Don Guerino Reserva Teroldego 2017

£15.00

Made from the native Italian Teroldego grape, this wine will appeal to lovers of chunky reds and those looking for something a little different for their summer/BBQ drinking.

The wine critics’ assessment:

‘Brazil comes to Trentino! Plum, damson and black cherry fruit with firm, sinewy tannins, crunchy acidity and good length. Fruit packed stuff.’ (88 points – Tim Atkin MW – Three Wine Men – October 2019)

‘Chewy black cherry, plum and blackberry is the name of the game. A touch of spice and earthiness. A fresh acidity and brightness of fruit keeps this full-bodied red easy drinking. Very good. I’d like BBQ ribs or steak, of course’. (Tom Surgey – Three Wine Men – October 2019)

Description

ABV: 13%

APPEARANCE:  Exceptionally deep, inky-purple colour

AROMAS: Dense dark brambly fruit, with hints of raspberry or redcurrant

TASTE:  A grape originally from NE Italy, here boasting many different flavours – ripe black cherry, licorice, traces of vanilla and even a touch of smokiness all apparent. Tannins still have a little bite, acidity is quite high and there is a bittersweet hint of almond on the finish – but beautifully smooth overall!

FOOD PAIRING: A perfect match for roast lamb, pork or BBQ beef

OVERALL:  Although seldom seen outside its native Italy, this varietal became our bestselling red when first introduced four years ago – and has been a firm favourite ever since
