First time ever we’ve blogged about a Teroldego. Probably have had some in one of our many trips to Italy but don’t recall.
Overripe plum (in a juicy, appetizing sense), un-hulled strawberries (in a not so perfect balance sense), a smoky medicinal top note (in an interesting and provocative sense) and a striking acidity on the finish (in a palate cleansing red meat sense). We found it exceptionally good drinking in that curious unusual out of the ordinary way you do when testing a new varietal. But, honestly, we didn’t think it was quite as great as the generous lauds its picked up globally. Maybe one of the most interesting and unusual reds readily available at BC Liquor? Enormously food friendly; not your go-to sipper.
Price: $34 at BCL before the extras. And kudos to BCL for having it on the shelves in the first place.
Market Liquidity: Delectable in a deer in the headlights sort of way.
