It is an ancient vine, yet the rediscovery of Timorasso and its elevation to "white Barolo" is quite recent. The character, structure and finesse of Derthona (the appellation of Timorasso in the Tortona hills) is incomparable, a paradigm that loudly expresses how much this vine is linked to the specific territory. From the vineyards of Costa Vescovato (Alessandria) facing south-west, comes this Derthona with a bright straw colour, ample in its notes of elderberry, acacia flowers, apple and honey and with a full, warm and persistent savory taste. The soft pressing is followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature. After an initial racking, the wines remain on the noble lees for 18 months with weekly batonnage until bottling. The refinement in the bottle lasts 6 months.

The origins of the Boveri winery date back to between the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century, an uninterrupted agricultural history for centuries and five generations. History teaches us that in this tumultuous period of time the status of agricultural work goes from being remunerative and central to marginal and disadvantageous. Yet, in 1988, Giacomo Boveri hangs up his training as a telecommunications technician, choosing to devote himself full-time to the management of the family farm. Over the next thirty years Giacomo set up the business with the intention, on the one hand, of increasing the company surface area, and on the other, of improving the techniques in the vineyard and in the cellar. The main objective, however, has been from the beginning to produce and promote wines with a marked territorial character, betting on native vines on the verge of oblivion such as Timorasso, Croatina and Freisa. Time proved him right. To close the circle, since 2019 the Boveri winery has been following the Passion & Reason protocol for sustainable viticulture, with guiding principles that look synergistically at improving product quality and protecting the environment.
