Piona - Torre d'Orti

Showing all 4 results

Now one of the 13 families of Amarone. The land was replanted with vines for the production of Valpolicella wines. The terroir is special in that the red earth typical of Valpolicella classico is combined with white chalk. “This terroir combined with the altitude gives the grapes a very low pH and high acidity, creating distinguished and well-balanced wines, extremely elegant, suitable for long aging. In one word: Elegance.” The Piona family are highly meticulous when it comes to selection for the wines of Torre d’Orti with several passes required in the vineyard to select suitable fruit with anything not meeting the high standard sold to other wineries – quantities available fluctuate, as you would expect with wineries focused on their territory.
