Brilliant pale yellow colour with green nuances. On the nose green apple and white peach combine with fine nuances of lemon balm and mint to create the typical aroma of the classic Terlano. On the palate the peach is very strong, too, lending the Terlano its lively but at the same time very mellow character. The multifaceted, well-structured flavour derives from an interplay of freshness and minerality and also has a wonderfully persistent finish.
"A wine of precision and nuance, the 2015 Terlaner Classico once again shows why this is one of Alto Adige's most compelling and delicious wines. The Pinot Blanc / Chardonnay / Sauvignon Blanc blend that has worked so well here for decades yields a white endowed with striking focus. White flowers, lemon peel, ripe orchard fruit, apricot pit, almond, mint and chamomile form a super-appealing fabric of aromas, flavours and textures. There is a lot to like here. The Terlan has a level of precision that none of these varieties show on their own. Then again, that is the magic of blends. " Antonio Galloni, Vinous 2016
