Torraccia del Piantavigna Vespolina

Wine Description 

The grapes for La Mostella Vespolina come from our hillside vineyards of Ghemme where we also have about 13 acres of Vespolina grapes, which accounts for most of this rare and indigenous varietal. It is the unique character of the Vespolina grape that gives this wine its character. The wine has no contact with wood, a factor which allows the strong character of the grape to come shining through. 

Tasting Notes 

A brilliant Red with slightly balsamic and spicy peppery notes. Astringent flavor due to the strong tannins but fresh and well-balanced, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. 

Food Pairings 

Excellent with Red meats and also slightly fatty foods such as salami.
