When drinking Peter Dipoli’s wines, it is not unusual to forget the grape variety in question and instead revel in the awe-inspiring site that gave birth to these creations.Hundreds of meters above the valley floor in the Dolomites of Alto Adige, these vineyards offer all the right conditions for the making of a grande vino: elevation, slope, exposure, and soils of clay and limestone that yield low quantities of characterful, concentrated fruit. In Peter’s cellar, vinification is a means of bringing out the most of the terroir in order to capture the beauty of the site in bottle. Natural yeasts transform grapes to wine, then both white and red see a healthy dose of wood for a lengthy aging period. The intense, structured nectar can easily digest it. For Voglar, large acacia botti provide a roundness and completeness to the bracing, mineral alpine fruit.. Dipoli’s creations represent unique interpretations of both grape and terroir, and offer a compelling taste of the Dolomites young and old. –Anthony Lynch
