"This is a versatile and handy wine to drink throughout the warm season and beyond. The 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Tradition offers a classic interpretation of the grape with aromas of pear, Golden Delicious apple, crushed almond and that characteristic note of white dolomitic rock that is so beautifully distinctive in the wines of Alto Adige. This price point is super attractive, and you get phenomenal value with this 110,000-bottle release, so I can't help but recommend that you buy this terrific wine by the case, not the bottle. These results are exciting and extremely satisfying. Drink: 2020-2024. 93 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."
