Terroir: Dr Ian D’Agata (2014, p.446) describes the Campo Rotaliano as the ‘recognized, historic grand cru [zone] for Teroldego, a sandy–gravelly plain borne of the alluvial deposits of the Noce Stream and Adige River, found between San Michele all’Adige, Mezzocorona, and Mezzolombardo at about 230 metres [755 feet] above sea level. Campo Rotaliano is one of Italy’s very few documented grands crus related to a specific grape variety.’
Wine style: ‘Deep-coloured, leafy, blackberry-flavoured,’ (Oz Clarke: 2015, p.259).
