Reviews and Ratings

Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a fresh, medium-bodied, fruity red from the DOC of Teroldego Rotaliano in Italy's northern Trentino Alto Adige. The grape also bears the name teroldego. The wine has a deep-ruby colour with a slight purple hue, which is almost deceiving as it has light, silky tannins, and the flavours lean more toward red fruit. The aromas are of wild raspberry and strawberry, plum, and pomegranate, tinged with spice (white pepper, nutmeg) and menthol. Some delicate notes of tobacco, leather, and forest floor are developing. It took a few minutes to open up. This wine could benefit from a light chill (especially in the summer), to accentuate the vibrant acidity and berry fruit. Not complex or intense by any means, but certainly fresh and tasty. There is probably no point ageing this further (and it may have been better a year or two back), as the fruit is the heart of this wine, and it will only fade now.
