$41.99

This wine captures the mountain freshness of the region and the minerality of the stony soils. “A composition of Terlano’s three most traditional white varieties, Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon, this old Cuvée, which was one of the wines produced when the winery was founded, is an extremely complex wine. Pinot Bianco, the main variety used in the Cuvée provides the freshness and a good acid structure, while Chardonnay delivers a pleasing warmth and mellowness and Sauvignon Blanc adds the fine aromatic character.” This wine is shows excellent fruit and creaminess with a long very pure finish.

Wine description

Color: brilliant pale yellow with green nuances
Smell: Green apple and white peach combine with fine nuances of lemon balm and mint to create the typical aroma of the classic Terlano.
Taste: Peach is very strong on the palate, too, lending the Terlano its lively character. The multifaceted, well structured flavor derives from an interplay of freshness and minerality and also has a wonderfully persistent finish.

Vintage

The year began with a very dry and mild winter. A cool spring slightly delayed vine budding, but the normal growth cycle was restored by a very warm and sunny May. The first vines flowered on the earliest sites in the middle of the month, and the fine weather then led to a rapid flowering process. On the higher sites, flowering was finished by the beginning of June. Due to an exceptionally hot and dry summer, there were few problems with fungal attack, but the lack of rainfall pushed the vines to their limits in some cases. Rainfall and thunderstorms at the end of July and beginning of August put an end to the lack of water, thus averting drought stress and related quality problems and generating the comforting prospect of an early harvest. Harvesting began on August 24 on the earliest sites. The result was fully ripe and extremely healthy grapes with slightly reduced levels of acidity.
