The 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Sanct Valentin ushers forth a steady stream of pure peach, poached pear and Golden Delicious apple. This is a beautiful wine that awards the palate with the freshness of high-altitude winemaking and the overall precision of the Pinot Bianco grape. This wine emerges from what was considered an uneven and hot vintage with victory and lasting charm.

Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Here is a rich and creamy Pinot Bianco, delivering toasted brioche and marzipan accents layered with Golden Delicious apple and lemon curd flavors. Round and medium-bodied, this is shaped by snappy acidity through to the lightly spiced and smoky finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,700 cases made, 50 cases imported.
Winery
Pinot blanc has formed part of the premium Sanct Valentin line since 2001. Minimum yield from carefully selected vineyards speak to the fact that a lively, powerful top wine is pressed from the long underrated grape. Aged in wood, it is captivating as a result of its power and richness on the one hand, and because of its clarity and mineral finesse on the other. Its longevity is a compliment to its extraordinary quality.

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

As the name suggests, the northern Italian wine region of Trentino-Alto Adige is made up of two separate areas, with Trento in the south, and the Adige river in the north. There are few parts of Italy quite as alluring for wine fans as Trentino-Alto Adige, as this is an area in which Italian wines become really quite unique and surprising. As the region is nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, it is quite a long way from the sun drenched islands of the south, or the rolling hillsides of central Italy. Indeed, the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige are packed full of fresh, vibrant alpine flavors and aromas, and are as influenced by the Germanic styles of wine making as they are influenced by those of the Italians, making the wines of this region really quite unusual, and utterly captivating. Wineries in Trentino-Alto Adige use both native and imported grape varietals for their wines, and they are generally considered to be amongst the finest in Italy.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
