TIMOX Colli Tortonesi

I Carpini

Holistic, Vegan Certified Organic. Timorasso, one the most exciting wines coming out of Italy right now, is exactly that combination of native variety and specific growing area. Made with the grape of the same name, Timorasso boasts more depth, body and complexity than many Italian whites. It’s definitely not your classic light-bodied white to sip as an aperitivo. This orange wine is aged in amphora unfined and unfiltered. For this reason one can find deposits at the bottom of the bottle. Only 750 bottles are made each year.

Food Pairing   To maximize the taste, it is best to even reverse the bottle before opening, and have the sediment combine with the rest of the wine. Timox pairs well with risotto, antipasto (a traditional Italian first course made from olives, cheese, vegetables, pepperoncini, mushrooms in olive oil or vinegar). This wine can also be enjoyed casually with pizza and pasta.
Best served at a temperature of   10˚C > 12˚C
13.5% ABV
