Description

Torre Zambra Colle Maggio Passerina 2018

Torre Zambra Colle Maggio Passerina has a brilliant straw yellow. The fresh, elating nose shows hints of Granny Smith and citrus fruit. The mouth echoes the crisp and freshness, that complements the perfect roundness on the palate. This bottle of white has a great balanced sensory profile with a refreshing and pleasing tanginess.

In the Colle Maggio vineyards the vines have an average age of 25 and allow us to create fragrant and complex white wines and red wines suitable for long aging. They are located at an altitude of 150m above sea level with exposure to South and South East.

Passerina “Colle Maggio” is the most recent success in Torre Zambra’s endeavour to revive Abruzzo’s precious native heirloom cultivars. The essence of Villamagna’s dependable hill terroir finds a powerful voice in this monovarietal white made out of Passerina grapes.

The vineyards are on the slopes of Colle Maggio hill, in Villamagna, about 200 metres above sea level and with perfect south-east exposure. Yield per hectare are around 120 quintals, on limestone and clay soils that imbue the wines with their minerality and longevity. Manual picking guarantees that only the clusters at the best stage of ripeness make their way to the wooden crates.

The grapes are cold-macerated for 24 hours and soft-crushed, then the wine matures for two months in steel vats and for two months in the bottle, in true winery tradition, emerging an elegant, intense, brilliant straw yellow.
