A. A. Pinot Bianco DOC “Rarity” 2006

$220.00

JS : This is really wonderful with dried apples, peaches and bitter lemon and cream and floral undertones. Full body. Layered and fulfilling. A wine aged 12 years in stainless steel vats before bottling in June 2018. WA : If you were to condense the excellence of Alto Adige winemaking and squeeze it into a single bottle, the Cantina Terlano 2006 Alto Adige Terlano Pinot Bianco Rarity would be that bottle. This is indeed one of the greatest achievements in vino italiano, and it will break any preconceived notions one might have about Italian white wines. It’s like the mild thumping of a movie soundtrack that suddenly explodes into thundering surround-sound music. This wine hits sixth gear before it even gets onto the autostrada. The aromas are seductive and impeccably balanced, with passion and exotic fruits that segue to more ethereal tones of toasted almond and crushed mountain stone or slate. The wine is aged for ten years in a single stainless steel vat (rigorously protected from oxygen) and is released 13 years after the harvest. There’s nothing left for me to say here other than congratulations on this exceptional creation.
