2017 Terlano 'Nova Domus' Riserva White Blend Alto Adige
Winemaker Notes: This wine is light straw in color with golden highlights and wafting aromas of apricot, tropical fruits and clove. Multi-layered and harmonious, it unfurls honeyed mango, pineapple and vanilla swirls pierced by an intense mineral stream.
Very nice with boiled lobster, baked brie, seared scallops, escargot encroute, creamy wild mushrooms, grilled shellfish and bouillabaisse.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Alto Adige Terlano Riserva Nova Domus is a blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc that perfectly embodies the house style and philosophy. The wine is soft, rich, deep and profound with a medley of stone fruit, peach, melon and citrus aromas that segue to crushed stone, light spice, saffron and honey. Partial malolactic fermentation in oak and sur lie aging adds to the creamy richness and subtle structure conferred by this true beauty of the Italian Dolomites."
Decanter - "Terlano is the prototype of the area’s white blends. Mineral-toned fruit with pinpoint acidity and style."
James Suckling - "This is always a complex blend of pinot bianco, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. It delivers cooked-apple, mineral and peach flavors with some natural ash and smokiness. It’s medium-to full-bodied with an oily undertone. Delicious."
