Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.2%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Everything about Teroldego is deep and dark. The stains on the bins the fruit it picked into and fermented in. The stains on our hands as we work with the fermenting must. The barrels after the wine is aged. The wine in glass is the deepest purple around. Aromas start dark, too, with freshly-picked blackberries and black raspberries. A whiff of lavender and, maybe, a bit of thyme follow. Rich blackberry flavors lead followed by black figs and a sprinkle of black pepper. There's plenty of tannin but it's smooth and supple and only getting more so as the wine ages. The finish hints of minerality—nice, but not too intense.
