    "Terlaner I" Grande Cuvée Alto Adige DOC 2017

    Terlaner I (pronounced Primo) Grande Cuvée is the name of the white flagship of Cantina Terlano. In the past few years, the winery has made a name for itself worldwide with its long-lived, mineral white wines. Even after years, the wines present themselves in top freshness and with great complexity. With this long white wine history, there is now, since vintage 2011, a wine in which the essence of Terlan is expressed in an even more focused way. In Terlaner I Grande Cuvée, the grape varieties Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon from the Winkl, Kreuth and Vorberg vineyards are united to a masterpiece, which, due to its limitation and exclusivity, will only be available at hand-picked retailers and in selected top restaurants.

    Brilliant straw yellow. Rich and complex on the nose with aromas of citrus, white pepper and herbs and a delicate smoky note. Remarkable structure and refined texture, which give it finesse, elegance and a distinctive character. The exceptionally long and salty finish is endlessly memorable as an expression of a mineral terroir unique in the world. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Brilliant straw yellow with subtle green. Opens with subtle smoky notes, after cool stones, then tree-fresh apple, some apricot and pineapple to it. Starts off terrific on the palate, lots of crisp mirabelle fruit, some banana, very deep, saline and with a long finish, a long distance runner." Falstaff

    "The 2017 Terlaner Grande Cuvée Primo is rich and seductive from the first tilt of the glass. It displays a mix of roasted hazelnut, baked apple and dried peaches, as it gains further complexities through evolving notes of smoky minerals, chamomile and hints of honeysuckle. The textural depths on the palate are otherworldly, seemingly weighty yet precise, enveloping all it touches in velvety waves of ripe stone fruits and sweet spice, as juicy acids sneak in, both framing and balancing the wine. The finish is remarkably long yet fresh, teeming with energy while also showing hints of vanilla and toasty oak. The Terlano wines have a track record for evolving beautifully in the cellar." Vinous

    "Cooked-apple, clove, light toffee and smoked-wood aromas follow through to a full body with layers of fruit and nice phenolics that give it a creamy, almost chewy structure. Flavorful and intense. Smoky at the end with licorice and fennel-seed undertones." James Suckling

    "Magnificent graceful mix of seasoned oak, rich fruit and rosemary scents. Luscious ripe and intense green fruited palate with a kaleidoscope of mineral, floral and herbal notes; poised, rich and defined by glorious underpinning acidity." Decanter
