Torcolato 500ml

Torcolato is a wine traditionally made from dried grapes; clusters are naturally dried by hanging them on beams through strings in dry and airy attics of houses located on Breganze hills.Torcolato is made from “Vespaiola” grape, a native variety typical of Breganze area and nowhere available in other Italian regions.

To produce Torcolato a selection of thin clusters is made choosing the best ones exposed to the sun. Clusters naturally dry hanged on beams till the end of January / beginning of February, then they are pressed and their yield is very low (15/20 l of must per 100 Kg of grapes).

Fermentation lasts some months and wine is aged in steel tanks for at least 4 years. Torcolato doesn’t fear the passing of time since it improves with age. We choose to age our Torcolato only in steel tanks, instead of using oak barrels, because we want to underline the fruity soul of our wine;

Vespaiola grape has in fact a huge aromatic complexity which can be reduced or damaged by toasted or spiced notes, distinctive of wine aged in barrels. Our Torcolato, thanks to Vespaiola grape and to our land, is therefore a characteristic product of our terroir and it doesn’t conform to the “international taste”.
