Gewürztraminer Passito Juvelo 2020 - 95 pts
Packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle, the 2020 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Passito Juvelo has nutty notes that are lavishly layered over with honey and sun-dried apricot. The wine is viscous and rich with lovely fruit weight that wraps opulently over the palate. The acidity and those bright fruit flavors keep the wine from feeling too heavy. Winemaking sees a brief three hours of skin maceration and barrique aging for 11 months. The alcohol content on this wine is a contained 11.5%. Only 2,500 bottles were made.
Doran Chardonnay 2019 - 93 pts
The 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay Riserva Doran is a generous and ample wine with flinty notes of crushed stone followed by softer tones of apricot, honey and Golden Delicious apple. There are soft oak renderings on this full-bodied white, and the wine's texture is smooth and supple. The wine is fermented in oak, and it ages on the lees in tonneaux for 12 months. Only 5,000 bottles were released.
Anrar Pinot Noir Riserva 2019 - 93 pts
The 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Anrar offers depth and careful sophistication with dark fruit, scorched earth, tar and licorice. The wine treads softly over the palate with concentrated fruit and delicate oak. You could hold this bottle or drink it now. Only 5,000 bottles were made.
Gant Merlot Riserva 2019 - 93 pts
The 2015 Alto Adige Merlot Riserva Gant is a wine of enormous beauty and depth. It opens to dark, succulent and enriched layers of dark cherry, blackcurrant, spice, savory tobacco and leather. The wine rises from the glass with beautiful intensity and proud, immediate aromas that wrap thickly over the senses. The wine's characteristic softness —that pure essence of Merlot, for lack of a better term—is stunning and delicious. This wine should hold steady over the next 10 years. Only 9,000 bottles were produced.
Tor di Lupo Lagrein Riserva 2019 - 92 pts
The Lagrein grape always offers inky and impenetrable density. The 2019 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Tor di Lupo shows opulent fruit with dried plum and prune. This is a heavy and sticky red wine that would best pair with succulent meats such as lamb or steak. There is a hint of bitter almond on the close. 6,000-bottle release.
Finado Pinot Bianco 2021 - 92 pts
Made in stainless steel only, the 2021 Alto Adige Weissburgunder Pinot Bianco Finado is another terrific expression of one of my favorite Alto Adige white grapes. This wine is especially bright and crisp with lemon preserves, fresh pear, lychee fruit and crushed stone. It offers outstanding value with 36,000 bottles released.
Andrius Sauvignon Blanc 2020 - 92 pts
The 2020 Alto Adige Sauvignon Blanc Andrius has a soft and slightly waxy texture with preserved lemon, candied apricot and dried orange zest. This wine takes a sophisticated look at Sauvignon Blanc, offering lasting richness with hints of toasted almond and sweet pie crust. This vintage saw 9,000 bottles produced.
