Straw yellow in colour with green hues. The aroma is delicate but intense, reminiscent of hawthorn and elderflower. Dry and fresh with good body thanks to the barrique ageing, the wine is harmonious with lingering flavours of almonds on the finish.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Terrapieno was created by a group of friends in Verona who have worked together for over 20 years. Matt Thomson makes the wines while Luca Degani of Cantina Valpantena and Gaetano Tobin of Cantina Monteforte provide the grapes from some of their best sites. 'We all make a lot of very good wine in Verona, but Terrapieno is an opportunity for us to make wines from single sites that represent the best of what Verona can do,' explains Matt Thomson.
Terrapieno means 'full earth'. It is a type of construction used in northeastern Italy, an accumulation of earth to reinforce walls and fortifications. The Castello di Montorio in the Valpantena is a fine example.
