About the winery
Villa Terlina, a 7-hectare estate in a single lot, is situated in the hilly area south-east of Agliano Terme, in the heart of Piedmont, a region famous for its great wines.
The geological upheaval of the Miocene Period has created a very special terroir, which is reflected in the characteristics of the wines. The marly-calcareous topsoil lies on a stratum of crystalline gypsum rock.
This land structure led to an excellent water balance and, at the same time, is the main reason for the uniqueness of Villa Terlina’s wines: well-structured, mineral, elegant and with a wide range of flavours and aromas.
The wines grown are exclusively autochthons: Barbera, Nebbiolo and Uvalino. The vineyards have a high density of planting and an average age of over 30 years.
The management is always logical and strictly ecological: traditional and biodynamic methods are used according to the needs of each single parcel.
As with the care taken in tending the vineyards, so we try to ensure that the wine mirrors the terroir, and vinification and refining are carried out to suit the nature of the harvest.
Humans interventions are reduced to the minimum, the wines are neither clarified nor filtered. (Source: www.villaterlina.it)
