Oltretorrente Timorasso Colli Tortonesi 2021

Timorasso is an ancient Piedmontese grape variety that was on the verge of extinction in the 1980s. It was carefully revived by Walter Massa of Vigneti Massa and now enjoys a resurgence in dry white wine displaying similarities to a really good, unoaked Chardonnay - richly textured with a buttery note and stone fruit on the palate. The Oltretorrente Timorasso is straw-yellow in colour and has a delicate and elegant bouquet. The palate is full and rich, but at the same time savoury and typically mineral. Crispness makes it lively, drinkable and very long.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

Excellent service

First time I have drunk The Torimassa grape. Delicious. It will be one of four that I will present to the 12 members of my wine society. The other 3 came from Berry bros & Rudd, Lea & Sandeman, Xtra wine, and Vinatis. We are a value driven wine society less impressed with famous names. Delivery was excellent, only surpassed by L&S sending their own van and driver,( in uniform). To be fair he was on his way back to London from Edinburgh. Best of luck
