Torbido - 2016

Torbido is created from fruit grown on the estate and hand gathered in the Ravera vineyard. Cascina Ebreo's Torbido, which is only produced in exceptional vintages, is a wine that has made history, both for its excellence and for its counter-tendency to boast of lofty titles. Peter Weimer created it distinctive and one-of-a-kind; this is the new Matteo. Torbido was the word used by Peter as the manner the DOCG classified and regulated the wine from being labeled as Barolo. It is crafted from the purest, most prestigious local grapes from a prominent MGA named Ravera. Elusive and austere, it does not disguise its own personality and is not afraid of being judged. Few bottles are manufactured for a wine that does not wish to brag about the grapes from which it is made and is already out of stock as soon as it is released!
