2013 Alto Adige Sauvignon “Voglar”

Peter Dipoli

2013 Alto Adige Sauvignon “Voglar” Peter Dipoli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Peter Dipoli’s wines are more an expression of a specific terroir than they are reflections of a grape variety. This pure Sauvignon Blanc, for example, is a striking translation of the breathtaking place where it is grown: the steep mountainsides of Alto Adige, nestled high in Italy’s Dolomites. Alto Adige has a truly special climate; few other places can boast Mediterranean plants like olive trees and lemons growing before a backdrop of Alpine lakes and snow-capped peaks. Peter Dipoli found this high-altitude site, with its curious amalgam of climates, to be perfect for crafting a great terroir-driven wine. The Sauvignon ripens fully here while retaining a pinpoint acidity and slicing minerality from the limestone soils, and the unusual wood treatment— fermentation and aging in large acacia casks—brings out aromatics unique to this mountain Sauvignon. A delicious companion to cuisine from northern Italy and beyond, the Voglar also has surprising aging potential.

About Alto Adige

In the heart of the Dolomites, Alto Adige is Italy’s northernmost wine region. Having changed hands multiples times in its history between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire (it shares a border with Austria), it boasts strong Germanic influence on its culture, language, cuisine, as well as its wines.

The mountainous geography is the principal determinant of local winemaking styles, with the high-altitude vineyards and cool Alpine climate favoring primarily crisp, racy, aromatic whites from varieties like Kerner, Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau, and Grüner Veltliner. A Mediterranean influence on climate is channeled north up the valley until Bolzano, permitting the cultivation of certain reds as well, among which Schiava, Lagrein, Pinot Nero, and Merlot fare best.

Small growers who once sold fruit to the area’s multiple co-ops are now increasingly bottling their own wines. The arrival of many quality-oriented artisans on the scene caught our eye years ago, and we now count three estates from Südtirol, as it is also known, in our portfolio. These high-acid mountain wines make for a beautifully invigorating aperitivo with thinly sliced speck, a local specialty.
