Critic Reviews

“A subtle, yet fruity and intense white with sliced-pear, green-apple and mineral aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with dried mangoes and hints of tropical fruit. Drink now.”

“Fresh, rich and deep with silky texture, crisp acidity and snappy flavors of green apple and bright citrus; a charming rendition of this oft maligned variety.”

“The 2019 Pinot Grigio lifts from the glass with a perfumed display of white flowers, dried apricot, and crushed stone. It excites the senses with a stimulating mix of zesty acids, minerals and ripe orchard fruits, as honied inner florals evolve. There’s energy to burn here while also coming across as soothing with a gentle inner sweetness. Well done.”

“Fresh, spicy pears, lots of spice. Open and inviting. Creamy texture and plenty of pear-scented fruit on the palate. Straightforward and refreshing, with a well-handled combination of freshness and ripeness. The spice of Pinot Grigio but a light, crisp take on it. Deep-fruited and long, generous in the mouth yet balanced.

About The Winery
Located in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Cantina Kurtatsch has produced wines guided by the unique terroir of Alto Adige since 1900. The 190-hectare property, named after the nearby town of Kurtatsch, is cooperatively owned by 190 families who share the goal of producing characterful wines of the highest quality using sustainable practices. As one of the oldest wine cooperatives in the region, invaluable knowledge of the vineyards and of every single grapevine is passed from one generation to the next. The smallholdings (1 hectare per member) make possible gentle cultivation by hand during the growing season and harvest. Cantina Kurtatsch crafts some of the best crus of the Alto Adige, taking advantage of wide-ranging soil diversity, large diurnal shifts, and the alpine-continental climate with Mediterranean influences.

Today, Kurtatsch is led by a young, dynamic, and down-to-earth team with President Andreas Kofler at the helm of the business and award-winning winemaker Othmar Dona leading the winemaking. This strong, family-oriented team continues to cultivate a special relationship with the vineyards, and to capture the true spirit of the region through a range of powerful Mediterranean wines with unmistakable alpine freshness.
