Teran in the Trapan wine station flows from the tap, is in the bloodstream of the winemaker and so it’s the only ingredient of this monovarietal sparkler. Melted raspberry jelly candy mixed with smoked salmon is what you see in the glass.
Fragrant raspberries vinosity wrapped in violet petals, which dominate the brioche and make this sparkling aperitifly dominant. Teranic blood, without sweat, and with tears of salinity, caress the mouth and sings in a hedonistic sunset of old Istrian, teran varietal, Mediterranean, cheerful wine.
