“A few years ago, I wrote that this wine was perfection; I’ll say the same for the 2016 vintage. Bright, amber gold; heavenly aromas of dried apricot, orange blossom and honey with a hint of banana. Excellent concentration. Very good acidity and an extremely lengthy finish that finishes dry. Simply amazing. Peak in 7-10 years.”

Gewürztraminer Alto Adige DOC - 2019
“Delicate, aromatic style, with rosewater and honey scents and a hint of oiliness in its texture. The acidity balances it all, while a slightly pithy bitterness to the finish refreshes the palate.”

Epokale - 2012
“A luscious nose of dried mangoes, pineapple, dried peaches, lemon meringue, and some fresh grapefruit and limes to boot. Full-bodied with tons of fruit on the oily, dense palate, but only off-dry and with cutting, agile acidity. Phenolic and powerful.”
“This is very fresh and vibrant for a gewurtz, showing yellow apples, lemon meringue, honeysuckle and peach pit. Full-bodied and oily on the palate, but this far from being a dense example of this variety, opting instead for focused, layered fruit and some refreshing acidity.”
“Beautifully fragrant and redolent of honeysuckle and tropical fruit. The honey-like intensity is incredible. This medium-weight white shows a distant trace of residual sugar. It would make a nice pairing with rice pudding and raisins.”
Tramin - Wine Advocate
Terminum Vendemmia Tardiva DOC
“Shows a golden-amber color with pretty copper highlights. This profoundly fragrant dessert wine would make a great pairing partner next to aged cheese or live pâté. The bouquet is intriguing and complex with aromas of candied fruit and honey followed by dried sage leaf and spring flowers. This vintage also shows enhanced freshness that adds to the elegantly direct and sharp delivery of this wine. The grapes are air-dried, and some have been concentrated naturally by botrytis cinerea.” (Special Order)
“Signature aromas of lychee, yellow rose and lanolin. Rich mid-palate and a long, long finish with good acidity and great fruit persistence. Great varietal character, this is always one of the finest whites wines of Italy every year.”
