Technische uitleg van Castelvecchio ;
Known since Roman times with the name of Pucinum, the Terrano is considered a wine that is good for the health because of its iron content. It stands out for the exuberance of its malic acidity, the wild fragrances of raspberry and blackberry and the typical intense ruby red colour, with shades of violet, for the fact that it is bottled six to eight months after harvest, which allows it to express all of its typical traits. The limited tannin content and moderate alcohol content, albeit with considerable acidity, make it an averagely well-structured wine, ideal with cold cuts and typical dishes of the Karst plateau. If drunk young, this wine can also accompany fish with a high content in fat, especially eel.
After 9 months in stainless steal containers (without malolactic fermentation), the wine remains other 3 months in bottles before its sale starts.
Color: Intense ruby red when young with violet rims; by maturing the colour tones down. Smell: Wild scents of black-berry, bilberry, wild-cherry and plums. Taste: Rather acid (for the presence of the malic acid in Terrano young) a bit metallic, exuberant and lively.
The limited tannins and the moderate alcohol content, even if with a steady acidity, make of Terrano a wine that has an average ideal structure, appropriate for delicatessen and salted meat. When young, this wine is a perfect accompaniment to fat fishes such as eels.We suggest to serve it at 16-18°C.
7/10 years when the bottle is kept properly.
