You can not define Col Vetoraz in few words: it is a melting pot of wide and enveloping emotions, quality without compromises.
Benefiting from a territory so unique for its conformity and geological composition is only a starting point for the founders of this winery. They are sparkling wine entrepreneurs, who are able to tell their feelings of care and attention to the vineyards in order to get to the tables of their loyal consumers with high quality wines, identified by the Col Vetoraz brand.
The sparkling Brut, that we tasted, is a striking example of finesse and balance. In its tasting glass its fine perlage lets imagine an elegant drinkability, bringing out rich and wide aromas of wild flowers and white-fleshed fruit with slight hints of citrus and tropical.
In the mouth it is full and enveloping, it recalls all the gustatory perceptors and then realizes them in a harmony without smudges, with such a soft finish, enhanced by the excellent length and aftertaste.
The combinations that we tried with this Spumante Brut were a lot. From appetizers such as omelettes with vegetables to fried lagoon fish enhanced by the cleanliness on the palate that this Spumante offered us. Col Vetoraz sparkling wines offer a traversal experience and they are aimed at the pleasantness of the company at the table.

Company Profile
Col Vetoraz is located in the heart of the Valdobbiadene DOCG area, at almost 400 mt above sea level, on a hill that is part of the well-know Cartizze hills. It is right here that the Miotto family settled in 1838, developing the vine cultivation from the beginning. In 1993 Francesco Miotto, descendant of this family, together with the agronomist Paolo De Bortoli and the oenologist Loris Dall'Acqua founded the current Col Vetoraz, a small winery that was able to innovate and grow reaching in just 25 years the top of Valdobbiadene DOCG production both in quantitative and qualitative terms, with over 2,300,000 kg of DOCG grapes vinified per year from which is selected the production of 1,250,000 bottles. A great respect for tradition, deep love for the territory, extreme care of the vineyards and a scrupulous methodology of the production chain as well as the production of large cuvées, have allowed Col Vetoraz over the years to obtain excellent wines and flattering results at the most prestigious national and international wine competitions.

Writing about Custoza and Custoza wine is like entering in a green oasis in the province of Verona. Set in the southern area of Garda Lake the appellation landscape is a mix of art and history, rural culture and traditions. Everything is embraced by the morainic hills where the mineral soil gives nutriment to the white grapes of this historical wine.
Custoza “Val dei Molini” 2019 is a selection wine of Cantina di Custoza, the Veronese cooperative which is the core of this appellation.
The pleasantness of this wine is in its variety and richness of fresh and well balanced aromas which evolve into fresh tropical fruit and a harmony of jasmine and orange blossom aromas.
A nose that invites the palate to drink, which always remains a surprise for its expressive linearity.
In the mouth the wine is surprising thanks to the fresh combination of acidity and minerality, harmonized by an aromatic length typical of the blend of the grapes that make up the Custoza.
This wine is perfect with dishes harmonized by a touch of extra virgin olive oil from Garda, such as pike in sauce with polenta or a fresh pasta dish with the typical broccoli of the area.

Company Profile
Custoza. The history of this name has distant origins, namely in the medieval Verona in which William Shakespeare set “Romeo and Juliet”. Today, those ancient lands, host our 1,000 hectares of vineyards, and their history inspired the founding shareholders to begin selecting the grapes to produce the first Custoza DOC, in 1968. It that year there were only 83 of us, and our beloved Custoza was born by an unstoppable enthusiasm, fed by the passion we have always felt for this land. In 1971 we produced our first Custoza vintage; for us it marked the beginning of a story that was destined to change our land. Today our winery can boast 200 winegrowers; we place 7 million bottles on the market each year, reaching no less than 19 countries in the world. By the selection in the vineyard, we produce our line “Val dei Molini” and “Custodia” “Terre in Fiore” is the ORGANIC selection of Cantina di Custoza, an ambitious project that was made possible by the professionalism of our technical staff.

The Drago e la Fornace winery is characterized by the constant research of local wines which are appreciated all over the world thanks to their history and tradition and their characteristic complexity.
The packaging, one of the strengths of this winery, is a strong message for the final consumer, who is driven in the choice more and more by the visual impact.

Scrivere di Custoza e del Custoza è come immergersi nell’oasi verde di Verona. Posizionata a sud del lago di Garda, la zona di questa denominazione è un’insieme di arte e storia, cultura contadina e quel sapore di campagna veneta addolcita dalle colline moreniche vere protagoniste dell’impasto minerale dal quale si nutrono i vitigni a bacca bianca di questo storico blend veronese.
Il Custoza “Val dei Molini” 2019 è una selezione di questa cooperativa veronese che da anni persegue l’obiettivo della qualità in vigna e che rappresenta il cuore di questa denominazione, avendo in sé l’anima di molti viticoltori attenti a preservare un territorio così pieno di fascino.
La piacevolezza di questo vino è nella sua ampiezza e ricchezza di profumi freschi e ben bilanciati per poi evolversi in aromi di frutta tropicale fresca e armonie di gelsomino e zagara.
Un naso che invita il palato alla beva, che rimane sempre una sorpresa per la sua linearità espressiva riconducendolo agli stessi profumi olfattivi.
La bocca rimane sorpresa dalla fresca combinazione di acidità e mineralità per poi armonizzarsi in una lunghezza aromatica propria del blend delle uve che compongono il Custoza.
Un vino che si presta a piatti solari, curati con un tocco di olio extravergine del Garda, come il luccio in salsa con polenta o con una pasta fresca con il broccoletto tipico della zona.

The company grew with the same passion and pride of the founder, but the thought always ran to the places where everything was born, the Veneto.
Thus it was that Vettorino, for all Vittorio, returned to the area of ​​the Euganean Hills to found his own court, a royal name that in Veneto translates as an area, the court in fact, where the peasant culture of the family that leads it lives and grows .
He took care of the local vines and those of Glera with the culture of many years, working a land that was ancient for him but at the same time new to what he had known in Tuscany, but the quality that he obtained thrilled him so much that he transmitted his enthusiasm to the whole family.

Its vintage Prosecco DOC Extra Dry has all the characteristics of freshness and olfactory generosity that are enclosed in its perlage, so fine and persistent. Notes of cedar and peach, mixed with aromas of white flowers, accompany the palate with a harmonious and pleasant taste due to its very well balanced sugar residue. In the mouth it is enveloping and with a good flavor and a pleasant acidity, with an aftertaste that is long and captivating.
There are traditional peasant dishes that give value to this wine, with polenta as a protagonist accompanied by local cured meats and some fried fish or vegetables.

Italian wines in the world: Ca' Ferro's Noir
Noir

Color:
red
Year of production: 2011
Annual production: 2500 bottles
Denomination: IGT Veneto
Aging: The Merlot and Cabernet grapes are harvested by hand when fully ripe. Immediately processed they are left to macerate at low temperatures in stainless steel fermenters, followed by separate fermentation at a controlled temperature never exceeding 24 ° C. Once completed the wines mature in French oak tonneaux for 14-16 months.
Grapes: Merlot Cabernet Raboso

The history of Cà Ferro by Ferasin Daniele is linked to the tradition and to the memories that belong to it, from when at the end of 1800 the forefather Sebastiano and then his son Vittorio began the company's history.
"Noir": the blend of this wine is played on three vines, which in itself gathers the cultures that have always been a meeting of languages ​​and sharing, in the specific case of this wine, are the three souls that compose it and that is "The exuberant" Merlot, the "polyhedral" Cabernet and the "sanguigno" Raboso, which, collected and processed separately, after a major refinement of more than a year in tonneaux, in a great character and value comparison, to then enrich of a harmony that the bottle, with the right amount of time, gives to the three performers, remaining for a good time to listen to their sensations and to make sure that they obtain the harmony required and today tasted.
Daniele's "Noir" wine is a further proof of the knowledge of both the elegant grape varieties of the Alps, and of those at times more exuberant as in the case of the Veronese Raboso, ambassador of a land that represents the peasant value that the company Cà Ferro has always carried within himself since birth.
The "Noir" is a meeting of cultures, which on the nose has the undergrowth of early summer as the first protagonist, providing aromas of red fruits and spices deriving from the wood and from that note of delicate and never intrusive vanilla, which derives from the good permanence in medium volume barrels such as tonneaux and 20 hl barrels.
Its alcohol content, "Noir", expresses it with elegance on the first sip, full and perturbing, juicy and full of aromas that are well delineated by the fabric of this beautiful dialogue between the three grape varieties represented.
Imagining him as a protagonist at the table, with spit-roasted or grilled meats, manages to give the whole company made up of noble and peasant experiences, which, together, tell the value and the capabilities of Daniele, who united them.

Italian wines in the world: Marchesi di Barolo's Barolo DOCG del Comune di Barolo

We have tasted for you Marchesi di Barolo's Barolo DOCG del Comune di Barolo


Italian wines in the world: Marchesi di Barolo's Barolo DOCG del Comune di Barolo
Barolo DOCG

Color: red
Year of production: 2015
Price: about € 46.00
Annual production: around 20000 bottles
Denomination: DOCG
Aging: barriques and large barrels, 24 months
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

The harmony of a wine comes from a continuous succession of intervals that, like in an orchestra, come together to create a symphony.
Barolo, obtained exclusively from grapes grown on estate vineyards in the homonymous municipality and produced by a historic winery like Marchesi di Barolo, has all the characteristics to be defined as harmonious and complex at the same time.
Its breadth is given by the set of characteristics and peculiarities of each vineyard which, although very close to each other, are incredibly different, so much that they perfectly fit in this extraordinary interpretation of Barolo, an authentic and noble standard bearer of Italian oenology .
The perfect harmony that characterizes the Barolo del Comune di Barolo 2015 by Marchesi di Barolo is the result of the constant attention paid first during accurate manual harvest, and then during the maturation in small and large wooden barrels in which the wine rests for long years.
2015 was an extraordinary vintage, which appears in its bright red color tending to garnet with a beautiful ruby ​​reflection and which shows in the aroma the most delicate scents of wild rose mixed with spices and red fruit jams that fill the nose in a decisive and balanced way.
In the mouth, the fullness and fineness of the bouquet are accompanied by excellent acidity and flavor, enhanced by an intriguing softness that fulfills the palate, leaving it gratified for a long time.
A wine that comes from history but that presents itself in its contemporaneity even when tasted with food: thanks to the great versatility it can be paired with simple agnolotti del Plin or richer gnocchi with Castelmagno cheese, and again with roasted game. The harmony remains, very pleasant, even in a glass at the end of the meal enjoyed with true friends.

Company Profile
The Abbona family, after having started the wine business in Barolo since the early 1800s and subsequently founded the “Cav. Felice Abbona & Figli ”, bought, in 1929, the cellars that previously belonged to the Marquis of Barolo and his wife, Juliette Colbert of Maulévrier, who later became the Marquise of Barolo. Today the company is led by Anna and Ernesto Abbona, with their children Valentina and Davide, whose mission consists of knowing how to marry "tradition and evolution" by combining ancient winemaking techniques with the ability to present Barolo in a contemporary way according to the most authentic and sought after trends in "Made in Italy" food and winemaking.

Italian wines in the world: Tenuta Montemagno's Invictus

We have tasted for you Tenuta Montemagno's Invictus


Italian wines in the world: Tenuta Montemagno's Invictus
Invictus

Color: deep ruby red with garnet reflections.
Year of production: 2018
Price: 19 euros VAT included
Annual production: 4320 bottles
Denomination: Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato D.O.C.G.
Aging: Crushing with controlled temperature and pre-fermentation maceration at 10 ° C for 3 days and later fermentation with light pumping over for 7-8 days.
Grapes: Ruchè grapes

"If someone offers you a glass of Ruchè it is because he likes you," says a famous sentence that expresses the culture of a part of Monferrato, where Ruchè is always drunk on great family occasions or in moments of celebration and where it has found his favorite abode. The origin of this vine, according to scholars, is Burgundy, and then moved, thanks to some monastic orders in this part of Piedmont, then becoming DOCG in 2010 thanks to the commitment and stubbornness of people who have always believed in this particular grape variety.
Tenuta Montemagno has contributed in an extraordinary way to the development of Ruchè, both for a creed of the Barea family in the denomination, and for the studies done by the professionals and agronomists of the company.
From this path was born the Ruchè "Invictus", which joins the already existing Ruchè "Nobilis" and it is precisely the Invictus that outlines the great potential of this vine, because the natural withering in the plant enhances the aromatic concentrations already so complex to make it unique in its kind.
The Ruchè has a very marked personality, almost impossible to compare it to any other red wine, and the production disciplinary, which only uses the aging in steel, allows it to have a deep ruby ​​red color, but in the case of Ruchè Invictus the anthocyanic notes are even more marked and intriguing.
The sense of smell amazes, hour after hour, due to complexity and frankness, to that floral impact of violet and pink thea violet that is harmonized by aromatic notes of wild herbs and wild mint, confirmed on the palate where the entrance, savory and very balanced, shows notes of peel of peppers and oriental spices enhanced by a softness that is the common denominator of the wines of the Estate.
Appreciated with baked quail or with plin with roast sauce, Ruchè Invictus will always prove to be a protagonist rich in charm and personality.


Company Profile
Tenuta Montemagno arises on Monferrato hills, a Piedmont area highly suitable for vines. The vineyards facing south-west, the microclimate enjoyed by this area with its clayey calcareous soil, the process carried out entirely by hand and the technology used in production processes, contribute to the production of important wines, representing, at the same time, the Italian, the Piedmont and Monferrato excellences in the world. The estate is surrounded by 100 hectars, 20 of which dedicated to vine cultivation. Every Tenuta Montemagno's bottle is created joining together the peculiarity of Monferrato ground, the brilliant intuitions of Tiziano Barea and the expertise of oenologist Gianfranco Cordero.
