Pale to mid Gold. Honeycomb, Quince with Apricot and a Charcoal note - wonderful aromatics which kept changing. Incredibly flavoursome with a creamy texture on the palate even though no oak ageing. Cumquat jam and apricot notes. A kaleidoscope of vibrant delicious flavours. Made from the little known Timorasso grape in Piedmont. Walter Massa was the saviour of this grape when much Timorasso was grubbed out in favour of the less troublesome Cortese to produce bulk quantities of the ubiquitous Gavi. They now grow the last few hectares of Timorasso in the world with minimal intervention, wild yeasts and no chemicals. Seek a bottle out for an exciting vinous journey. One of the 1001 Wines.

So mindful of the producer to have all the information in braille printed on the label!

Good Timorasso but too expensive for what it is. Lemon finish and vanilla start.
