Mountain high Pinots from Italy by James Suckling:
“I did a quick tasting over the weekend of a dozen pinot noirs – blauburgunder – from Alto Adige, Italy, and it was one of the most fun tastings I did this summer, so far. It wasn’t because they were the best wines or the most powerful or structured. I regularly drink top Burgundy and just the other night I had a 1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Echezeaux at a dinner with friends from Hong Kong. But it was a fascinating tasting, reviewing a dozen pinots from Italy’s mountainous wine regions.”
