"Hats off to the team at Cantina Terlano for this stunning set of new releases."- Monica Larner (Wine Advocate
Located in the Dolomite Mountains in the foothills of the Alps, Terlano's location and terroir are key to the development of their stunning, world-renowned wines. Since 1893, Cantina Terlano has grown into one of the leading wine growers' cooperatives in the Alto Adige region of northeastern Italy. With a current membership of 143 growers farming a total area of 165 hectares, Terlano ensures the highest standards of quality by compensating growers for the quality of their grapes not the quantity. Their wines are famous for their impressive depth and complexity.
"The 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Monticol is a fine and delicate expression with a luminous, gem-like garnet appearance. Nuanced aromas of wild berry, tart cherry, candied orange peel, cola and blue flower create focus and intensity. These are gorgeous results, and the dry 2017 growing season has evidently helped to concentrate the wine's perfumes and flavors. This is a standout expression of Italian Pinot Noir (with 35,000 bottles released)." 94+ points - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, Sep 2020)
