Wine maker notes
It’s hard not to get worked up about Walter Massa’s wines: he had a vision for a variety nobody wanted, worked in obscurity for years, rescued the grape, and doesn't talk about himself but about the territory of Colli Tortonesi. When you get lost going there, start asking people 100 km out and they know and love him, from the gas station guy to the producer next to him. A prophet, a farmer, a philosopher and someone that you’d want to share a glass of wine with at your table.

Other text
Get outta here! Lots of native varieties are ‘cute’; Timorasso is way beyond that. Derthona comes from one of Italy’s grower-heroes, Walter Massa. Twenty years ago, this small grower decided to save the native grape, Timorasso. We should count ourselves lucky, as it’s turned out to be one of Italy’s finest whites: complex, age-worthy and grown around the hills of Tortona, or, Derthona in dialect. Fascinating wine!
