Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2009 Terre Alte is a blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon. Ripe, juicy peaches, apricots, flowers and subtle hints of French oak are some of the notes that flow from this rich, textured white. The Terre Alte is decidely generous in 2009, but also quite nicely balanced. A plush, harmonious finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. ” (Feb 2012)
Created in 1981, Terre Alte is considered one of Italy's most prestigious white wines. The balanced blend of Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon grapes, estate-grown at Rosazzo in the historic Terre Alte vineyards, yelds a superbly elegant wine with a profusion of intense fruit and flower aromas. A wine of outstanding structure, Terre Alte acquires a wonderfully complex bouquet of tertiary aromas with bottle aging.
