Wow…what’s going on here??!! It’s like Chenin on steroids. Complex and layered notes showing its climate and soil. Single-vineyard. Tre Bicchieri winner. Rather mute aroma other than pear than explodes into a light dose of honey, acacia, wax and granite, yet round and creamy. Absolutely superb — 10 days ago

Solid white, not a tad but I’d dryness to it on the finish, but initially very full and fruity. “Orchardy” is how our server described it and for some reason that hit. A touch of sweetness that I enjoyed, but not overly so. — 22 days ago
Timorasso is an indigenous grape from Piedmont.
7.5 hectare vineyard of 25 year old vines grown in marly, calareous, clay and sandy soil.
Stainless steel ferment followed by 8 months resting on the lees then 3 months of bottle ageing before release.
Giorgio Rivetti, owner of La Spinetta, considers Timorasso as the white Nebbiolo.
Will easily age 5-10 years.
Bright, brilliant straw gold.
Stone fruit, ripe nectarines, Acacia honey and white flowers.
Layers of flavours with tropical fruit, almonds and bergamot.
This wine dances a fine line between smooth texture, citrus, minerals and flowers. — 3 months ago
