Tasting Notes Drink: 

Casa Vinicola Botter Spa was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions. Tor Del Colle is a deep purple in colour with intense aromas of blackberries and cherries. The palate is round and rich with notes of ripe berry fruit, sweet black cherries, a touch of liquorice and a distinctive spicy character from 12 months aging in wooden casks. Chewy tannins support the palate which finishes long and fruity.

Pair with: Mature cheeses, but avoid blues.
