Daniele Ricci's winery is located in in the Costa Vescovado area of the Tortonesi hills, a pocket once called 'Cascina San Leto,' which you'll see on his labels. This pretty, gently hilly region is one in the Piemonte that's only become a bit known in recent decades, as phylloxera nearly wiped out the white local variety Timorasso some hundred+ years before. Ricci's one of the producers who's reclaiming the reputation of this variety; his style is structured, colored, and bodied, unafraid of a more oxidative style. These aren't your 'normal' orange wines, however. This bottle, 'Il Giallo di Costa,' comes from Ricci's oldest estate vines, planted in 1986, with 90 days of 'submerged cap' maceration, leading to a sunset-bold hue, with minerals, salt, and stone on display. Special stuff; it wants air and absolutely to be drank with food!
