CASCINA MONTAGNOLA | Morasso 2013 / Rodeo 2013

About 20 growers are known to produce wines from the Timorasso grape which is native to Piemonte’s Tortona Hills. This ancient variety was on the brink of extinction as recently as the 1980s but thanks to independent producers like Cascina Montagnola, this fascinating, albeit laborious, noble white grape is making a resounding comeback. Equally impressive is Cascina Montagnola’s flagship Barbera Rodeo from the farm’s original post-war era plantings.
