PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Cantina Tortona was established in 1931 by a group of thirty-eight farmers who wanted to stop migration from the countryside and promote vine growing as a noble and profitable way of life. It is part of the DOC of Colli Tortonese, which spans the Tortona hills in the south-eastern part of Piedmont. These hills lie in close proximity to Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, and Liguria, with varying elevations from 400 to 1500 feet above sea level.*

Timorasso, the star of today's offer, is the most widely planted grape here; it brings forth full-bodied, compelling wines but its wonderful qualities have been overshadowed by its difficult and high-maintenance cultivation process. It takes strong and persistent farmers to grow this persnickety varietal, but their patience is rewarded with finished wines characterized by richness and concentration undercut by bright, mineral-driven acidity.

Today's wine has me singing the praises of Timorasso - as well as those dedicated farmers! It has aromas of white flowers, wet stone, and lemon oil that foreshadows its full-bodied palate. AND THAT PALATE! Lushly-textured almost to the point of viscosity, it beguiles with flavors of ripe lemon sorbet tinged with hints of savory herbs and wet stone. All that abundance is brought into balance by vibrant acidity that accompanies peppery baking spices to a long and harmonious finish.
