Castello di Torre

Lazio

Intense ruby red colour with slight purple hues. The nose of ripe red fruit and light grassy notes, are perceived as warm mellow notes, the impact is pleasant and soft. The palate is seductive, opens gradually without bombastic explosions. It is a wine with no edges, smooth and balanced, the right pleasantness. In the final the roundness of the fruit is made simple by a slight bitter note.

Lovely bright red fruit aromas with a slight herbal note lead to a smooth and balanced fruity red, very mellow.

Castello di Torre

Lazio



There is documentation of the vineyards around Castello di Torre from the sixteenth century when the fund belonged to the Peretti family (Pope Sixtus V). The estate was bought in the 30s by Senator Luigi Albertini, former director and owner of the Corriere della Sera, and a company, specialising in the production of milk was established.

Later Luigi Albertini (grandfather of the owners, Maria and Margherita Carandini) intended to strengthen the wine business by expanding the existing cellar in Castello di Torre in Pietra and planting new vineyards.

The winery is located within the medieval village of Torre in Pietra; it has been obtained by digging into the tuff hill behind the Castle (in the thirties by digging a connecting tunnel between the old caves two prehistoric mammoth tusks were discovered).
