Walter Massa

750ML

£18.60£25.00

Timorasso produces tiny yields of immensely concentrated fruit and, in the past, was overlooked in favour of high-volume producing varieties, until Walter took over his family’s farm on the steep hills east of Tortona and produced 500 bottles from a tiny 5-hectare plot. His holding has now risen to 20 hectares (very little is grown elsewhere), and so this is a great opportunity to taste a wonderfully unique full-bodied white wine style with good acidity that shows plenty of fruit character and a mineral backbone. Enjoy with charcuterie, fish, seafood risotto and Asian dishes.

Description

The Derthona is made from the Timorasso grape, a rare and ancient indigenous Piedmontese variety, which has been saved from extinction by the gregarious and outspoken winemaker Walter Massa, who recognised Timorasso’s affinity with his terroir.
