Italian Wines in the World: Almerita Contessa Franca Spumante Metodo Classico DOC 2010 by Tasca d'Almerita

We tasted for you Almerita Contessa Franca Spumante Metodo Classico DOC 2010 by the Sicilian winery Tasca d'Almerita


Italian Wines in the World: Almerita Contessa Franca Spumante Metodo Classico DOC 2010 by Tasca d'Almerita
Almerita Contessa Franca is dedicated to a woman, wife, mother and grandmother, who played a fundamental role in the history of Regaleali. Since 1830, in the hills of the Sicilian countryside, Tasca d'Almerita found a unique microclimate, with snow during winter and scorching heat during summer. Almerita wines represent a production philosophy, seeking their path through research of the territory and the vineyard that it represents, namely the Regaleali Chardonnay.
The year 2010 was one of the driest years, with abundant precipitations during winter, and the summer lacked the typical seasonal excesses of the Mediterranean climate. So the harvest had the ideal conditions to produce a great sparkling. That is how Almerita Contessa Franca was born.

Almerita Contessa Franca Spumante Metodo Classico DOC 2010

Wine: Sparkling - Year: 2010
Ageing: 60 months on lees
Designation: DOC
Grapes: Chardonnay 100%

Sparkling wines are having a huge success all over the world, we all know that. When it comes to Italian "bubbles", especially Metodo Classico (traditional method with fermentation in the bottle), the first things that would come to mind are Franciacorta (Lombardy), Trentodoc (Trentino), Oltrepò Pavese (Lombardy) and Alta Langa (Piedmont). It's hard to think of excellent Italian Metodo Classico outside of these territories. And it's actually a mistake, because there are extraordinary "exceptions", thanks to wineries that are able to make the best out of this style of wine, even in less famous territories. This is the case of Tasca d'Almerita, in our opinion the winery in Southern Italy that best expresses the complexity of Metodo Classico. A proof of this is Almerita Contessa Franca 2010, for us one of the most interesting Metodo Classico in Italy. A sparkling wine powerful and elegant at the same time thanks to a 100% Chardonnay grape aged 60 months on lees.
A mix of tropical fruits (pineapple and passion fruit), a citrusy note of orange blossom and bread crust. On the palate, it has an excellent structure and persistence. We paired it with home-made fettuccine and prawns and we made a great impression on our guests.

TASCA D'ALMERITA

Sicily was a backwater in the second half of the 19th century. But Regaleali was already looking ahead and aiming for excellence. Eight generations of our family are linked to two extraordinary places which are part and parcel of Sicily's history: the Regaleali estate which now stretches over 500 hectares at the very centre of Sicily; and Villa Tasca (formerly Villa Camastra) in Palermo, heart and soul of the Sicilian capital's social and cultural life in the late 19th century. Tasca counts have always spearheaded a can-do culture, being the first to introduce any innovations in farming technology and cultivation techniques.

Italian Wines in the World: Nabucco 2012 by Monte delle Vigne

We tasted for you Nabucco 2012 by the Monte delle Vigne winery in Emilia-Romagna region


Italian Wines in the World: Nabucco 2012 by Monte delle Vigne
Wine: Red - Year: 2012
Price (ex winery, VAT included): Euro 17.00
Yearly production (bottles): 30.000
Ageing: 12 months in French oak Allier’s barriques
Designation: IGT Emilia
Grapes: 70% Barbera, 30% Merlot

When someone's talking about Emilia region, probably the first thing that pops in mind is the association with legendary car brands like Ferrari or big names of the Italian culture as the one of the great composer Giuseppe Verdi. But Emilia is also the cradle of the Italian food and wine culture, starting from that king of wines, named Lambrusco.
Today Monte delle Vigne is one of the best producers of Lambrusco because it was able to give a new life and prestige to this great Italian wine. However, the value of Monte delle Vigne as a winemaker is beautifully expressed also by Nabucco (from the famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi), an original blend of a historical Italian grape such as Barbera and a more popular international variety like Merlot. Two grape varieties that found in Ozzano Taro, in the municipality of Collecchio, Parma, the ideal location to express their qualities.
Nabucco 2012 confirms its excellence in both strength and elegance that we already noticed at the nose. Intense notes of ripe cherry as well blackberry and blueberry, not to mention very pleasant notes of licorice and cloves that guarantee a valuable aroma complexity. At the palate it is very well balanced, even though tannins are still strong, giving longevity to this good Emilian red. The finish is long and it takes you back to that notes of red fruits from the beginning. Nabucco is born for food pairing, especially with the king of Italian cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano, aged 36 months. That is how we paired it and it was simply perfect.


MONTE DELLE VIGNE

In 1983, Andrea Ferrari began his business venture and founded Monte delle Vigne on these hills. This wine-making project is based on the belief of producing excellent wines working local vines.
Monte delle Vigne is rooted on the hills at 300 meters of height, which lead from the Po Valley to the highest peaks of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine.
The ancient route taken by pilgrims is the divide between the vineyards of white grapes of Malvasia and Sauvignon facing East and red grape vineyards of Barbera, Croatina and Lambrusco facing West.
They are interspersed with hedgerows and some semi-flat areas that offer Merlot and Chardonnay.
In the middle, the heart of the property, there is the new underground winery that allows gravitational wine pressing.
Perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment, it has been designed to achieve the highest quality results from what nature offers.

Italian Wines in the World: Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP 2015 by Tenute Orestiadi

We tasted for you Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP 2015 by the Sicilian winery Tenute Orestiadi.


Italian Wines in the World: Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP 2015 by Tenute Orestiadi
Perricone Terre Siciliane IGP 2015

Wine: Red
Year: 2015
Price: 13 €
Yearly production (bottles): 22.000
Designation: IGP TERRE SICILIANE
Ageing: one year in steel and bottle.
Grapes (%): Perricone 100%


We've been saying, for a long time now, that an extraordinary grape like Perricone needs to be valued. To demonstrate the qualitative potential of this Sicilian autochthonous, we highly recommend Perricone Terre Siciliane by Tenute Orestiadi, for us one of the most interesting examples of this style of wine. Not surprisingly it's made from vineyards located 300 mt above sea level in Bèlice Valley, in the province of Trapani, probably the best spot to enhance its qualities.
Tenute Orestiadi has been proving to be one of the most dynamic companies in the Sicilian oenological landscape. A company born as the result of the synergy between a cooperative of winemakers and Fondazione Orestiadi, an important Art and Culture Institute in the Mediterranean area, aiming to promote the identity of local grape through the union of art and wine.
Perricone 2015 is a fascinating wine, starting from its colour, an intense purple and an aromatic bouquet, notes of fruits, especially mixed berries, such as blueberry and currant, but also spicy notes like rose pepper and myrtle. At the palate it's smoothly tannic and intense at the same time, a good medium body with a licorice note in the end that makes it truly special.
We paired it medium aged cheese and it was delightful.


TENUTE ORESTIADI

In Sicily, island with a long-standing wine growing tradition, there are the Tenute Orestiadi’s vineyards, born in Gibellina by wine growers cooperative and the Orestiadi Foundation, one of the most important cultural institutions in the Mediterranean region, to promote the identity of Sicilian indigenous grapes through the union of art and wine. Tenute Orestiadi is an ancient name that evokes distant memories of myths and legends, that in facts in Sicily has found life thanks to Aeschylus, that more than twenty centuries ago wrote and brought to the stage the legend of ORESTES and the ORESTIADI.

Italian Wines in the World: Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG 2012 by Azienda Agricola Sordo

We tasted for you Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG 2012 by Azienda Agricola Sordo from Piedmont.


Italian Wines in the World: Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG 2012  by Azienda Agricola Sordo
Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG 2012

Wine: Red
Year: 2012
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 35,50€
Annual production: 4.500 bottles
Aging: 24 months in durmast barrels
Designation: DOCG
Grapes (%): 100% Nebbiolo


This Barolo succeed in brilliantly combining elegance and drinkability. The proof is that its excellent quality matches with its capability to be extremely easy to drink, even though the Barolo is a very complex wine. Sordo is a master in creating wines that are authentic expressions of their own territory but with an eye to consumers, and not just a niche of super specialists. Today Sordo, after more than half a century of history, is a prestigious company with 53 hectares in some of the best terroirs in Barolo. Their Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is actually made of the Nebbiolo grapes coming from one of those best terroirs, in the municipality of Castiglione Faletto.
A Nebbiolo that is undisguisable, starting from its typical bright garnet colour. At the nose the alcohol is strong but well balanced, with notes of mixed berries and cherry, but also pepper and tobacco. In mouth it's very refined with evident yet smooth tannins. A wine that states "you don't need to be strong to be important".
We paired it with a simple mix of great Italian cured meat cuts and it was a regal snack.

AZIENDA AGRICOLA SORDO GIOVANNI

The farm of Sordo Giovanni is situated a few kilometres from Alba at the foot of the Barolo hill, in the municipal district of Castiglione Falletto, in Cuneo province. With over a total surface area of 53 hectares planted with vines, distributed in the municipal areas of Castiglione, Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour and Vezza d’Alba, is equipped with modern plants for wine-making, storage and bottling.

Italian Wines in the World: Lugana DOC 2015 Fermentazione Spontanea by La Sansonina

We tasted for you Lugana DOC 2015 Fermentazione Spontanea by the winery La Sansonina, located in Lake Garda area.


Italian Wines in the World: Lugana DOC 2015 Fermentazione Spontanea by La Sansonina
Lugana DOC 2015 Fermentazione Spontanea

Wine: White
Year: 2015
Price (ex winery): 16,00 €
Annual production (bottles): 4.000
Designation: DOC
Grapes (%): 100% Trebbiano di Lugana

We had the opportunity to taste this wine during Christmas Holidays and it was definitely one of the best white ones: Lugana DOC 2015 Fermentazione Spontanea by La Sansonina. It is not "just" the winery of Carla Prospero, wife of the dear departed Sergio Zenato and mother to Nadia and Alberto, who were able to take up a heavy legacy. La Sansonina is actually a winery that gained, over the years, a more and more important space in the dynamic enological scenario of Verona, especially the one of Lugana area. This Lugana Fermentazione Spontanea (meaning spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts naturally present on the grapes) sincerely convinced us right from the first sip. To the nose you first get white flowers and then more and more evident notes of tropical and dry fruits. To the palate you get pleasant mineral notes and fragrance that guarantee extraordinary drinkability. We paired it with excellent swordfish carpaccio appetizer and it was perfect.


LA SANSONINA

Sansonina is a company with a 13-hectare vineyard that lies in the southern moraine of Lake Garda, near In Peschiera del Garda. In 1997 Carla took on a new challenge with her daughter Nadia, to painstakingly revive an ancient Merlot grape variety, launching the production of a red wine in the land of whites: the Sansonina.
2008, however, is the first vintage of Lugana Sansonina. In 2016 Evaluna, Garda DOC Cabernet, vintage 2014, and Sansonina Vigna del Moraro Verde, Lugana DOC spontaneous fermentation, vintage 2014, have made their entry into the market.

Italian Wines in the World: Maìa Vermentino of Gallura Superiore docg 2014 by Siddùra

We tasted for you Maìa Vermentino di Gallura Superiore docg 2014 by the winery Siddùra from Sardinia.


Italian Wines in the World: Maìa Vermentino of Gallura Superiore docg 2014 by Siddùra
Maìa Vermentino di Gallura Superiore docg 2014

Wine: White
Year: 2014
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 20,50€
Yearly production (bottles): 30.100 (nel 2014)
Ageing: on lees, after 20 days of fermentation
Designation: DOCG
Grapes: Vermentino 100%

With this wine we are located in the heart of Gallura, the historical land of Vermentino. Here it has found the ideal conditions to reach its highest qualitative peeks. We say it without any doubt because this Vermentino di Gallura Superiore docg 2014, Maìa (which means “magic” in the local language of Gallura, perfect choice), truly convinced us, to the point where we put it amongst the best we've ever tasted for this style of wine.
We are not surprised Maìa is the first wine ever produced by Siddùra, thanks to a scrupulous selection of every single grape bunch. The result is a wine with citrusy notes to the nose that give to it a lot of freshness, but also notes of tropical fruits (lychee and pineapple above all) and a light spicy note of vanilla. To the palate it is pleasantly savory, with great balance and a final flavour of bitter almond that makes it incredibly easy to drink. We paired it with a tasty spaghetti allo scoglio (spaghetti with shellfish) and we didn't regret it at all!


SIDDÙRA

Siddùra was created in 2008 following a discovery made by two entrepreneurs who found and fell in love with an abandoned but charming property in the heart of the Gallura region. The vineyard, located in the centre of the estate, has been built completely underground in order to take advantage of the natural insulation provided by the soil. The company’s objective is to produce wines which are identifiable with their terroir of origin.

Italian Wines in the World: Cascina Bretta Rossa's Case Nere Barolo DOCG 2011

We tasted for you Case Nere 2011 Barolo, the king of wines made in Piedmont by the winery Cascina Bretta Rossa.


Italian Wines in the World: Cascina Bretta Rossa's Case Nere Barolo DOCG 2011
Case Nere Barolo DOCG 2011

Wine: Red - Year: 2011
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 32,00  Euro
Ageing: 15 months barriques, 15 tonneaux and 8 bottle
Designation: Barolo DOCG
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

We met Giuseppe Ravasini, owner of Cascina Bretta Rossa, in a recent wine export tour we did in Canada and we immediately loved this man, true, frank and honest, who has the gift of irony and a long experience in the wine industry. Few years have passed since Giuseppe took over his grandfather historic winery, a remarkable farmstead (“cascina” in Italian) from 1600 d.c., in the tiny little village of Tagliolo in the upper part of Monferrato, close to the border with Liguria. In his wines you can find the same frankness and honesty he has himself. Like this Barolo Case Nere 2011, where Nebbiolo expresses its most authentic soul, starting from the colour, not too dark ruby with garnet hue. The nose has clear red berries but also more earthy notes, like musk and a pleasant floral note in the end. Oak is certainly there too (38 months ageing, 15 of which in barriques, another 15 in tonneaux and 8 in bottle), but it's not aggressive. The palate is well balanced but at the same time you understand this wine can age for a very long time. We tasted Case Nere during a fine dinner paired with aged cheese, and it was an excellent choice.

CASCINA BRETTA ROSSA

Since 1600 in Tagliolo, a small village in Monferrato, close to the border with Liguria, on a overlook of the valleys of Rivers Stura and Piota, Cascina Bretta Rossa arises. Here are grown the grapes we use to produce the wines of our family winery.
All our wines are Doc and Docg certified: the varieties include 2 sparkling Metodo Classico Alta Langa, white and rosè, that age on lees for at least 36 months; among reds Dolcetto Doc and Dolcetto Docg, wines of great drinkability and a natural tendency to aging. At last comes our gran cru Barolo, characterized by a long fermentation.
From a blend of Shirah, Pinot and Albarossa we produce Macatin, a full bodied wine with extraordinary flavours.
At Bretta Rossa we respect our grapevines by reducing the production in order to enhance the quality of the products. We feel like we are artisans that try to bring into the bottle what the vineyards offer.

Italian Wines in the World: Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore doc 2013 by Zenato

We tasted for you Ripassa, Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore doc 2013 by Zenato winery


Italian Wines in the World: Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore doc 2013 by Zenato
Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore doc 2013

Wine: Red
Year: 2013
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 14,50 Euro
Annual production (bottle): 150.000
Aging: 18 months in tonneaux
Designation: DOC
Grapes (%): 85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta

It is the first Valpolicella Ripasso which has recently celebrated its first 20th anniversary, one of the wines that are most emblematic of the evolution of a winery whose heart and soul for over 50 years have been territory promotion and local grape varieties. We are talking about Zenato's Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore, Ripassa. It has become a sort of "cult" brand on its own in the already rich oenological landscape of Valpolicella, a wine that played a crucial role in the making of the success of Ripasso, a style of wine that has seen an incredible growth on international markets over the years. We particularly enjoyed year 2013 because we found it very "fresh" compared to other years, usually softer and more rounded. We consider this as an added value because it makes this wine very elegant and easy to drink. Ripe cherry and black pepper are found on the nose. On the palate it's very smooth with a final flavour of brandied red fruits. We paired it with a traditional dish from Verona, Bollito con la Pearà, and it was a bliss.


ZENATO

The Zenato winery was founded in 1960 by Sergio Zenato in the heart of Lugana, in Peschiera del Garda. Soon it was extended in the Valpolicella land, in Sant'Ambrogio, where wines of great tradition like Ripassa and Amarone are produced.
Today, the company continues thanks to the hard work of his wife Carla and his sons Alberto and Nadia, who consolidated and expanded the project begun by Sergio. The company is in constant evolution, but its values are the same as always: the respect of time, the human aspect, the love for the land and care for tradition.

Italian Wines in the World: Siriki Syrah 2014 by Azienda dei Principi di Spadafora

We tasted for you Siriki Syrah 2014 by the Sicilian winery Azienda dei Principi di Spadafora


Italian Wines in the World: Siriki Syrah 2014 by Azienda dei Principi di Spadafora
Siriki Syrah 2014

Wine: Red
Year: 2014
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 15,00 Euro
Yearly production (bottles): 7000 bottles
Designation: IGT Terre Siciliane
Ageing: 2 years in stainless steel vats and six months in the bottle
Grapes (%)/: Syrah 100%

Francesco Spadafora, owner of our favourite Sicilian winery, has an ace in the hole with this great wine that everyone will talk about soon, in our opinion, because it represents one of the most successful examples of sulphite free wine. We already knew Francesco is a great interpreter of Syrah, which finds in Virzì its perfect habitat, but his first sulphite free experience shows us that his "being organic" facilitated him in the transition towards a style of wine that is very difficult to produce properly. His Syrah Siriki is made of grapes coming from a single vineyard located 300 m above sea level. No sulphite is added on the grapes, not during fermentation nor during the bottling process.
The result is a wine that has a great freshness at the nose, with evident scents of mixed berries (currant and blueberry), but also a clear spicy fragrance of rose pepper. In mouth it is very well balanced and rounded, and you can taste that flavour of ripe red fruits. We paired it with an excellent chicken curry stew. This exotic combination was definitely well worth it.


AZIENDA DEI PRINCIPI DI SPADAFORA

Francesco Spadafora is a winemaker and owner of the family company inherited from his father. The first bottle is produced in 1993 and it’s named ‘’Don Pietro’’ after his father, and in here is synthesized the philosophy that Francesco has pursued during all these years: respect for the person in front of you, even when this respect is not reciprocal, respect for the land cultivated in organic agriculture and respect for the organic wine, using very small quantities of sulfur dioxide, sometimes even managing to completely avoid using it. Francesco, who writes in the third person, because he believes that "Me" is often an unnecessary emphasis, is glad to travel around the world with his bottle to communicate his passion, but he is truly happy when he is in the vineyard, or in the cellar, working with his favorite music. This is Francesco Spadafora and this is the unusual introduction of a company, that though hard work and dedication, managed to collect many different prestigious awards and touched the heart of a large number of wine lovers.

Italian Wines in the World: Terra di Ginestre Bianco Terre di Cosenza DOP 2015 by Antiche Vigne

We tasted for you Terra di Ginestre Bianco Terre di Cosenza DOP 2015 by the winery Antiche Vigne from Calabria


Italian Wines in the World: Terra di Ginestre Bianco Terre di Cosenza DOP 2015 by Antiche Vigne
Terra di Ginestre Bianco Terre di Cosenza DOP 2015

Wine: White
Year: 2015
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 12€
Yearly production (bottles): 10.000
Ageing: Steel
Designation: DOP Terre di Cosenza
Grapes: Mantonico 30%, pecorello 60%, greco bianco 10%


It is always good to be pleasantly surprised by wines you don't know and that are not very famous. This is the case of Terra di Ginestre DOP Terre di Cosenza, a white wine from the winery Antiche Vigne. A small (only 14 hectares) and young (founded in 2004) winery located in the ancient Valley of Savuto, one of the most suitable sites for viticulture in Calabria. They started since the very beginning to invest on autoctone varieties of Calabria, such as sweet Magliocco, locally known as Arvino, Greco Nero, Pecorello and Mantonico. We very much enjoyed their Savuto Classico and this white wine convinced us as well. You have a clear perception of the importance of altitude in this wine (the vineyards are located between 450 and 800 m above sea level on slopes of 5 to 35% degree) which ensures extraordinary temperature excursion that emphasises the aromatic quality of wines, especially white ones. An excellent blend of Greco Bianco, Mantonico and Pecorello that gives us a very pleasant wine. At the nose you can smell apple and pear, but also tropical fruits (pineapple above all) and elegant notes of acacia and vanilla. In mouth there's a mixture of freshness and savory. A good structure and a perfect balance between acidity and smoothness. We paired it with a tasty rabbit roast flavoured with olives taggiasche and we nailed it.
ANTICHE VIGNE
“Antiche Vigne” is a small wine company in the heart of the ancient Savuto valley in Calabria, southern Italy or as the Greeks Enotria-a land once called it where vines grow and wine is produced. Since the beginning in 2004, our company goal has always been to focus on producing high quality wines. Company vineyards extend across an area of 14 hectares, located in the districts of Marzi, Altilia and Carpanzano the northern area of the Savuto Valley. In order to maintain the balance of tradition and innovation we have extensively researched both technologies and techniques to produce our wine. As a result we have been able to create a very typical DOC product made from local grapes such as the grape Magliocco dolce, locally known as Arvino, the Greco Nero, the Pecorello, the Mantonico and the Malvasia. These are all the key factors for the quality of our wines processed and produced within our own cellar. These typical grapes Magliocco dolce (Arvino) and Greco Nero are the basis of our red & rosè wines for both lines ‘Radici’ DOC/P and ‘AV AnticheVigne’ IGP, all well conceived and full of promises. The “Savuto Superiore Reserve DOC/P” oaked for 20/22 months then bottled and kept for at least one year in our cellar. The “Savuto Classico DOC/P” holds the flavor of natural taste after a long ripening time of 12 months in our cellar. The “Iuvenis DOP Terre di Cosenza” young and dry it has been created with the idea of a fresh flavor. The rosè “Gida DOC/P” delicate and fruity. A white wine “Terra di Ginestre DOP Terre di Cosenza”, precisely selecting the best local white grapes from the Savuto valley-Greco Bianco, Mantonico and Pecorello- completes the ‘Radici’ line.
