'Archetipo' by Ezio Poggio is Timorasso in all its glory; aromatic, with zingy citrus and spice, light florals, and crunchy green apple. Still very well structured, and definitely capable of ageing and developing more in the bottle.
Timorasso is a variety that feels like finding buried treasure. Indigenous to Piedmont, it produces some spell binding white wines, and yet very few (outside of Piedmontese enthusiasts) may have heard of it. In fact, at one point it was at risk of dying out completely. Thankfully this was not the case!
Light nose has the characteristic 'burnished metal' character of Timorasso. Good fruity attack on the front palate and great balance. I know from experience that Timorasso can age well and I suspect this example will too. Grip and persistence. And good acidity. Real texture here.
