2019 Weissburgunder 'Festival', Cantina Merano, Alto Adige, Italy
The Germanic influence on this part of Italy is clear to see in the use of German grape names. Weissburgunder is more commonly known as Pinot Blanc or Pinot Bianco
Situated in the alpine landscape of the Southern Tryol, the vineyards of Merano are cultivated just like small gardens.
Surrounded by cypresses and cedar trees the extremely steep, mainly terraced vineyards receive much love and care. The wines have a lovely depth of minerality and concentrated fruit. Winemaker Stefan Kapfinger focuses on keeping crisp aromatics throughout his whites and a well balanced harmony of fruit and tannin in his full bodied reds.
Brilliant greenish yellow, decent, fresh scent of green apples, rich and well balanced on the palate, vivid acidity. A sophisticated wine with Alpine freshness guaranteed.
