Claudio Mariotto Derthona Pitasso 2019

MCF Rare Wine

Claudio Mariotto is doing fabulous things with the Timorasso grape in the Colli Tortonesi zone of Piedmont.  Whereas producers like Massa utilize a denser, more flamboyant style, Mariotto's is decidedly more precise, aromatic and crisp.  This single-vineyard 2019 Pitasso is one of the best examples of Timorasso we've tasted in a long time.  It combines the broader, more textured complexity that the grape is so known for, with a racy, mineral-driven frame.  It will easily age gracefully for ten years, as well.
