ABOUT THE WINE: In the Middle Ages, the most famous wines what is now Alto Adige were named after their regions: Traminer, Eppaner, Mataner (Montaner), Kaltaner (Kalterer), Curtätscher (Kurtatscher). They were always blends, although each zone had its own colorful spectrum of grape varieties. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the legendary oenologist Edmund Mach (Founding Director of the Agricultural Institute at San Michele) fostered the introduction of leading French varieties. In the hills of Kurtatsch with a southern exposure, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon find the ideal vegetation conditions and soil relationships similar to those in Bordeaux: chalky gravel with good drainage, and a favorable climate in early autumn for the final ripening phase of the grapes. "Soma" Merlot-Cabernet (the ancient Greek word for "body") is a cuvée that follows the French model Pomerol: a Baroque, lavishly corpulent Merlot sets the tone, and the distinct fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon provides the spices, elegance, and depth. "Soma" Merlot-Cabernet has a lively, playful scent reminiscent of cherries, plums, and blackberries, as well as laurel and crushed peppermint leaves. The approach to the palate is solid and lush, with a rush of fleshy dark wild berries, while nuanced tannins give the round body a stable balance and a good constitution for a lengthy aging in the bottle.
