    Vigneti Massa’s estate cuvée, a blend of fruit from several single plots, including the historic Costa del Vento vineyard. Vinified and aged entirely in stainless steel and concrete tanks, without the use of barrels. Frankly, given the extraordinary natural richness, the intensity of color, and the sheer kaleidoscopic complexity of flavor of the Timorasso grape, oak would just get in the way. Superb varietal typicity here. A lightly honeyed nose with notes of ripe, sweet stone fruits on the palate. Lovely texture and weight. The perfect introduction to the Timorasso grape, and to the genius of Walter Massa.

    Our staff tasting of the wines from Vigneti Massa was truly a revelation! As someone who does not drink a lot of white wine, this introduction to the Italian grape Timorasso was an exciting new adventure. While it draws on some familiar tastes and sensations comparable to White Burgundies and Rieslings, this grape has a depth and character all of its own. This particular bottling was light, bright, with great minerality and stonefruit undertones. Slightly sweet, refreshingly crisp, this $25 bottle is a heck of a value and a great introduction to a new varietal and producer. Give it a try, and you'll want to know, and taste, more!

    Thanks to a recent staff tasting session, I'm quite intrigued by the Timorasso varietal. Hailing from a small region in Italy, and nowhere else, comes this mineral driven white wine with lots of bright acidity, and in this expression, a Riesling-like nose. This has lots going on on the palate with stone fruits and wonderful baking spice. While it continues to change on the palate, offering you hints of other white varietals here and there, no white wine I've ever tasted before, blends flavors and textures so well. Yes, you'll draw comparisons to other white wine varietals, like we did, but until you try it yourself, you'll just have to take our word for how much this wine deserves its own place at your table and in your cellar.
