Blue Poles Teroldego 2012: Review

The teroldego grape is mostly associated with the red wines of Italy’s Alto Adige region between Venice and the the Austrian border. Blue Poles Teroldego 2012 is a nicely balanced wine with a clean nose of good intensity. At the core of the flavours are black fruits such a blackcurrant and blackberry. As the wine opened out with time I got a hint of red plum and a lovely bit of white pepper too. There was a hint of cigar/cedar too which I really liked. Purchased and tasted on 25/2/2021 this bottle was available retail with nine years ageing present. Price is about AUD 30 which given the drinkability and bottle age.

14.0% alcohol by volume.
