Walter Massa is a legend in the Colli Tortonesi part of the Italian Piemonte region. He has single handedly revived rare grape varieties, and produced top quality wines from vineyards which were once deemed only good enough for vino di tavola. The Implicito is his introductory wine.
It is made from The Barbera grape, it has been made in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh fruit character. It has juicy red berry fruits, a touch of light spice and underlying earthiness, in a good way! It is really juicy and fresh, not unlike a Pinot Noir. It could be served slightly chilled.
This Valpolicella is ruby red in colour, with youthful highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes...
Balanced, smooth, fruity, with a well-rounded, pleasant finish. Fine tannins without being overpowering. Good weight...
