More terraspurtle from TheBloodyPulpit:

  1. Cobelli: This was a new winery for me from Winemongers. It is located on the slopes of Monte Corona in the Southern Trentino region, quite far South of Elisabetta Foradori in the Rotiliano Plans of Mezzolombardo. I was quite favorable impressed w/ this rendition of Teroldego & thought it near of the quality to the Foradori. Not quite as perfumed/fragrant & high-toned & structured as hers, but a good solid expression of Teroldego at a very fair price.

Cobelli is actually pretty close to Foradori. They are above the eastern side of the Piano Rotaliano, overlooking the valley. Probably 5 miles as the crow flies.

Thanks, Greg. Looks like I got bum info from GoogleMaps, which showed it quite further South. Good to know.
