More about the bar
What makes wines great is only the infinite patience of time, especially if you first worked in a natural, holistic way, conceiving and designing the vineyard as a harmonious ecosystem.
This is the philosophy espoused by Paolo Carlo Ghislandi and his son Riccardo in the splendor of the Colli Tortonesi, home of Timorasso: a great white, which owes its exuberance and its ability to evolve to a noble soil of marine origin, from thermal waters.
Loyalty and courage: from Ghislandi, also the first sparkling Timorasso. In the I Carpini estate, which has always been organic and now also certified Bio (not to mention the GreenCare recognition for the energy obtained from renewable sources), the vocation for great wines is based on the instinct that guides the winemaker in interpreting soils, seasons and varieties such as Barbera, which here achieves unthinkable results thanks to very long refinements.
Those that then meet steel, wood and even amphora are truly special musts, as in the case of the surprising Timox. Minerality and flavor: glasses that excite, enhancing the passionate research from which they are born, to become truly unique.
More about the host:
Victoria Cece is a food and beverage storyteller whose curiosity is somewhere deep in a bowl of pasta or a bottle of wine. A fool for history, you can find her reading up about ancient grape varietals or wandering around a little Italian town eating everything in sight, under her alias Slutti Spaghetti.
