Outside Piedmont region, Barbera wine varietal is also present in the Oltrepò Pavese, on the hills near Piacenza, in the Franciacorta area, in Umbria, Campania, Sicilia and other Italian regions. It is also possible to find it widely in California and in South America, where it was introduced by the Italian emigrants.

Timorasso
TECHNICAL SHEET
 
Timorasso has not achieved international renown, many people in fact rightly consider it a “niche product”, with its forty hectares of cultivated vineyards and its local identity. These data banish, or probably protect, this wine varietal in a small portion of land near Tortona. Timorasso remains a “breath” of peasant life; it has for long been relegated to private homes, and to the local background.
