"A white with lots of sliced lemon and mineral character with hints of tropical fruit. Full body with a tangy acidity and a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold." Reviewed July 2013
"The grapes used to make this Chardonnay are grown at an elevation of over 1,000 feet ASL on well-drained, mineral-rich soils. The resulting balanced acidity and complex minerality make a wine of great fruit concentration and elegance.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine rests on the lees for six months.
"Terlano Chardonnay is pale straw-yellow in color. It has a fruity and intense bouquet with nuances of ripe bananas and tropical fruits. It is dry, medium-bodied, harmonious and very persistent, with elegant minerality and the ability to pair with many foods." - Distributor's Notes
About the Producer
"In Terlano, where the winemaking tradition dates back more than 2,000 years, mild, Mediterranean type microclimatic conditions impart unique characteristics to the wines. Located in Alto Adige's Dolomite Mountains, in the foothills of the Alps, Terlano's distinctive location and extraordinary terroir are the key to the development of these stunning wines. Situated in a sheltered hollow, Terlano benefits from an ideal south facing exposure. There, vineyard slopes ranging from 820-3,000 feet ASL provide perfect conditions to cultivate their many indigenous grapes. Vineyards composed of red porphyric rocks with high mineral content accumulate and retain the day's warmth, while the porous soil allows the water to drain, keeping the soil dry around the roots of the vines. To insure the highest standards of quality, Terlano compensates their growers for the quality of their grapes, not the quantity. And in the vineyards, emphasis has been placed on reducing yield in favor of producing more concentrated fruit. These factors combined with the cool evening temperatures contribute to the wines' enhanced quality.
"Wine Spectator's James Suckling writes, 'To say that an Italian cooperative winery produces some of the best white wines in its region, if not the whole of the country, may raise an eyebrow or two. But having recently blind-tasted the white wines of Cantina Terlano, from the Alto Adige region in Italy's northeast, I have no doubt that this is the case.'" - Distributor's Notes
