Product Description: The Reis Timorasso sits on the rich end of the white wine spectrum. The first smell gives away a complex mix of ripe nectarine and lemon juice, hay, oyster shell salinity, and green mango sap. It has a generously layered palate combining a sprightly acidity with intense flavours of ripe stone fruit, dried dill, warm gravel, some sweet spices and a distinct pineapple tongue-numbing sensation. So much intrigue and a very wholesome finish with a lasting impression. Pair this one with seafood, risotto or antipasto dishes.
Producer Name: Reis
Region: Neviglie, Piedmont
Producer Info: Reis is the brainchild of our dear friend, Simone Revello and his five Piemontese best friends. Simone is the youngest generation in his long lineage of grape growers and winemakers. This meant they wanted to nod to their region’s history by unearthing the grape varietal, Timorasso’s full potential and give it the attention that it deserves.
In late 2019, the wine passionate squad pressed off the liquid from their first harvest and were unsure if it would even be bottled and commercially sold at all, the scale of it was so small. After a two-year mandatory bottle ageing period, we are thrilled to receive a small allocation of this rarity, aka Piedmont’s best kept secret.
