Benvenuti Teran 2012

One of the key Croatian red varieties, and the most important Istrian red variety, Teran holds a special place in our the history of the Benvenuti winery. This wine comes from the vineyards in Španjole, at 300 metres above sea level. It is fresh and complex at once. Teran has a harmonious structure and acidity that provides for lots of ageing potential. Teran 2012, was aged in oak for 24 months, following a 20-day maceration, with a limited production of 6,000 bottles.

The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.

Tasting Notes

Simply one of finest Teran wines. Macerated for 20 days, then aged in oak for 2 years before bottling, this is a serious Teran. Beuatiful ruby red and violet coulours in the glass. The aromas are a mix of dark fruits, with a hint of tobacco. The taste is full bodied, with dark fruit flavours predominant, pepper in the background, and tamed tannins due to the oak. The body is harmoious, with the 14.7% ABV not abvious in the mouth. Smooth cherry persists for a long finish.

A perfect match with red meat or grilled tuna steaks, roasted fish, istrian prosciutto, or simply enjoyed on it’s own with cheese.
