de Tarczal, Trentino Müller Thurgau D.O.C.
(tren-TEE-noh MOO-layr TOOR-gau)

 

Tasting Notes: Made from 50 year-old vines, the flinty complexity of this Muller Thurgau is stunning. Trentino is a bit warmer for a Northern Italian mountain climate, and days are sunny; but when night sets, the cool breezes sink down from the Alps, locking in crispness and acidity. Ruggero de Tarczal, is royalty in Trentino circles, and is one of the last stand-outs against co-op wines that now dominate 95% of the landscape. To taste his wines is to begin to understand what is possible in Trentino.
