Striking depth and nuance from the beautifully ripe fruit. Succulent peach and apricot notes open up first, followed by an expressive melange of dried flowers, mint, herbs and candied lemon peel. Stunning!

Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in big oak barrels (30 hl); malolactic fermentation and aging on the lees in traditional wooden barrels for 12 months.

Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950s and 1960s, which rank amongst the greatest white wines of the world, were made here. Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Terlano has approximately 100 members farming about 150 hectares and is unashamedly a quality focussed co-operative.
