About This Wine

Just as there are “horses for courses,” there are winegrapes for microclimates.

It’s just a fact of nature that winegrape varieties are physiologically suited to areas with specific climatic qualities — be it soil type, average air temperature, number of sunny days per year, the water level in the ground and on and on. That’s why, back in 1988, the makers of Intaglio wines launched their Trentino Zoning Project.

Over the next 20-plus years, the farmers and winemakers have carefully logged the results of each growing season for each variety planted in Trentino, identifying the most welcoming sites for specific grapes. As vintner Francesco Polastri puts it, “Finding the right ‘zone’ for a wine is the logical first step for cultivating grapes suitable for making great wines.”

Three grape types — Muller Thurgau, Chardonnay and Riesling — are used to craft the Intaglio “Bianco.” All three contribute significantly to the blend, thanks in no small part to the climates in which they were grown.
