"The Cantina Terlano 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay Tradition is a lean-bodied expression with just enough texture and creaminess to accompany shellfish dishes or white meat. The wine pours from the bottle with lightness and luminosity, imparting aromas of melon, peach, white almond and a touch of dry Mediterranean herb. These elements come together with seamless transitions and pretty energy. This is a widely available value wine, with 60,000 bottles made, that really hits the spot, especially on a warm and sunny afternoon. Drink: 2020-2024. 92 points

There are no major changes to report from Cantina Terlano this year. However, I was very pleased to receive a harvest press release—no, not for grapes, but for asparagus. I did not know this, but the Cantina Terlano cooperative members also farm the pointy spring vegetable, and the 2020 harvest brought in 45,000 kilograms of asparagus in April and May. Specifically, these are Margarete asparagus, which are light gold or white in color with delicate flavors. They make a perfect pairing to one of the local Sauvignon Blanc-based wines, served with cold ham and shaved eggs. I am delighted to learn that the South Tyrol asparagus harvest is accompanied by a Terlano asparagus festival, in which an asparagus queen is crowned and paraded in costume to mark the opening of asparagus season."
