2009 Vigneti Massa Barbera Colli Tortonesi Monleale

6/30/2015 - rustyRudy Likes this wine: 91 points

Garnet. Chocolate cherries on the nose. Paired with Lasagna with Italian sausage in the sauce. Seemless match. Drinking well now. Integrated, nice concentration of red fruit, excellent QPR, and the few years of age has allowed this to come together nicely. Will want to pick up a few more of these to drink over the next year.

Short decant time, the nose has a strong cherry element as does the palate with acidity that is on the tart side. This is food fare, as a stand alone it does not have enough character.

We decided to venture off the Chardonnay path and Timorasso is definitely a road less-traveled. A native southeast Piedmont varietal, Timorasso is refreshing and quite acidic. We had some cheese and crackers with this luvly masterpiece by Massa...we think almost fundamental to have food with this wine. A very nice drop. Sadly, we have no more...but will re-stock for sure!

sempre sorprendente nel suo carattere definito e amichevole, l'allungo amaricante, la brillantezza e lo slancio, non finiriesti mai di sorseggiarlo perché, per definizione, non ti annoia mai.

Recommended by Andrea the sommelier at La Pineta, salty, a sea breeze, a touch of citrus, bergamot, beguiling. Very elegant and clean, aromatic, not linear but a rounder more voluptuous finish, a food wine, lovely with mixed, raw seafood.

James Q Wine Dinner (No Menu Boon Tat Street Singapore): A good opener for the an evening of tasting. Not stunning but has consistent flavours of ripe fruit, chocolate, coal, leather, tar. Its like a tune up of the palette before moving to the main attractions.

Its considered a baby apparently. And yes, I do believe that. The grape itself is very thick skinned and hence the tannin grape tannin that shows through on the wine - apparently as it gets older it starts to get like Burgundy. And I would believe that.

In Acqui Terme at La Curia. White from native timorasso grape. Peach / pear with minerality on the nose. Palate is slightly honeyed yet crisp and dry. Would be good with fish. **

Opened about 1 hour prior to serving. Pours a dark, vivid red. On the nose there's notes of briar, red cherry, balsamic, oak, and kitchen spices. Very big and mouthfilling on the palate, with still-young tannins. A bit volatile as it opened, this was still very fun and interesting, and quite unlike any other Barbera I've tasted.

From Magnum. Excellent bottle. Blinded I would have said "Riesling" because of the petrol notes. Mineral, start very vertical and fresh and thaen become rounded and complex, with a long honey finish. 14% alcol absolutely under control.

A private lunch (Restaurant The Clove Club *, London, UK): Quite an individual flavour profile and character, herbs, bitter-sweet fruits, roses, candyfloss, fresh but with masculine alpine bitters, has energy and weight, very good intensity and length.

Yellow. Subdued nose with a bare hint of orange zest. Light weight. This sneaks up on you both in terms of flavor and texture, starting out with a pretty neutral palatal impression but then blossoming with peach and citrus tones toward the end. Better than the first impression would have you believe.

First experience with this grape Timorosso. Medium weight, viscous texture like honey, citrus, with a slightly herbal finish. Very nice. Woould rate it a 91-92.

Wines so often seem to taste better in expensive restaurants. Maybe they are stored or served better. Maybe it's the food. Maybe the fact that you are being charged a 300% mark up somehow makes one's senses more acute. In any event, this was a minor revelation. Great nose of spiced honey and white flowers that immediately revived my senses on a Monday night. The palate is medium to full bodied with some real textural sophistication and an impressive array of flavours that complemented the nose with the addition of some stone fruits. A balanced wine of real elegance and charm that has the added benefit of being absolutely delicious.
