Colterenzio from Alto Adige!

a

When I think of cool Italians I think of John Travolta, Madonna and Leonardo DiCaprio... NOT Pinot Nero, St. Magdalener, and Pinot Bianco. Those are the grapes that make these wines so cool... and geeky.

So what constitutes a cool and geeky wine you ask? One that's not trendy, hipster or on a full page ad in The Wine Spectator. Cool wine is obscure, cerebral, and mind-boggling! This weekend here on North Union Street we've got a trio of wines from the Alto Adige wrapped up in a 6pack sampler case... and 2 others (Moscato Giallo - dry! - and Koro "Bordeaux" Blend) from the same winery - Cantina Colterenzio - for a total of 5 cool & geeky Italians to please your palate!

The winery does not look back on a long history, they are not a family company. Colterenzio is one of the newest wineries in South Tyrol, and over 300 families work behind the winery scenes - some of them as a secondary occupation. They work year-round, and each autumn they deliver us their precious, hand-harvested grapes.

95% Vernatsch and 5% Lagrein

Brilliant translucent ruby red in colour with a fruity bouquet reminiscent of black cherry and violets expanding to a medium-bodied palate of red summer fruits; a succulent wine with mild acidity, medium length, and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Ideal with charcuterie, especially South Tyrolean "speck", pasta dishes with meat sauces, pizza and mild cheeses.

100% Pinot Noir

Brilliant medium ruby red with a fresh, fruity nose, reminiscent of red currants and black cherry; medium-bodied, round with soft tannins and ripe berry flavours well integrated with the acidity. A stylish and elegant wine. Perfect partner to light starters, roast partridge, rack of hare, Peking duck, and meaty fish.

b e

100% Pinot Blanc
Straw yellow in colour with green nuances, a fresh bouquet reminiscent of apple and pear; crisp and zesty on the palate, round, with masses of finesse. A youthful wine, delicious with hors d'oeuvres, lightly-flavoured starters, pasta, risotto, white meats, vegetarian dishes and fish. Perfect as an aperitif.
