La Spinetta Piccolo Derthona is produced from the Timorasso grape, a characteristic white variety native to the Tortona area in the southeast of Piedmont. Included in the Colli Tortonesi (Tortona Hills) DOC appellation, the variety is gaining ever more attention, both in Italy and internationally, for its fresh and mineral expressions. Situated in the far north-western corner of the zone, this particular viticultural area represents both the transitional gateway between the Po plains and the Mediterranean Sea and the very northernmost reaches of the Apennines, resulting in considerable variability in microclimate, altitude and soil type, key components of terroir.

The 2020 Timorasso Derthona is a phenolic, savory wine. Orchard fruit, almond, citrus peel and white pepper all open in the glass. Racy floral and tropical accents add an exotic element that is quite appealing,
