Review

A real figure in the world of wine, Walter Massa is regarded today as a master of Italian oenology. The land and the indigenous varieties have been a first and foremost mission throughout his life, and his Timorasso wine, an exceptional white from the Tortona Hills, between the Piemonte and Lombardy, has become a cult wine in Italy. An opponent of guides and classifications, Walter Massa has engaged in his work by showing exceptional creativity and great loyalty to the vineyards and their sustainability, with the aim of delivering with every single bottle the highest quality and maximum representation of the terroir and the vine.

This masterly rediscoverer of vines could not escape that is, after Timorasso and Barbera, the third great historical grape of the Tortorna area: Croatina. A wine of peasant origin, Croatina is produced by Walter Massa with an almost aristocratic verve. Suffice it to say that Pertichetta, after spontaneous fermentation in steel, rests for one year in wood of various types and for two years in the bottle before being sold. A clear sign of how Croatina, if made well, can produce one of the longest-lasting wines in the area.

Pertichetta is a full-bodied and intense red wine, with an intense ruby ​​colour tending towards garnet. The nose highlights complex notes of ripe fruit, bergamot, spices, tobacco and humus: a balsamic ensemble of beautiful persistence and intensity. On the palate it broad, fresh, full-bodied, with great structure, power and vivid tannins, certainly with many years ahead. Excellent with agnolotti “al plin”, stewed red meats, grilled roasted meats, stuffed guinea fowl, aged cheeses.

Really excellent for the price.

Recommended by sommelier at top Italian restaurant in London and, after trying it, I looked for it online. Service from Italvinus is first class.
