Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Venezie IGT 2006

External Review by CoolVines:

The Italian region of Alto Adige is an interesting patchwork of different Denominazione di Origine Controllata zones around Bolzano and Merano. There are a total of eighteen different grape varieties that are grown in the region among which Schiava (Vernatsch), Pinot Noir and Lagrein are the most important reds. Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay are the more significant white varieties. The Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio is a classic example of this matching. Its grapes are sourced from vineyards in Cortaccia (Kurtatsch), Magrè (Magreid) and Cortina all’Adige (Kurtinig). These are all subzones known for outstanding Pinot Grigio. This light yellow wine has an intense pear aroma. Its fresh noticable acid and quite phenolic finish give impeccable balance with plenty of character.

Entiklar is situated in the southern part of South Tyrol (Unterland), where the wine road winds gently through the most attractive vineyards in the region. In this small hamlet, belonging to the village of Kurtatsch, blessed with a centuries-old tradition of winegrowing, there is a castle dating from the 12th century. This, together with the family name to the wine estate, Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof. The loamy, chalky soils and the Mediterranean climate – characterised by a moderate rainfall and a cool evening wind, which produces considerable differences between day and night temperatures – result in the perfect ripening of the cellars where they lend the wine its unmistakable character. A peculiarity of the Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof wine estate is the Müller Thurgau “Feldmarschall von Fenner”, cultivated at 1.000 meters above sea level. Viticulture at this altitude is unique Europe. Read less

Intense yellow in color with subtle copper highlights, this Pinot Grigio offers a complex bouquet of pear and candied fruit. Dry and full-bodied, with a zesty acidity that supports the solid yet harmo
