The Turlo’ vineyards are located on the hills of Lake Corbara’s northern bank at 150 to 380 meters in elevation. The generally southern exposure varies by vineyard site. The soil is rich in red clay, tufa (a limestone common to central Italy) and small pebbles. The grapes are harvested by hand at optimum ripeness to ensure a rich, concentrated finished wine. Each grape variety is fermented separately in small, temperature-controlled steel tanks. A maceration period with frequent pumping over is followed by malolactic fermentation. A small amount of the wine is aged in French oak barriques prior to blending and bottling for added complexity.
Food pairing
Pair with hard cheeses, grilled or braised meats, risotto.

Producer
Nestled among Umbria’s rolling hills on the southern bank of Lake Corbara, the Salviano property is owned by Marchesa Nerina Corsini Incisa della Rocchetta, whose family crafts the legendary Sassicaia, and is run by her sons, Piero and Giovanni.
