Lacrime del bricco

White wine (Colli Tortonesi DOC Derthona)

2020 obtained the ***3 glasses award*** "Gambero Rosso 2024"

Derthona «Lacrime del Bricco» takes its name from the place where the Timorasso vineyards with which it is produced are grown. Bricco in Piedmontese dialect indicates the top of a hill; the name Lacrime, however, refers to the suffering of the vineyards due to drought due to the sunniest exposure to the south. It is known that vineyards grown in difficult situations give rise to high quality wines. The calcareous nature of the soil and the presence of sulphurous water springs give this wine a strong personality
