iL Torchio Vermentino IL Bianco - Liguria, Italy
Brother & Sister team, Eduardo & Gilda took over the winery 3 gen. Winemakers.
Natural winemaking – organic viticulture
They use an olive press device to push the fruit through.
Subtle natural white wine, lively nose, yellow straw, gooseberries, tinge of petrol, sexy, silky minerality. Il Bianco is focused, elegant and crisp, balanced by a slightly broader texture and expressive, fruit-forward aromatics. The Il Torchio bottling ups the ante with more stuffing, great concentration and a core of stony/salty minerality reminiscent of a great Chablis. It can certainly hold its own on any table alongside the greatest whites Italy has to offer.
* Practicing Organic. Young generation taking over their family’s historic property (Gilda and Edoardo’s grandfather was a legendary grower in the Colli di Luni appellation).
Very short skin contact (18-20 hours) fermented & briefly matured in stainless steel.
Sourced from estate vineyard near bottom of the hill with clay soil.
Vines are 15 years old
This 12 hectare estate (9 of which are planted to vine) is unique for the region in that it is one large contiguous parcel rather than many small parcels.
