Castello di Torre Elephas Rosso
- Lazio, Italy
The winery is located in the medieval village of Torre in Pietra Castle, where the existence of vineyards is documented since the sixteenth century. The cellar – obtained by digging into the tuff hill behind the Castle – was already used in the 1500s for the production and preservation of wine.
Since the beginning of 2000 they have moved to organic farming and are officially certified. "We believe in organic agriculture out of respect for our territory, which we try to express in the most natural and genuine way possible. This means we don’t alter the organoleptic structure of the wine and get the benefits in terms of quality for the wine we produce."
Intense ruby red colour with light purplish nuances. Young wine with a vinous and fruity character, it opens with notes of sour cherry and red berries. Good structure and balance with well-dosed tannins and a savory finish.
It is served with appetizers of cold cuts and cheeses, rustic pâtés or on the classic amatriciana and first courses with meat sauce. It goes well with main courses such as pork with milk, grilled meats, mixed boiled meats. It also accompanies hard cheeses.

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
