Derthona Montemarzino Timorasso 2015

Medium deep , straw yellow . Quite slow and wide tears . Quite aromatic , lychee and yellow stone fruit, touch floral . Quite ripe yellow fruits in the mouth , touch of passion fruit . Quite good extract , good acidity , quite fat on the palate but balanced and probably needs food . Seems quite young still , probably will age for another 5-7 years . — 22 days ago

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

Lovely nose. Peach fruit. Almonds. Lemon peel.

Palate has a bit of texture. Rich. Perfect peach. Delicious.

May be better than entry level Walter massa.

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2020

Update Day 2: I really liked this even more on day as everything grew on the below from day 1, the palate and the intensity all went up 2 notches! This exceeds the really good 2018 and should easily have the stuffing to age which is why this grape is getting so much attention in Barolo these days.
Day 1: I just tasted this last night, I got into a bottle and will see how it evolves over a few days. Preliminarily this is really good, better than the very good 2018 I last had at this stage, as it should be as it's a better vintage. The nose is med/med+, as this grape is typically more pronounced in flavor than aroma, where the flavors here are more med+. The coravin glass I had opened up nicely over 30 minutes, deepening with notes of apples and peach, a light background touch of honey and almonds, subtle and elegant minerality underpins it all. Med+ finish shows the texture this grape is know for in a med+ weight.
