Discover the terroir of Santa Maddalena, a renowned cru in Alto Adige, celebrated for its exceptional reds, crafted predominantly from the local variety Schiava Grossa and a smaller portion of Lagrein. Santa Maddalena is a beautiful site: south-facing on one of the region's warmer spots, with pergola-trained vines on purple porphyry granite.

Noble Grape is a great admirer of both Schiava varieties (S. Grossa, AKA Vernatsch, and S. Gentile, AKA Edelvernatsch). With this wine, we reach the pinnacle of the former.

Rottensteiner is a biodynamic estate run by Anton and Hannes Rottsteiner, father and son. Their wines are singular and expressive. Vigna Premstallerhof is their pride and joy. The 2022 is light, fresh, and bright, with aromas of red flowers, morello cherries, and subtle spices. Drink cool, if preferred.

Alto Adige

Alto Adige along with Friuli could be considered as the source of Italy’s greatest white wines. The region is bilingual with road signs and town names having both Italian and German versions and was the last region to join unified Italy in 1919, having previously been part of the Austria-Hungary Empire. The climate is influence by the Alps with vineyards planted on the steep hillsides of the Adige Valley. The varieties planted here are a mix of internationals such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc alongside the local specialities, but our preference at Noble Grape is for the latter such as Pinot Bianco, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Schiava, etc.

We are delighted to present the wines from three wineries, Nals Margreid, Tramin, and Terlan each having their own specialities. The first is renowned for their Pinot Biancos and can boast the region's best example from this variety, Sirmian. Tramin is, among other things, a specialist in Gewürztraminer. You may be forgiven for thinking that Alsace is the spiritual home of this variety, but we would canvass that it is in fact, here, in Alto Adige, that a more convincing claim could be made since the variety is named after the town of Tramin.

Terlan is the latest additon to our range, another of the region's famed cantine sociali making truly extraordinary wines.
