"The 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Tradition is another fantastic value wine that matches the simple versatility of the grape with the cool and crisp personality of the Italian Dolomites. The wine pours from the bottle with pretty luminosity, and the bouquet presents classic aromas of pear, melon, apple and almond. There's a fun touch of saffron, dried mint and crushed oyster shell that adds an extra layer of dimension and depth. Production is an ample 100,000 bottles. Drink: 2020-2023. 91 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."
