"Hats off to the team at Cantina Terlano for this stunning set of new releases."- Monica Larner (Wine Advocate
Located in the Dolomite Mountains in the foothills of the Alps, Terlano's location and terroir are key to the development of their stunning, world-renowned wines. Since 1893, Cantina Terlano has grown into one of the leading wine growers' cooperatives in the Alto Adige region of northeastern Italy. With a current membership of 143 growers farming a total area of 165 hectares, Terlano ensures the highest standards of quality by compensating growers for the quality of their grapes not the quantity. Their wines are famous for their impressive depth and complexity.
"The 2017 Alto Adige Terlano Riserva Nova Domus is a blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc that perfectly embodies the house style and philosophy. The wine is soft, rich, deep and profound with a medley of stone fruit, peach, melon and citrus aromas that segue to crushed stone, light spice, saffron and honey. Partial malolactic fermentation in oak and sur lie aging adds to the creamy richness and subtle structure conferred by this true beauty of the Italian Dolomites. Some 33,000 bottles were released." 95 points - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, Sep 2020)
