Timorasso, "Cifrato"

Appellation: Colli Tortonesi Timorasso DOC
Type: White
Grape Variety: 100% Timorasso

The numbers and letters indicate 4 generations of Daniele Ricci’s family that have been an integral part of life on the family vineyard. This is an extremely special wine that has been given additional natural attention in the winemaking process. This wine was stored underground in double mags, where it was dark, lacked oxygen and stayed at an even temperature for 8 years. No added sulfites. No filtering. This added a little “fizz”. This is a very unique product; only available this once. We received 120 bottles of the 1000 bottles of this special vintage that was made.
