the queen of timorasso
Elisa Semino, winemaker
La Colombera, the “family team” guardian of the territory
Elisa Semino owns and runs La Colombera together with her father and brother. Their engagement and dedication to the territory and vineyards, the production chain with due regard to the territory and an accurate work in the wine cellar have led La Colombera to be one of the most preferred wineries offering the Timorasso wine, the Colli Tortonesi’s legend.
Bandiera del territorioThe Timorasso grapes grow in a light and dark clayey soil and the Derthona is a long-lived wine - also over 10 years – showing an intense golden yellow colour in the glass
DerthonaThe evolution and ageing in bottle release intense tertiary fragrancies, where mineral and flintstone notes prevail, together with resinous and hydrocarbon scents.
A real native story
Pietro and Maria, Elisa’s grandparents, rent a farm on the hills in Vho. On their land they grow wheat, chickpeas and alfalfa.
The farm lives on its own economy : chickens, turkeys, a calf, a cow, wheat flower, eggs, milk and some rows of vineyard, only for family’s consumption. Their son Piercarlo is born.
The vineyard is enlarged and Piercarlo decides not to deliver the grapes but to make and bottle the wine himself.
The first Label of La Colombera is produced.
