Altùris Traminer Aromatico Trevenezie 2020
68 in stock
From Friuli Venezia Giulia, a famous wine region of Italy on the border with Austria and Slovenia, that is known for the production of the highest quality white wines.
This very fine Friulli Traminer Aromatico might remind you of the flamboyant floral, aromatic nose of a Gewürztraminer from the Alsace region of France, but on the palate, but this wine is a surprise for most who’ve never tried it, as in spite of the suggestion of sweetness on the nose, it is crisp, fresh and dry on the palate, with very distinct notes of lychee fruit. Straw yellow in colour with green reflections, the wine is refined, broad and complex from the ageing ‘sur lie’ with wonderful body and viscosity in the glass, a mouth-cleansing acidity and a long aromatic finish with a hint of spice.
Vinified in glass lined cement tanks ‘Sur Lie’ after harvesting by hand.
The perfect pairing for this wine is definitely Thai food, but all types of Asian food work well.
Serving temperature: 10-12 degrees

This very special winery is located in the beautiful hills of Friuli, known as Italian White Wine Heaven: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which in their mother tongue are called “Altùris”: a geometry of reliefs engraved by vineyards. Although the region is relatively small compared to the rest of Italy, it ranks among the best for producers of white wines.
It is in this revered place that Marco and Massimo Zorzettig, heirs of a historical family, which has been a symbol of solid entrepreneurship in the wine world for three generations, founded Altùris.
The winery is devoted to the creation of exquisite wines, capable
of carrying all the scents and aromas that the grapes of this unique terroir offer.
At the far North East of Italy, close to Venice and at short walk from Cividale del Friuli at the border with Austria and Slovenia, Altùris vines benefit of an unique microclimate. The Julian Alps protect them from the cold winds of North, while the breezes from Adriatic Sea smooth and mitigate the climate, offering the vineyards exceptional conditions to produce grand quality wines.
The production at Altùris winery is set for 70 percent whites and 30 percent reds. They also produce incredibly great reds.
