Timorasso Derthona is a white wine from the Mariotto winery, fruity and mineral that comes from vineyards with about 40 years of age.
In the glass the Timorasso Derthona has a straw yellow color of medium intensity. The nose gives off soft fruity scents with a long flint finish . The taste is mineral accompanied by notes of chamomile and plums. Finally it closes with a finish of toasted almond notes. Excellent in combination with shellfish and aged cheeses.
Following the harvest, the grapes are softly pressed and subsequently fermented at a controlled temperature. Finally the Timorasso Derthona rests for a few months on the fine lees in steel.
