Teroldego Riserva D.O.C.

Teroldego is a local varietal of the North of Italy strictly “linked” with the very specific soil of the area where it is coming from: Piana Rotaliana. a flat area located 20 km north of Trento. This area is exactly between two rivers Adige - the second longest river in Italy after Po, and Noce a local smaller river. It is protected by mountains on all sides. The Dolomite Mountains bring cool air into the valley in summer and protect the vineyards against the cold in winter. The soil of the area is alluvial with an upper level of cultivable soil ( 50-80cm) and a sandy, pebbly stratified skeleton that witnesses recent floods. This soil is carachterized by great freshness and no water stagnation.
Teroldego Riserva is produced only in the best vintages from an accurate selection of manually harvested grapes of the best Piana Rotaliana vineyards, i.e. “Fron”, “Rauti”, “Catorzi” and “Sottodossi”. “Teroldego” seems to derive from “Tiroler Gold”, the name that indicated this wine at the Court of Vienna under the Austro-Hungarian empire. From this name came the “Tiroldico” and finally Teroldego. It has D.O.C. status since 18 February 1971.
