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. –Anthony Lynch
