Cantina Bolzano, South Tyrol's largest cooperative winery, represents a union of over 224 growers from 350 hectares of Bolzano's finest vineyards. Formed in 2001 by merging the historical Gries Winery (1908) and St. Magdalena Winery (1930), Cantina Bolzano combines traditional expertise with a youthful, visionary approach. Grapes are sourced across a variety of distinctive vineyard locations, ranging from 240 to 800 meters above sea level, utilizing both alluvial valley floors and sandy hillside soils. Their rigorous selection process and green cultivation methods yield high-quality grapes, resulting in a wide range of wines across their Classic, Election, and Riserva lines.

Pinot Nero may originate from Burgundy but it's been cultivated in Alto Adige for more than a century. The grapes for this rendition grow on selected sites on the slopes of the Renon in the Bolzano area. Offering a delightful bouquet of fruity aromas featuring red cherry, raspberry, and plum, complemented by floral hints of violets and delicate spices. Full-flavoured on the palate with fine-grained tannins that enhance the vibrant fruit, all balanced by a refreshing streak of acidity.

Pair this versatile wine with proteins such as beef, lamb or even wildfowl such as duck or pheasant. This wine will also compliment mature cheeses nicely.

90 Points - John Szabo, MS

Here's an unusually fruity pinot nero from the Alto Adige, unusual in the blueberry and black currant type of fruit on offer like a syrup or a coulis, pleasant but atypical to a degree. The palate is soft and smooth, with light, silky tannins and balanced-ripe acids - clearly a ripe vintage for the wine (13.5% alcohol declared). Very good length. Chill lightly before serving over the next 1-3 years - I'd capture it on the fruitier, younger side myself.
