Cantina Tramin, founded in 1898, has 310 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines and covers 260 hectares of vineyards situated on the sunny slopes at an altitude of 250-850 metres above sea level. These vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. In 2011, Cantina Tramin gained the "Double Stella". This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso. Vintage
In spite of changeable temperatures in spring, bud break and flowering started around the average time in 2016. Damp conditions in May and June increased the danger of fungus infection, which demanded attention, sensitivity and hard work in the vineyard. Thanks to intermittent sunny, dry days, this was compensated for. From the end of August onwards, the weather was dry with warm days alternated with periodically very cool nights, which slowed the ripening process and the harvest started about a week later than average. The grapes were in perfect health with optimum physiologic ripeness at harvest time. The white wines present themselves as very balanced, powerful, juicy and fresh, with a complex structure. Vineyard
This region owes its Italian name of "Alto-Adige" to the river Adige that flows through on its way to the Adriatic. The sleepy village of Termeno or Tramin is thought to be the birthplace of the Traminer white grape variety, also known as Gewurztraminer. The vineyards are made up of clay soils, known for their cooling properties for the vines. Winemaking
The grapes were softly pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 21°C . No malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then left to rest in stainless steel vats until bottled. Tasting Note
An intense and complex nose, with aromas of tropical fruit, honey, notes of spice and a layer of minerality, all complemented by a hint of smoke. Full bodied, with good structured, balancing acidity and a deliciously long finish. A beautiful almost off-dry wine. Serving Suggestion
A delight with fish hors d'oeuvres served in creamy sauces, full flavoured white meat dishes and spicy Oriental cuisine.
