Teroldego

VIGNETI DELLE DOLOMITI IGT

The Teroldego grape, native to Trentino and cultivated since ancient times, is extremely rich in polyphenols, and finds the sub-Mediterranean climate of South Tyrol perfect for its needs. The grapes, which are the source of the most characteristic Teroldego wine, ripen on the gentle slopes of the Avisio Hills around the Rotaliana Plain. La Vis Teroldego is deep ruby red in colour with an aroma of violets that develops notes of plum and small forest fruits. It is soft and rounded on the palate with a particularly spacious finish.
