2015 San Michele Appiano Sanct Valentin Pinot Noir

SKU #1405374 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Nero Riserva Sanct Valentin is a terrific red wine with an edgy, nervous pulse that delivers an interesting yet unpredictable experience. The bouquet is packed tight with forest fruit and tart berry tones of cassis and wild blueberry. Folded within that fruity texture are sour notes of blanched almond, orange peel and tangy notes of medicinal herb or dried mint. This is a highly drinkable and enjoyable wine with near to medium-term accessibility. I would recommend drinking it over the next 5 years. The wine sees three days of skin maceration at very cold temperatures in stainless steel. Following malolactic fermentation, it is transferred into oak barrel. (ML) 90+ Inner quote mark (8/2018)

This is truly an amazing Pinot. As you open this little treasure, pleasant aromas of wild strawberry, fresh leather and cedar fill the air. Medium to full-bodied. Richly textured berries and game mingle with a long, spicy, soft oak finish with fine tannins and a twist of vanilla on the finish. There is also some of that Alto Adige chalk and porphyry that give this lots of minerals and acidity for balance. This is a wine that will definitely stand up to something very rich on the plate; duck, or I will probably open mine and have with a leg of lamb.
