Turlo Lago di Corbara DOC

Tenuta di Salviano

Turlo Lago di Corbara DOC play

Region: Italy / Umbria

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.
