Lezèr Teroldeco

Lezèr Teroldeco 2017

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyTheo Zierock is Elisabetta Foradori's son, and the scion of the Lezèr wines, experimental vin de soif in the same vein as his naturalist / biodynamic championing mother. The project came to be when a hailstorm severely damaged the grapes and Theo decided to try and make something of it. This is teroldego, fermented native in ten parts split between cement, wood, steel, and amphora, before four months on lees in cement. This charmer entices with young plum, wild raspberry blossoms on a lithe palate, with a whisper of tannins and a giant modicum of white pepper spicing. To be enjoyed now, with a chill. A lovely and worthwhile experiment.Tasted: 02 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 private wine shops Producer: ForadoriDistributors: Sedimentary Wines
