Tasting Notes

A rare natural wine from the Ligurian coastline. Liguria is more famous for its vermentino is golden yellow and filled with aromas of freshly baked bread and applesauce with a refreshing crisp apple, pear finish. - Chris L

Il Torchio is the name given to the traditional olive press to be found in every village along the Ligurian coast in the past. The locals would all press their own olives at the same Torchio and distribute the virgin oil amongst them. Luigi Tendola always had such a press and for generations has been pressing the local olives from his native town of Castelnuovo Magra. The wine production came later when Giorgio took over from his father and started to bottle wines under the Colli di Luni appellation using local varieties Vermentino and the rare Vermentino Nero. This was start but this tiny winery has been revolutionised by Girgio's children Gilda and her brother Edoardo who are 4th generation wine makers and have taken the traditional wine making of their region and added a bit of funk! The wines are classic in flavour and deliciously fresh and natural, the unusual Torchio Nero being particularly delicious with its resinous flavours and soft red fruits. The super cool labels designed by well known Italian artist Giorgio Musante, represent the vibrancy and youth of the wine makers and also the sunshine in the wine! - Importer Note
