Timorasso is a wine that farmers in these areas have produced since ancient times, but only recently, in the late eighties, have re-started to implant. The bunch is medium-sized; is quite compact, elongated, its berries are medium-sized, spherical, with peel of green-yellow thick and tough; the pulp is fleshy and neutral flavor. The leaf, five-lobed, is not so great; is dark green with the lower part which has a slight fuzzing and with marked ribs. The petiole is long, green and red-purple veins. Productivity Timorasso is decidedly inconstant, on the other hand is quite resistant to disease and weather events. Its vegetative vigor is below the average of the white grapes. The wine produced is white dry, full-bodied, more alcoholic Cortese. Recently, the data of some tests it also indicate suitable for a quick aging.
The cultivation of Timorasso interested once a vast territory of the Alexandrian, from Novi to Tortona, and pushed up in Voghera in the province of Pavia, and is currently an authorized vine in the province of Asti and Alessandria, and temporarily in the province of Cuneo. Since 80's Walter cultivates timorasso and processes the grapes. He thinks that for this variety, the time has come to make some observations as a producer with a thousand reasons he believed in the enormous potential of this vine, and like to mention discussions with colleagues, lovers, researchers, older farmers, restaurateurs, wine shop owners, journalists about the meaning and merit of devoting energy to a vine, almost unknown, both under the profile of the wine market, in the historical moment when the Piedmontese winemaking reality was reaching with other varietals its proper dimension even in the wine field high quality white.
