93pts James Suckling

Full, yet subtle nose of crisp pear and candied lemon with delicate herbal notes and a whiff of flint. Impressive substance and textural complexity on the simultaneously generous and precise palate. Spot-on balance of ripeness and freshness at the long, wet-stone finish. A cuvée of pinot bianco, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc with a history going back to 1893. Drink or hold.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is a blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, the three heavy hitters of Alto Adige whites. The Cantina Terlano 2021 Alto Adige Terlaner Cuvée is beautifully silky and textured with flinty mineral, soft orchard fruit and honey. The wine falls gracefully onto the palate with a lightweight but creamy texture. Best after 2022.

Winemaker Notes

A composition of Terlano’s three most traditional white varieties, namely Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon, this old cuvée, which was one of the wines produced when the winery was founded, is an extremely complex wine. Pinot Bianco, as the main variety used in the cuvée, provides the freshness and a good acid structure, while Chardonnay delivers a pleasing warmth and mellowness and Sauvignon Blanc adds the fine aromatic character.

Blend: 60% Pinot Bianco,30% Chardonnay,10% Sauvignon Blanc
