Klaus Lentsch Bachgart Pinot Noir 2016
Like Burgundy if it were made in the Italian Alps. This Pinot Noir has lovely foresty nose and a complex earthy palate. Klaus Lentsch is committed to low yields and high quality. He is a small producer with under 30 acres under vine. The vineyards are situated at 400-600 m above sea level on sunny steep terraces, and planted in clay and gravelly soils. This Pinot Noir is light ruby red with an intense bouquet of red berries and Marasca cherry with a tinge of spice. On the palate it is soft and round with a balanced, medium body, a fresh finish with finely-spiced tannins, and a distinctive mineral presence. I (Marco) really enjoy this wine!
