Pinot Noir
blauburgunder
The Burgundian king among red wines has been planted in Alto Adige since the middle of the nineteenth century. When grown in vineyards of medium elevation that are not too dry, this variety reveals it full potential, yielding well-structured wines that are often amazingly close to their models in Burgundy. Typical Alto Adige Pinot Noirs have a rich and intense scent of dark berries, spice, and violets.
