    There is nothing more exciting for a wine educator than to be introduced to a grape they've never heard of. I was introduced to Timorasso. Our staff tasted 5 wines made by this same producer. All 5 were fantastic, however this is the introductory wine that got me hooked,and made me want to taste the others. This wine had mineral elements to it, a fresh saline nose and savory herbs on the palette. No oak gave it that crispness I adore. I could go on and on but I don't want to be a spoiler. Just try it and see if you don't want to explore more of this grape.

    If you find yourself underwhelmed by the lack of variety of white wine grape varietals at restaurants and parties, like myself, and you'd love to try something intriguing; grab a bottle of this Timorasso! It's like many different things but like nothing else at the same time. Interesting tones of fresh cut stone fruits on the nose and you might assume you're into something like viognier or chenin blanc. On the palate the wine offers a nicely weighted structure (like a chardonnay) with a focused mineral spine holding it together (sancerre-like). The finish still offers up much of the stone fruit and minerality experienced to this point in the wine but with a solid hint of spice. I will be taking this home to try with family this weekend! I must explore this Timorasso more!
