    THE WINERY

    CLAUDIO MARIOTTO
    THE WINERY


    The Winery: Claudio Mariotto
    Founded in the 1920s’ by great-grandfather Bepi, Claudio Mariotto’s family has been making wine in the Tortona hills of Piedmont for generations. Today the winery is run and managed by Claudio, with the help of his partner Rossana, his brother Marco and his mother Piera. They have 100 hectares of land, 50 of which are planted with vines. Located in the municipalities of Tortona and Sarezzano, they work solely with native grape varieties, including Freisa, Croatina, and Barbera, but their real focus, passion, and the majority of their production is dedicated to Timorasso.
    Once on the verge of extinction, Timorasso is a native Piedmontese varietal which more recently, thanks to producers like Claudio Mariotto, is seeing a resurgence in plantings and popularity. Rather than opting for Cortese, which was the preferred white of the area, Claudio saw potential in Timorasso and made it his mission to showcase its ability to produce premium quality wines of distinction. Claudio conducted thorough research into how to manage this notoriously difficult varietal, and in turn has become a benchmark producer of this varietal, producing authentic wines, which really represent this exciting territory, with lots of personality.
    It rarely happens that we are all bowled over by a set of wines, but we certainly were in this case, these wines show concentration, minerality, complexity, typicity, and impeccable wood integration. A stunning line-up.
