Teroldego

expression

Teroldego takes its name from its traditional method of cultivation, trained on a system of “tirelle” or wire harnesses, an explanation that's more likely, if less pretty, than its legendary association with German dialect for gold of the Tirol. It has recently been discovered to be a full sibling of the Dureza variety from France, which is one of the parents of Syrah

origin and history

The wine Teroldego Rotaliano, which is made with this grape in Trentino, has had DOC status since 18 February 1971.
