Wine AdvocateClosed with a glass cork, the 2016 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Nussbaumer is floral and fragrant with abundant layers of white rose, honeysuckle and orange blossom. If you love this variety, you are going to appreciate the clean lines and snappy style evidenced by this wine from the far north of Italy. Spicy notes of nutmeg and clove appear as distant accents on the close. The 15% alcohol fuels a long finish. The Tramin subzone of the appellation is home to some of the best Gewürztraminer in Alto Adige. Some 70,000 bottles were made.
