Kurtatsch Freienfeld Riserva Cabernet Sauvignon: a vertical bursting with Alpine character

Exploring the history and winemaking behind the Alto Adige co-op Cantina Kurtatsch's Freienfeld Riserva Cabernet with tasting notes of six vintages between 1992 and 2018.

Like many other wineries in Alto Adige, Cantina Kurtatsch is a cooperative. One of the smallest, in fact. Founded in 1900, its 190 member families grow enough fruit across 190 hectares for 1.5 million bottles per annum, spread across a significant range of 34 wines.

A recent opportunity to taste a vertical of Kurtatsch’s Freienfeld Riserva Cabernet Sauvignon allowed me to appreciate the alpine qualities of this ageable red. It belongs to the coop’s ‘Terroir’ range, which focuses on wines made from low-yielding vines from the best sites, maintaining a sense of place.
