  4. Terminum Vendemmia Tardiva DOC

Terminum was the Roman name of Termeno, the village for which Tramin is named. This vendemmia tardiva is made from 100% late-harvested Gewürztraminer, the most renowned white varietal from Alto Adige. The must spends about 18 hours in contact with the skins in order to absorb all of the exotic aromas and flavors of Gewürztraminer.

Tasting Notes

This elegant dessert wine is a rich gold in color. On the nose, it combines notes of dried apricots and orange zest with hints of honey, rose petals cinnamon, and vanilla. On the palate, the flavors are balanced, rich, and sweet, but never cloying.

Food Pairing

Terminum is an excellent companion to dried fruits, blue-veined cheeses, and foie gras or with a slightly exotic dessert like ginger crème brulée.
