La Vecchia Posta 2016 "Poggio Dello Scagno" Derthona (Timorasso)

Poggio Dello Scagno, meaning “up near the stars,” is a site which is one of the highest vineyards in the area. “Derthona” is often added to labels to indicate timorasso wines of distinctive quality. Derthona is the Latin-Roman name for Tortona, where this grape is from. For this Derthona, Roberto chooses to macerate the grapes for 24 hours prior to pressing. The wine is then pressed and fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel. The wine is then aged in stainless tank on the lees with light battonage, after 9 months the wine is bottled with very little sulfur.
