Wine Critic Reviews for 2018 Elena Walch Castel Ringberg Pinot Grigio

Straw-green. Ripe pear, peony, resin and honeyed chamomile on the nose and in the mouth. Very accurate aromas and flavors speak clearly of Pinot Grigio. Lovely.

Vinous Media | 91 VM
A lithe and lively single-vineyard Pinot Grigio leaning aromatically into the floral notes of chamomile bolstered by honeydew melon and ripe Bartlett pear. Crisp and tangy, this medium-bodied wine offers lovely minerality with balance and elegance through the spicy finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2024.

Decanter | 90 DEC
Subtle aromas evoking honeydew melon, white stone fruit and Alpine wild flower shape the delicate nose. Round and medium bodied, the palate offers ripe yellow pear, white almond and tangy mineral before closing on a fennel note.

Wine Enthusiast | 90 WE
This is light-bodied and well-cut, with hints of spice and lime blossom accenting the crunchy pear and sliced almond notes. Tangy, featuring a minerally finish of stone and saline. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Trentino: The tall, steep Dolomites in the far north of Italy with their towering peaks and nearly vertical sides provide a unique cozy shelter to the long valleys situated in their foothills. There, blessed by constant warm breeze and protected from any harm lies Trentino, home to a thousands of years-long winemaking tradition. The forty-degrees warm summers in this province may surprise first-time visitors, given the dramatic terrain of the location, but you could tell that Trentino lies within a sweet spot by their legendary wines alone, without ever having been there in person to see this place in its full glory. This is further confirmed by their expertise and skill in producing a variety of excellent wines, able to enchant a diverse audience of connoisseurs. Trentino's vast pedigree has been traditionally most notable for its honey-perfumed, sparkling, Chardonnay-based wines and the classic style of their production. Besides the overachieving whites, Trentino offers a wonderful selection of red wines, made from indigenous Teroldego and Marzemino grapes, as well as some of the most renowned Bordeaux blends in Italy. Rich granite, earthy hues and unbelievably melty tannins are typical for this region. The options are many to choose from, though there's no need to limit oneself to sampling just one type of wine from this region.
Type of Wine Italy (Other): There are dozens of grape varietals grown in Italy so no wonder they produce such a broad range of most exquisite wines. Some of the most cultivated red varieties are Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Sangiovese, and Barbera, while Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also popular. Among whites, you're likely to find Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, or Vernaccia varietals.
