The name Timorasso often crops up when wine lovers speculate about what Italy's future great white wines might be. Revived from near-extinction by a handful of producers, it still occupies only 20 or so hectares in it's native Piedmont.
Summer-meadow scents unfold from the glass, with fresh apple, bitter lemon, and a touch of kerosene. This is a wine to spend time with - honeyed aromas come with aeration, along with warm cereal notes. Intense, long, persistent, floral, fruity, with a warming sensation on the palate. Soft, elegant, and complex. A mineral note very typical of Timorasso, with touches of chamomile, ripe yellow plums, and toasted almond in the finish. A wine that entices and leaves you wanting more.
