2016 - Antonio Galloni presents Vinous

At their best, Alto Adige's wines deliver superb quality and a level of value matched by few regions in Italy.

  • Pinot Bianco 2004 '04

    95+ points
    Terlano's 2004 Pinot Bianco is a great example of the complexity and nuance these wines develop beginning with their first plateau of maturity. Utterly captivating, the 2004 Pinot Bianco is exceptionally beautiful from start to finish. Extended aging in tank has given the 2004 striking textural richness while preserving enough freshness to allow the wine to age well for another 20 years. Honey, graphite, minerals, candied lemon, candied apricot, spice, vanillin and burnt sugar all flesh out as this captivating, vivid Alto Adige white shows off its class and world-class pedigree. Readers should do whatever they can to taste this beauty from the cellars of Terlano.
  • Terlaner I Grande Cuvée 2013 '13

    95 points
    The 2013 Terlaner I (Primo) Grande Cuvée is the most recent release of Terlano new prestige cuvée, which is meant to evoke memories of the epic wines from the 1950s and 1960s. The 2013 certainly hits all the right notes. Intensely mineral on the outset, the 2013 possesses striking aromatics and layers of finely sculpted fruit, not to mention tremendous overall balance. All the elements fall into place in this effortless, gracious Terlano. Graphite, lemon confit, mint, sage and chamomile wrap around the succulent finish. This is a jewel of a wine from Terlano.
  • Winkl '15

    93 points
    The 2015 Sauvignon Winkl is vivid, crystalline and absolutely beautiful. Intensely varietal aromatics scream out of the glass, yet there are no angular contours or hard edges. Bright, focused and also weightless on the palate, the 2015 Winkl is a terrific example of the green, grassy style of Sauvignon in Alto Adige.
  • Porphyr '13

    93 points
    The 2013 Lagrein Riserva Porphyr is dark, powerful and intense, as it usually is, but with less heft and overall concentration, which is not a bad thing. Raspberry jam, grilled herbs, graphite, menthol, rose petal, spice and licorice race across the palate. The 2013 is vibrant and delineated to the core. As always, the Porphyr is not an especially varietal Lagrein; rather it needs to be appreciated on its own terms. There is plenty to like, that much is certain.
  • Vorberg '13

    93 points
    A rich, unctuous wine, the 2013 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg offers striking depth and nuance, with an extra kick of oiliness from the beautifully ripe fruit. Succulent peach and apricot notes open up first, followed by an expressive mélange of dried flowers, mint, herbs and candied lemon peel. The 2013 is rich, distinctive and capable of aging nicely for another decade, perhaps longer.
  • Terlaner '15

    91 points
    A wine of precision and nuance, the 2015 Terlaner Classico once again shows why this is one of Alto Adige's most compelling and delicious wines. The Pinot Blanc/Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc blend that has worked so well here for decades yields a white endowed with striking focus. White flowers, lemon peel, ripe orchard fruit, apricot pit, almond, mint and chamomile form a super-appealing fabric of aromas, flavors and textures. There is a lot to like here. The Terlano has a level of precision that none of these varieties show on their own. Then again, that is the magic of blends.
  • Gewürztraminer '15

    90 points
    The 2015 Gewürztraminer is another very pretty wine in Terlano's entry-level range. Although quite varietal and expressive, the 2015 remains light on its feet, with little of the cloying sweetness that is often found in Gewürztraminers at this level. Ginger, tropical fruit, wild flowers and honey grace the soft, open-knit finish.
  • Müller Thurgau '15

    90 points
    The 2015 Müller Thurgau is one of the highlights in Terlano's entry-level range. Grassy, expressive aromatics meld into green orchard fruit, mint and white pepper in a delineated, refreshing white that is already quite expressive. I would prefer to drink the 2015 over the next year or two, while the flavors remain crisp.
  • Pinot Bianco '15

    90 points
    The 2015 Pinot Bianco is very pretty. Surprisingly tightly wound because of its recent bottling, the 2015 will benefit from at least another few months of cellaring. Sweet orchard fruit and expressive floral notes are front and center, but it is the wine's translucence that I find especially appealing. The interplay of energy and fruit intensity makes the 2015 a delicious wine to drink over the next handful of years.
  • Torilan '13

    90 points
    The 2013 Torilan, Terlano's Merlot/Cabernet blend, is a prototypical Alto Adige red with bright stone fruit, savory herbs, spice, licorice, and floral overtones. Drink this mid-weight, cool-climate Bordeaux blend over the next few years.
