    Winemaker Notes

    This wine has a ruby-red core with aromas of red berry fruit that are echoed on the palate, along with hints of licorice, fennel and a touch of cinnamon. Medium-bodied and low in tannin, this wine pairs well with grilled tuna, swordfish and salmon. Also great with poultry, pork and many other foods.

    La Vis, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
    Image of winery
    Officially established in 1948, Cantina La Vis is located in a village that shares its name, in the heart of the Avisiane hills. The 1980 Progetto Zonazione (Zoning Project), whose motto was "the right vine at the right place," was the foundation for the quality of La Vis wines. Studies and research under the "Progetto Qualità, linked to the zoning project, have led La Vis agronomists and oenologists to identify outstanding vineyards, their wines becoming part of the Autoctoni, Ritratti and Bio lines, the company’s high-end labels.

    The Autoctoni line satisfies the need to bring high-quality Trentino wines to the market, with grapes that really exalt the genius loci. This is the case with the gentle Sette Fontane Nosiola, the subtle Piaggi Schiava, the strong Rover Terodego, the surprising L’Altro Manzoni Maso Franch Incrocio Manzoni, the elegant Lagrein Greggi, and the high mineral Cadrobbi Müller Thurgau.

    The richness and variety of the land has also meant international varieties have found a preferred location in the Trentino area over the past century. The Ritratti line is grown in locations of the highest prestige, proposing the fine Del Diaol Chardonnay, the fragrant Maso Clinga Gewürztraminer, the aromatic Maso Tratta Sauvignon, the intense Cabernet Sauvignon, the enveloping Pinot Noir or the wonderfully refreshing Pinot Grigio.

    Ever true to their respect of the land, some members have chosen to embrace the Bio (organic) cause, thus leading to the creation of the award-winning Ai Padri Gewürztraminer, the complex Manci Chardonnay, the elegant Arcadia Pinot Grigio and the fragrant and fruity Nailam Marzemino wines, all grown on the Trento hills.

    The range is completed by the Simboli line, created to satisfy the requests of wine lovers who like their food at restaurants to be accompanied by excellent wines, everyday, and the Storie di Vite line. Although maintaining the pleasant and authentic character of Trentino wines, these two lines are specifically targeted at the modern market, reflecting an offer that is becoming increasingly popular with families.

    Last but not least, the two new LA VIS sparkling wines, the 100% white Chardonnay and the Rosé (Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes), are also highly appreciated.

    Trentino-Alto Adige

    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.

    Pinot Noir

    One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

    In the Glass

    Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

    Perfect Pairings

    Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

    Sommelier Secret

    For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Villages or Cru level wines.
