Teroldego Rotaliano 2015
Denominazione di Origine Controllata
38016 Mezzocorona (Trentino)
tasted January 24th, 2017
Forest fruits, a good deal of plum, chocolate and cinnamon. Maybe a bit pepper and some other spices. This one is leaning towards the classics without being a pastiche – and still remaining pretty fresh. Good job.
Sampled with Pasta al’ Avanzi.
The hard-working people in / at Mezzocorona have in time grown an imperium that stretches up to Sicily by now under the umbrella of Nosio S.p.A. Happily this has not effected their original Trentino portfolio which remains impressive in both quantity and quality. This is a good red, doing well with a decent Italian meal but not too bad on it’s own, too. Leftovers can just be so tasty 😉
