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 ruins reminding us the splendour of the rich castles that once dominated these territories. The brand name “Tordelcolle” is a tribute to the magnificence of ruins, 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.
The harvested and destemmed grapes undergo 7-8 days of cold soaking in order to extract colour and structure prior to fermentation. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are made in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature 25-27°C. The wine obtained is aged for at least 24 months, 9 of which in wooden barrels.
