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.

Roero Arneis 2018

Not sure if I've been here before.... This has potential, but needs time... At least.

Flint, ash, rose, white pepper, and only a hint of strawberry on the nose.

More red fruit on the palate, including strawberry and red cherry. Sour red cherry. Tannins are very nice at medium plus. Alcohol at medium plus. Acidity is medium. This can certainly be expected to improve with ageing, but I'm concerned that the fruit is not still dominant at only two years in.

Purple, highly extracted pigment. Eucalyptus, spice and cherry notes in nose. Cherry and raspberry flavors emerges after an hour. Needs decanting and patience. Black licorice aroma and flavor emerge after two hours. — a month ago
