Details of wine

Known since Roman times with the name of Pucinum, the Terrano is considered a wine that is good for the health because of its iron content. It stands out for the exuberance of its malic acidity, the wild fragrances of raspberry and blackberry and the typical intense ruby red colour, with shades of violet, for the fact that it is bottled six to eight months after harvest, which allows it to express all of its typical traits. The limited tannin content and moderate alcohol content, albeit with considerable acidity, make it an averagely well-structured wine, ideal with cold cuts and typical dishes of the Karst plateau. If drunk young, this wine can also accompany fish with a high content in fat, especially eel.

Color

Rosso rubino intenso con orli violacei.

Smell

Fragranze selvatiche di more, mirtillo, susino e marasca.

Taste

Acidulo (molto accentuato per la presenza dell'acido malico) un po' metallico, esuberante e vivace.

Pairings

Il limitato contenuto tannico e la gradazione moderata, pur con acidità sostenuta, ne fanno un vino di struttura media ideale con i salumi e con piatti tipici del Carso. Da giovane questo vino si accompagna bene con i pesci grassi, in special modo l'anguilla.

The Carso region is a territory sometimes known only for the sad and bloody historical events of the First World War. However, it has always been a territory dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards, olives and first fruits of the seasons due to the climate peculiarities of this plateau. Testimony to this natural richness is the Villa Veneta “Della Torre Hohenlohe”, built in the late 1700s. This historical Villa was used for holiday and entertainment and it is located in a beautiful agricultural propriety. In fact, the “Villa Veneta system” associated the practical agricultural function with the leisure and recreation function. In historical maps you can notice the presence of gardens, olive trees and vineyards. The Villa was owned by the Della Torre Hofer Valsassina dynasty until 1849, then passed to the family of the Hohenlohe Waldenburg princes. Since the 80’s the Terraneo Family followed, with far-sightedness and passion, this beautiful project of farming-agricultural Villa. They are enhancing the Carso territory by producing wines of great character and oil.
