2018 Vigneti Massa Derthona

$61.00

Place: Colli Tortonesi — Piedmont, Italy

Variety: Timorasso

Farming: Sustainable

Walter Massa is widely regarded as the saviour of the timorasso grape.

For the last four decades, Walter has made it his mission to restore this wonderful grape’s reputation, especially as its vines were regrafted to cortese as it became the more fashionable grape for Gavi production.

We’re grateful he did as timorasso produces a unique and complex wine. Its racy acidity is tempered with age, yet even at four years old, this still zips around the mouth like a Djokovic backhand.

A story of fresh and dried citrus, blooming white flowers and minerality. Decant or pour into a big glass and give it time and air.
