Francesco Iandolo Timorasso Derthona Colli Tortonesi auctonous white grape making a medium to full bodied dry white from Piemonte Piedmont Italy

Iandolo. Timorasso 'Derthona'

  • 2000

Colli Tortonesi DOC
Grape  Timorasso

 There is more than a hint of Riesling to this wine, steely lime, torn basil, ripe sage and citrus tropical fruit. A bone dry, intense, and complex wine, piercing and powerful with the promise to develop over many years.  13.5%

Timorasso ranks in the top division of esoteric wines, it is an unruly genius of a vine. Before phylloxera the vine rivalled Cortese for white dominance in Piemonte, it has retreated into the Colli Tortenese (Tortonesi hills) and is a grail for small artisan winemakers.
