Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Terra d’Oro Teroldego is a beautiful, bold and striking wine. Incredibly dark in color, it is balanced by soft and enticing aromas of vanilla, crème brulee and dark fruit. This wine showcases powerful tannins with a focused core of dense pomegranate and cranberries, followed by a long, lingering finish with subtle hints of vanilla.
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. The winery’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.
Production Notes
The tanks were inoculated with a docile strain of yeast to keep the fermentation at a relatively cool, steady pace, and were punched down by hand four times daily. After gentle pressing and racking, the wine was aged in 30% new American and French oak barrels for 12 months.
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 Terra d’Oro 2015 Teroldego were destemmed, lightly crushed and fermented in half-ton open-top bins.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect complement to wild boar lasagna or elk burgers, the Terra d’Oro 2015 Teroldego is a stunning companion to virtually any smoked meat.
