“It’s hard to go wrong with any of these wines from Tramin, one of the best and most consistent wineries in Italy” -, by Galloni on” The Wine Advocate”, March 2012.

TRAMIN Gewürztraminer 2010 – 92 points
“The 2010 Gewürztraminer is flat-out great. Light floral honey notes meld into white flowers, passion fruit and lime in this expressive, beautifully balanced wine. I love the textural richness and sheer depth in this classy, understated wine. The 2010 Gewürztraminer is a striking wine for the money.”
TRAMIN Stoan 2010 – 91 points
“The 2010 Stoan is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 22% Sauvignon, 11% Pinot Bianco and 7% Gewürztraminer. The aromatic varieties play a leading role, while the Chardonnay seems less dominant than in some previous vintages. Although it is delicious, in this vintage Stoan isn't materially more complex than the estate's more modest wines. Today the 2010 comes across as classy and understated. White peaches, flowers and spices are layered into the attractive finish.”
TRAMIN Lagrein 2010 – 90 points
“The 2010 Lagrein is a fresh, vinous wine best suited to near-term drinking. It shows lovely depth and definition in its sweet red berries, pomegranate, licorice and flowers. This is a bright, vibrant style that is undeniably appealing.”
TRAMIN Pinot Bianco 2010 – 89 points
“The 2010 Pinot Bianco is flat-out delicious. It bursts from the glass with gorgeous mid-palate presence and fleshiness. Layers of expressive varieral fruit flow effortlessly to the long, voluptuous finish. This is a fabulous wine for the money.”
TRAMIN Chardonnay 2010 – 88 points
“The 2010 Chardonnay is another terrific wine in its category. Here the fruit is quite rich and bold next to some of the other entry-level wines in the lineup, but the essential Alto Adige character is always present. A rich, creamy finish rounds things out in style.”
TRAMIN Pinot Grigio 2010 – 87 points
“The 2010 Pinot Grigio is a very pretty entry-level white graced with excellent definition and varietal character. It shows lovely polish while capturing plenty of the brightness that is the hallmark of Pinot Grigio from Alto Adige.”
TRAMIN Sauvignon 2010 – 87 points
“The 2010 Sauvignon is long on varietal character and pure definition.... [I]t possesses fine balance, no hard edges and lovely overall balance.”
