Tasting Notes

Ezio Poggio Caespes Timorasso 2020 is a beautiful, terroir-focused white wine from Italy’s Piedmont region. The wine is medium-bodied, thanks to lees ageing, and, having been produced in stainless steel, it is the rare and aromatic Timorasso grapes themselves and the terroir which are the focus and which give the wine great complexity of aromas and flavours and great ageing potential. As with the 2019 vintage, citrus and flinty mineral characteristics dominate and there are lovely notes of white flowers, almonds, dried fruits and a little honey leading to a long, citrus finish. That and Timorasso’s distinct fresh acidity will find you reaching for another sip. Dangerously drinkable!

 

Azienda Poggio is currently run by the third generation of the Poggio family, siblings Ezio and Mary. In 2003 they started their project to help in the recovery of the ancient, local, white grape variety, Timorasso, which had reduced to just a handful of vineyards as people had left the Apennine hills of the Piedmont region for the cities after the Second World War. In 2008 Poggio’s first Timorasso grapes were harvested and, having joined the campaign to start an  appellation specific to their sub-area of the Tortona Hills, in 2011 Ezio Poggio Caespes Timorasso joined the new Colli Tortonesi Terre di Libarna appellation. The name Caespes comes from the Latin for soil or land and this wine is an expression of that terroir with its clay-limestone soils at 400m above sea level with its own specific micro-climate that helps produce particularly aromatic grapes.

How to enjoy this wine

This is a great wine for drinking on its own or with food, particularly with fish, seafood, chicken; the complexity and body of the wine means that it can handle well fairly rich dishes but anything too spicy might spoil the wine’s lovely flavours. The producer suggests “First and second courses, in particular aged cheese, white meat, seafood and fish.”

Serve at: 12 – 14°C

Producer's Notes

“Colour: Bright straw yellow. Fragrance: Intense mineral with notes of citrus fruits and spices. Flavour: The main peculiarity is its acidity: it is full-bodied, flavorful, structured and persistent.”
