Timorasso? No, we had never heard of it before either. Walter Massa is the man responsible for bringing this ancient white grape variety back to life and he deserves a medal for his efforts. It is a creamy, lightly spiced, honeyed, intoxicating glass of wine, which is packed with citrus, floral and apricot fruit flavours. Derthona is the ancient name for the town of Tortona where the grapes come from.
