Piattelli Torrontés comes from the Torrontés Riojano grape, a crisp and complex grape considered the best of the sub-varietals. Grown at 5,890 feet elevation, where extreme thermal amplitudes produce grapes bursting with flavor. Piattelli Torrontés is an elegant rendition of this varietal showcasing the freshness and floral qualities this wine is known for, moderated lightly with oak.  Crushed gently in our gravity-flow winery and fermented at 55.4°F, the juice was kept free from harsh flavors throughout the winemaking process. Delicious paired with spicy foods.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A refreshing, fragrant wine, the color of yellow topaz. This Torrontés bursts with tropical aromas of pineapple, peach and orange blossom. Aromatic notes resonate in the mouth with fresh apricot and lychee and a hint of orange zest. Acidity is well-balanced in the mouth with a citrusy medium finish.
