Terlaner Classico-Half Bottle

  • Cantina Terlano
  • Trentino Alto-Adige, Italy

Method & Production

Manual harvest, gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. A slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats, ageing and maturation on fine yeast for 5 to 7 months partly in stainless steel tanks (80%) and partly in big wooden barrells (20%), blending one month before bottling.

Tasting notes

Brilliant pale yellow colour with green nuances. On the nose green apple and white peach combine with fine nuances of lemon balm and mint to create the typical aroma of the classic Terlano. On the palate the peach is very strong, too, lending the Terlano its lively but at the same time very mellow character. The multifaceted, well structured flavor derives from an interplay of freshness and minerality and also has a wonderfully persistent finish.

Food matching

A traditional regional choice with Terlano wine soup, raw white asparagus salad, typical dishes like pizza and pasta with tomato sauce or foccaccia with rosemary or penne all'arrabbiata; parmesan and fresh pecorino; also with South Tyrolean dishes like bacon dumplings or sausage with sauerkraut, and with turkey breast with root vegetables or a fine veal roast.
