Wines

The wines of Torre Bisenzio combine the history of the terroir with indigenous grapes. Minerality in the soil comes from sedimentary clay and alluvial silt with marine fossils when the land was originally part of the Tyrrhenian sea. The location between the Trasimeno and Bolsena lakes creates a Mediterranean sub climate giving optimal growing conditions for elegant and fuller bodied wines which maintain their freshness. The soil is well drained and the vines are not irrigated.
