Terrano (2017)

Castelvecchio

  • Terrano belongs to the family of Refosco d'Istria, a red varietal native to Friuli. Terrano is a typical grape of the Carso region, which has always produced this varietal with “wild” notes and a unique personality! This wine can be aged for 7-10 years when the bottle is kept properly.
  • Typology: Red Wine
    Production area: Carso
    Grape variety: 100% Terrano
    Fermentation and refinery: After 9 months in stainless steel containers (without malolactic fermentation), the wine remains other 3 months in bottles before its sale starts.
    Alcohol content: 12.0% vol.
    Tasting notes: Intense ruby red color when young, with violet undertones; by maturing, the color tones down. Wild scents of black-berry, bilberry, wild-cherry and plums. Rather acidic (from the presence of malic acid), exuberant and lively.
    Temperature for Serving: 16-18 °C
    Serving Suggestions: The limited tannins and the moderate alcohol content, even if with a steady acidity, make this Terrano appropriate for delicatessen and salted meat. When young, this wine is a perfect accompaniment to fish.
