2017 Alto Adige Pinot Nero “Mazzon”

Ferruccio Carlotto

A Pinot this alluring that’s not from Burgundy? Send me a case! Father-daughter duo Ferruccio and Michela Carlotto farm their micro-estate in the mountains of Ora, just south of Bolzano, which also happens to be home to Mazzon, one of the finest crus for Pinot Nero. Is it the cool Alpine air in Alto Adige that preserves the youthful berry aromas in their grapes, or is it the limestone subsoils, or both? Either way, Filari di Mazzon is seductively perfumed and impossibly elegant. Any home-cooked meal would feel fancy in its presence, but a perfectly pink lamb chop roasted in rosemary would be a worthy choice.

About Alto Adige

map of 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.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
