Triangolo 2016 of Terre Gaie’s prestige line is a single identity in a blend of grapes of character and temperament. The place of origin is the Euganean Hills characterized by non-heterogeneous shapes and heights and basaltic rocks of volcanic origin soil and subsoil. Hundreds of almost isolated reliefs in the Venetian plain make this specific territory an ideal place for vines and viticulture, incredibly hospitable for international varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet. Triangolo is a blend of sensations modeled on a production strategy aimed at tension, freshness and quality.
This wine is an Euganean red that is fixed in an emotional context where the desire to drink is imposed with simplicity. Evidently complex, it has a broad, ethereal nose, an echo of ripe fruit, cherries, coffee and undergrowth. A delicate vinosity recalls the fermenting vat while the dry, horizontal mouth, with velvety tannins stretches towards a finish with a fruity tone. An exceptional vintage for persistence and aging potential.
We tasted it with a second dish of veal with tuna sauce.
