"Inviting aromas of mature white stone fruit, baking spice and a whiff of baked bread waft out of the glass. Tangy and elegant, the savory, medium-bodied palate doles out ripe Bartlett pear, creamy yellow apple and a ginger note alongside tangy acidity."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Colterenzio is one of the newest wineries in South Tyrol, composed of over 300 families working together. This is a new-generation cooperative that smashes preconceptions, proving that a humble “coop” can consistently deliver some of the most transparent, expressive wines in the top flight region of Alto Adige. Member-winegrowers farm their grapes on a total of 300 hectares; the vineyards are located in one of the best wine growing sub-districts of Alto Adige, on altitudes ranging from 230 to 650 meters with 12 different varieties cultivated. Ecology is a driving principle here – Farming is sustainable and the winery was built with permaculture in mind. Tasting Notes: Straw yellow in color with green nuances, a fresh bouquet reminiscent of apple and pear; crisp and zesty on the palate, round, with masses of finesse.
