  4. Merus Pinot Bianco Alto Adige DOC

Founded in 1848, the Tiefenbrunner winery is situated near Entiklar, a picturesque hamlet in the heart of the Italian Alps. Made from 100% Pinot Bianco fermented in stainless steel, this wine is aged briefly on the lees to add richness to the final wine.

Wine Production

Temperature-controlled fermentation at 68 °F in steel tanks is followed by a four-month aging on the fine lees in concrete vats prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

This is an elegant Pinot Bianco with a light medium-lemon color. The wine offers aromas of white flowers, lemon-lime citrus, and hints of green apples and pears. On the palate, the wine's subtle, creamy texture is countered by refreshing acidity and minerality.

Food Pairing

This wine is wonderful on its own as an aperitif or paired with light salads and vegetable antipasti, light appetizers, fish dishes and asparagus.
