Terra Petit Derthona
Zingy and light, with lemon notes. Walter Massa is the contadino straordinario who brought the grape back to life in the early 1980s.
Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia
Porto Vino writes: Timorasso is one of those grapes... that really is delicious and refreshing to eat right off the vine, due to its high sugar content and acidity. When Timorasso is vinified, you get lots of complexity and structure (from alcohol and from tannins – skin contact and thick skins!). Yet there’s plenty of acidity to keep things fresh and a definite counterpoint of what we call ‘honeyed minerality.’
