Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

Known in the local dialect as “Derthona”, the Colli Tortonesi DOC of Piemonte is located around the town of Tortona, in the eastern part of Piemonte. Timorasso is an ancient native white varietal that was virtually extinct, but it was revived by the renowned winemaker Walter Massa in the 1980's.
Luigi Boveri Derthona is made from 100% Timorasso grown in the municipality of Costa Vescovato on marly calcareous vineyards. After temperature controlled fermentation, the wine is aged on the lees for 12 months in pressure controlled stainless steel tanks, and refined in the bottle for further 6 months before release. This phenomenal white has a golden yellow straw color. The nose is complex with aromas of ripe yellow peaches, citrus, and mineral notes. It has flavors of stone and tropical fruits, and hints of wildflowers, balanced by light acidity, great minerality, and a lingering finish. Pair it with risotto, fish, white meat, bitter greens salads, cheeses, and vegetable pasta.

5 of 5 2017 is even better! April 19, 2021
Reviewer: John Santora from Stockton CA United States  
Light gold color; quite fragrant/floral/pear/Viog-like/spicy/peach slight earthy lovely perfumey nose;
bit soft some Viog-like/pear/floral/peach blossom/spicy slight perfumed talc lovely flavor; very long
pear/floral/Viog-like/perfumey slight earthy finish; a very pretty atypical expression of Timorasso
and a bit of a light-weight but quite lovely and a great value!
