One of the most exciting Sauvignons we've had. Stunning, pure Sauvignon, that is almost electric. Wonderfully herbal, green tinged and spiked with wild herbs, pepper and fresh peas from the pod, bruised herbs, with medium body and fresh acidity. The name Tresche is a reference to the complex love affairs in the court of the Medici that are the basis of the birth of Villa Papiano in the distant 1400s. The label is inspired by one of the most famous paintings in Romagna and portrays a young girl engaged in crushing grapes.
Located in the unique terroir of Modigliana, on the border of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, Villa Papiano's vineyards are the highest in the area, planted on terraces between 450-570 metres above sea level. Their wines are defined by the estate's high elevation and steep slopes, ancient soils of marl and sandstone, and unique microclimates created by the dense forest that surrounds them. Farming organically, in a way that respects their incredible surroundings and winemaking with minimal intervention, the Bordini family focus almost exclusively on indigenous varieties and old clones. These are remarkable wines from a terroir that we're adamant will soon be the talk of the town.
