2015 Luigi Boveri "Derthona" Timorasso Colli Tortonesi

SKU #1319179

From the bright and refreshing side of Piedmont, comes this 100% Timorasso. Gently pressed an then allowed to macerate for 48-60 hours on the skins, this white takes on exceptional depth and texture. Fermentation completes with native yeasts, and then then rests in tank for 12 months, receiving gentle batonnage in order to round out the expressive character. The wine rests for six months before release and is brilliant gold, with notes of fresh starfruit and citrus, a mineral core, and is both textural and lively through the finish.

The Boveri "Derthona" Timorasso is a wonderful Italian white with a rich, almost oily, yet mineral driven palate. This juxtaposition of body and minerality is one of the reasons I have begun to fall in love with Italian whites, and this Timorasso has star quality in that regard. With green, herbaceous aromas, and crisp, bright citrus notes, this is a refreshing and powerful wine that can ease your transition from light Summer whites into the colder months.

Although Walter Massa remains the benchmark for Timorasso, this latest from Luigi Boveri is knockout. Surprising aromas of hazelnut, honey and minerals are only enhanced by a round and creamy textured palate with great acidity and length. We guessed it was over $20 which made this even more impressive. This truly is among the best Italian whites we've added to our cellars of late.

This is white wine for a red wine drinker. There is so much concentration and depth of flavor, intensity, complexity and downright deliciousness 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.

Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
Sub-Region:

Piedmont

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
