    Winemaker Notes

    Color: Ruby red with a violet smokiness in its youth which ultimately evolves to a brick red with proper aging.

    Bouquet: Clean and pleasant, discreetly fruited with the slightest accents of herbs.

    Taste: Dry, pleasantly balanced, well structured with an elegant body.

    Produced in Northern Italy’s Trentino region with grapes sourced from select hillside vineyard sites, Alta Luna offers expressive wines from the region’s native varietals.

    Established in 2011, Alta Luna offers a quartet of wines that appeal to a wide range of consumer preferences. With a name that means “High Moon” in Italian, Alta Luna’s sleek and modern packaging features a water-colored depiction of the Dolomite Mountains.

    The Alta Luna vineyards are situated along the foothills of the Adige Valley, bordering Trentino and Alto Adige, in the town of Roverè delle Luna. These high-altitude vineyards benefit from an ideal aspect and unique, well-draining glacial-alluvial soils. The climate in this region makes all the difference. Northern Trentino enjoys warm temperatures in the summer, contributing to the development of ripe concentrated fruit and elegant aromatics, while the cool evenings maintain the fruit’s acidity: the result are wines that are refreshing and well-balanced.

    Producing well-crafted, expressive wines that over-deliver on price is not a new concept for winemaker, Anselmo Martini. Anselmo has been producing quality wines in Northern Italy for decades. His depth of experience shines through in Alta Luna, which uses grapes grown in some of the best, high altitude vineyards.

    A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino.

    Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of non-native, international grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Merlot produced. But Trentino's native and most unique red variety, Teroldego, while still rare, is gaining popularity. It produces a deeply colored red wine rich in wild blackberry, herb, coffee and cocoa.

    The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) focuses on small-scale viticulture, with great value placed on local varieties—though international varieties have been widely planted since the 1800s. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are at extreme altitude but on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure.

    Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed, Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero.

    The primary white grapes are Pinot grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon blanc, Müller Thurgau. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot grigio in Italy is made here.
