Terlano, Sauvignon Quarz 2018


Alto Adige

One of the best Italian Sauvignon, try it to believe. Terlano winery is an historical winery in Trentino Alto Adige, and focus its production on great wines wines typical from the region.

This is a very interesting and complex Sauvignon from Northern Italy. The nose is fresh displaying passion fruit, pineapple as well as creamy and stony notes. Excellent balance and structure on the palate. Medium-to-full-bodied yet crisp and lively. The finish is long with citrus and mineral notes.
Great experience! 95 points by James Suckling.

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige is characterized by the alpine peaks which soar for many thousands of feet above the Adige river Valley. The region follows the Adige river along its north-south course down from the Alps towards the plains, winding past various valleys and lakes.

Trentino-Alto Adige produces 8 DOCs and has a wide range of varieties: Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, and international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among the most widely used. The standard red Trentino Rosso is made from the Cabernet grapes, with Merlot also thrown in to make it a near-complete Bordeaux Blend. Its white Trentino Bianco counterpart has Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco as its base, with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller-Thurgau and Manzoni Bianco as permitted auxiliaries.

Grape varieties In addition to the dominant local varieties Schiava and Lagrein, there's more and more interest for Teroldego and Pinot Noir amongst red grapes, while the main white grape vaeriteis are: Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer and some very fine examples of Sauvignon and Pinot Bianco, with other indigenous grapes like Nosiola.
