Teroldego wine variety
Teroldego is a red wine grape variety from the Trentino
region in North Eastern Italy.
According to Oz Clarke in his Grapes and Wines Book
, Teroldego has similarities to Shiraz, Lagrein and Marzimino.
Teroldego is another of those varieties that are frequently allowed to overcrop thus producing large volumes of fairly ordinary wine.
Those producers who take the variety seriously though have shown that it does produce some very interesting wines- deep, rich and well structured.
"Savoury balanced with sweet berry flavours, dark distinctive tar finish"
