Timorasso is an indigenous white-grape variety of the Alessandria province (Piedmont), grown in an area of just 40 hectares, where the vine thrives in a perfect environment created by the soil, the extended sun exposure and the position sheltered from the wind.
Timorasso has been cultivated since the Middle Ages, and it seems that it was greatly appreciated by Leonardo da Vinci. The limited but high-quality production makes it a precious wine for real connoisseurs and enthusiasts.
It’s an excellent aging DOC white wine. Its organoleptic qualities (ripe pear and wildflower honey) are fully appreciated only after four to five years of aging.
Soft pressing of the whole grape and aging for 10 months in concrete vats with weekly batonnage.
