Tor del Colle The profile of Abruzzo, Molise and Apulia could have been drawn by a stylist to make Italy look like a masterpiece: the “heel” that makes the Italian “boot” unique. Elegant heels can turn sporty or bold ones can become romantic thanks to a detail that makes the difference. The heel of the Italian “boot” is made of three beautiful regions. Starting from L’Aquila, reaching Campobasso and arriving in Bari, we discover gentle hills that become wonderful beaches as we approach the sea. Here we can also explore ancient towers reminding us the splendour of the rich castles that once dominated these territories. The brand name “Tor del Colle” is a tribute to the magnificence of towers that from their highness could dominate the whole area. This brand aims to express the culture, the unique food tradition of the Italian “heel”, where wines have a distinctive, definite flavour as their territory.

After an additional soft-pressing the wine is aged for about two years with at least 2 years in barrels.
