  • Other Information:A wild and ambitious soul with ancient origins. Asotom is our signature wine—the most complex and multifaceted of our offering. Obtained by the exclusive vinification of the grapes of Claudia Shiffer, a 70-year-old eastern-exposure great vineyard located at 260 m of altitude, just on the side of the wine cellar. It’s possible to visit this beautiful old-vine vineyard on our wine tasting experience tour, as we take a very pleasant walk among the lines covered by grass and maintained in the most environmentally friendly way. The wine is vinified in large wooden barrels and aged in Slavonian durmast barrels - a type of wood that we find more respectful of the grapes’ features - from 36 to 48 months.

About Asotom

Piedmont, Italy

For the first time at the Raw Wine’ fairs, Tommaso, eccentric winemaker, produces personal wines since 2004, as a self-taught wine artesan. He has consciously chosen to enhance the history of his vineyards, restoring vineyards that had long since been forgotten by time. He uses the most ecological and natural methods to grow vineyards and to produce wine in the cellar. His wines are alive and they change every year.. vini vivi e dimenticati (alive and forgotten wines) is his slogan, indeed.
Every bottle contains the essence of that year, the vineyard’s expressivity, and his signature—the personal idea of the winemaker. These are wines with a story to tell and emotions to make you feel.
