2018 Vietti "Derthona" Timorasso Colli Tortonesi

SKU #1488302 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is an exciting new addition to the Vietti portfolio. The 2018 Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona is a compact, medium-bodied wine that offers a large span of neutral aromas ranging from melon and quince to Golden Delicious apple. What sets the wine apart is its silky texture and creamy fruit weight. I happily drank my sample with some take-out spring rolls in spicy sauce. We will surely see more prominent winemakers in Lange who decide to dabble in Timorasso in the upcoming years. This native grape shows promising aging potential and makes for an excellent white wine addition in a portfolio of age-worthy reds. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

Outer quote mark Another terrific white, the 2018 Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona is based on Timorasso and spent 10 months on lees in a mix of ceramic, steel, and wooden tanks. More honeyed stone fruits, citrus, and dried pineapple notes emerge from the glass, and it has a richer, toasty slant as well. Medium-bodied, textured, and concentrated, it too offers plenty of richness while staying light on its feet and balanced. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

This is white wine for a red wine drinker. There is so much concentration and depth of flavor, intensity, complexity and downright delicousness here, you'll have a hard time ever sipping on a light quaffing white wine ever again. Made from 100% Timorasso, a rare Piedmontese varietal. This is Vietti's first vintage of this varietal and they hit it out of the ballpark ( like Mike Yastrzemski's grand slam!).

If you’ve never tried Timorasso before this is the wine to try and it is my favorite Italian white wine grape. Grown in Eastern Piedmont this one time almost extinct grape owes its recovery to one man, Walter Massa. Now Vietti’s recently purchased vineyards from Massa have shown their winemaking prowess! The nose of this wine is penetrating, white flowers, stone fruit with spice and shows incredible depth. On the palate this is a wine with body, although there’s no oak signature, a bit of grip and layers of flavor. The finish is bold, long and persistent, this is truly a sensational wine, try it with grilled halibut or sea bass!
