Teran Poletti is an old Istrian autochtonous grape variety, planted in 1982, on the location Vala. As a young wine it is characterized by a dark ruby red colour, with its hues towards purple. Its aroma is dominated by red berry fruits: mainly black cherry. This wine is produced by using maceration within at least 15 days and afterwards it matures for at least a year in big oak barrels, by which this wine loses its bitterness and becomes soft, robust and full-bodied.
To be paired with: Istrian prosciutto, sausages and ombolo (pork fillet).
Poletti Wine, as an agricultural family estate, is located in an Istrian village Marcovac, near Višnjan. When Peter-Piero Poletti took over the estate in the late `90s, he winded up the vineyards and increased the capacity of wine cellar. Nowadays, the estate has 7 acres of vineyards and produces 6 grape varieties: Istrian Malmazy – Istrian Malvazija, Chardonnay, Teran, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Red Rose Muscat.
