Tasting Notes

Cool climate Pinot Noir, made by a husband & wife organic farmstead located in Velturno/Fedlthurns, a tiny alpine village nestled in the northerly reaches of Alto-Adige. The vineyards are situated on the steep south-facing mountain slopes with poor rocky soil that brings out great complexity in the wine.

Staff Pick Notes

An expressive Pinot Noir from the Eisack valley in South Tyrol. The vineyards in the basin are in a warm micro-climate surrounded on all sides by the white peaks of the Dolomites. The diurnal shift in temperature makes for wines with razor-sharp acidity and depth. Garlider is very well known for their whites. This is the only red that they produce which makes it a real treat. It's a stellar example of Pinot Noir's ability to transmit terroir, in this case alpine. The nose is fresh with a burst of mountain summer berries and herbs. On the palate are cherry preserves, anise, and bitter roots. A wine like this is made for mushroom risotto or herb roasted pork loin. Stunning in it's focus and clarity.

Trentino-Alto Adige

Crossing the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, Trentino-Alto-Adige is in fact comprised of two autonomous regions (Trentino and Alto-Adige). The swath of land was returned to Italy after World War I, and the two regions have been lumped together in the winemaking world ever since. Alto-Adige, the northernmost half of the region, retains great pride in its Germanic heritage,...

Alto Adige

Comprising the northern half of the oft-conjoined Trentino/Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy, Alto-Adige is in fact its own entity with its own distinct style of winemaking. Situated on the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, the two autonomous regions were returned to Italy after World War I (hence why they are often lumped together). Alto-Adige retains great pride in its Germanic...
