Top 10 Trentodoc
The area of Trento is historically regarded as one of the most suited for sparkling wine. Here are our 10 favorites from 10 different wineries.
The name is taking hold also because it is catchy, sounds good and is easy to remember. It refers to a series of Traditional Method sparkling wines from splendid, hillside vineyards and that overall offer a significantly high level of quality.
The grapes used are for the most part Chardonnay with a lesser amount of Pinot Noir. There are some large cooperative wineries along with prestigious independent wineries and small producers and all help compose an area that is evermore central and rich in diversity for the production of Italian sparkling wine.
We have singled out some that particularly impressed us, while at the same time underscoring how the growth of this wine is constant and consistent to the extent that the name Trentodoc is truly a guarantee of high quality for almost all the wines.
Most of the reviews were carried out by Chiara Giovoni, our own “Madame Perlage”.
