"Torilan" Merlot Cabernet Alto Adige DOC 2020 - Terlano

The name, Torilan, recalls the ancient name of Terlano. In this case it is a Bordeaux blend, i.e. the most classic of wine pairs, that of Merlot and Cabernet. An elegant and refined wine, this red wine from Cantina di Terlano matures for 7-10 months in large wooden barrels before the final blend, which in turn takes place about six months before bottling. Intense garnet red with ruby highlights, Torilan displays very clear aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry, typical of Merlot, combined with the noble spicy scent characteristic of Cabernet. Then black pepper and vanilla bean. In the mouth, however, it surprises above all for the perfect balance of all its components. One discovers, in fact, a beautiful symbiosis between the fruity, spicy and tannic flavour of the Cabernet, and the fullness and complexity of the Merlot. As for the pairing, the cellar experts have no doubts: grilled meat! But for lovers of stronger flavours, also medallions or venison stew. Try it, to believe!

Founded in 1893, the Cantina di Terlano is one of the most avant-garde wine cooperatives in the whole of Alto Adige. Its 143 current members cultivate 190 hectares of vineyards, producing a total annual output of around one and a half million bottles, divided into two lines, plus a few rarities of great oenological value. In the modern wine cellar, only DOC wines are produced, especially white wines, thanks to the new area created in 2009, where the wines have all the space they need to grow and develop to the full. From an architectural point of view, the Terlan Winery also deserves special mention. On the outside, part of the building has been covered with red porphyry, the typical rock of the area, while the roof of the winery has been greened and covered with vines, thus blending into the surrounding cultivated landscape. The wine archive of the cellar is unique in Italy with its 100,000 bottles from the 1955 vintage to the present day. However, the cellar also holds some ancient treasures: some bottles dating back to the year of its foundation!
