More details: Suitable for vegans. The Castelrotto Rosso is made with grapes from an old vineyard planted in 1960. The wine has been produced to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Alessandro Torti's first harvest. Castelrotto Rosso is only produced in the best vintages. Fermentation is made on the skins for 20 days. The wine is then aged for two years in French oak barriques before being bottled. This wine will age for ten years or more in a good cellar.

For many generations the Torti family has been growing its own grapes near Montecalvo Versiggia, a small town in the heart of the Oltrepò Pavese region - a region with a centuries-long tradition of winemaking. “You have to respect the land and everything that comes from it” was Pietro's father's favourite saying. Respecting the land, respecting the vineyard and the grapes are the founding rules of Pietro's philosophy of work. Producing wines in a natural way - with permanent grass covering the vineyards, organic fertilisation, very limited use of sulphur and copper as fungicides - is not the easy way; but Pietro embraces the challenge because for him ''wines of great personality can only be made by refusing the standardisation of taste.''
