Cantina Terlano 2008

During my visit to the Alto Adige in the summer of 2009 I had the opportunity to try these wines at the Cantina. Today they are available on the west coast of the United States.

Alto AdigeCantina Terlano, Alto Adige, Pinot Bianco 2008 The nose is very pretty, with floral notes. In the mouth there is the freshness of citrus in a light-bodied format. After fermentation this wine spends six months aging on the lees in stainless. Estate Bottled in Terlano 13% purchased for $17.99 at Traverso’s

Cantina Terlano, Alto Adige, Terlaner, Classico 2008 The nose of this wine is vibrantly fruity and in the mouth there is seemingly more acidity than found in the Pinot Bianco – very nice.

Estate Bottled in Terlano 13% purchased for $18.00 at Traverso’s
