Created in 1981, Terre Alte is considered one of Italy's most prestigious white wines. The balanced blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon grapes, estate-grown at Rosazzo in the historic Terre Alte vineyards, yelds a superbly elegant wine with a profusion of intense fruit and flower aromas. A wine of outstanding structure, Terre Alte acquires a wonderfully complex bouquet of tertiary aromas with bottle aging.
The aromas of the Terre Alte are captivating, intense, mineral, biting and complex. The complex and intense aromas are perfectly integrated with notes of exotic fruit, acacia flowers, jasmine, white peach, marjoram, lily of the valley, iris, hawthorn, bergamot, vanilla sugar, starfruit, saffron, cardamom and sweet almond.
On the palate, the wine is youthful yet rich, complex, harmonious and savory; an intriguing aftertaste, rich and persistent, with hints of sage, vanilla, rosemary and wet stone.
