2018 Oltretorrente Colli Tortonesi Barbera Dolcetto

Piedmont, Italy

At first swig, the palate is savoury. The fruit is crunchy with blueberry, plum and some red berries that intertwine with fresh earth notes and light, fine tannin.Nine parts Barbera to one part Dolcetto which spends eight month in cement tanks (rather than oak barrels), providing with immense vitality.

About the maker

Oltretorrente vineyards are located in Paderna in the evocative hilly area of Tortona. The uniqueness of the wines of Oltretorrente is due to the characteristics of the plants

All the old vines of Oltretorrente are different from each other and were selected 60 years ago in the same environment in which they are grown today. They maintain the link between plant and territory, so the resulting wine is something unable to be reproduced elsewhere. Organic methods significantly reduce the yields, but this is of benefit to the complexity and structure of wines: in fact the old vines produce less but the plants are more balanced and grapes are richer and deeper in their characteristics.
