Story: Until recent times Teroldego was found exclusively in the Trentino region of Italy. It has a long, fascinating and well-documented history. Now that we have managed to pry a few cuttings from the hands of passionate Trentino producers, the 'Lucky Country' seems a likely place for this variety to flourish like the many talented Italian immigrants that have come before it.
Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.
Nose: The nose offers appealing aromas of sweet plums and dried herbs.
Palate: The palate is smooth with rich red berry flavours and tight, drying tannins.
Pairing: Try with soft shell blue swimmer crab in a tamarind sauce.
Cellaring: Drink now or to 2025
