90 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$24 list] Cantina Terlano does a great job with this bright and refreshing white wine. The 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio is the kind of wine that begs a second and perhaps a third bottle during one of those epic beachfront seafood meals that define Italian living. The wine is absolutely crisp and fine with balanced acidity that finds beautiful contrast against slightly sweet flavors of pink grapefruit, peach and passion fruit. You also get some distant hay and dried herb at the back. Drink this delicious Grigio within the next 18 months. Drink: 2016-2018. (Jul 2016)"

Producer notes: "An extremely elegant wine is the Pinot Grigio with its multifaceted fruity bouquet. It combines a youthful freshness with balanced acidity and a mild finish. Color: intensive straw yellow. Aroma: Our Pinot Grigio pairs stimulating fruit -- reminiscent of grapefruit, lychee and white melon -- with the floral aromatic character of a freshly mown meadow. Taste: With its finely balanced components -- from aromas of black tea to exotic fruity nuances of melon and ripe grapefruit -- this is a superbly full and at the same time mellow wine. Food Pairing: Ideal with South Tyrolean hors d’oeuvres such as smoked bacon, cured meats like Bündnerfleisch or venison salami, and their typical Italian counterparts like Parma ham, dried tomatoes and olive paté; herb risotto, nettle gnocchi or beetroot dumplings; lightly truffled dishes; tender veal and fine grilled fish. Alcohol 13.5%."
