de Tarczal, Gewürtztraminer I.G.T.
(gay-VOOR-strah-mee-nayr)

 

Tasting Notes: de Tarczal is one of the smallest and most prestigious winemaking families in Trentino. Theirs is a magical estate at the base of the Alps, with milky alpine rivers and Edelweiss gracing the countryside. Classically rose-scented and touched with bouquet of lychee, their Gewurtztraminer is very Alsatian in style, naturally powerful and expressive. Made from old vines on dramatic terraces, the wine is a stunning example of the virtues of this pink-skinned varietal in the capable hands of a loving expert.
