Vinification: The Southeast, Southwest and Northwest facing Verdicchio vineyards for Tordiruta are located in Castelplanio in the Piagge Novali area. The vines are aged from 7 to 35 years old and are grown on deep and rocky, predominantly Plio-Pleistocene and Miocene sands and clay, with some limestone soil. The grapes are harvested late when over-ripe. The clusters are picked by hand and the best quality are placed to dry on reed mats for 3 months undergoing the ‘Noble Rot’ process. After this period, the must ferments for about a month in oak barriques and then matures in barrique for 12 before bottling. The wine then spends a further year in bottle before release.

ABV: 13.5%

Closure: Natural Cork

Note: Tordiruta was chosen to pair with dessert at the Nobel Prize Gala dinner held in Stockholm on Saturday 10th December 2016. 1,450 distinguished guests, the Swedish Royal Family, Heads of State and the Nobel prize winners attended the glamorous event.
