Iandolo. Timorasso 'Derthona'
Colli Tortonesi DOC
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.
