After several years working for more conventional wineries, Chiara Penati and her husband Michele Conoscente started Oltretorrente in 2010 with the purchase of 1.5 hectares of vines. Since they acquired the vineyards, they have worked to restore natural soil fertility by planting grass in soils that were hoed for many years. This bottle is a sublime field blend in which scents of white jasmine, quince, and Meyer lemon are abundant while flavors of Stayman apple, lychee and tangerine are a welcomed friend. Pair this bottiglia bella with whole branzino, aged Gorgonzola or a roast pork loin.
