Timorasso grapes - an indigenous grape variety that can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Production is centred around the town of Tortona (known as Derthona in Roman times. Very, very limited.
Aromas of apricot stone and yellow nectarine are joined by floral notes, lime, and lime blossom. On the palate this shows lively, exuberant autumn apples, a hint of lemon oils and pith, fennel bulb, and mashed hard pears. The finish is lifted with a touch of lemon blossom and honeysuckle.
