Il Torrione is a small wine producer whose owner is Antonio. He originally comes from Rome but he is very passionate about Umbrian wines. His estate in Gualdo Cattaneo comprises 2 hectares of vineyards. He produces about 1500 – 2000 bottles of Sagrantino di Montefalco and 7000 bottles of Rosso di Montefalco wine. The wines he produces are of high quality, one can taste his passion.

During the Bellavita Expo many people enjoyed the wines of Il Torrione. Especially the Bianco IGT (100% Trebbiano Spoletino). Not only because of the taste but also for it’s colour orange. Also the Rosso di Montefalco (70% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 15% Sagrantino) and the Sagrantino Passito (100% Sagrantino) were very much appreciated.

The Rosso di Montefalco 2012 wine was listed to be qualified by a jury. During the presentation of the Italian wines, Il Torrione received a qualification of 3 stars, which is the best qualification you can get at the Bellavita Expo!

Umbria has beautiful wines that are really worth tasting. Especially the Sagrantino wine is very special.
