Girlan - Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Trattman
Founded in 1923 as a small co-operative winery with 23 growers on their books, Girlan is based in the heart of Italy’s beautiful, mountainous, Alto Adige region also known as Südtirol / South Tyrol. Today, about 200 greatly committed and motivated winegrowing families farm 220 hectares of vineyards in the subregions of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina. Girlan is known for producing clean, aromatic, textural, snappy whites as well as
some of the best Italian Pinots Noirs (Trattman, Vigna Gagner).
Organic. 100% Pinot Noir from three crus: Girlan, Mazon, Pinzon. The vineyards are located at an altitude between 380 and 530 meters a.s.l. and are characterized by morainic deposits on volcanic porphyry rock as well as by west-facing, loamy limestone soils. Hand harvested. After destemming, the must is filled by gravity into the steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place (18-20 days). After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in large wooden barrels (50 hl). Finally, the wine is stored for further 6 months in the bottle.
Dusty and floral, the Pinot Noir Riserva Trattmann opens slowly with a blend of wild strawberries, sweet roses and crushed stone. This is a model of purity, with mineral-tinged red berries and inner lavender tones propelled by vibrant acidity. It finishes dramatically long and lightly structured, leaving red plum and sweet inner florals lingering over a coating of gentle tannins. Already so pretty today, the Trattmann will excel through short-term cellaring
