LA COLOMBERA 2012 TIMORASSO IL MONTINO

With a passion for farming and viticulture, Piercarlo and Elisa make wines from local grape varieties Timorasso, Cortese, Nibiņ (a member of the Dolcetto family), Barbera and Croatina.
In 2000 they decided to cultivate a very old and difficult white grape variety, Timorasso. Since then, Piercarlo and Elisa have furiously studied this ancient grape variety and planted vines in five different vineyards with the aim of cultivating Timorasso grapes unique and distinct from one another. In 2006, after years of cultivation, Piercarlo and Elisa decided to present two different wines from Timorasso; the first to represent the complexity of the grape and its terroir, Derthona, and the second to represent La Colombera, Il Montino.

The Timorasso in this wine comes from Il Montino and La Colombera and reflects the essence of this grape variety. It is fermented in stainless steel and ages on the lees for nine months.
The color is clear-intense yellow gold. The bouquet is full and fruity with notes of nectarine, acacia flowers, whitehorn and honey with a bright mineral character. A very dry wine that is warm, round, and well balanced. Finishes with solid structure and persistence.
