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

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 throughout the growing season, 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, Müller Thurgau, and others. Alto Adige whites are typically bright and crisp.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Villages or Cru level wines.
