Borgo Turrito was born just over 10 years ago, thanks to Luca Scapola, a young entrepreneur descendant of an ancient family of winegrowners since 1890. For more than a century, Scapola’s family has been wine producer and in 2015 Borgo Turrito made its first wine label: CalaRosa
Borgo Turrito is located in a special territory: the company and the vineyard are protected by the Regional Park of Incoronata and the Cervaro’s Creek, two very important natural elements that give to the soil a particular chemical composition. That is possible thanks to the ancient oaks and the eucalyptus trees and the fresh water of Cervaro’s.
Borgo Turrito, in the last years, made five wine labels: two reds, two rosés and a white. Let’s start with reds:
TroQué and Terra Cretosa Nero di Troia: both of them are the results of a careful selection of Nero di Troia grapes. TroQué is aged in barriques for 12 months. This wine is a red with an aromatic complexity, warm and enveloping, able to conquer with its sensations of red fruits and chocolate. Terra Cretosa Nero di Troia is an intense ruby red, with smells of ripened red fruits, smooth and velvety tannins, aged for 6 months in tonneaux.
The rosés wines
CalaRosa and Terra Cretosa Aleatico Rosé: both of them are wines rosé, but they are very different each other. CalaRosa is a 100% Nero di Troia, pleasantly smooth and well balanced with intense rose sensations and fruity notes. Terra Cretosa Aleatico Rosé is a warm, delicate and elegant wine, thanks to its aroma of flowers and pink grapefruit.
The white wine
Terra Cretosa Falanghina: a fresh and pleasantly smooth white wine, characterized by notes of white flowers and a delicate final note of almond.
