Borgogno Derthona Timorasso dell Colli Tortonesi 2018

£33.50 GBP

Timorasso is a once extinct, ancient native Piemontese grape varietal which was revived in the late 70's/80's. Once harvested, the Timorasso grapes are taken to Borgogno's winery in Barolo to be processed. A week prior to harvest they create a 'Pied de Cuve' using the natural yeasts from the vineyard. Fermentation is carried out using these natural yeasts for around 20 days in stainless steel at a low temperature of 16°C. The wine is aged in concrete tanks for 10 months and a further period of refinemant in bottle for 6 months before release. 

Delicate, floral and aromatic on the nose. Beautiful freshness on the palate, this wine is dry with mineral characteristics and fresh citrus and stone fruit flavours. 

A great aperitif wine, or pair with salads, vegetables or white fish
