The Torresella Winery is located in Italy's eastern Veneto region, an area of gentle hills and broad plains along the Adriatic Sea, about midway between Venice and Trieste. The land, with its alluvial soil of clay and limestone, has been known for its superior vineyards since Roman times.
Torresella was founded by Count Gaetano Marzotto who created a 4,000-acre venture surrounding the winery, ceding the land to tenant farmers from whom he bought the best grapes for his wines. Throughout the years, Torresella has been an innovator in modern winemaking techniques, with a goal of producing fresh, light, crisp wines of consistent quality at affordable prices.
Cantine Torresella produces six 100% varietal wines. There are two white wines, Pinot Grigio and Riesling, two red wines, Pinot Noir and Nero d’Avola, and two sparkling wines, Prosecco and Frizzante. The wines are exceptionally true to their varietal characteristics, with the emphasis on freshness and fruit complexity. ,p> Dr. Fabrizio Guerrini has been the Managing Director of Cantine Torresella since 1987, overseeing the winery's growth as an international symbol of quality and value - as well as a supporter of environmental issues, particularly wildlife. A unique feature of the handsome Torresella bottle labels are images of the ecosystem - stunning reminders of Torresella's commitment to environmental preservation.
The aroma brings a fragrance of spring flowers, pear and apple, while on the palate, a fine string of bubbles is your first indication of the quality of this Prosecco. The flavor is soft, with a creamy fruitiness that hints of almond. This wine is great as an apéritif or with dry sweets and soft cheeses. Serve well chilled.
