Turan

Turan

Turan is a complex, Aleatico wine with grapes that mature on the trellises. The temperature and humidity are controlled daily until the grapes are perfectly dried out to make wine. The permanence on the skins is for a longer time. The wine grapes elevation is made on steel barrels as a stylistic choice.
TURAN is the name of a goddess of ancient times, guardian of Earth and Fertility, better known as Venus or Aphrodite. Her name means “The Lady.”

Wine tasting:

Sight: Very consistent and deep colour with the typical Passito’s wine tones.
Smell: Powerful, rich in floral perfume (dried violets) and fruity (sour and black cherries jam).
The result is a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. It’s better to drink it cold, at 11°/13° degrees.
Turan is the perfect wine to serve with cakes, refined pastries, dried fruits, and chocolate. Interesting is the ideal match with matured, herbs and spicy cheese. We can definitely define the Turan as a beautiful meditation wine.
