Colli Tortonesi doc Timorasso
Azienda Monterosso is located in the Piemont region. The vineyards are part of the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) Hills of Tortona, at an average of 280 meters above sea level. There are currently 10 ha of vineyards planted.
Average summer temperatures and rainfall are very similar to those of Bordeaux. However, overall, the climate is Mediterranean, with an extended summer and autumn enabling the grape varieties to achieve perfect ripeness.
Generally, summers are hot and winters are cold.
Timorasso is a very old vine and used to be one of the most praised in the province of Alessandria. It was almost totally lost in the early twentieth century where vineyards were replanted after the ravages of phylloxera.
Timorasso combines aromas of light honey and spice as well as floral, citrus and nutty characteristics with delicate minerality and good acidity. Timorasso wines have a true longevity that take on kerosene notes with time.
