Massa is universally known as the Maestro of Timorasso — he rescued it from obscurity and near-extinction and now leads a mini-renaissance of the variety in the Colli Tortonesi. In the 1980s he worked tirelessly to revive the grape from becoming extinct, and thank goodness he did.  Walter Massa is the real deal: a contadino (farmer) with deep family roots in his native Colli Tortonesi who’s usually plowing his vineyards or buzzing around his cellar when someone arrives for a visit.  Notes of stone fruit and citrus following by a honeyed minerality.  If Chenin Blanc and Riesling had a baby, this would be it!

Grape: Timorasso, several plots around the village of Monleale.

Pairing: Spring risottos, roasted chicken

Soil: Limestone Clay

Farming practices: sustainable, no herbicides or pesticides
