Wine Review: Intaglio Bianco 2008, Trentino D.O.C.

The Blend:  47% Muller Thurgau, 45% Chardonnay, 8% Riesling.

Where from?  Trentino, Northern Italy

Production: 1,500 cases

Alcohol: 12.5%

Price: $13 at Oakville Grocery, Scottsdale Arizona

On the nose: Very aromatic, tropical fruit, melon

On the palate:  Lemon, Green Apple, creamy supple mouth feel, with light, mineral finish.

Verdict: 90 points.  Amazing wine, especially for the price.  The aromatics and the mouth feel are most impressive.

  1. I feel the quality of whites wine from Trentino Alto Adige keeps improving every new vintage. Have you ever tried anything from Cantina Terlan, Cantina Andrian or Cantina La Vis?

    1. take a look at the video on “A conversation with Dave Johnson” he is the consulting winemaker for the Intaglio Bianco. A lot of really great info from Dave. I have very limited experience with Italian wines in general

  2. A German/Swiss varietal making headway in Italy, eh? I’m surprised the difference in climate is so good to it, although I suppose that region would be relatively close climate-wise to southern Germany. I can say for certain I’ve never had that varietal from Italy before.
