2021 La Colombera - Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona

Timorasso is a very old grape that is very much the "hot new thing" in Piemonte, especially in the vineyards around Tortona. One of the first to lean in to Timorasso after it was revived by Walter Massa in the 1980s, Elisa Semino has been making "Derthona" (the dialect name for Tortona) for 20+ years.

At its best, Timorasso is kind of a cross between dry Riesling and Chablis, high in acidity, green in fruit, showing white flowers and lots of minerality. This is a great example, serving up honeysuckle, jasmine, orange peel, green peach, lime and stone aromas and flavors. It's almost chewy in texture, with a vivid, wildly complex, finish and excellent sustain.
