Vigne delle Dolomiti Teroldego IGT “Peterle” 2014 – Baldessariby Valentino Minotti
ORGANOLEPTIC EXAM: intense red wine, tenacious but elegant; wild power of perfumes, austere stone profile, warm composed of wood, with fascinating purple hues of dark velvet.
Peterle Baldessari is a Teroldego that was previously cultivated on the sunny peaks of Povo. These grapes are born on the hot stone of the east, ripen exuberantly on the dry rock of autumn, and become a tenacious but elegant red, wild power of perfumes, austere stone profile. It is a wine of character, made of passion and ability to stand out; agile, stubborn, vibrant, and thick, with the scents of autumn. His first vinification took place in 2012. The Peterle Baldessari is vinified with the skins, without temperature control. The permanence of the new wine under the marc until the alcoholic fermentation is complete. First decanting and then in small wooden barrels where it naturally goes to malolactic fermentation.
“… I find it difficult to describe the project by Peterle and Marien in a few lines, these two wines are wines, people, dreams, feelings, projects, affections, bonds, incazzature, beliefs and God only knows what else … If you believe that may be good, I told them this way: past and future, earth and sky … it is important that our wines are an authentic and respectful expression of our land, that land that has been left to us and that we must leave clean, fertile, proud of our children, because it is an opportunity for choice, because it is an opportunity, because it is furnished with intimate richness and sublime concreteness of belonging to a story, a sky, a shadow in memories “MICHELA BALDESSARI
The grapes to produce Baldessari wine have thick and crunchy skins, capable of giving intense and marked aromas to the wines. The roots, not irrigated, carry very concentrated elements and nutrients from the soil that intensify the traces of the Trentino earth. This is why the wines produced by the Azienda Agricola Baldessari have a dense aroma, which reflects the characteristics of our territory. Wines capable of transmitting, as was the dream of the brothers Giuseppe and Marco Baldessari, essences of the sun, sky, woods, rain and ripe fruit. In short, poetry and land capable of giving life to unique products.
“Baldessari wine is produced around the land surrounding the city of Trento and is managed according to the organic farming method for the antiparasitic defense we resort to the use of copper hydroxide and wettable sulfur at limited doses and defined for each treatment on the basis of climatic conditions in order to avoid damage to the pedofauna and accumulation in the soil, enological adjuvants and the use of sulfur dioxide. “- Michela Baldessari
