Rottensteiner Pinot Noir 2021

Updated: Jan 17

Grape: Pinot Noir

Region: Alto Adige, Italy 

Farming: Organic 

Family business” is a tag that many operations pin to their lapels. But the Hans Rottensteiner Estate Winery does so legitimately. “All of the family members are involved in some way in the success of the operation – whether directly in the winery, in the office, or as grape suppliers,” explains Hannes Rottensteiner, who runs the estate winery along with his wife Judith in what is now the third generation. But the estate is not just rooted in the family, it is also rooted in the world of Bolzano wine and its tradition. The Pinot Noir has been cultivated in South Tyrol for approximately 150 years, and it feels very comfortable in this area. South Tyrol’s Pinot Noirs are among the best in Italy and they have also drawn attention to themselves at international tastings. Tough, the Pinot Noir is a very difficult variety, with demanding requirements from the soil and the climate, reacting very sensitively in excessive productions and demanding the highest attention in the cellar.
