    Derthona Timorasso Montemarzino 2016

    If you stumble across a vineyard because of fate, you can go on. Luca Roagna did, however, what he had to do. He inherited this old vineyard, which was completely planted with Timorasso, and since he immediately realised that he wanted to do something useful with it, and he was not familiar with this historic grape variety, he asked Walter Massa, who has dedicated himself to this rare variety for decades. And so, after a few years, he succeeded in making a wine out of it that could more than compete with that of his teacher!

    Bright, clear straw yellow. In the nose quince, citrus and a potpourri of yellow fruits. Then on the palate this saltiness paired with a well-dosed wood seasoning. The long maceration period gives this great white wine strength and stamina. Fine astringency is paired with a pressure that gives this wine - paired with well-dosed acidity and always very present fruit - the uniqueness that makes it at least as unique as the great whites of the Loire or Burgundy, even in direct comparison. And yet he carries the individual Roagna handwriting: a style that can be found neither in France nor in other parts of Piedmont. And that really means something, because the white wines of this Italian noble region are getting better every year. SUPERIORE.DE

    "A mix of floral, pine and petrol aromas give way to peach, apple and almond flavors in this harmonious white. Vibrant and supple in texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish." Wine Spectator

    "The 2016 Timorasso Derthona Montemarzino is another compelling white from Luca Roagna. Citrus, floral and savory notes all run through this tightly wound, focused Timorasso from vineyards in Montemarzino." Vinous
