Description

Details of wine

The "Derthona" from the Vigneti Massa winery is an excellent white wine that has contributed to making Timorasso famous, the native grape variety of the Colli Tortonesi, all over the world. Vinified exclusively in steel, at the sight it has a straw color with golden reflections. The nose is floral and fruity, with mineral notes. The typical and most expressive characteristics of the Timorasso grape emerge on the palate: power, structure, complex minerality and freshness. With a long and persistent finish, it is perfect to drink as an aperitif, accompanied by cold cuts and cheeses. Also excellent with fish first courses

CELLAR

Name: Vigneti Massa
Start-up year: 1879
Cultivated hectares: 27
Winemaker name: Walter Massa
Address: Piazza G. Capsoni, 10 - Monleale (AL)

Walter Massa is an independent and courageous vintner who, from the 70s to the leadership of the family winery has managed to change and revive the wine face of an entire area, that of Tortona hills. The biggest merit of Walter Massa, a figure almost become legendary and considered by many colleagues as a master, was to rediscover a vine that threatened the extinction, Timorasso, sensing the great potential and obtaining memorable wines. Vineyards Massa is the name of the family cellar, founded by Walter ancestors in 1879, which today boasts 23 hectares of property on the hills of Monleale, about 300 meters above sea level. We find the typical vineyards of the territory: Barbera, Croatina, Freisa and above all Timor- lo, which are reserved for 10 hectares. In line with the long family and territorial tradition, these vineyards are cultivated with dazzling attention and far-peasant farmer, minimizing treatments. Enemy of all forms of bureaucracy and always against, Walter is convinced that wine is made in the vineyard and in the cellar and not with brands and documents, why he chose not to use names for many of its labels, thanks to its well-established reputation true artisan of wine. Walter Massa's production line is represented by Timor-louis, which by the name of Derthona has now been imposed throughout Italy as white wine typical of the Tortonese Hills. Nevertheless, there are even great red wines, produced with Freisa, Barbera or Croatina, it is in this case unique and unconventional wines, the result of skill and creative flair Walter Massa: real oenological pearl of an area with very high potential.
