Costa del Vento Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2015

Pale to mid Gold. Honeycomb, Quince with Apricot and a Charcoal note - wonderful aromatics which kept changing. Incredibly flavoursome with a creamy texture on the palate even though no oak ageing. Cumquat jam and apricot notes. A kaleidoscope of vibrant delicious flavours. Made from the little known Timorasso grape in Piedmont. Walter Massa was the saviour of this grape when much Timorasso was grubbed out in favour of the less troublesome Cortese to produce bulk quantities of the ubiquitous Gavi. They now grow the last few hectares of Timorasso in the world with minimal intervention, wild yeasts and no chemicals. Seek a bottle out for an exciting vinous journey. One of the 1001 Wines. — a month ago

The first sip of a timorasso from Valter Massa is a revelation!!!
I might be wrong, but Costa del Vento ages in large hogshead. However either way the 2002 magnum I had twice in the past is one of the greatest white wine I have ever had. Thanks
@Bob McDonald for this memory you brought up to me.🙏🙂

I think you are right s about the oak influence or lack thereof. This is the unique flavours of the Timorasso grape talking. I hope to source another one one day.


Masetto Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomitti 2017

Nice hey color. The nose is herbs, grass and friuts. The taste is apple and white cherry. Aftertaste: fresh, short but delightfully. Good wine. — 21 days ago

Terra Alpina Dolomiti Pinot Grigio 2019

Really enjoyed this PG. tropical fruit, guava, pineapple, even a little floral, with a nice acidic backbone to zip it up. Great on its own, works great with food. — 13 days ago

Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo

Collis Breclemae Ghemme Nebbiolo 2000

Stunning Altopiemonte wine! On the nose: blood orange, caramelized brown sugar, roses, a touch of tar, a hint of glossy VA that morphs into herbs, esp. mint. On the palate, excellent acidity, Rainier cherry, blood orange, mint, great density. On the finish: juicy, and builds to a suprisingly dense finish with a touch of grapefruit. — 21 days ago

Caespes Colli Tortonesi Terre di Libarna Timorasso

Perfect summer wine, picked up at Eataly Boston. It's the only Timorasso I've had the pleasure to drink, I still need to try the VIGNETI MASSA. Something of a cross between Erbaluce and Arneis (without the bitter almond finish). Bright and light, but with some slightly richer tropical tones... by no means a warm-climate white. Delicious! — 12 days ago

Vette di San Leonardo Sauvignon Blanc 2018

First time I have ever had an Italian Sauvignon Blanc and this one was really nice. Very subtle and subdued tartness that was extremely smooth. We went out immediately and bought more. — 13 days ago

Fattoria La Massa

Toscana Sangiovese Blend

Currants early on, with a fair amount of minerality to follow. The tannins mellowed and the wine improves after having some time to breath. Overall a nice and interesting wine. — 3 days ago

Zolla Salento Malvasia Nera 2014

Southern Italian goodness! Exotic nose with lots of dark fruit and spice. Interesting mix with tart cherry also evident and some chocolate at the back of the palate. Really nice smooth tannin structure. Definitely recommended! — 17 days ago
