Vigneti Massa Timorasso 'Costa del Vento' 2015

2015 Colli Tortonesi DOC 750ml

Description

This wine is a selection of the best Timorasso grapes from the Costa al Vento vineyard in the Commune of Monleale, where the vines have an average age of 15 years.
 
There have been five generations of the Massa family working in the steep hills just east of Tortona to keep the flame of the Timorasso grape alight. Walter Massa is the saviour of this variety that was once the prime grape in Gavi, before the less troublesome Cortese took over. They now grow the last few hectares of Timorasso in the world with minimal intervention, wild yeasts and no chemicals.

Under the Derthona name of the label lies the words, “Un territorio, un vino, un vitigno”, which means “One terroir, one wine, one vine”. If it wasn’t for the tenacity and determination of Walter Massa, the owner of Vigneti Massa, who clearly believed in the tremendous potential of this grape variety, then we might not taste this exemplary grape today.
