The 2013 Alto Adige Pinot Nero Riserva Praepositus shows a dark garnet color with dim ruby highlights. The wine offers a good amount of aromatic intensity, yet those aromas are never too marked or prominent. This wine takes a delicate, understated approach with wild berry aromas followed by dried mint, pressed violets and rose hip. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. 90/100.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 92/100. The 2013 Pinot Nero Riserva Praepositus is racy and delicate at the same time. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, rose petal, mint and sweet spices give the 2013 much of its pliant, inviting personality. The purity and vibrancy of the fruit here is especially of note. Hints of game and earthiness add complexity on the finish.
