In de jaren zeventig van de vorige eeuw was hij bijna uitgestorven.Een handvol wijnmakers, onder aanvoering van Guasi Clemente nam de Timorasso in bescherming.Terecht, want de Timorasso is een eigenzinnige kwaliteitsdruif. Hij geef opvallende witte wijnen.

Characteristics: intense yellow color with greenish reflections; on the nose fruity hints reminiscent of pear, peach and floral such as acacia flowers and hawthorn; a characteristic note of honey is also perceived. After 2/3 years the mineral notes are more noticeable, in some cases accentuated by the typical hint of hydrocarbon, embellishing the wine. In the mouth it is dry, warm and soft, very balanced; it has no edges and in the finish you can perceive a good acidity that gives a lot of length and persistence to the palate.

Pairing: cheeses, white meats and cured meats.
