Roagna 'Montemerzino' Derthona, Piedmont, Italy 2019 (NV)
Many people associate Roagna with red wine production, Nebbiolo for days. But this wine is their secret weapon. Those who know about it covet their knowledge of this glorious juice. The fruit is coming from a region in Piedmont called Colli Tortonesi, home to the grape Timorasso. If you like Chenin Blanc you should explore this wine. It has a rich textural and oily component but holds lazer sharp acidity through the palate. A brilliant white wine from Roagna.
Pairing: Big fat north east oysters, lobster, mushroom dishes
Soil: limestone-clay and rocks with a high level of active limestone
