Whilst researching an article on the wines of Piemonte, and in particular the rare white grape Timorasso, I was searching for information on one of its leading protagonists – the legendary winemaker Walter Massa. Up popped a memorable evening, preserved on You tube, that showed more of the conversation with Walter than I can remember frankly. Go to Walter Massa e le storia del timorasso and watch my increasing bafflement and Walter’s eccentricity as we ploughed through his stunning wines from his cellar in the heart of Piedmonte.
