TRENTODOC: A TRADITION, A TERRITORY

Trentodoc is tradition


Trentodoc is a sparkling wine produced by the Classic Method, or Metodo Classico, and made only with Trentino grapes. After harvesting by hand, its winemaking process begins, one that has been passed down from generations, guided by passion and led by technology. It takes time and daily work for months or years before a Trentodoc is ready. One of the key parts of making a Trentodoc classic method wine is the secondary fermentation of the base wine, which takes place in the bottle.


Trentodoc is territory


Trentodoc is the expression of the land it comes from, Trentino. Trentodoc expresses its climate, high altitudes, and essence. From the highest Alpine peaks to the Mediterranean climes of the foothills where the temperatures are mitigated by the Ora del Garda winds, and the continental climate in the valley, every glass is unique and carries the character of its place of origin.

Climate
The climate of Trentino features an extensive temperature range that is fully reflected in the organoleptic properties of Trentodoc.  

The geoclimatic conditions produce temperature fluctuations typical of the alpine environment, which is particularly important for transferring the quality and variety of aromas to Metodo Classico Trentodoc, and for making it particularly intriguing.

Identity
Trentodoc proudly has its own identity, thanks to important and innovative research that has clearly confirmed the bond between Trentodoc and its territory of origin, highlighting its “mountain” nature.

The research, lasting three years, was carried out as part of the project entitled "New analytical methods for the geographical and varietal traceability of wine products”, in cooperationwith the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, with the Edmund Mach Foundationand with the Ministry of Agricultural and Forestry Policies. 

This research scientifically confirms the bond between the territory and the sparkling wines of Trentino and represents certification, for sparkling wine producers of Trentino, which unquestionably and irrevocably now reinforces the origin and identity of Trentodoc, the only Metodo Classico sparkling wine from the mountains.

Territory
The vine-covered area in Trentino totals about 10,000 hectares (2% in Italy) with a percentage of grapes for the sparkling base wine of 8% and a total annual production of about 7 million bottles. These are high figures for a small territory like ours, which not only has the numbers but also the special characteristics that make it particularly suited to producing high-quality sparkling wine, made exclusively by the “Metodo Classico” method. 

The broad range of climatic conditions in Trentino, from the mild climate of Lake Garda to the biting cold of the Dolomites, contributes, along with other territorial features, to determining the exclusive character of Trentodoc. Trentino is what makes Trentodoc different from all other sparkling wines and our land makes it one of the best Italian Metodo Classico sparkling wines.

Mountains
Our land is made of mountains and when it comes to Trentodoc, they are a great resource. In Trentino, vines can be grown at high or low altitudes, since the mountain microclimate offers beneficial effects. This is reflected in our Metodo Classico sparkling wines, making them true sparkling wines from the mountains. 

The grape varieties of Trentino used to make Trentodoc are grown at up to max. 800 metres above sea level. 

The altitude of the vineyard affects the ripening of the grapes, just as the temperature range directly reflects the vine-growing environment. The altitude, in particular, has a significant influence on the acidity of the grapes in the period between veraison and harvesting.  

Vines grown on higher ground produce healthier grapes, but the entire mountain microclimate of Trentino brings positive effects, even to vines grown at lower altitudes.
