Girlan, Pinot Nero "Patricia" 2018

Girlan

2018
Alto Adige
The grapes of “Patricia” come partly from the hillside vineyards of the Oltradige at an altitudes ranging from 450 to 500 m above sea level in well aired vineyards, and partly from vineyards located in Mazon and Montagna in the Bassa Atesina. The clay and lime soil is ideal for Pinot Nero, giving it a velvety softness and an elegant structure. This Pinot Noir is smooth with an excellent, markedly fruity structure of ripe small berries aromas and delicate floral hints . Thanks to a high acidity the result is a very balanced wine.

Trentino Alto-Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige is characterized by the alpine peaks which soar for many thousands of feet above the Adige river Valley. The region follows the Adige river along its north-south course down from the Alps towards the plains, winding past various valleys and lakes.

Trentino-Alto Adige produces 8 DOCs and has a wide range of varieties: Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, and international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among the most widely used. The standard red Trentino Rosso is made from the Cabernet grapes, with Merlot also thrown in to make it a near-complete Bordeaux Blend. Its white Trentino Bianco counterpart has Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco as its base, with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller-Thurgau and Manzoni Bianco as permitted auxiliaries.

Grape varieties In addition to the dominant local varieties Schiava and Lagrein, there's more and more interest for Teroldego and Pinot Noir amongst red grapes, while the main white grape vaeriteis are: Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer and some very fine examples of Sauvignon and Pinot Bianco, with other indigenous grapes like Nosiola.
