An ancient sardinian varietal, torbato is said to have reached the shores of the iberian peninsula thanks to the Phoenicians, and later brought to the island by the Catalans when they governed it.
It is an especially fascinating varietal, which was studied for many years by Sella & Mosca, the first winery to produce it unblended. Terre Bianche takes its name from the calcareous soil, and the wine stands out for its bouquet and harmony.
