2017 Vigneti Massa "Derthona" Timorasso Piedmont

SKU #1442940 93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Walter Massa, the man who rescued timorasso from oblivion in the 1980s, now farms 30 acres of the variety and makes five different bottlings, three from single crus. He refers to this wine as his village-level Timorasso, combining grapes from many different plots, and he labels it Derthona, the ancient Roman name for the territory and a term Massa has trademarked, with the intention of eventually applying it to a new DOC. Like all of his timorassos, the 2017 Derthona aged on the lees in stainless-steel tanks, developing rich, honeyed flavors. The wine opens gradually, expanding into peach and apple tones lined with notes of roasted fennel and warm spice. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Timorasso remains one of the least known Italian whites yet Walter Massa has proven that it's one of the country's finest. His "Derthona" is a selection of fruit from multiple vineyards and represents his primary white wine. The 2017, is yet another stunner with rich honey, pear and apple flavors wrapped in a medium-bodied frame with solid supporting acidity. While the texture is a bit less than that of Chardonnay, the complexity and richness are attention-getting and pleasantly surprising to those unfamiliar.
