Winemaker Renato Salas Notes
Toreldego is from ancient times. History clear back from the 15th century. Native of Northern Italy, from the Trentino-Alto Adige region. It's parentage comes from Syrah. A very limited supply in the USA, it is our favorite on our table. First impression is to call it Super BOLD. Teroldego is a vigorous, powerful wine, with a dry, lightly tannic, snappy acidity, with lush full-bodied flavors. Succulent flavors of black-cherry, wild fruits and dark plums and notes of smoke, herbs and almonds. In its young versions, it is a concentration of fruity freshness. Very complex. Aged, it stands out for its fine texture and exceptional balance of fruit preserves and deep color. It has a darkest purple color of any grape I have ev ...more... er seen. The color of the wine is amazingly dark purple. All these qualities make this a versatile expressive food wine. Pairs with everything. Notes from the vineyard: Renato our wine maker say we have the Best and Most expensive grapes I have ever had the pleasure to produce wine with. Bill the owner tried to recruit him 5 times to make his wine. 5 times I was turned down. Finally I asked him to come to my vineyard once and if he said no once more, I would never ask again. Once he did, immediately turned and said, I want to make your wines. Best fruit I had ever seen. The rest is history.
