2018 Oltretorrente 'Derthona' Colli Tortonesi, Piemonte, IT

$30

A contemplative wine from an indigenous white grape called Timarosso, with richness and concentration on the palate, offering texture and structure, that is cut down with a lean, mineral acidity. Pair it with the Vegetarian Lasagna Verde.

Milanese agronomists Chiara and Michele are the couple behind Oltretorrente (translates to countercurrent), which they started in 2010 with just 1.5 hectares of vines in tiny Paderna, on the steep foothills of southeast Piedmont. The slopes are so steep that machinery is impossible to use, so by default the vines are tended the old-fashioned way - by hand.  The couple has worked hard to restore their soil, going beyond organic farming to plant grasses, cover crops and loads of other plants to regenerate fertility.
