This is an exciting new addition to the Vietti portfolio. The 2018 Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona is a compact, medium-bodied wine that offers a large span of neutral aromas ranging from melon and quince to Golden Delicious apple. What sets the wine apart is its silky texture and creamy fruit weight. I happily drank my sample with some take-out spring rolls in spicy sauce. We will surely see more prominent winemakers in Lange who decide to dabble in Timorasso in the upcoming years. This native grape shows promising aging potential and makes for an excellent white wine addition in a portfolio of age-worthy reds. 93/100.
JebDunnuck.com: 92/100 Another terrific white, the 2018 Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Derthona is based on Timorasso and spent 10 months on lees in a mix of ceramic, steel, and wooden tanks. More honeyed stone fruits, citrus, and dried pineapple notes emerge from the glass, and it has a richer, toasty slant as well. Medium-bodied, textured, and concentrated, it too offers plenty of richness while staying light on its feet and balanced.
