    "[...] La cooperativa di Cornaiano conta sulla passionie e la competenza di una fitta schiera di viticoltori, ben 200, che lungo i dolci pendii della zona d'Oltradige conducono 220 ettari di vigneto sotto l'attenta regia del gruppo tecnico guidato da Gerhard Kofler. A completare la piattaforma viticola piccoli appezzamenti nella Bassa Atesina, in particolare nella zona di Mazzon. In cantina l'attenzione è volta alla valorizzazione dei vitigni storici della provincia e alla produzione di vini di forte espressione territoriale. Centralitá assoluta per il pinot nero, con diverse etichette dedicate al vitigno borgognone. Sugli scudi anche quest'anno il Trattmann '20, una Riserva che negli ultimi anni ha fondato la sua cifra stilistica sull'eleganza e la tensione, con il frutto scuro che trova complessitá e articolazione intrecciando le note di erbe officinali e di sottobosco. Al palato il tannino è ben levigato e l'acidità dona slancio e lunghezza al sorso. Ottimi sia il Pinot Bianco Flora '21 sia la schiava Gschleier della medesima vendemmia.  


    96+ pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2012
    This is a new wine from Girlan that represents a prolonged search for the best vineyard site for the production of Pinot Noir. The 1.6-hectare Ganger vineyard (at 360 to 380 meters above sea level) is one of the prized gems of the Mazzon (Mazon in German) subzone. The 2012 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Mazon Vigna Ganger represents one of the region's most concrete new attempts at specific vineyard designation definition. Alto Adige has a long ways to go in this regard. The wine is absolutely beautiful with an impeccable sense of finesse and depth. It offers more and more the longer you contemplate the bouquet. Wild berry is backed by tar, licorice and red rose. The mouthfeel is super silky and long. This is a lovely wine that is just at the beginning of a long life ahead.
    94 pts.TRATTMANN Pinot Noir Riserva 2019
    The Girlan 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Trattmann delivers redcurrant, cherry skin and soft earthy sensations. This wine is very floral in personality with dried rose and violets. It all checks out, especially if you are curious to taste a high-elevation Italian expression of this fragrant Burgundian grape. This wine offers elegance through and through. It ages in oak (barrique and botte) for 12 months. Some 28,000 bottles were made.
    93 pts.FLORA Pinot Bianco Riserva 2019
    The Girlan 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Riserva Flora shows beautiful aromas that reflect the minerality of calcareous soils and the light spice of aging in large oak casks (with partial malolactic fermentation because Pinot Bianco does not keep its acidity as well as, say, Chardonnay). This wine offers volume and a very pretty, almost creamy texture. The finish is supple and long.
    92 pts.FLORA Sauvignon 2020
    The Girlan 2020 Alto Adige Sauvignon Flora is a blend of fruit from three separate vineyards. The wine is partially aged in stainless steel and in part on the lees in large oak casks. One of these sites is prized for freshness and the other two for aromas and fruitiness. This perfumed wine is linear and tight with bright acidity and energy.
    92 pts.FLORA Chardonnay 2020
    The Girlan 2020 Alto Adige Chardonnay Flora shows plenty of fresh orchard fruit and crisp apple with background spice and crushed stone. The winemaking team works with yeasts and reductive winemaking techniques to give this wine its razor-fresh, food-friendly approach.
    91 pts.PLATT&RIEGL Pinot Bianco 2021
    Made with fruit from different parcels, the Girlan 2021 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Platt & Riegl is the estate's mid-range expression of the grape that achieves a fresh, punchy and easy-drinking style. The wine offers a fruity side that is contrasted against a salty side with plenty citrus and honeydew melon. There is a touch of sweet apple on the close.

    94 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2020
    Dark cherries, wild berries, dark chocolate, licorice and dried flowers. Medium- to full-bodied with good concentration and intensity. Firm and focused tannins, but smooth and supple overall. Drink or hold.
    94 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2019
    A spicy pinot with ripe red berries, licorice, hibiscus and hints of bark on the nose. Attractive cherry fruit on the medium- to full-bodied palate with a wide and velvety tannin structure. Supple and rich. Drink or hold.
    95 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2018
    So youthful for almost 4 years old, this has an incredibly deep nose of forest berries, savory notes and flint. What an imposing stature and remarkable structure, the generous tannins so fine that you could spend an hour studying just the texture of this masterpiece. Enormously long, plush finish, the new oak already completely absorbed. Only just beginning to open up. The best vintage ever of this wine! Drinkable now, but best from 2024.
    95 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2017
    Great sour cherries, red roses, savory and truffle aromas. Powerful and concentrated, but these qualities are combined with terrific balance, the fine tannins driving the wine forward like a passenger liner plowing through the waves. Then the deep, dark and complex finish seals the deal. Drink or hold.
    95 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2015
    Lots of pure fruit with tangerine and ripe-strawberry aromas, as well as hints of ash and minerals. Full-bodied with layers of ripe fruit and round, creamy tannins. Hints of cedar and chocolate underneath it all. Fresh and opulent, yet formed and framed. Drink or hold.
    95 pts.VIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2014
    Very attractive pinot with strawberry, cherry and fresh rose-leaf aromas that follow through to a medium body with firm, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and solid with beautiful precision and finesse to the structure. Drink or hold.
    94 pts.CURLAN Pinot Noir Riserva 2020
    Ripe raspberries and red plums with hints of spices and undergrowth. Firm and crunchy, with a medium body and refreshing acidity. Lively and succulent fruit with a bright finish. Drink or hold.
    94 pts.CURLAN Pinot Noir Riserva 2019
    This imposing pinot noir is still very young. Flinty and spicy with an impressive concentration of red-berry and mineral character on the compact and highly structured palate. This is going to need several years to open up, but has all the things we look for in high-end wines of this category. Very long finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.
    94 pts.CURLAN Pinot Noir Riserva 2018
    Exceptionally deep and ripe for an Alto Adige pinot noir, this has full plum and pomegranate aromas, plus subtle wet-earth and toast notes. Full-bodied, richly textured and concentrated, but the acidity and generous supple tannins discreetly keep this right on track. The 15% alcohol is barely perceptible, as is often the case in Burgundy. Drink or hold.
    93 pts.FLORA Sauvignon 2020
    This Alpine sauvignon blanc is so easy to enjoy, thanks to its beautiful balance, but it’s also seriously concentrated and very subtle, so that you could spend a long time lingering over its many details. A whole microcosm of citrus aromas is in here! Drink or hold.
    93 pts.TRATTMANN Pinot Noir Riserva 2021
    This pinot noir is very youthful, with lively, earthy strawberries, raspberries and graphite. Smooth and full on the palate, showing very good tannins and crisp acidity, with a chalky, oaky finish. Try from 2025.
    92 pts. TRATTMANN Pinot Noir Riserva 2020
    This offers notes of dark spices like licorice and cloves as well as red and dark berries, hints of potpourri and burnt orange peel. Medium- to full-bodied, structured and chalky with firm tannins and succulent fruit. Generous and persistent. Drink or hold
    92 pts.FLORA Chardonnay 2020
    So much candied-lemon character and a touch of toasted nuts is just beginning to develop as this sophisticated Alto Adige chardonnay enters its best drinking phase. Impressive substance and underplayed power on the generous palate. Then comes the finish, in which chalky, lemony and toasty notes are beautifully interwoven. Drink or hold.
    94 pts.GSCHLEIER ALTE REBEN Vernatsch 2022
    Bright pale ruby in the glass, this vernatsch shows amazing freshness, with flowers, grapefruit zest, red currants and white pepper. With fruit to the fore, the palate flows silky and smooth with a biting finish, a lot of crunchiness and good, polished length. Drink now.
    92 pts.GSCHLEIER ALTE REBEN Vernatsch 2021
    Ripe red berries, dried orange peel, spicy herbs and crushed stones. Medium- to full-bodied, rich and layered with ripe cherries and mulberries framed with some tense, crunchy tannins. Lingering and warming finish. Drink now.
    92 pts.FASS NR. 9 Vernatsch 2023
    Intense nose that’s slightly reductive yet vibrant and complex, with red currants, smoke, minerals and white pepper. The attack is crisp, with a light body, velvety tannins and a polished, chewy finish. Drink now.
    92 pts. PLATT&RIEGL Pinot Bianco 2021
    So much sliced-pear and white-peach on the nose, together with a citrus-blossom touch, make this an extremely appealing dry pinot bianco. Generous palate, but there’s even more fruit and both are beautifully balanced by the Alpine stream freshness at the long, wet-stone finish. Drink or hold.
    91 pts. Pinot Grigio 2021
    I love the floral charm of this juicy and well-crafted pinot grigio that is so much more joyful than the norm for this category. Lovely, fresh lemon-cream character on the mid-palate and slightly pithy crispness to the bright finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
    91 pts.Pinot Bianco 2020
    A wonderful refreshing and invigorating dry pinot blanc with tons of white-peach, snow-pea and spring-meadow aromas. Spot-on balance on the sleek, juicy and crystal clear, medium-bodied palate. Drink now. Screw cap.
    91 pts.INDRA Sauvignon 2021
    A suave and elegant sauvignon with not a hint of the gritty tartness that often mars wines from this grape. Plenty of ripe-melon and yellow-grapefruit aromas, plus impressive substance on the ample palate. Long, very clean fresh-herb finish. Drink or hold.
    92 pts. PATRICIA Pinot Noir 2021
    Vivid character here, offering ripe raspberries and strawberries together with spicy and earthy undertones as well as a touch of walnut and bark. Medium-bodied, juicy and ripe with crunchy tannins and a mellow, red-fruited finish. Drink now.
    91 pts.FLORA Pinot Noir Riserva 2019
    Some bottle age has mellowed the red-berry fruit of this medium-bodied pinot noir and helped to develop the wild-herb note. Very neatly balanced, the tannins remaining in the background and the discreet acidity lifting the zesty finish. Drink or hold.
    90 pts. Pinot Bianco 2021
    A very clean dry pinot blanc with fresh sliced-pear and yellow-apple fruit. Plenty of juicy fruit on the sleek and straight palate, the ripeness and substance neatly underplayed. Very easy to enjoy. Drink now. Screw cap.

    "Tagliato il traguardo dei 100 anni, la storica cantina di produttori di Cornaiano, con i suoi 200 soci che si prendono cura di 220 ettari di splendidi vigneti, guarda con estrema fiducia al futuro, grazie a un lavoro ormai decennale operato su vini e vigneti dal dinamico staff guidato dal kellermeister Gerhard Kofler e dal nuovo presidente Oscar Lorandi. Se il punto di forza sono i vini rossi più fini ed eleganti, come la mitica Schiava Gschleier e il poker di vini da pinot nero, anche i bianchi prodotti con gli internazionali marcano stretto le migliori etichette altoatesine e nazionali."

    Il concetto di terroir è ben rappresentato dalla filosofia produttiva della cantina, una cooperativa nata nel 1923 e che oggi conta circa 200 soci. Qui, infatti, dopo aver individuato le varietà maggiormente espressive, si è data loro la giusta collocazione sui suoli dell’Oltradige e della Bassa Atesina. Dare risalto ai cru del territorio è, infatti, l’obiettivo che l’azienda intende perseguire anche nei prossimi anni, introducendo nuove declinazioni del pinot nero, dello chardonnay e della vernatsch per  identificarsi sempre più attorno a queste tre cultivar. Vendemmie manuali, pressature a grappolo intero, vinificazioni per gravità e affinamento su fecce fini sono alcuni strumenti a disposizione dei tecnici per valorizzare ciò che di buono offrono le uve.

    "L’accoppiata Gerhard Kofler e Oscar Lorandi, rispettivamente Kellermeister e direttore della storica cantina, è riuscita in pochi anni a trasformare un’azienda un po' sonnecchiante in una delle realtà produttive più interessanti e in crescita della provincia di Bolzano. Vini sempre più eleganti e definiti gli stanno regalando crescenti e meritatissimi successi. Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, Pinot Nero e tra le più grandi espressioni della Schiava sono i cavalli di battaglia di quest’azienda ai vertici assoluti della produzione altoatesina."

    "Un crescendo entusiasmante di ricchezza estrattiva svelano i bianchi di Girlan. Dalla densa glicerina di pesca del Sauvignon Flora 2018, questo davvero di purezza olfattiva massimamente illibata per l'inappuntabile enologia trasformativa, alla più polposa banana dello Chardonnay Flora 2018. Infine il Gewürztraminer Flora 2019, dalla viscosità di tatto e dalla potenza di un rosso, certo uno fra migliori del millesimo testati quest'anno. Di eccellente nitidezza anche il frutto di bosco del Pinot Nero Riserva Trattmann 2017, pure di questo maestoso, così come la fragola e la viola del passito Pasithea Rosa 2018. Chiude un capolavoro in assoluto, il Pasithea Oro 2018. Apoteosi quintessenziale di tutte le dolcezze in sapore e profumo, in aroma di spezie e di fiore, che le più belle uve dell'Alto Adige possano naturalmente recare ove tecnicamente trasformare in modo sì limpido e puro.
