Ignaz is a brilliant grapegrower and winemaker with an impish smile; he makes a wide range of varieties with consistent style and attention to detail, from the stoney, mineral Pinot Bianco to a lush, musky Sauvignon; his reds represent the whole range of typical red varieties grown here, from the pale reddish pink of Schiava to the inky purple of Lagrein. This Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir) comes from Alto Adige—Italy’s best region for the production of Pinot Noir—and Ignaz Niedrist is one of its best producers. His Riserva bottling is grown in relatively warm vineyards near his winery. Yields are kept very low, at  less than 2 tons to the acre. The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed, then left at cold temperatures for a few days (‘cold soak’) before fermentation starts in wooden fermenters. No yeasts are added. The wine is aged in barriques (1/4 new) on the fine lees for about 14 months before bottling. Classic color for the variety, pale red with a broad rim. Aromas and flavors of red fruits, forest-floor, cola and mint. Shows a silky texture with some tea-like tannins on the finish. Drinkable young but will repay aging for 5-10 years in your cellar. Lamb chops or roast chicken would be great complements.
