Nusserhof Ty… Teroldego 2015Regular price $56.00 Save $-56.00
A wine made from a mere 10 rows of vines. Teroldego is a close relative of Lagrein and native to the Südtirol as well. The 10 rows of vines average 30 years old and yield very small amounts of wine (for example, only 700 bottles in 2012). The vines are organically farmed and harvested by hand. Fermentation is with native yeasts and up to 30% whole clusters; maceration is several weeks. Unlike Nusserhof's other reds, the Teroldego is aged in used Burgundy barriques instead of botti, but for a similar length as the others: at least 2.5 years in wood followed by years in bottle. The name "Ty..." is short for Tyroldego. Nusserhof opts for Vino Rosso classification for the wine and thus cannot name the variety or vintage outright on the label; the vintage is indicated as a lot number in fine print.
