Image is under cork but the wine is sealed with a screwcap. 

From the marvellous 2021 vintage, this is 100% Timorasso and it's best to analogise this as the Petit Chablis of Timorasso. 

All those citrus notes and the briney sea salt traits we’ve come to expect from this wine but with a little slate and a little extra minerality in the mix with 2021.  Unwooded but very textural - it's wide & long.

93 Points, Kasia Sobiesiak (The Wine Front) - "Charming start with limoncello, lemon curd, fennel, tarragon, salted almonds. Pear and melon and some umami type of mushroom note. Absolute delight in the mouth, zesty citrus, crunch, mineral tingle, chalky juice and lightly bitter phenolic finale. Pretty delish."

93 Points, Tom Kline (The Wine Pilot) “100% Timorasso. Fermented in stainless steel before six months on lees and designed for early drinking. Bright aromas of green apple, lemon zest, and melon meld with a briny saline savouriness and a whisper of sourdough in support. Fresh and taut through the palate, with lovely gentle green almond bitterness and limey tension. Lots of pithiness and freshness here, with length asserted by a piquant acid line. Redolent of Petit Chablis for its tight citrus fruit and saline drive.

92 Points, James Suckling (Ned Goodwin) - "The opening act to a wonderful suite of timorasso, perhaps the most fashionable white variety in all of Italy. Custard apple, jasmine, lanolin, quince and white peach accents waft across a generous mid-palate, with a skein of pungent freshness carrying chalky length while evincing a nudge of authority, apt for this sort of reasonable pricing. Superb wine by-the-glass sort of gear". Drink or hold.
