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

Castello di Torre 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 Castello di Torre 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.

Serve with appetisers of cold cuts and cheeses, rustic pâtés or 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.

"The 2019 Castello di Torre Elephas from Lazio is an organic blend of Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Merlot fermented in concrete vats. It’s young, I know, but not a wine to age. Drink it now and revel in its fresh, juicy cherry-like fruit and imagine you’re on some sun-dappled Roman terrace, a steaming plate of bucatini all’amatriciana in front of you and a gorgeous companion with which to share it." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
