Teroldego Wine Variety
Teroldego is a red wine grape variety from the Trentino region in North Eastern Italy.
Teroldego has its own DOC in Trentino, namely Teroldego Rotoliano. Both red and rose wines are made under this appellation. (If you are not familiar with Italian wine regions perhaps you should consider buying this Wine Map of Italy)
DNA Analysis has shown that this variety is related to Shiraz, Marzemino and Lagrein.
Teroldego is known for producing well structured, deeply coloured red wines with black cherry flavours. If the variety is allowed to overcrop in the vineyard then the wines are fairly nondescript as you will find if you try cheaper versions.
