The Trentino landscape has a geographical conformation and climate that create ideal conditions for growing vines. The interaction between the Alps, the Adige river valley and Lake Garda guarantees a cool, breezy climate with wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, optimal for the ripening of different grape varieties. The soils are diverse, resulting from glacial moraine deposits and alluvial sediments due to flooding and changes in the course of the Adige and Noce rivers. These draining soils, with pebbles, gravel and sand of various compositions, extend into valleys, alluvial plains, hilly areas and pre-Alps, offering a variety of altitudes between 200 and 900 metres for vineyards.
The favourable soil and climatic conditions have allowed the cultivation of vines since pre-Roman times. The influence of the Roman legions spread viticulture and the local wines, known as 'Rhaetic', gained prestige for their quality. In the Middle Ages, Trentino acted as a border between northern Europe and the Mediterranean area, with monasteries keeping the winegrowing tradition alive. In the late 19th century, the Edmund Mach Foundation, originally theAgrarian Institute of San Michele all'Adige, revolutionisedwine-making by sharing knowledge and experience, raising the quality of Alto Adige and Trentino wines.
Trentino is home to a rich variety of indigenous grape varieties that have shaped the history of the area. Teroldego is the most famous and widespread, cultivated in the Rotaliana plain north of Trento. The villages of Mezzacorona and Mezzolombardo are renowned for Teroldego, producing intense red wines with notes of dark fruit and plum. Marzemino, on the other hand, flourishes in Vallagarina and Isera, giving wines with a delicate profile with fruity and floral bouquets. Other native grape varieties such asEnantio and Casetta are rarities. In the 19th century, international varieties such as Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon were successfully introduced.
Thanks to their elegance and balance, Trentino red wines are perfect for accompanying meals. Teroldego goes well with pasta with meat sauce, game, poultry and roasts. Marzemino, thanks to its fruitiness and smoothness, goes well with tasty first courses and white meats.
