The biggest merit of Walter Massa, a figure almost become legendary and considered by many colleagues as a master, was to rediscover a vine that threatened the extinction, Timorasso, sensing the great potential and obtaining memorable wines.
Vineyards Massa is the name of the family cellar, founded by Walter ancestors in 1879, which today boasts 23 hectares of property on the hills of Monleale, about 300 meters above sea level. We find the typical vineyards of the territory: Barbera, Croatina, Freisa and above all Timor- lo, which are reserved for 10 hectares. In line with the long family and territorial tradition, these vineyards are cultivated with dazzling attention and far-peasant farmer, minimizing treatments. Enemy of all forms of bureaucracy and always against, Walter is convinced that wine is made in the vineyard and in the cellar and not with brands and documents, why he chose not to use names for many of its labels, thanks to its well-established reputation true artisan of wine.
