Teroldego Sympatico

A little more on my Mondovino wine film fest companion, Cantina Rotaliana di Mezzolombardo Teroldego Rotaliano, 2003 ($10)

This tasty-fruity little number comes from the Trentino-Alto Adige region of northern Italy.  It's made from the native Italian grape, Teroldego, which is possible related to the Marzemino grape.  Marzemino is of mysterious origin - either from Austria or Greece.

  • Deep ruby-indigo in color, semi-opaque; with a thin pinkish rim
  • Pungent scents of blackberry and pepper, with a hint of tar (it reminded me a little of an Aussie Shiraz)
  • Light weight in the mouth with fresh, crisp flavors of blackberry and raspberry.  Slight tannins and a simple finish

***.5 (3.5 stars out of 5)

I enjoyed this wine for two reasons:  1) It's simple & fruity - a fine casual wine; and 2) It's got some structure - meaning acidity balanced with acid and complimentary tannins.  Unlike other cheap reds, it actually does something in the mouth rather than lay there all heavy and flabby-like.

Try it with pizza, pasta, pork, or prosciutto!

Buy Viagra

I've tasted this wine an it's perfect I disagree with the person who said this wine is simple because its flavor is one of the best in the world, even more because this wine is from Italy.

This wine is so tasty I used to drunk it with a friend when I live in France and it is perfect to add into a important dinner.
