Torami has been made in 2003 for the first time and its name comes from a particle situated in the estate. This wine reflects the will to test a less usual blend composed of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon in order to obtain a most charming and intriguing wine.
The vineyards are situated in the Trasimeno Lake area, in Umbria. The fruit underwent maceration for twenty days allowing for the necessary skin contact and was followed by the primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
The wine is then allowed to rest for ten months in french barriques. Following this period of ageing in barrique the wine is bottled and kept in the cellar for another six months.
Deep ruby red in color, has a generous bouquet that begins with a hint of blackberry jam, before veering toward the eucalyptus and licorice.
Very well balanced tannins and long finish.
Perfect in combination with game, especially wild boar.
