Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2010 Veltliner is one of the richer, more textured wines in this lineup. Here, too, the fruit tends towards the more exotic side of the spectrum, with hints of passion fruit and succulent yellow peaches. This is quite generous on the palate, but I don't quite find the elegance or textural refinement of the best years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Trentino: The tall, steep Dolomites in the far north of Italy with their towering peaks and nearly vertical sides provide a unique cozy shelter to the long valleys situated in their foothills. There, blessed by constant warm breeze and protected from any harm lies Trentino, home to a thousands of years-long winemaking tradition. The forty-degrees warm summers in this province may surprise first-time visitors, given the dramatic terrain of the location, but you could tell that Trentino lies within a sweet spot by their legendary wines alone, without ever having been there in person to see this place in its full glory. This is further confirmed by their expertise and skill in producing a variety of excellent wines, able to enchant a diverse audience of connoisseurs. Trentino's vast pedigree has been traditionally most notable for its honey-perfumed, sparkling, Chardonnay-based wines and the classic style of their production. Besides the overachieving whites, Trentino offers a wonderful selection of red wines, made from indigenous Teroldego and Marzemino grapes, as well as some of the most renowned Bordeaux blends in Italy. Rich granite, earthy hues and unbelievably melty tannins are typical for this region. The options are many to choose from, though there's no need to limit oneself to sampling just one type of wine from this region.
Type of Wine Italy (Other): There are dozens of grape varietals grown in Italy so no wonder they produce such a broad range of most exquisite wines. Some of the most cultivated red varieties are Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Sangiovese, and Barbera, while Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also popular. Among whites, you're likely to find Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, or Vernaccia varietals.
Varietal Gruner Veltliner: Gruner Veltliner - grape takes up around 33% of all vineyards in Austria and is also well-represented in Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic (where it takes up roughly 11% of all vineyards). Wines made from this magnificent varietal have recently bested even some top-class Chardonnays, proving their ability to compete on the world stage and carving their place in history. Aside from straight white wines, the Gruner Veltliner grape is used for various sparkling wines, showcasing an appealing versatility.
