Torello has been managing vines since 1395 and one of the characteristics of the estate’s soils is the presence of accumulations of calcium carbonate.
As rainwater passes through the soil, it dissolves the carbonates and drags them deeper. After thousands of years, they solidify and form a hard layer known as the “petrocalcic horizon”, limiting the water available to the vines and for production, this being essential to ensure the grape’s quality.
