    "[...] Il piccolo borgo di Cornaiano è costituito da una manciata di case che si distribuiscono attorno alla chiesa. Poco più in lá ci sono solo vigneti, adagiati su una sorta di ondulato altipiano che cattura i raggi del sole da mattina a sera. Qui ha sede la storica cooperativa Girlan: circa 200 soci che conducono con passione e competenza altrettanti ettari concentrati principalmente nel territorio d'Oltradige. Caratterizzato da finezza e nerbo, il profilo espressivo é influenzato dalla giacitura dei pendii, piú che dalle differenze di altitudine, che recensiremo nelle future edizioni. I Pinot Nero sono sempre più al centro del progetto, a partire da un Trattmann '18 da incorniciare: più fresco e raffinato nell'espressione aromatica rispetto alle ultime versioni, è dotato di un palato ricco e al contempo agile. Splendida anche la Schiava Gschleier, che sfrutta l'ottima vendemmia 2019 per donarsi profonda e articolata all'assaggio; da segnalare inoltre la nascita del nuovo Pinot Nero Curlan, frutto di sole vigne di Cornaiano, che recensiremo nelle future edizioni.

    93 pts.VIGNA GANGER MAZON Pinot Noir Riserva 2017
    Showing up in a heavy bottle, this is the big boy from Girlan, in both form and function. There is more maturity to the 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Mazon Vigna Ganger, and I guess this makes sense given the hot vintage, but it also falls flatter too, from an aromatic point of view. The wine bursts through the door with big richness and texture, and in fact, it is mostly played forward in terms of that texture in the mouth. Dark cherry and cassis also appear, but this wine is less nuanced in this vintage compared to cooler ones. I came back 24 hours later and still found a lot of cherry, and even cherry liqueur. This is a production of 2,225 bottles.

    92 pts.TRATTMANN Pinot Noir Riserva 2018
    The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Noir Riserva Trattmann is fragrant and bright with wild cassis and raspberry aromas backed by mild spice, iron ore and some pretty mineral definition. This Riserva clocks in at 14.5% alcohol, but that power is nicely woven into the soft and silky fiber of the wine. Like some of the other wines from this vintage, the intensity is milder and downplayed. This was a release of some 37,000 bottles.

    92 pts.FLORA Chardonnay 2019
    With 11,000 bottles made, the Girlan 2019 Alto Adige Chardonnay Flora is big-boned and ready for an after-party of grilled chicken breast with sage. This wine opens to a medium-saturated golden hue. You'll find orchard fruit and toasted almond and a hint of caramel or baked apple, thanks to some oak aging. And at a 14% alcohol content, this Chardonnay shows an unexpected kick on the close.

    91 pts.FLORA Sauvignon 2019
    With 15,000 bottles made, the Girlan 2019 Alto Adige Sauvignon Flora is snappy and clean with citrus, peach and limestone. The wine offers good bounce and lift, given its regimen of half oak and half steel. You also get a nice, creamy texture in the mouth.

    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 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.

    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 2019
    Plenty of flinty, wild-herb and savory complexity makes this stand out in the crowd of attractively fruity and well-balanced Alto Adige pinot noirs. Impressive concentration on the tightly wound mid-palate, then comes a long, mineral finish that’s still got so much life in it. 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.

    92 pts.GSCHLEIER ALTE REBEN Vernatsch 2020
    Apart from its self-confidently dry finish, this vernatsch does a good impression of a well-crafted pinot noir. Subtle red-berry and wild-herb character and a sleek, well-structured body make this a striking red that’s light-years’ removed from international norms. So invigorating! Intense dried-herb character at the long, clean finish. Drink or hold.

    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.

    91 pts. PATRICIA Pinot Noir 2020
    Bright nectarine and redcurrant aromas are neatly married on the lively, medium-bodied palate. Everything fits nicely together and the overall effect is very animating, the moderately dry finish long and clean. Drink or hold.

    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.

    GIRLAN: 4/5 Trauben [internationale Spitze]

    "In nur 15 Jahren ist es Gerhard Kofler gelungen, die Kellerei vom behäbigen Vernatschbetrieb zum nach Perfektion strebenden Blauburgunder Produzenten zu formen – auch dank seiner Zielstrebigkeit und Motivationsfähigkeit. Als bisher Einziger weltweit drang er mit einer Genossenschaftskellerei in die höchsten Höhen der Königsklasse Pinot Noir vor. 2006 legte der Winzer den Grundstein für diese vinologische Sensation. Die erste Blauburgunder Selektion aus den Lagen des Trattmannhofs bei Mazon rief mit ihrer burgundisch anmutenden Pinot-Noir-Frucht ungläubiges Staunen hervor. Niemand hätte es für möglich gehalten, dass eine genossenschaftlich strukturierte Südtiroler Kellerei wie Girlan einmal in der Champions League der Weinszene spielen würde. Und Gerhard Kofler nahm in dieser Lage eine nochmalige Selektion vor. So wurde der erste Jahrgang 2012 „Vigna Ganger“, eine nur 1,6 Hektar große Monopollage innerhalb des Trattmannhofs, nicht nur einer der beiden teuersten Pinot Noirs südlich des Brenners, sondern auch der am höchsten bewertete Wein dieser Rebsorte in Gesamtitalien."


    5/5 TraubenVIGNA GANGER Pinot Noir Riserva 2016

    Opulente, reife Kirschfrucht, dann Mandelkrokant du Karamell. Am Gaumen feste Fleischigkeit, ganz eng verwobene Struktur. Sehr eigenständig, braucht keine internationalen Vorbilder.

    4/5 TraubenTRATTMANN Pinot Noir Riserva 2017

    Ein wahres Gewürzpaket mit Piment, Nelke und Zimt umschmeichelt die Nase. Garantiert Unterhaltung für den gesamten Abend.

    4/5 TraubenFLORA Chardonnay 2018

    Frischer Auftakt mit weißem Pfeffer und Teeblättern. Superpuristisch im Gaumen, mineralisch und filigran. Sommerpicknick mit Freunden.

    4/5 TraubenFLORA Sauvignon 2018

    Ein Wein, der sich vom verhaltenen Schmeichler zum spannenden Unterhaltskünstler entwickelt.

    4/5 TraubenPASITHEA ORO Gewürztraminer Spätlese 2018

    Zitronat und Orangeat in der Nase, dicht, voll und anhaltend im Geschmack, sehr süß, dabei sehr stimmig; zu Crepes Suzette.

    "Cornaiano è una zona perfetta per una viticoltura di qualità. I vigneti si adagiano sulle colline, baciate dal sole, ad altitudine comprese tra 440 e i 550 metri. Protette a nord dalle Alpi, s'allargano a sud verso la vallata dell'Adige. Si perccepisce chiaramente l'influsso mediterraneo e caldo, mitigato però da fresche brezze notturne. Le forti escursioni termiche donano ai vini arumi, freschezza e longevitá. Il vitigno bandiera della cantina è il pinot nero, e sono due eccellenze premiate quest'anno: il Trattmann e un insuperabile Curlan."

    "Ben due i nuovi Pinot Nero proposti da Girlan, Riserva Flora 2019 e Riserva Curlan 2018, con i quali la Cantina comincia a precisare il progetto volto a legare la propria identità a pochi, signifi cativi vitigni, ovvero pinot nero, chardonnay e schiava, con distinte selezioni che raccontino le peculiarità delle diverse aree di coltivazione. Se la Riserva Flora raccoglie le uve di tutte le aree, la Riserva Curlan, vino di rara eccellenza, è espressione dei vigneti di Cornaiano, mentre la Riserva Trattmann lo è di quelli di Mazzon. Al vertice si pone, però, la Riserva Vigna Ganger, cru di straordinaria personalità."

    "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.
