Clear ruby red colour, with well-distributed and intact texture, medium-bodied, glyceric core of good texture whose viscosity is noticed observing the walls of the glass.
On the nose, the smell sensations are soft but distinct, opening with an initial aromatic impact of scents of wild berries and violet, with a subsequent progression of red berry fruits as the glass is swirled. In the mouth, the flavour is pleasant, surrounded by complex and unexpcted floral and fruity aromas, where cherry and raspberry stand out.
Its zippy spine of acidity, well integrated with the other elements makes Torrazzo a fresh wine on the palate, softening the intense heat of Groppello and Marzemino fruit it comes from.
In pairing it is a wine that goes well with cold and hot dishes, suitable for the whole meal and as an everyday wine. Surprising is its combination with fatty lakefish dishes.
To be served at a temperature of 14/16°C in tulip-shaped wide-bowled glass.
Ruby red, scents of wild berries and violet, fresh and with fine and elegant tannins.
