Derthona Colli Tortonesi DOC Timorasso 2020 - Fontanafredda

An ancient variety, indigenous to the Tortonese hills. This is the Timorasso, now brought back to life under the name of Derthona. A white wine of great charm, elegant and powerful. A white wine for true connoisseurs, endowed with a natural minerality and an incredible capacity to mature for a long time. The grapes, in this case harvested strictly by hand, are delivered to the winery in 20 kg crates. Immediately destemmed and crushed, it is cold macerated for 12 hours. At the end of this phase, after a soft pressing, the must is passed into steel vats for the fermentation phase. At the end, the wine remains in steel for about 10 months, at a low temperature and in contact with its fine lees, for a refinement phase and to increase its complexity. This reveals a beautiful goblet characterised by a golden colour with greenish highlights. On the nose, the bouquet is ample and immediately calls to mind exotic fruits and sweet white-fleshed fruit. In the mouth, on the other hand, it is pleasantly fresh, enveloping and harmonious, with a long taste persistence. It is a fabulous aperitif, but also at table it always knows how to make a good impression. With fish-based hors d'oeuvres, for example, or with seafood risotto or simple platters of cold meats and fresh or slightly matured cheeses.

Founded by the first King of Italy in 1858. This inscription on the Fontanafredda website is enough to give a sense of a company that to define as "historic" is almost reductive. Fontanafredda was born out of a love story. It was in fact a gift from Vittorio Emanuele II to his beloved Rosa Vercellana, the famous "bella Rosina". Beyond this ante litteram gossip, however, Fontanafredda has always been a point of reference for regional and Italian viticulture in general. In fact, many curious records belong to this winery. The first vineyard in Barolo was purchased in 1866, and the first vinification took place in 1870. In 1886, Fontanafredda's Barolo wines reached America, and in 1887, the first cement tanks in Europe were built. Finally, 1959 saw the production of the first classic method sparkling wine, the forerunner of Alta Langa DOCG. The last step in the glorious history of this winery, after its acquisition by Oscar Farinetti and Luca Baffigo, is in 2018. Since that year, the company has been producing certified organic wines. Today, Fontanafredda, which exports to over 60 countries around the world, can count on a complex of 120 hectares of vineyards. And in its cellars there are over 2.5 million bottles of Barolo waiting to be put on the market. Long live... Fontanafredda!
