Very expressive white wine as it is obtained from the assembly of white grape varieties, such as Sauvignon and Timorasso, present in the area. The combination of these grapes gives rise to a unique product for its characteristics, with a straw yellow color tending to golden, with a scent of acacia and hawthorn flowers, pear and tomato leaves, with delicate notes of flint, but with dry, warm and soft flavor. The remarkable structure supports the alcohol content and the strong acidity gives freshness to this wine even after many years.
Thanks to the exposure of the vineyards to the South-West, to the particular microclimate enjoyed by the vineyards that insist on a particular clayey and calcareous soil, to the processing entirely by hand, to the brilliant intuitions of the Barea family and to the wise advice of winemaker Gianfranco Cordero, in Tenuta Montemagno, today bottles of great importance are born, included in the top 100 of the best wines in Italy. As tradition dictates, the operations of harvesting, vinification and aging take place in the ancient frescoed cellars of Tenuta Montemagno, equipped with cutting-edge technologies. Here traditional wines with a strong character and decidedly new wines come to life and rest, such as TM Brut, a classic method obtained by vinifying Barbera grapes.
