Wine Advocate 91
The 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Finado opens to a luminous, light straw color that reflects the ambient light. This vintage shows zesty and very balanced results with pear, Golden Delicious apple, crushed limestone and a touch of spicy saffron. These aromas are characteristic of dolomitic calcareous soils. Winemaking is simple in stainless steel, with a brief sur lie aging of six months. The wine sports a crisp, lean-bodied mouthfeel, but there is enough acidity and mineral-driven linearity to drive the wine long over the palate. ML

The grapes are harvested by hand in September from the northeastern parcel of the Andriano vineyards. The grapes need a few extra weeks to mature before harvest because of the shadow of Mount Gantkofel, limiting the late afternoon sunlight throughout growing season. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and the wine rests on the lees for 6 months before bottling. Pale yellow in color with slight reflections of green. The bouquet of apples and pears follows through on the palate. Balanced, clean and crisp with a long, satisfying finish.

Cantina Andriano was founded in 1893 and was the first cooperative in Alto Adige. The vineyards are unique to the area because they are protected to the west by Mount Gantkofel which is made of dolomite rock and calcareous stone. The sedimentary rock from this peak over the years has eroded and settled forming a downward sloping hill of deposited soil. This fertile calcareous clay soil is typical of the area and leaves its footprint on the wine's character. The vineyards see the sun from early morning to mid afternoon. These cooler climatic conditions with respect to other areas in Alto Adige are responsible for the crisp acidity in the wines that give them their unique complexity and freshness. The wines are elegant with good aging potential.
About Cantina Andriano
Cantina Andriano was founded in 1893 and was the first cooperative in Alto Adige. The vineyards are unique to the area because they are protected to the west by Mount Gantkofel which is made of dolomite rock and calcareous stone. The sedimentary rock from this peak over the years has eroded and settled forming a downward sloping hill of deposited soil at the base of this valley that expands like a fan from the mouth of the valley, over an area of 200º from south-southeast to northeast and at an altitude of 260-340 meters above sea level. This fertile calcareous clay soil is typical of the area and leaves its footprint in the wine's character. The vineyards see the sun from early morning to mid afternoon. These cooler climatic conditions with respect to other areas in Alto Adige are responsible for the crisp acidity in the wines that give them their unique complexity and freshness. The wines are elegant with good aging potential. In September 2008, Cantina Andriano was absorbed into the cooperative of Cantina Terlano, a move to unify these two cooperatives who are in the same small DOC of Terlano. The Andriano wines however are kept completely separate, as they have their distinct traits, terroir and history. The staff of Terlano manage the vineyards, vinification procedures, and the sales of Andriano wines. Andriano is adopting the same philosophy of Terlano wines: high-quality terroir wines.
