Way back in 1900, a Frenchman by the name of Pierre Tintero, found himself in Piedmont in the pursuit of work. He found work in the form of a struggling widow who needed help with her estate; Pierre became an asset to the estate, and ultimately, fell in love with the widow Rosina. Elvio Tinttero, for who the winery is named, began experimenting with the difficult process of frizzante wines in the 80s. Now on to the fourth generation, Marco and Cinzia are running the operations today. The focus of their winemaking is Moscato d’Asti, the slightly fizzy frizzante wine with a distinctive sweetness.
This is single vineyard Moscato d’Asti coming from 30 year old vines. There might not be another single Moscato d’Asti quite like this one; it has terroir and complexity. “Sori” is Piedmontese for a south-facing slope while Gramella is the name of the area in Asti that grows these Moscato grapes. Fermentation only begins when an order is received in order to maintain the freshest wine possible.
