2020 Cantina Terlano "Terlaner Cuvée" Alto Adige

SKU #1576399 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The flinty minerality and intense wild-herb aromas set the ripe-citrus aromas of this concentrated, racy Alpine dry white alight! So much mountain freshness and minerality at the long, high-energy finish. A cuvée of pinot bianco, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc that dates back to this producer’s foundation in 1893. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Representing excellent value, this release of about a quarter-million bottles is not at all what you would expect from a production of this scale. A blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, this vintage is the latest in a storied line that has been in production since 1893. The Pinot Bianco is grown at high altitudes, while the other two grapes come from lower elevations. The 2020 Alto Adige Terlaner Cuvée is smooth and is a veritable sounding board of stone fruit aromas, plus honey and some raw ginger or turmeric. You might serve it with a plate of smoked salmon.

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A sleek white driven by racy acidity, with orange blossom and Mandarin orange peel notes imparting a fragrant, zesty overtone to the flavors of Jonagold apple, slivered almond and a hint of dried mint. Minerally smoke- and stone-accented finish. Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

This blend of three different grape varieties, grown in the classic district of Terlano (South-Tyrol), is as versatile a wine as you'll find from anywhere, and a seriously good value besides. A blend used quite successfully for over 100 years, this cuvee of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats offers fruity aromatics with light yeasty notes and a taste that is always harmonious though quite strong on the palate and very persistent.
