The story of Cantina Endrizzi began in 1885. The philosophy of the owners, Paolo and Christine Endrici, is founded on basic principles: understanding that wine is the end result of a series of practices in which environmentally friendly farming plays a central part. With this in mind, the estate has banned the use of chemicals and has reduced the addition of sulphites to the wine. These are the reasons why Cantina Endrizzi's wines are so well known. Indeed, these sublime Italian wines stand out due to their unique character, portraying the terroir in which they grew and bearing the Endrizzi trademark.
Located in an enchanting place to the south of the Alps, Cantina Endrizzi is considered one of the oldest vineyards in Trentino and is situated between the warm Mediterranean and cool continental climates. The Pian Di Castello, Masetto and Kinderleit vineyards are all located near the village of San Michele all'Adige, in the heart of the Italian Adige region.
Teroldego Rotaliano Superiore Riserva 2018 stems from the Mezzocorona and Mezzolombardo vineyards. The vines are grown in a traditionally manner, on pergolas and rest on fertile gravel soil. The terroir benefits from a warm microclimate with a healthy difference between day-time and night-time temperatures.
The vinification and ageing
Following the manual harvest, during which the best grapes are selected, the grapes are taken to the cellar in order to begin a very precise vinification process. Firstly, the grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature for 10 days. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and ageing in barrels.
The colour is an intense ruby.
This wine harmoniously blends fruity fragrances (raspberry, plum) with subtle notes of chocolate.
A seductive wine expressing balanced tannins, character and length throughout the tasting experience.
