"The 2009 Pinot Bianco is a superb entry-level white redolent of crisp pears, green apples and flowers. This clean, focused white delivers tons of class and elegance in a vibrant, piercing, yet beautifully balanced style. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.

The most impressive wines I tasted this year from Alto Adige came from Cantina di Terlano. Simply put, these are reference point wines. I can’t imagine these wines not being represented in any serious cellar." (WA)

Winery Notes:
With wonderful aromas of apple cider, chalk and lemon zest, this clean and focused wine expands on the palate to reveal warm apple crisp, clove and quince nuances. Possessing a long, concentrated citrus finish, this wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.
