Brilliant gold in color, Torcolato offers rich, spicy aromas of baked pears with hints of honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and hazelnuts. On the palate, it is sweet, without being cloying, and full-bodied with vibrant acidity. Torcolato is perfectly enjoyable on its own but also pairs well with desserts like the crispy oversized cookies from the Veneto called "fregolata," and aged cheeses ike the local specialty Asiago Stravecchio.

Wine AdvocateThe gorgeous 2009 Breganze Torcolato opens with a bright golden color and a beautifully fragrant bouquet. Vespaiola grapes (100%) rooted in volcanic soils are air-dried after harvest for four months. Layers of honey, apricot, vanilla and light shadings of baking spice lift effortlessly off the bouquet. That signature minerality appears at the back. Surely, the wine has its sweet spot, but this expression seems silkier and more linear than most.

Wine SpectatorThe apricot tart, ground cardamom, guava and pickled ginger flavors are backed by bright, mouthwatering acidity in this rich dessert wine that nonetheless remains light-footed and graceful. Treacle and apricot notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases made.
