Terlano Nova Domus, a wine to win over the hearts and minds of everyone in San Francisco. This wine is everything I love about Alto Adige. A classic blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon, aged 12 months on the lees in both large and small oak barrels. A touch of freshness from the Sauvignon- the only varietal in the blend vinified without malolactic fermentation- which balances the richness of the silky-smooth Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay.
Heady aromatics, minerality for days, and a crisp, clear, linear acidity that will make you shudder. This wine is a sensory experience. There is a luscious texture on the palate- unctuous and sultry. Mouth-coating and tingly with fresh mountain winds. You can almost hear the rush of the river and feel the shock of the cold alpine sunshine.
Terlano’s Nova Domus is also a perfect match for the smoked speck of Alto Adige, and any of the region’s delicious cheeses.
