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

Grignolino d'Asti 2020

Cranberry, strawberry, plum. Light and fruit forward. Great with a chill. “Chillable reds” are a heavily trending category in New York wine retail right now, for those in the industry. — a month ago

A full-bodied red. It paired well with a sausage meal, but would go well with pasta too. — 13 days ago

Cantina del Signore

La Crotta Spanna Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo 2019

N: Alpine woodland wonderland, it’s like bark, leaves, sous bois, with cherries lurking in the background. Some star anise and cinnamon.
P: Light textured but definitely chewy, strong in the mouth and long. Nebbiolo indeed. Tannins to burn with faint tar and lots of umami, savoriness. Gamy,
delicious. I’ve had it open for a couple of hrs. waiting on more. Later, dried rose petals in cherry liqueur. Second day, much softer.Lots of shoe leather (worn) on the nose.
Thanks @ FassSelections
