Winemaker Notes

Color is bright, deep ruby. Aroma and flavor, raspberry and cranberry fruit with a hint of rose leaf and liquorice; ripe fruit flavors and fresh herbs on the palate, delicate and slender, velvety and at the same time taut from the tip of the tongue through to the finish.

Pair with fried, roast and grilled red meats, venison, game and mature soft cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Alto Adige Pinot Nero Mason di Mason opens to simple layers of wild berry, sweet almond, violets and licorice. The wine offers a silky mouthfeel and smooth texture. It does not show the complexity or depth of some of its peers, but it does offer a very faithful and correct interpretation of the grape. I would suggest a slightly shorter drinking window for this Pinot Nero born in the cool climate, mountainous north of Italy.

"Hand-on-Heart". Manincor wines are naturally pure. The 400 year-old wine estate, carefully and prudently extended by the wine cellar built beneath the vines and hardly noticeable from above, epitomises today the tradition and aspirations of a superior wine culture. The estate's historical buildings date from 1608, built by Hieronymus Manincor. The emperor had endowed him with land beside the Lake of Kaltern for his services to Austria and at the same time raised him to the ranks of the nobility.

Alto Adige

View all wine

Taking full advantage of direct sunlight exposure on its steep slopes, many of Alto Adige’s best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude. It is sheltered by the Alps from cold northerly winds and certain locations experience warm and bright sunshine allowing for even ripening of grapes. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, fruity Schiava, as well as some impressive, spicy Pinot Noir. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Muller Thurgau, and others. These whites are bright and crisp in style typically.

Pinot Noir

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
