Pinot Bianco Raritá

  • Cantina Terlano
  • Trentino Alto-Adige, Italy

Method & Production

The Rarita range offers special editions of mature white wines that have been left to age on the lees in steel pressure tanks for at least ten years. 


Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks with partial malolactic fermentation (50%) and aging on the lees in big wooden barrels for 12 months; further aging on the lees in steel pressure tanks without filtering or fining.

Tasting notes

Intensive light straw yellow with delicate greenish reflections. Initial impressions are a wine of remarkable freshness with a wealth of aromas, including herbal notes of camomile, apricot, honey and orange blossom. The multifaceted bouquet also displays aromas of pastry paired with flint. The wine is rich and powerful but with a  compact denisty showing its potential for longevity. Initially creamy and fruity, it pinches together on the finish to highlight a lean and long finish with mineral tones.


 

Food matching

Poached lobster and roasted scallops, also in combination with taglierini with butter and white truffles, and with beef carpaccio with fresh Alba truffles or a veal sirloin steak.
