2014 Alto Adige Pinot Nero “Mazzon”

Ferruccio Carlotto

We introduced the 2013 vintage earlier this year, and it was a huge hit. Planted high on a limestone cliff in Sudtirol, Mazzon channels both Austrian and Italian influences. Grown and vinified by the talented father-daughter team of Ferruccio and Michela Carlotto, this wine shows the delicate and refined side of the grape—the side I love and the hardest one to tease out. Aged extensively in large cask, barrel, and bottle, it is released when ready to drink. But, as old vintages attest, Mazzon only improves with age.

About Alto Adige

In the heart of the Dolomites, Alto Adige is Italy’s northernmost wine region. Having changed hands multiples times in its history between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire (it shares a border with Austria), it boasts strong Germanic influence on its culture, language, cuisine, as well as its wines.

The mountainous geography is the principal determinant of local winemaking styles, with the high-altitude vineyards and cool Alpine climate favoring primarily crisp, racy, aromatic whites from varieties like Kerner, Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau, and Grüner Veltliner. A Mediterranean influence on climate is channeled north up the valley until Bolzano, permitting the cultivation of certain reds as well, among which Schiava, Lagrein, Pinot Nero, and Merlot fare best.

Small growers who once sold fruit to the area’s multiple co-ops are now increasingly bottling their own wines. The arrival of many quality-oriented artisans on the scene caught our eye years ago, and we now count three estates from Südtirol, as it is also known, in our portfolio. These high-acid mountain wines make for a beautifully invigorating aperitivo with thinly sliced speck, a local specialty.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
