Sangue di Drago Teroldego Rotaliano DOC
Signature among our family’s wines, it is produced in limited edition, and is a selection of only the best grapes of Teroldego from the Maso Donati vineyard, at the foot of Mezzocorona’s Castles. In this historic vineyard, vines are up to 90 years old, giving higher complexity, concentration and balance to the fruit.
According to the ancient legend Teroldego was born from the fertilizing drops of blood from a terrible dragon killed by a brave young knight. From the “sangue di drago” sprouted these beautiful vines.
Matured in wooden casks for at least 18 months, the wine develops its structure, body and balance. On the nose, scents of soft fruit give way to perfume of plum and dark chocolate at the same time persuasively spicy and sweet. In the mouth you immediately feel the soft, well integrated tannins, intense flavors of plum and dark chocolate. Structure provides the background perfectly balanced by the fruit and tannin. This is an exceptional wine showing its grace and power without being heavy on the palate.
It is considered one of the best expressions of Teroldego, the grape most identified with Trentino. There is a reason why this grape and this wine have continued to receive prizes, awards and the recognition of its excellence. A fulfilling wine at every sip.
