Our sixth vintage of this rather rare northern Italian varietal (which originates in Trentino/Alto-Adige) shows a consistent character vintage to vintage: deep black purple color, supple texture, and intriguing aromas of blackberry and old rose. Its flavors tend toward black fruit: canned blueberry, blackberry, pomegranate syrup and a hint of Australian licorice at the end. This ‘13 has a very Italian savory note as well. The lingering finish trails off with cassis and dark plum. Amphora is one of perhaps only ten wineries in California to produce a varietal Teroldego wine, but given its alluring character, we expect to see more in future years.
