The Metodo Classico Trento doc “823” conquers Switzerland

abstract and translation by Egle Capilupi – The first important recognition for the Albino Armani merum-2012-120x120 Metodo Classico comes from Switzerland.
The prestigious Swiss review “Merum”, as a matter of fact, assigned the “ Trento doc 823 Brut”, two hearts, awarding the great efforts we have been making in mountain viticulture.
The Albino Armani “Trento doc 823”, indeed, is produced at our winery “Maso Michei”in Trentino, with 100% Pinot Nero grapes cultivated at a high altitude between 823 and 900 m a.s.l. at the feet of the Piccole Dolomiti in Trentino.

Just a brief note: “Merum”, this is the name of the prestigious Swiss review, was the latin word used by Romans to indicate the “sincere” wine distinguishing it from the ones mixed with other substances like water. In this case, in fact ,they preferred the word “vinum”.
In some regions in the south of Italy like Salento in Puglia, “lu mieru”means “vino” still today.

About Us

Albino Armani winery is a working tradition that goes back in time. The first evidence of vineyard ownership was in 1607. Today, Albino Armani vineyards are located in three different Italian regions (Veneto, Trentino and Friuli) and they cover about 230 acres of land. In 1962, the municipality of Dolcè (Veneto) became the winery’s home base; it is located in the southern part of the Adige Valley, a glacial valley characterized by a strong identity. We have a strong bond with the territory where our grapevines grow. To preserve them, each day is a challenge for us and the risk of losing our produce is the guiding spirit that gives us the strength to keep doing our job. Our wines are the exact representation of where the grapes come from and in the same time, they describe their own territory of origin. For example, our white wines have fresh bouquet notes of white flowers, result of temperature fluctuations and constant ventilation typical of the Trentino land; and our red wines, on the other hand are original in character, fresh yet complex, result of the high altitude of the Valpolicella hills.
