Vignetti Massa Piccolo Derthona 2019
How often does one individual take something on the brink of extinction, make it flourish, and then have a following of people who also want to take that thing to the next level? Rarely, or never! That exact thing happened with the TImorasso grape and the Massa family. Timorasso was a disappearing grape in Peimonte, but Walter Massa saw how special this grape truly is - instead of relegating it to grappa. Their Piccolo Derthona has a few years of age, which gives it this amazing richness. It has flavors of mushy Anjou pear, flint, and a hint of nuttiness. The finish has freshness and vibrance. If you liked oaked whites, but don't want the oak, than this is what you need.
