Coronica's Gran Teran is probably the best Teran of Istria. Wine made of 100% Teran grapes, made only in years when the grapes are of the highest quality. Result is a rich, well-balanced wine with good ageing potential.
On the nose you'll find aromas of red cherries, plum jam and dried Mediterranean herbs, while on the palate you'll also find some other darker fruits like blackberries and some smoky tobacco. The firm structure and well-rounded tannins are matched by fresh acidity giving the elegance to the wine.
Vinification takes place after careful grape sorting. The wine matures in wooden barrels of various capacities, as needed. Finally the wine is released to the market when it has reached optimal drinking quality.
