Torrozza less traveled

Ferrando 2007 Canavese Rosso “La Torrozza” (Piedmont) – Fulsome and juicy; an explosion of mixed berries (red and black) with clover, just a hint of tar, and a slushy swath of acidity. There’s a slightly acrid overlay that’s just a little off-putting, and detracts from the boisterous pleasure, but it’s still a most enjoyable wine. Watch that acridity, though, because I don’t think it’s going to improve as the wine lingers. (7/09)
