Alto Adige Pinot Nero Riserva DOC

Glen is a Pinot noir named after a district in the municipality of Montan, and is Kurtatsch Winery’s only terroir wine that doesn’t come from the municipality of Kurtatsch. The demanding Pinot noir vine requires cool Alpine microclimate islands, with a late sunrise and mild, long-lasting evening sun. These conditions allow the grapes and wine to develop, thus maintaining their elegant subtlety.
The oscillation between warm Mediterranean days and cool nights condenses the flavors, without losing that distinctive Burgundian finesse. In the nose the Glen Riserva is fine and fresh, characterized by an elegant sweetness reminiscent of mallow. It is velvety on the palate, with a striking flavor of wild berries; echoes of fresh raspberries and wild cherries lend a juicy, delicately spicy backbone to its mellow, fruity sweetness

GLEN 450 - 650 m

Our Pinot noir is named after the village of Glen, located across the valley from Kurtatsch. It is the only wine that is not sourced entirely from the municipality of Kurtatsch. Since Pinot Noir is highly demanding as a variety, and requires a habitat that fulfills very specific requirements, it was planted where it grows best. Afternoon sun, a unique conglomerate soil composed of clay, lime and porphyry, and altitudes between 450 and 650 meters offer ideal conditions for an elegant Pinot Noir.
