  4. Linticlarus Pinot Nero Riserva Alto Adige DOC

“Linticlarus” is the name of an ancient Roman Fortress from which the village of Entiklar (where the winery is located) gets its name. Made from 100% Pinot Nero fermented in stainless steel, the wine spends one year in French oak barriques followed by an additional year in bottle for further refinement. Christof Tiefenbrunner has succeeded in producing a stellar wine from this often finicky grape.

Wine Production

Fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks is followed by malolactic fermentation and a 12-month aging period in small oaken barrels. After a further six months in large wooden casks, the wine ages for another year in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

The Linticlarus Pinot Nero is light ruby-garnet in color with seductive aromas of red cherry, wild berries, and violets. On the palate the wine is well-balanced with flavors of tart red cherry and red berries with hints of vanilla and spice. The tannins are silky and the finish is crisp and refreshing.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with game, fowl and roasted pork as well as funghi based dishes and hard cheeses.
