"The 2015 Teroldego opens to a smooth array of aromas that includes blackberry and dried plum. There's some spice and dark leather at the back. However, the wine delivers a whole other set of sensations in the mouth. These are largely driven by the forceful acidity and bitterness of the wine's taste profile. This Teroldego really does awaken the palate, and great care should be taken when pairing this wine with food. I would think that fatty or cheese-heavy dishes would make a good contrast to the wine's biting acidity. 88." Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate, 28th Jul 2017.
