    Quantity

    Tortoniano is named for the tortonian-era soils in which the vines are planted, which contain a high percentage of magnesium and manganese. Grape clusters are thinned and harvested up to 15 days later than usual so that the fruit attains higher concentration. Temperatures are strictly controlled during vinification and the wine is aged for two years in large oak casks and one year in bottle before release.

    TASTING NOTE:

    The wine shows layered aromas of mint, fennel, plum and spices before rich red currant flavors, with rose petal and more mint notes. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish.

    FOOD PAIRING:

    This wine is a superlative pairing for beef roasts, lamb, game and hard cheeses

    • pH: 3.65
    • Alcohol: 13.91%
    • Acidity: 5.95

    Some more savory aromas lead the nose here with game, leather and crushed rose petals, as well as fresh, woody notes and cherries. The palate has a swathe of brisk acidity, driving fresh red fruit and a strong thread of fine, juicy tannins. Assertive, long finish. Try from 2023. - James Suckling 90 points
