Venezia Giulia Terrano 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2017 Terrano has a wild and animalistic personality. Dark musky blackberry, earthy minerals, white pepper and savory herbs come together to form a beguiling display. It’s slim in texture but makes up for it with a zesty mix of tart red and black berries, strewn with salty minerals and exotic spice. A twang of tart citrus adds lift as grippy tannins settle in, all under an air of pretty violet flowers. This is best enjoyed at the dinner table, especially in its youthful state and with all of that nervous energy. That said, it’s a beautiful expression of Terrano. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)

The Game Cuvée Rouge Red Blend

It’s an excellent Istrian blend of five common varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Terrano) from a great wine maker, rich in taste and flavour, reasonably priced. Try it if you get the chance. — 3 years ago

El Terrano


A great bargain from Trader Joe’s. Lots of black currant, blackberry, and dark plum fruit. A little barnyard funk makes it interesting. Acidity is medium strong and a little hot. Not strongly tannic, though. — 3 years ago


Teran Venezia Giulia Terrano 2016

Delectable Wine

The 2016 Teran is dark and wild, making me think more of the Northern Rhône than Friuli, with a display of crushed stone, white pepper, blackberries and violets. It’s silky yet lifted, riding a wiry frame of acids and salty minerals, as notes of black currant and savory spice saturate throughout. Fine tannins come in late, along with a rush of sour citrus and purple inner florals. It’s a bit intimidating in this youthful state, yet the Zidarich Teran is full of potential.

Carso Terrano 2017

Rouge très foncé, violacé. Nez discret. Acidité étonnante pour la région, proche d'un vin plus nordique, avec un corps agile. Tanins légers. Petits fruits rouges frais. — 2 years ago
