• Vernatsch (Schiava) Alto Adige DOC 2019

      Vernatsch (Schiava) Alto Adige DOC 2019

      This Schiava has a typical fruity bouquet of cherry, raspberry and strawberry. On the palate it is fruity and mineral and has a firm, slender structure. A fresh companion for every day. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Schiava grape produces softly contoured and delicate red wines that offer a mild texture and lean appearance not unlike a traditional Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The Peter Zemmer 2019 Alto Adige Vernatsch Schiava opens to aromas of wild raspberry, rose, lilac and white licorice. The wine's smooth and silky mouthfeel and its fresh berry flavors call out for some homemade fried chicken. With 14,000 bottles made, you get terrific value." Robert Parker

      "The 2017 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Furggl is an inky dark and super concentrated red wine that might pair with pork stuffed with sweet prunes and spice. Those flavors comply perfectly with the aromas that rise from the bouquet of this inky dark red wine. The Riserva offers good freshness and mild tannins that are downplayed next to the super rich and succulent texture of the grape. This hot vintage delivers extra intensity and fiber." Robert Parker

      “Vigna Giatl” Pinot Grigio Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      Beautiful Pinot Gris Riserva from selected single vineyards of the valley floor around the village center of Kurtinig an der Weinstraße. Giatl matures in small wooden barrels for 12 months on the yeast, which gives it complexity and finesse. Straw to golden yellow in the glass, with a powerful bouquet of ripe yellow fruits, strong, balanced and slightly salty on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright brilliant golden yellow. Inviting and rich on the nose, creamy tones following on yellow fruit, a hint of saffron, butter, light flint. Very rich and full on the palate with well-integrated wood, opens broad and creamy, creamy, gentle pressure, very long finish." Falstaff

      "A delightful white frames a beautiful interplay of dried citrus and dried mangoes, as well as vanilla and crumpets. Full-bodied and very powerful on the palate, which is ripe and textured yet cool and composed." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Riserva Giatl is a step above any Grigio you may have encountered recently. The wine offers pure aromas of peach, poached apple and light citrus. The vintage heat has added to the thickness and richness of the wine - and to its silky dense texture. Pair it with spicy Indian or Thai dishes." Robert Parker

    • "Vigna Crivelli" Chardonnay Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      “Vigna Crivelli” Chardonnay Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      This wine full of character comes from grapes of the top vineyard Crivelli from calcareous, gravelly-sandy soils. The favorable microclimate with high temperature fluctuations between day and night and strong downdrafts from the Fennberg influence the character of this crus. In addition, a daily wind from the south ensures good aeration of the berries and ideal sunlight promises excellent qualities for the grapes of this elegant grape variety.

      Crivelli matures in small wooden barrels for 12 months on the yeast, which gives it elegance and complexity. Golden yellow in the glass, fruity bouquet of tropical fruits with a hint of vanilla, powerful, balanced and slightly salty on the palate. A great Chardonnay with pleasant fullness and impressive length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "An oaky chardonnay, full of butter and cream, as well as dried apricots. Despite being quite round and full-bodied, a streak of pretty acidity works wonders on the otherwise large finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Alto Adige Chardonnay Riserva Vigna Crivelli offers textbook varietal aromas of creamy fruit and passion fruit. This wine is fermented and aged in oak, and you feel that extra padding and density as a result. These are some of the estate's most prized grapes from this single vineyard that was planted in 1992 to selected clones of Chardonnay. Only 4,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker

    • "Vigna Kofl" Pinot Nero Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      “Vigna Kofl” Pinot Nero Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      The wine comes from impressive altitudes (approx. 1,000m above sea level) at Koflhof in Aldein. Perfect southern exposure, ideal sunshine and the daily wind "Ora" provide for an optimal ripening of the grapes. Intense, sparkling ruby red. Refined bouquet of wild berries and sour fish. Warm, enveloping and compact on the palate, with present berry fruit and well integrated tannins. Long and smooth on the final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very juicy and rich red berries here, and succulent flavors of spicy red and dark berries. Smooth tannins." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Vigna Kofl (with only 3,000 bottles made) offers a slightly more spicy and densely concentrated expression of this beautiful grape. The wine shows a dark ruby color and a mid-weight style. Dark cherry and wild berry cede to light touches of cinnamon and clove. I am reminded of cloves embedded into the skin of an orange. This wine would pair with duck or game hen." Robert Parker

      "Spicy forrest fruited nose with flashes of chocolate and pepper. Luscious palate with rounded fruit and infused oak and spice." Decanter

    About the winemakersPeter ZemmerTrentino-South Tyrol
    Peter Zemmer

    In the village of Kurtinig (Cortina sulla strada del vino) in the South Tyrolean lowlands near the river Adige, with only 650 souls, German is mostly spoken. Here, where winegrowing has always had great economic and social significance, is the home of the Peter Zemmer winery. The winemaking team is made up of young, progressive people and trained wine specialists with many years of experience. The different locations, soils and microclimatic conditions allow the cultivation of a wide range of local and international varieties - from Vernatsch and Lagrein, Pinot Bianco and Gewürztraminer to Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Merlot.

    Around 1,800 hours of sunshine per year, a favourable average temperature of 18 degrees during the growing season and a very favourable distribution of rainfall are reflected in a wide battery of bottles of distinctive and expressive quality wines with strong aromas, including two Spumanti. The loose soils of the farm, which is managed close to nature, consist of dolomite and limestone rock with glacial deposits of gravel, sand and loam. Since the ground is well ventilated and therefore easy to warm, the vines can develop ideally. Snowy winters provide high water reserves. In the hottest season of the year, the growing zone is characterised by large day-night temperature differences, which allow the grapes to retain their aroma.

    The Peter Zemmer winery's electricity requirements are completely covered by renewable energy. Environmentally conscious vine care and soil cultivation as well as reduced yields in the vineyard are a matter of course for Helmuth Zemmer, who runs the family winery founded by his father in 1928 together with his wife and sons Peter and Günther. The successes achieved so far confirm the chosen path and are reflected in a number of national and international awards.

    The heart of the Peter Zemmer winery, one of South Tyrol's leading wineries, is the new, exemplarily equipped wooden barrel cellar. In large and small barriques as well as in stainless steel, the most valuable and noble red and white drops mature there. Some of the grapes are supplied by selected winegrowers from the surrounding area who have been associated with the wine house on the South Tyrolean Wine Route for many years. SUPERIORE.DE
