Style: DRY WHITE
Main characteristic: HEADY & STRUCTURED
A rather big boned wine from a rising star of a grape called Timorasso. Grown in the hills of eastern Piedmont above Genoa, when young it can be readily tropical and lively, with bracing acidity. Ours has been given time to develop though into a very different beast, with power and weight carried along by great structure.
If you're a Burgundy fan, or enjoy old Chenin Blanc or Riesling like me, you should definitely give this a try, maybe with roast (or barbecued) pork.
