Gottardi, Pinot Nero “Mazzon“ 2014

Gottardi

2014
Alto Adige

Known as “Pinot Nero’s heaven“, the Mazzon vineyard is where the grapes have grown. Crafted by Alexander Gottardi in this ruby red wine with spicy notes and floral hints. This classic Pinot Noir is exhilarating, bursting with wild strawberry and rhubarb fruit rounded off with a savoury mint-and-liquorice finish. This is amazing pinot with gratification aplenty, lively, balanced and extremely tasty. Rich and elegant it pairs nicely with pork dishes.

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.
