Derthona Sterpi Vigneti Massa 2021

Tax included

Sterpi is a single vineyard white wine produced by Walter Massa in the vineyard recovered from land where brushwood previously grew (hence the origin of the name). The characteristic of this soil, as in the most important areas of the Derthona denomination, is rich in limestone and clay with south-southwest exposures. Walter Massa, who was the first to bring this vine almost completely extinct from the pre-phylloxera massacre back to light at the end of the 1990s, has always imagined a free and natural wine. Its fermentations are all activated with indigenous yeasts. The wine is left with its fine lees for a period which in some cases lasts up to a year. Over the years, Timorasso has proven that it can withstand long aging and this Sterpi was created to show its highest peculiarities after a few years in the bottle.

Walter Massa and the Family Company: The Timorasso-Pioneer on the Torton Hills!

Vigneti Massa was born in 1879, today Walter is working on a property of 23 hectares on the hills of Monleale, 300 meters above sea level. The cultivated vineyards are all autochthonous: Barbera, Croata, Freisa but the Timorasso is the undisputed star of Walter who reserves him 10 hectares.

The thought of the company continues on the work of the fathers, a careful work made of common sense and agricoltural practices, with minimal intervention. The main enemy? The tightness of the disciplinaries. Walter firmly believes that wine is the fruit of the vineyard and of the cellar and not of brands and certifications, so he has chosen, as many as done before him, to leave the DOC on his labels and pointing at the undisputed quality of his work as a true craftsman.
