Region: Piedmont

 

Vol: 14.5%


Wine: Timorasso 100% from ancient select vines of the municipality of Vho.


Soil characteristics: calcareous-clay


Harvest: late September/early October, harvested by hand into small wooden baskets

 

Vinification: soft pressing, racking off and fermentation at controlled temperature with refinement on the fine lees.


Alcohol content: 13-14°% vol.


Color: very clear, medium-intensity straw yellow color.


Nose: intense, long-lasting, constant, persistent, floral and fruity with a smooth, warm sensation in a soft, elegant complex with final hints of flint.


Palate: very typical, mild mineral hints that dissipate into chamomile, ripe plums, walnut and toasted almond in the finale.


Serving temperature: 45–48 degrees F.

 

Serving suggestions: excellent served throughout the meal, after dinner and as a “meditation” wine. Comes into its own when served with full-flavored cheeses and rival- less with shellfish in addition to elegantly accompanying white meats, meat pâtéand vegetable pies.
