Altemasi

Altemasi, one of the finest TRENTODOC wines, is a Classic Method sparkling wine made from grapes grown in the Trentino region of Italy. The tiny bubbles produced using Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes seem to give this wine its ability to draw out time itself.

Thanks to not less than 36 months in contact with the lees, this is one of the finest and most elegant sparkling wines in our range. From the award-winning Altemasi GRAAL Reserve to the fruity, delicious Rosé.

The Local Area

Vines are an integral part of the landscape in Trentino, where lush vineyards stretch from the plain up into the hills, blending in harmonically with the mountain environment. Vine cultivation extends over an area ranging in altitude from 70 to 800 metres a.s.l.

Here soil composition is extremely varied, like the climate: considerable differences between day and night temperatures in the period leading up to the grape harvest impart a fresh, highly complex, elegant bouquet. These unique characteristics make Trentino an area highly suited to the production of premium quality sparkling wines.

TRENTODOC

TRENTODOC means quality and respect for tradition. An exclusive name synonymous with passion, experience, strict regulations and constant controls.
The “Trento D.O.C.” appellation was the first of its kind in Italy and the second in the world, after Champagne.

The Trentodoc trademark highlights one of the main characteristics of Metodo Classico: remuage, represented by the two “O’s” in the trademark featuring a swirling design that suggests the rotation of the bottles. But just one taste of Altemasi Trentodoc and everything becomes clear. Visit www.trentodoc.com
