Timorasso is a native white grape variety grown in the Tortona area since the Middle Ages. Already mentioned in the first agricultural encyclopedia of the fourteenth century, over the centuries it confirmed its aptitudes and became the most important Piedmontese white grape. After the Second World War its production is gradually abandoned, preferring to more resistant and vigorous grapes.

In the 90s Piercarlo and Elisa were among the first 5 wineries of the Tortona Hills with some young winemakers to believe in the recovery of Timorasso and they identified in the 20 hectares of de Colombera vineyards, the land destined to enhance the characteristics of this vine: an alternation of layers of sandstone and clayey marl, limestone and tuffaceous patches, the right altitude to convey to the wine the decisive minerality and particular finesse, which are best expressed in aging.

Piercarlo and Elisa plant 5 different types of vineyards, using the mass selection of Timorasso plants and after years of study and sensorial analysis they are able to obtain a complete ampelographic and aromatic profile and greater complexity in the glass. As well as Cru they select the Montino the most awarded wine of the Colombera.

If Timorasso in its youth is full-bodied and pleasant, after the years of bottle aging the most interesting characteristics emerge: the mineral and hydrocarbon notes, the refinement and balance, between power, finesse and intensity.
