Rarity Südtirol Alto Adige Terlano Pinot Bianco 2009

Such an interesting wine. Subtle, discreet and delicate but at the same time packed with flavour. White flowers and elderflower dominate but there is citrus and stone fruit present. Light woody notes and salty minerality round this off. Very balanced and nuanced wine. — 14 days ago

Foradori

Sgarzon Vigneti delle Dolomiti Teroldego 2014

Popped and poured. 100% Teraldego from a 5 acre parcel and aged in amphora. At this stage the 2014 “Sgarzon” pours a nearly opaque, garnet color. Let’s be clear, there’s definitely some VA, but there is some absolutely gorgeous pomegranates, tart dark brambles, earth, and stewed plums too. A very pretty wine that reminds me why I am so smitten by Elizabetta‘s wines. For my palate, this is showing better than it did back in 2017. Very Italian…but with some Burgundian sensibilities. But even that isn’t fair. These wines are singular. — 10 days ago

I reckon that terroir where Abbazia di Novacella is among the best plots where to grow Sylvaner in the world, definitely in Italy. There are many other producers doing Sylvaner in Valle d'Isarco/Eisecktaler and most of the time it's their best bottling...i reckon it's a better vocated area than Franconia in Germany for it. Cheers!
