Italian Wines in the World: Le Bombarde Cannonau di Sardegna doc 2015 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma

We tasted for you Le Bombarde Cannonau di Sardegna doc 2015 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma from Alghero, Sardinia


Italian Wines in the World: Le Bombarde Cannonau di Sardegna doc 2015 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma
Le Bombarde Cannonau di Sardegna doc 2015 Cantina Santa Maria La Palma

Wine: Cannonau Le Bombarde Red
Year: 2015
Yearly production (bottles): 500.000
Ageing: steel
Designation: DOC
Grapes: 100% Cannonau


“At Santa Maria la Palma, there are no counts, barons or marquises. Instead, there are lots of families of winemakers and farmworkers. Fifty years ago, they were allocated a series of uncultivated plots near the city of Alghero. Rather than a silver spoon, they had strong arms, straight backs, passion, and principles”. We decided to start with this description from the company profile of Cantina Santa Maria la Palma, in our opinion one of the best Italian examples of evolved cooperative viticulture (over 300 members and 700 hectares of vineyards), to describe their Cannonau “Le Bombarde”, a wine that proved to us two very important things: firstly the incredible level of quality reached by this Sardinian cooperative; secondly that Cannonau can be a great Italian red wine, able to blend robustness with harmony and elegance.
Le Bombarde wine takes the name from the beach where, even today, we find vineyards of red grapes such as Cannonau and Monica di Sardegna. The cannons, represented on the label, are the symbol of the defense and the pride of the Sardinian coastal territory, but they are also the emblem of the strong and determined character of these grapes.
The nose is almost aggressively intense with fruity scents (particularly berries like blackberry and currant but also plum and damson). Earthy and spicy notes, like black pepper, are evident too. The palate is warm, full and velvety, very well balanced, with a slightly bitter aftertaste that makes it persistent and drinkable.
We paired it with a “classic”, a traditional roasted “porceddu sardo” (Sardinian pork) and it was an easy win.

Italian Wines in the World: Savuto Superiore doc 2012 by Antiche Vigne

We tasted for you Savuto Superiore doc 2012 by the Antiche Vigne from Calabria


Italian Wines in the World: Savuto Superiore doc 2012 by Antiche Vigne
Savuto Superiore doc 2012

Wine: Savuto Superiore Red
Year: 2012
Price (ex winery): 22€
Annual production (bottles) : 3500/5000
Aging: 22/24 months in French oak and then 12 months in bottle. 
Designation: DOC
Grapes (%): Magliocco Dolce 80% (Arvino) ,Greco Nero 20%.

Antiche Vigne, Gianfranco Pironti's winery was founded 10 years ago, but it's been enough time for this young entrepreneur to prove the value and the vocation of its territory. We are in the heart of Savuto Valley (that is the reason of the name of this small appellation), in our opinion one of the most interesting and qualitative terroirs of Calabria.
From the very beginning, the company invested in enhancing the characteristics of each vineyard (from Vigna Carito at 500 mamsl in the municipality of Altilia to Vigna Colle Pietà that with its 800 mamsl towers above the municipality of Carpanzano).
They are mostly old vineyards of Magliocco and Greco Nero grapes, the core of Savuto DOC. Among this appellation producers, Pironti is becoming one of the most influential ones.
We truly enjoyed Savuto Superiore 2012. The nose is very complex, notes of red fruits, cherry and plum, but also blackberry; intense spicy notes of pink pepper and vanilla, and earthy notes as well. The complexity mirrors the efforts in the cellar, especially regarding the aging in wood (for this one, 2 years aging in French oak barrels and 8 months in bottle). At the palate, tannins are balanced by the wood that makes this wine smoother and more enjoyable, with final long notes of fruits.
We paired it with one of the most delicious braised beef we've had in a while and that was a perfect choice.


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.

Italian Wines in the World: Kròz Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti igt 2013 by Villa Corniole

We tasted for you Kròz Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti igt 2013 by the winery Villa Corniole in Trentino


Italian Wines in the World: Kròz Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti igt 2013 by Villa Corniole
Kròz Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti igt 2013

Wine: Kròz Bianco
Year: 2013
Price (ex-winery): Euro 15,00
Annual production (bottles): 1.500
Aging: The Müller Thurgau and half of the Chardonnay are fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, while the rest of the Chardonnay is vinified in barriques.
Designation: IGT Vigneti delle Dolomiti
Grapes (%): 80% Chardonnay, 20% Müller-Thurgau


The words “mountain wine” or “heroic wine” are often abused in viticulture. But when it comes to wineries like Villa Corniole, they find their true and authentic meaning again.
Villa Corniole is indeed one of the most representative wineries of Valle di Cembra, a suggestive Valley in Trentino and an important area for mountain viticulture in our country as well. It is also a winery with strong “female touch”. Together with the owner, Onorio Pellegrini, there's his energetic wife, Maddalena, and his three daughters, Sara, Sabina and Linda. They are a clear demonstration of the importance of women's entrepreneurship in the wine industry nowadays.
A perfect example of “mountain wine”, in our opinion, is Kròz (meaning “rock” in local dialect), a blend of Chardonnay (80%) and Müller-Thurgau (20%), that grow on beautiful (and extremely difficult) terracings located between 500 m (Chardonnay) and 800 m (Müller-Thurgau) above sea level.
The breeding method is the typical pergola trentina and the vinification is partially in steel and partially in barrique (for Chardonnay). The result truly convinced us, starting from the colour, an intense lemon yellow. The nose is intense too, with notes of tropical fruits (passion fruit and pineapple mainly) and an elegant note of citron. Delicate scents of sage and vanilla are present as well. The palate is fragrant, well-balanced and it has that touch of savory which makes it extraordinarily easy to drink.
We paired it with an aperitif of seafood and salmerino trentino (a local alpine fish) that let us enjoy this great wine even more.


VILLA CORNIOLE

The history of Villa Corniole, a winery producing still and sparkling wines, comes from long ago, from generations of growers who have built and shaped, with commitment and integrity, one of the most striking landscapes of Trentino, the Cembra valley. In this alpine valley of unparalleled beauty and of great viticulture tradition, they produce extreme wines on a unique soil, which identify the mountain habitat.
What guides us is the constant desire to innovate, the passion for viticolture, the determination and care for our land which, with its crucial terraces, returns harmonious visual views. The viticulture of the Cembra valley is a form of protection of the landscape, invaluable to the territory.
The Pellegrini family are an ambassador of such beauty and majesty through work and care of the land in the production of Trentino wines.

Italian Wines in the World: Vigna Morlongo Bardolino Classico doc 2014 by Villabella

We tasted for you Vigna Morlongo Bardolino Classico doc 2014 by Villabella winery from Verona


Italian Wines in the World: Vigna Morlongo Bardolino Classico doc 2014 by Villabella
Vigna Morlongo Bardolino Classico doc 2014

Wine: Vigna Morlongo, Bardolino doc classico 
Year: 2014
Price (ex winery): € 7.00
Annual production:   45.000
Aging:  12 months in tonneax and then bottle
Designation: Bardolino doc classico
Grapes (%): Corvina Veronese 70%, Rondinella 20%, Corvinone 10%

If there's a red wine that nowadays perfectly encounters the characteristics of drinkability and instant pleasantness, that wine is Bardolino. For too many years some people, producers included, wrongly considered it the less fortunate neighbour of Valpolicella. Actually, Bardolino has a very strong identity, the result of varieties like Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone, that in this particular part of northern “Mediterranean”, the amazing Lake Garda, found the perfect location to fully express their fruity aroma.
Thanks to a never excessive percentage of alcohol, Bardolino embodies all the characteristics of an “old” and traditional wine, yet “modern” at the core, able to combine structure (not excessive nor extremely powerful) with elegance and refinement.
An excellent example is this Vigna Morlongo di Villabella that has sheer notes of fresh fruits. An explosion of red fruit hits the nose. Strawberry, raspberry, and typical cherry notes meet cloves. The palate is fragrant, very harmonious, with again a final note of red fruits that guarantees persistence and an incredible drinkability. We paired it a classic Italian aperitif of cured meats and cheese and it was the perfect welcome to our dinner.

VIGNETI VILLABELLA

Vigneti Villabella is the vine-growing estate within the Cristoforetti-Delibori group. It has its headquarters at Calmasino in the Province of Verona, in the heart of the Bardolino Classico zone, on morainic hillsides overlooking Lake Garda.
Founded over 40 years ago by Walter Delibori and Giorgio Cristoforetti, Vigneti Villabella is a wine- producing company that expresses the full potential of the area, creating unique, genuine wines, and operating in an ethically responsible manner, maintaining a balance between man, the landscape and nature.

Italian Wines in the World: Arzana 2016 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Docg Dry by Astoria

We tasted for you Arzana 2016 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Docg Dry by Astoria Winery


Italian Wines in the World: Arzana 2016 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Docg Dry by Astoria
Arzana 2016 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Docg Dry
Wine: Sparkling - Year: 2016
Price (ex winery, VAT included): 15 Euro
Designation: Conegliano Valdobbiadene Docg
Grapes: Glera100%

It is one of the most renowned and prestigious brands in the world of Prosecco. Since 1987 the historical family of Astoria winegrowers, Paolo and Giorgio Polegato's family, has come a long way, and today it is quite difficult not to find one of their bottles in any part of the world.
We tasted Arzana, a Cartizze Prosecco that seduced us and made us discover once again this extraordinary style of wine, which, for odd reasons, has had an alternate fortune in recent years. For those who have doubts about the actual qualitative value of Cartizze and about how this bubble represents an incredible excellence in the international sparkling wine scenario, we highly recommend Arzana by Astoria.
The wine is made of Glera grapes only, harvested and selected by hand in the vineyards of the limited area of Cartizze.
Arzana is a well-done Charmat method, creating a bubble with a nose characterized by scents of acacia flowers, pear, and crispy bread. The palate is velvety and enveloping with long-lasting fruit notes in the end.
We paired it with an excellent entree of swordfish carpaccio and tuna, and the result was extraordinary.


ASTORIA VINI

Founded in 1987 by an old family of winemakers, Paolo and Giorgio Polegato’s Astoria prides itself on the quality of its products. Astoria products are served in the most exclusive restaurants, wineries, and bars. Astoria sells wines produced at its own “Val De Brun Estate” in Refrontolo, in the heart of the DOCG zone Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Forty acres, located in one of the most beautiful wine-growing areas in Italy, renowned for its climate, highlight the harmonious succession of hills and vineyards. The Company links its name to the product par excellence of the winemaking tradition in Veneto: the PROSECCO; this wine, the Millesimato, was awarded several prizes over the years, including the prestigious Grand Gold Medal at the International Wine Competition at Vinitaly in Verona. Prosecco Millesimato Docg and Refrontolo Passito Docg are the house jewels. Astoria is not just Prosecco though, as it also produces barrique wines such as Colli di Conegliano Docg, Crevada and Croder, relying on the competence and skills of its highly professional staff.

Italian Wines in the World: Fòla Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2014 by Siddùra

We tasted for you Fòla Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2014 by the winery Siddùra from Sardinia


Italian Wines in the World: Fòla Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2014  by Siddùra
Fòla Cannonau di Sardegna DOC 2014

Wine: Red
Year 2014
Price (ex winery): 21,50 euro
Annual production (bottles) 9.500 (in 2014)
Aging: Lees in stainless steel tanks for 70 % of the mass Lees in oak barrels for 30 % of the mass
Designation: Cannonau di Sardegna DOC
Grapes (%): Cannonau 100%

Fòla in gallurese ( the dialect spoken in Gallura, in the northern part of Sardinia) means fairytale. And the story of Siddùra is somehow a fairytale itself: the company was founded in 2008 thanks to the dream of two entrepreneurs who strongly believed in the winemaking potential of one of the most beautiful yet harsh lands in Sardinia, the stunning Gallura.
In just a few years, from an abandoned property, one of the most interesting winery in Sardinia was born, a proof of the incredible potential of the region.
The soils are an extraordinary combination of granite and sand, an ideal environment for many Sardinian grapes, Cannonau above all. Fòla 2014 is an excellent example of that, testifying how complex but also enjoyable and drinkable Cannonau can be. It is made of Cannonau grapes trained in Alberello, on a hill located at 300 m above sea level.
The colour, intense ruby with purple shades, instantly got us. Red fruits like cherry, blackberry and plum hit the nose, at first. Then more gentle notes of Mediterranean scrub, especially myrtle, and mint come along. The palate is well balanced, mildly tannic, smooth, with final and persistent notes of ripe red fruits.
We paired it with an excellent spicy gulash, and Fòla proved to be the ideal partner.


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: Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna DOC 2016 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma

We tasted for you Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna DOC 2016 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma from Alghero, Sardinia


Italian Wines in the World: Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna DOC 2016 by Cantina Santa Maria La Palma
Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna DOC 2016 Cantina Santa Maria La Palma

Wine: White
Year: 2016
Yearly production (bottles): 1.600.000 (in 2015)
Ageing: Steel for 3 month
Designation: DOC
Grapes: Vermentino 100%

Santa Maria La Palma is the most interesting cooperative in Sardinia and Aragosta is the most iconic wine of the company. It is the perfect symbol of this winery because it testifies not only the quality of the work of its 300 members but also the great value of Vermentino di Sardegna, one of the most interesting Italian white wines. Aragosta 2015 truly convinced us, that is why we put it in our wine guide “Italian Wines in the World”, but we have to say this year 2016 convinces us even more. The nose is actually very gentle yet incredibly elegant, with notes of ripe yellow fruits (apricot and apple, above all) and Mediterranean scrub. The palate is velvety and harmonious with a long final note of slightly bitter almond. As the name suggests (“aragosta” means “lobster” in Italian), we paired it with a shellfish risotto and we couldn't have done any better than this.


CANTINA SANTA MARIA LA PALMA

At Santa Maria la Palma, there are no counts, barons or marquises. Instead, there are lots of families of winemakers and farmworkers. Fifty years ago, they were allocated a series of uncultivated plots near the city of Alghero. Rather than a silver spoon, they had strong arms, straight backs, passion, and principles.
The passion that our winemakers have for the art of winemaking and the painstaking analysis of the local area, which is treated with the utmost respect and constant dedication, these are the elements that allow us to achieve the best from our vineyards, that richness embodied by every wine we have ever produced.

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.
