La Raia

Gavi Cortese 2019

La Raia Gavi DOCG 2019: Light-bodied. Bright acidity. Clean soft fruit flavors of green apple, lemon & lime. Nice minerality with a crisp & dry finish. All in all, a satisfying & refreshing biodynamic Gavi wine (Cortese grape) at a very reasonable price point. Cheers🍷 — a month ago

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2018

Good white but is it textbook? Too new to know for this grape in Piedmont. Loads of SO2 as @Cathy Corison noted, let this blow off in a decanter in the fridge for an hour or shake it before you pour it! — 6 days ago

Terre di Sarrizola

Derthona Biancornetto Timorasso 2017

This is a sensuous wine. Candied citrus peel. Stone fruit, floral, and ripe apricot aroma. Sweetness and real body come across the palate. Brilliant golden hue. Given liveliness by its textural density not just acid. — 7 days ago

Lovely aromatics. More viscosity then I’m used to and yet the acidity keeps it in check. Great qpr. — 5 days ago

Vigneti Massa

Montecitorio Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2017

A wine that will divide the crowd
Valter Massa is the king of the timorasso
He has made the history for this grape variety and i was very curious to taste this new( to me) label
Wine needed a little warm up after coming out from the fridge before expressing all its complexity, even the fruit you couldn't taste when too cold
Colour is golden although had no oak ageing
Eventually we find peach and papaya very pronounced(perhaps mango?), but not overripen
Flinty, very mineral, a bit gingery, white pepper, coriander seeds and marvellous length
It might be seeming not too dry for someone, but to me it found a balance and i enjoyed it a lot
Very unusual, you have to be curious
