Pale ruby. Light body, medium alcohol 13%, soft light tannins. Similar to a Pinot Noir or a Poulsard. The texture is very supple and silky, very glyceric. I was expecting higher acidity but I actually would put it in the medium to medium+ range. #schiava #altoadigewine #altoadige #italy — a year ago
Homemade sushi with a 2018 rare white blend from Cantina Terlano-Kellerei 🥂🍣🇮🇹
A medium golden color fills the glass as I pour this wine from Alto Adige, Italy. The tropical fruit aromas of pears and peaches on the nose are blended with honey, citrus, and mineral notes. Light to medium body with a long finish.
It is a refreshing wine with well balanced acidity. We paired it with our homemade tuna and salmon rolls. A delicious pairing for a Saturday night!

Simple. Tart red fruit (raspberry, red cherry and red currant ) very little secondary or tertiary aromas or flavors. Reminded me more of a Garnacha de Gredos due to the high acidity and medium intensity aromas and flavors. Still drank the whole bottle. Warm. 13.5 that feels like 14.5. #pinotnero #pinotnoir #altoadige — a year ago
After reading Matt Kramer’s excellent book “Matt Kramer on Wine” - I was intrigued by his description of #lagrein wine from #altoadige in 🇮🇹. I found this sole example at Total and having now enjoyed it over a week, I have to say you must try this grape and region if you like interesting and complex red wines. It really does well just south of room temperature with a mixture of bramble berry, hot stone, touch of sandalwood and very faint clove aromas. There’s a rich mouthfeel and dense mouth-coating tannins that are nevertheless very soft, plus a backdrop of minerality and acidity that just calls out to pair this most excellent wine with savory dishes. I must go forth and sing the praises of Lagrein. That this wine is not more well known is one of the great tragedies of modern wine marketing. — 2 years ago
I’m surprised by the low ratings here for previous vintages. The producer certainly should be lauded for a worthwhile effort on this 2019 #pinotnoir from the #altoadige region. Wild cherry, compote, touch of baking spice and mushroom + soft forest floor aromas. Delicious tartness up front in the mouth, velvety tannins finish on a medium light body. Really nice quaffable Old World Pinot Noir - hopefully they can maintain this nice QPR in future vintages. $9 at Total Wine with volume discounts. — 2 years ago
