"Super-concentrated and intense, this starts with a very deep color and aromas like espresso and smoked meat. Flavors suggest black cherry and cranberry shaded with spices. An earthy, savory thread runs through all the dark fruit and spices, lingering on the finish." *Editor's Choice"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Tasting Notes: The 2014 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. Vineyard: 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. Food Pairing: A perfect complement to wild boar lasagna or elk burgers, the 2016 Terra d’Oro Teroldego is a stunning companion to virtually any smoked meat.
