2012 Cantina Terlan "Classico" Terlano (Previously $18.00)

SKU #1139620 93 points James Suckling

 This is a fresh and clean white with pear, green apple and lime character. Full body, tangy acidity and a lemon-lime undertone. Very minerally. Drink now, But will age a long time. Not to be missed.  (7/ 2014)

K&L Notes

A blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and it was one of the first wines that Cantina Terlan made. Always a staff favorite, this entices with aromas of tart green apple, lemon oil and basil. On the palate it's more stone fruit driven. Complex, with great structure and a lingering hint of minerality.

This is an interesting blend of grapes (pinot bianco, chardonnay, sauv blanc) and the combination creates a lovely balance of acidity and fruit. It's round and rich, but with great zippy acid on the finish. A fantastic food wine and a flavor that's familiar, yet new and exciting. Try it out if you like almost any kind of wine

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
