Claudio Mariotto ‘Pitasso’ Colli Tortonesi DOC Timorasso 2018
This product is currently sold out.
During the Timorasso revival (from near extinction) in the 90’s, Claudio took over his family’s lands, began selecting the best clones from their vineyards and giving the best sites over to this fickle grape variety. As one of the few ‘saviour’ producers, Claudio has some of the best experience with Timorasso that there is. Timorasso is a unique grape in the Italian world of wine; inherently rich, fresh and powerful with no need for oak, complex and capable of ageing. 'Pitasso' is a bottling of just 2 hectares of Claudio's oldest vines with a SW aspect. It has extra layers of density when compared to Cavallina, further saturating it's acid backbone with stunning fruit, mineral and notes that could fool you into thinking it has been oaked with old wood. This would crush a lot of white Burgundy and is one of the finest vineyards in the region.
