Elena Walch 2021 Pinot Nero Alto Adige


In stock

SKU: 32002 Categories: ,


The Elena Walch 2021 Pinot Nero (aka Blauburgunder and Pinot Noir) is from way up north in the Alto Adige region of Italy (aka Südtirol).

A heady, perfumed nose of cranberries, raspberries and both red and dark cherries, with a spicy touch of white pepper in the background. On the mouth, it manages to be fun and serious all at once, with some lovely, silky ripe tannins bounding off the fresh red fruits, with some thyme notes, then bringing it all together with a crisp acidity and a long savoury, graphite finish.

Producer Information: Elena Walch

A successful architect, Elena Walch married into one of the oldest winemaking families in the Alto Adige in the 1980s and her first vintage under her own name was in 1988, when she became the mountain region’s first female winemaker. She went on to win acclaim around the world, with daughters Julia and Karoline now working alongside her. The pioneering winemaker owns some of the best vineyards in Italy, including two monopoles. Castel Ringberg in Caldaro and Kastelaz in Tramin, both at 300-400m altitude. These are officially recognised with the prestigious geographical domination ‘Vigna’.
