Merus Pinot Bianco Alto Adige DOC 2011

Founded in 1848, the Tiefenbrunner winery is situated near Entiklar, a picturesque hamlet in the heart of the Italian Alps. Made from 100% Pinot Bianco fermented in stainless steel, this wine is aged briefly on the lees to add richness to the final wine.

Tasting Notes

This is an elegant style of Pinot Bianco. Clear, bright yellow in color, it offers fine floral and green apple aromas on the nose. Its zesty acidity is complemented by a creamy minerality which carries through to its fine, harmonious finish.

Food Pairing

An excellent choice for all sorts of appetizers, as well as asparagus dishes, seafood, grilled poultry, and fresh sheep’s or cow’s milk cheeses.
