2021 'La Torrazza' Canavese Rosso
Carema, Alto Piemonte

91 pts Vinous (Galloni)
The 2021 Rosso Canavese is a gorgeous, fresh red Nebbiolo/Barbera blend to drink now and over the next few years. Rose petal, sweet red berry fruit, cedar, pipe tobacco and dried herbs are beautifully delineated. All the savory and mineral energy of this Alpine district comes alive in an accessible, entry-level offering that can be enjoyed with minimal fanfare. What a delight this is. - By Antonio Galloni on June 2023

Grapes: Nebbiolo (Picotener) (65%), Barbera (30%), Neretta (5%)
Site: A single-vineyard the south-southwest-facing Torrazza vineyard in the town of Borgomasino
Soils: Glacial granitic moraine
Vines: Planted at 1,800 vines/ha and trained in Guyot, vines average 45 years old.
Fermentation: Following total destemming, wine ferments with indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel tanks. Cuvaison lasts 15-20 days.  Malolactic in tank after.
Aging: 12-15 months in stainless-steel tanks, about 1 year in bottle

Importer: Produced predominantly from Nebbiolo with roughly 30% Barbera and a touch of a local variety known as “Neretta” (the “little black”), this lovely red wine, vinified in stainless steel and bottled 12 to 15 months after harvest, is full of wild berries (notably strawberry and raspberry), spice and a touch of warm earthiness. The tannins are delicate and fine which enables this wine to be consumed with pleasure in its youth. As always with Nebbiolo-based wines, harvest occurs usually in the early to mid parts of October. Approximately 8000 bottles of this wine are produced annually.
