Torrevento | Puglia

Torrevento | Puglia

The Torrevento winery today cultivates 400 hectares, stony karst soils on the high plateau of Murgia offer optimal conditions for cultivation, especially native grape varieties. Underground watercourses provide the ideal irrigation in a natural way. In addition, there is the Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and relatively cold winters. Since the vineyards, which are situated at an altitude of 400 to 600 meters, are only thirteen kilometers from the sea, the omnipresent wind ensures that the vines are evenly ventilated. It is precisely to this wind that the name 'Torrevento" - 'Tower of the Wind" - refers. The cantina, equipped with the latest technology, is hidden within the walls of a former 18th century Benedictine monastery. The complex also includes extensive rock cellars under the monastery, which provide optimal conditions for the aging and maturation of the wines. - Gerardo

"The vineyards are located below Castel del Monte and the silhouette of the mysterious Frederician castle dominates the entire area. Because of this location, Francesco Liantonio and his staff must therefore feel more than others the responsibility to represent precisely this magical territory and the grape variety Nero di Troia, which is the hallmark of the profile of winemaking. - Daniele Cernilli (Doctor Wine)

"In the very north of the Murgia lies the Torrevento estate, which the Liantonio family has maintained since 1948. Their vines grow at an average density of 4,500 vines per hectare on the limestone typical of the karst formation." - Gambero Rosso
