour of Justinus Kerner, German poet and doctor known for writing poems about wine. The Kerner wine is similar to the Riesling from which its aromas come from, to which a plant related note is added which makes it slightly more textured. The Kerner wine has a late germination and therefore it is less vulnerable to spring time freezing. If grown on slopes which are sufficiently sunny it may even reach altitudes of 8-900m a.s.l. and this makes it a vine variety which is ideal for mountain viticulture. It is a vigorous vine variety and this makes a green harvest necessary. In Italy this exists in South Tyrol, especially in the Isarco Valley, where the wine has gained the designation of origin (DOC) label of authenticity in 1993. Its intrinsic acidity makes it ideal for making sparkling wine, which being an aromatic vine, is made above all with the Charmat method.

  • Manzoni

    The Manzoni Bianco vine, also known as the Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13, is the most famous among the clones invented and tested by Prof. Luigi Manzoni, who at the time was headmaster of the Enological school of Conegliano, and carried out experiments during the 30’s on how to genetically improve the vines through crossbreeding and hybridizing. The Manzoni Bianco 6.0.13, is a fully fledged indigenous vine of the province of Trento, and is born thanks to the cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco. Today it is cultivated above in the Triveneto regions and is part of the grape varieties of some disciplines such as the  wines DOCG  Bianco dei Colli di Conegliano, and DOC Breganze Bianco and Trentino Bianco,  as well as various wines labelled ‘guarantee of origin’ in which it is vinified alone. Its characteristic is to supply wines with a good fixed acidity and an interesting bouquet.

  • Müller Thurgau

    The Müller Thurgau vine is a cross between vines of white berries created in 1882 by the Swiss Hermann Müller, from Thurgau, while he worked on genetically improving vines, between 1876 and 1891, at the German institute of Geisenheim and ending at Thurgau towards the end of the century. Up to not many years ago it was believed that the vines used to start off were Riesling and Sylvaner, while recent studies on DNA show that the second vine is Chasselas. The Müller-Thurgau vine is widespread in Europe, especially in Germany, Switzerland and Italy, it was planted even in countries which are new to oenology such as New Zealand. In Italy it is cultivated in almost all regions, but the main ones are in Trentino-South Tyrol, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Veneto.

  • Nosiola

    The Nosiola vine is cultivated in Trentino, more precisely in the area of Toblino and in the Valle dei Laghi, on terraces called “frate”, but also at Lavis in the province of Trento. Its name is attributable to the notes of hazelnut present in the wine (from the dialect term  “nosela”), or else it is linked to the crunchiness and the golden colour of its berries. In Trentino it is one of the local vines which is most distinguished, so much so that it is part of the etymology of many white wines and it is the base of the wine, Trentino Nosiola DOC. From the grapes of the Nosiola vine the more famous sweet wine of the region, Trentino Vino Santo, is made, and it is obtained through the natural drying on the trellis of these grapes and with a minimum alcoholic strength of 16%.
