    Vigneti Massa is one of my absolute favorite Italian vintners and I was more than excited to see not only his entry level wines in the store but his cru's as well. He's responsible for single handedly saving this wonderful grape from extinction in Piemonte. I hadn't had the pleasure of tasting the single vineyard site Timorasso's until today and they are phenomenal! The Montecitorio is fresh, clean, textured and aromatic all at once. There's a flinty mineral note, honey, honeysuckle and saline jumping out of the glass. The wine has oomph! It's got a weighty texture but the acidity is almost electric. If you can manage to keep your hands off of it, it could cellar for quite some time and would only get better with age. Fans of Chenin Blanc, unoaked Chardonnay or Alsatian Riesling should definitely give this grape a try!
