Tasting Notes

Do not mistake this for an entry level Teroldego!

De Vescovi’s Teroldego Rotaliano ‘Classico’ is a perfect interpretation of this variety, sourced from 50-to-70 year old traditional pergola Trentina from top vineyard sites. Teroldego was traditionally trained on pergolas to keep it natural vigor in check, giving more elegance, and 10 months ageing makes it caressingly drinkable and soft-styled.

Dark ruby red in color with hints of violet. Aromas of dark berry fruit (blueberry) on the nose with floral and mineral hints which continue onto the palate. Well balanced with a pleasing taste of almond on the finish. Teroldego will pairs well with red meats, roasts, game, mushroom-based dishes and aged cheeses.
