Our Notes: Teran had the potential to be incredibly tart with harsh acidity. Moreno has tamed this grape with a barrique treatment and found an equally incredible balance of fruit, spice, acid and texture. Often staining the glass with an ominous inky color, the body is counter intuitively delicate and refined with surprisingly low alcohol. Best served after decanting, locals pair with gamey foul, smoked meat, and spicy lamb. This is one of the most captivating Terans produced in Istria and paves the way for how this grape can age and evolve.

91 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine: “Moreno Coronica has been growing grapes since 1992, working in the bright red terra rosa soils just inland from the Adriatic. While he specializes in malvasia, teran is his flagship red, a dark, ripe mouthful of blueberry and sour cherry flavor. The oak flavors that initially weigh on the wine lift off with time in the glass, allowing a mouthwatering freshness to emerge with the grape's tarter notes. And teran's sometimes terrifying tannins? Here they are as fine as the red dust that flies up from a drive through the vineyards, their ferrous flavor ready to match a rare steak.
