Producer: Torre Fornello is a recent development from Emilia Romagna with ancient roots and a very long history. In 1998, Enrico Sgorbati started the renovation of the 15th-century medieval “borgo” and added a modern cellar equipped with the best modern technology for refining and aging the wines in barrels located in the XVII century cellar. Only grapes harvested from their vineyards are vinified in Torre Fornello, the same vineyards which were already cultivated in 1600 for the production of grapes.
