WINE REVIEW: Kellerei Kurtatsch Glen, 2016 Blauburgunder Riserva, Südtirol-Alto Adige DOC, Italy $34
by Andrew Chalk
A Pinot Noir (Blauburgunder in German) from the German influenced part of Italy that borders Austria. The terrain is mountainous and at altitude Pinot Noir produces expressive wines. This wine is distinctively different from California Pinot Noir from Russian River or the central coast. And somewhat leaner than Oregon examples.
Really enjoyable and ready to drink now..
