Timorasso DOC Montecitorio Vigneti Massa vintage 2019
From a single eastern-facing vineyard in the village of Monleale. Marl and chalk soils.
Palazzo Montecitorio is the palace in Rome where the Italian Chamber of Deputies meets. An elder contadino in Monleale used to say with a mock-prideful air when he was going to work the vineyard that he was “going to Montecitorio” from here its name.
This is not your typically light and simply refreshing Italian aperitivo white wine; it’s one of the great white wines of Italy. Like all Timorassos, it’s got substance and structure and deserves substantial food, such as richer fish, poultry, and pork dishes.
Use it as you would an Austrian or (dry) Alsatian Riesling. It’s also an excellent vino da meditazione at the end of a meal.
