Method & Production

The Rarity 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

Terlano’s 2008 rarity wine has an impressive freshness and a wealth of aromas, with new components revealed at every tasting, including herbal notes of camomile, lemon balm and lovage together with a hint of apricot. The multifaceted bouquet also displays aromas of bread crust and yeast bun paired with flint. The wine is smooth and powerful on the palate, with a crisp and fresh acid backbone that leaves a both youthful and delicate impression and strikes a fine balance with the mineral components. The finish is elegant and silky, but also enormously deep and firm.

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.
