Terralsole – “land toward the sun,” was established in 1996 and is the inspiration of veteran winemaker Mario Bollag and his wife Athena Tergis, two artists who combined their love of Visual Arts and Music with their passion for Winemaking. Terralsole’s 12 hectares (30 acres) of vineyards echo this harmony combining two distinctive terroirs in Montalcino to create full-bodied, balanced wines. The Pian Bossolino vineyards surrounding the winery and Villa Terralsole sit high on the southeastern slope of Montalcino. Enjoying cooler weather and excellent ventilation, the vines ripen slowly and evenly, producing expressive aromas and elegant flavours in the wine. The vineyards of Fonte Lattaia sit lower at 750 feet. Its unique terroir of marine deposits and clay maintain balance amid the warm, dry climate of Montalcino’s southwestern slope. Here Sangiovese is rich, stately and structured. All our wines are 100% estate grown, hand harvested and bottled.
