Native to Trentino, Lavis' Teroldego is a wine that enchants at first glance with its deep ruby red color. On the nose, it opens with a bouquet of violets that develops into notes of plum and small forest fruits. Soft and enveloping on the palate, it offers a long, juicy finish. Manual harvesting began in early October, followed by fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Aging takes place on the lees for about 5-6 months in fiberglass-reinforced concrete tanks, with a portion aged in previously used French oak barrels. Ideal for a candlelit romantic dinner or a gathering among friends, it pairs beautifully with red meats and aged cheeses.
