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)
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.
This dozen contains 2 bottles from each of six different producers in several regions. The varieties included are Alicante Bouschet, Carmenere, Lagrein, Montepulciano and Sangiovese, plus a red blend from Heathcote containing Nero d’Avola, Sangiovese, Lagrein, Schioppettino & a little Lambrusco Maestro.
So far only a few Aussie producers have shown interest in this variety. Michelini in the Alpine Valleys were the first to use this variety and they have had show success with a full bodied rich red wine.
As this variety is used by just a few producers it is included in my book Rare Ozzies.
