Lean and light in appearance, the 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Monticol is a very elegant and clear expression. There is some ripe fruit nuance here on the nose, with dark, ripe cherry and blackberry and later some raspberry. It has an easy mouthfeel and even more ripeness in the mouth. This graceful and tight Pinot would make for a nice appetizer with wild mushroom and burrata crostini. Some 35,000 bottles were made.
