Sirmian is the top single-vineyard Pinot Bianco from Nals Margreid, a grape variety also known as Weissburgunder in this part of Italy. The vineyard is between 600-800 metres elevation on the steep sided slopes of the upper Adige valley very close to the Austrian border. Pinot Bianco is not normally thought of as being the pinnacle of a producer's range, certainly not in Alsace where it is also widely grown, but here this is the flagship variety of the Nals Margreid co-operative, and it is recognised as one of the world's best versions of Pinot Bianco. The wine is creamy, but crystalline in its purity, with a palate that is rich in fruit, with a streak of minerality and acidity which frame the wine for 5 - 10 years of ageing and development.
