Denomination: Colli Tortonesi DOC Timorasso
Winemaking: the grapes are selected from different vineyards located in Monleale (Alessandria Province), with a south-east and south-west exposure and a clay-limestone soil. Fermentation lasts 4 weeks and occurs partly in cermic and partly in wooden and stainless steel casks. It does not undergo malolactic fermentation.
Aging: 10 months in ceramic, wooden and stainless steel casks, on fine lees maintained in suspension with batonnage
Description: clear, intense yellow colour with green hues. Pear and peach fruit scents. Aromas, of acacia and hawthorn flowers with typical honey notes.
In some cases, after 2/3 years mineral notes are more intense and show hydrocarbons. On the palate it is dry, warm, soft and very well balanced, without edges. It has a long lingering finish with a good acidity.
Food pairings: raw meat, fresh cold-cuts, warm and cold appetizers, first courses with strong flavours and meat dishes. After a few years in the bottle, this wine is perfect with seasoned cheese.
