Teroldego is a red-wine grape grown in the Trentino wine region of northern Italy. There is just one DOC for Teroldego wines in its native Italy, this variety is hardly cultivated anywhere else in the world. Teroldego’s home is the area just north of Trento, between the mountains of Piana Rotaliana. This variety produces intense deeply pigmented red wines with an intensely fruity characteristic, a style that has become something of an icon for Trentino’s wine industry.

Vigilius harvests their grapes the first week of October and uses open wooden vats with ambient yeasts for fermentation. Maceration on the skins then lasts for 10 with 60% of the wine maturing in Slavonia oak casks and the other 40% in new French oak casks. After natural decanting in stainless steel tanks, the wine is bottled, unfiltered and the result is a fantastic, unique wine. The color is a rich inky purple with lively acidity and a zesty/spicy bouquet reminiscent of crushed black currants intermixed with herbal nuances and stony minerality. This robust wine pairs well with red meats and hearty cheese pastas.
