About the Wine

This wine from Girlan proves that these varieties make one delicious threesome. They blend Pinot Noir with two grape varieties native to Alto Adige, Lagrein and Schiava, with results that will have you going back for more.

Aromatic and earthy, each variety works with one another to create a juicy, red-fruited bottle of goodness.

With or without food, it's easy to drink in abundance.

About Girlan

Based in the south Tyrol region of Italy, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Austrian territory when visiting Girlan. High up in these isolated mountains, the region has forged its own unique identity, quite distinct from the rest of Italy.

Girlan is a wine co-operative, with over 200 winegrower members. They one of the region’s finest ‘grower collectives’ producing exemplary Alto Adige wines.

They have long encouraged their growers to focus on those varieties that best suit their soils, aspects and altitudes and have long been the benchmark for single0vineyard, and single varietal wines in the region.

Since cellarmaster Gehard Kofler arrived in 2006, Girlan has truly established themselves as one of the leading producers in the region.

Additional Info

From the Importer

The 448 Rosso is drawn from grapes grown (unsurprisingly) at around 448 metres above sea level in the Alto Adige. It's crafted from a blend of two indigenous Südtirol varieties--Lagrein and Schiava--along with Pinot Nero, for which the terroirs of Alto Adige have proven their aptitude. The Lagrein comes from the deep, sandy soils of the Bassa Atesina (a warmer terroir ideal for ripening Lagrein). The Pinot Nero and Schiava grapes are grown on the hillside vineyards of Cornaiano, in sunny, well-aired vineyards. Fermentation is in tank and old barrels before the wines complete their maturation in concrete vats.
