It has a framework of attractive, mature and fine tannins that allow the wine to be enjoyed on release or over a short term cellaring period.

Teroldego is a grape variety indigenous to the valleys of Trentino. Related to several local red grape varieties as well as to Shiraz, it is a premium variety appreciated for its capacity to give deeply coloured, lively flavoursome wines with pleasant tannins. 

The Riserva wines produced by the Mezzacorona co-operative are produced using only the best fruit from good vintages. The grapes are grown exclusively in Piana Rotaliana vineyards, their native home. 

The grapes are pressed without stems and macerated on the skins. After fermentation the wine is transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months and then matures for a further 12 months before bottling. 

Nose: Dark fruits on the nose.

Palate: On the palate it is fresh and elegant, full bodied, displaying subtle notes of barrel ageing. This dark red wine has very attractive aromas of ripe fruit and berries

Pairings: Excellent with beef, pasta, lamb or even deer.

Vegan Friendly.

94 pts - Kim Brebach (BWU20)

Mezzacorona is a large co-op in Trentino-Adige at the foot of the Alps in northern Italy, which features individual wineries that belong to the co-op. Teroldego is a variety indigenous to this area. The name translates to ‘the little sour one.’ The impenetrable colour suggests a massive red, but it’s medium bodied. There are some sour cherries on the nose and on the palate, along with dark berries, black pepper and earthy notes. Intriguing wine that makes a pleasant change.

93 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

Teroldego is hardly a household name in the world of wine, especially outside northern Italy, where it once seemed destined for oblivion. It was, fortunately, rescued mainly by the efforts of a single producer and now we have a number of the better local makers offering fine examples of this impressive variety from some of the most scenic vineyards on the planet. In DNA terms, it is considered to be the ‘uncle’ of Shiraz and has started to attract a little attention from Aussie producers. This is a very fine example for anyone keen to explore what this variety offers. Maroon hue, there is some serious concentration and power found here. We have flavours of black cherries, smoked meats, animal skins, blackcurrants and chocolate. A seductive if somewhat firm texture, through to powdery tannins which provide some serious grip. Young now, and while it is enjoyable, expect it to develop more over the next eight years.
