Manicor Wine Estate

29 Nov

You’ve never heard of Manicor Wine Estate? Me neither, until a few weeks ago when a tasting of a line-up of 6 of their wines stunned us all. Our descriptions of the different wines had words in common, like “beautiful”, “elegant”, “delicious”, “long” and “pure”.

Manicor has been making wine for over 400 hundred years in Alto Adige, in the north of Italy. That area is famous for stunning white wines, and the Manicor line-up of 4 whites is superior. The two red wines are just as good, a surprise for wines from Alto Adige, not known for their reds. We were so impressed that we are had a tasting at Pairings Wine and Food, where everyone had a chance to taste the six wines listed below (paired with food).

 

Riserve della Contessa; Pinot Bianco 60%, Chard 30%, Sauv Blanc 10%

Moscato Giallo

Sauvignon Blanc

Pinot Bianco

Lagrein 35%, Merlot 40%, Cab 25%

Pinot Nero
