A wee BloodyPulpit:
- I’ve not been a big fan of the Terra d’Oro wines ever since SutterHome bought out Montevina yrs ago. They are pleasant enough, a bit on the dilute/boring side, varietally correct but just that. So I had pretty low expectations when I tried this wine. It speaks quietly of Teroldego varietal character and is fairly priced. But would prefer the basic Foradori Teroldego as being much more interesting.
