Teroldego

#vine #blackgrapes #native #trentino

Teroldego is a vine cultivated almost exclusively in Trentino-Alto Adige, in an area north of Trento called Piana Rotaliana. Famous since ancient times (also cited in a notarial act of the '400), it seems to originate from the Verona area even if recent DNA analysis have identified many elements in common with vines coming from the Middle East such as Syrah, Marzemino and Lagrein. It is a vine suitable for the production of both young and aged wines.

Tasting

In the novello wines the predominant color is deep purplish red. In young and aged wines the prevalent color is intense ruby red with purple hues. The aroma is intense and complex. In the new wines emerge unmistakable and delicate wine and vegetable notes of pepper and tomato, while in young wines emerge floral notes of violet and predominant fruity notes of raspberry, wild berries. In aged wines emerge broken notes of almond, tobacco and licorice. The taste is intense and pleasant, characterized by an accentuated sapidity that is softened with aging. The wine produced is generally structured and moderately tannic.
