      “Tradition” St. Magdalener Tradition Alto Adige DOC 2018

      "Once the St. Magdalener, a traditional cuvée from the two autochthonous grape varieties Vernatsch and Lagrein, played not only a very important role in South Tyrolean viticulture but was also one of the best known Italian red wines. But even today this fine-fruity and characteristically stylish red wine, which is named after the wine-growing area around the wine village of St. Magdalena, has many connoisseurs and is currently being rediscovered by many a connoisseur". Rudi Kofler (cellar master Cantina Terlano)

      A deep ruby red in the nose with a clear superficial fruit of black elderberries and cherries, rounded off by a bitter almond aroma and hints of violets. Fruity in taste, soft and elegant on the palate with a balanced acidity structure and a low tannin content for the Vernatsch variety. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Tradition" Chardonnay Alto Adige DOC 2018

      “Tradition” Chardonnay Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Slim, very typical South Tyrolean Chardonnay. The glass immediately reveals the character of the international grape variety and the typicality of Alto Adige. We think that's pretty much the biggest thing in this price range. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Packaged in a tall, thin Alsatian bottle, the 2018 Alto Adige Chardonnay Tradition offers light and fragrant varietal tones of citrus, white melon and chalky mineral. The wine delivers more density and volume than your standard lean-bodied white, and the mouthfeel boasts long freshness and bright fruity intensity. Try it with the region's famous canederli: flour gnocchi with speck, egg, parsley and parmesan." Robert Parker

      Beautiful South Tyrolean Pinot Grigio, straw yellow, fruity and delicate in fragrance, dry and very pleasant in taste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A creamy, light-bodied white, with mouthwatering acidity driving a finely knit range of Honeycrisp apple, Marcona almond and orchard blossom flavors, showing a rich and tangy streak of salinity that lingers on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Cantina Terlano shows a Midas Touch, even with a workhorse grape like this. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Tradition is a vibrant and zesty expression from Northern Italy. The wine clearly shows the high-altitude characteristics of mountain flowers, citrus, white peach and Granny Smith apple. This slightly cooler vintage delivers a sharp and streamlined approach. Serve it with the local half-moon ravioli known as Schlutzkrapfen, filled with apple and speck." Robert Parker

      "Sliced apples and cream, as well as hints of sliced pineapple on the nose. Medium body and a layered, creamy texture with green apples and limes on the aftertaste." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Cantina Terlano
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Cantina Terlano

    The South Tyrolean municipality of Terlan, about halfway between Merano and Bolzano, combines the advantages of an alpine and Mediterranean climate. The combination of basic microclimatic conditions and the particularities of the soil promotes complex, highly personal and extremely long-lasting wines with a typical regional character, which are well preserved in the Terlan winery. As early as 1893, 24 winegrowers founded the production, sales and marketing association in this small village in the Etsch Valley, thus laying the foundation stone for one of the first winegrowers' cooperatives in South Tyrol. Today, the cooperative already has 143 members who cultivate a total of 162 hectares of vineyards in a committed and environmentally friendly manner.

    The south- and south-west-facing, sun-drenched vineyards of the comrades, which begin at the foot of the Tschöggelberg mountain range, extend from gentle hilly areas in the valley floor reaching up to 250 metres to steep and 900-metre-high mountain slopes. The soils are sandy, stony and permeable. The lower sites are particularly suitable for Lagrein, Cabernet and other heavy red wines. Pinot blanc and white varieties, on the other hand, can be found in the higher geographical areas. During the ripening period, warm days and cool nights guarantee a balance of sugar, acidity and aromas. Every single vine of the winegrowers belonging to the Verbund is carefully classified in order to be able to meticulously determine the production quantity.

    As one of the four managing directors of the Terlan winery, cellarmaster Rudi Kofler has a keen sense for developing autochthonous and internationally significant, strong, well-structured white and red wines with DOC status, which have a rich and ripe fruit component, in the sanctum of the house. The development and marketing of the - around 70 percent white - drops takes place in three quality lines.

    Unique in Italy is the Cantina Terlano Wine Archive, with more than 20,000 bottles, the oldest of which dates back to the year of its foundation and each year a special tranche as "rarità" in small editions of approx. 3,500 bottles. The cooperative, which was published in 2015 by the journal "wine industry" was named Italy's number one for the third time in a row in a cooperative test and its chairman Georg Höller also works in the same function for the Association of South Tyrolean Wine Cooperatives. In 2008, he merged with Andrian Winery, which, however, retains its own brand. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The meticulous classification of the vineyards of the individual winegrowers reflects the intimate relationship of this cooperative to its production area. The perfect interpretation of the various terroirs is the result of the stable and sustained success of these mineral, progressive wines, which glide calmly through the years, as shown by the stocks of old bottles that Sebastian Stocker has put back since time immemorial.“Gambero Rosso
