Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2017 Terra d’Oro Teroldego is a beautiful, bold and striking wine. Deep purple in color, it is balanced by soft and enticing aromas of burnt crème brûlée, toasted coconut, blackberry, earth, plum, and dried oregano. This wine showcases a rich entry that leads to a dense midpalate and a long finish of velvety tannins and plum. A perfect complement to wild boar lasagna or elk burgers, the 2017 Terra d’Oro Teroldego is a stunning companion to virtually any smoked meat.
Vineyard Notes
Teroldego is a red Italian grape variety grown primarily in the northeastern Alto Adige DOC region of Italy. Often overlooked and esoteric in nature, Teroldego is enjoyed today thanks to dedicated growers and winemakers who champion this unique variety. Terra d’Oro’s Burke Ranch has rocky, shallow soil similar to the gravelly plain of Rotaliano Valley in the Swiss Alps. This type of terroir is ideal for growing Teroldego.
Winemaker Notes
The winemakers at Terra d’Oro appreciate the complexity and colossal characteristics of the Teroldego variety and take great care to minimize the extraction of harsh tannins. Grapes for the 2017 Terra d’Oro Teroldego were hand picked and destemmed, lightly crushed and fermented in half-ton, open-top bins. The tanks were inoculated and fermented at a relatively cool, steady pace and were punched down by hand daily. After gentle pressing and racking, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels, 25% new, for 13 months.
