Fattoria le Pupille Poggio Argentato Bianco Toscana IGT 2017 is a Traminer and Sauvignon Blanc cuvee, adapted to the micro-climate of Maremma. Poggio Argentato presents itself like a white with a French tone, with a very feminine style, capable, with its pleasantness, of combining the sun of Maremma and the elegance of the great northern wines.
History: They have always been called Le Pupille, the pupils, those two farmhouses on the peak of two hills, turning their back to the medieval village Pereta. For long years there were no vineyards in the area, but cork oaks, wheat, mediterranean woods, the most classical scenery of a Maremma landscape of former days. In those times there was no recognized dignity of Maremma as a territory with great viticultural potentials and Morellino Di Scansano was a pleasant wine which surely did not aspire to compare itself with great Italian denominations. However, everything changed at Le Pupille thanks to the enthusiasm and intuition of Elisabetta Geppetti, a young student at the time, who had foreseen great productive potential in the countryside she loved, where she spent her summer holidays in her family’s house. Today Fattoria Le Pupille means 75 hectares of vineyards, over 500,000 bottles made every year, the presence in the markets of four continents and an undisputed role as Ambassador of Maremma.
Teso La Monja Romanico 2016: Tinta de Toro is a Spanish grape variety grown in the region of Toro. Its origins date back to Romans times around 2nd century B.C.
After the plague of phylloxera in the 19th century Tinta de Toro managed to survive this disease and many vines in the region are old vines over 200 years old.
As a curiosity, the wine made of Tinta de Toro was the drink chosen for Christopher Columbus’ trip to America. Fray Diego de Deza, original from Toro and private confessor of Elizabeth the Queen (Isabel la Catolica), knew about the properties of this wine (strong alcoholic content and a great capacity for lasting) and chose it for the trip of Columbus to the “Indies”.
In fact, due to the great amount of red wine, one of the ships was named“La Pinta”, because the cellars of the ship were full of this red wine.
Romanico by Teso La Monja is expressive, direct, and accessible, while still representing the varietal character of Tinta de Toro and the unique terroir of D.O. Toro. Well received by wine critics with 93 points by James Suckling as well as 90 points by Jeff Dunnuck and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
An exciting Kosher, Organic, Natural, Sustainable Shiraz made from Hand harvested grapes… bingo! It is made by Richard Harkham who named this wine after his grandmother. Her family moved to Israel from Iraq in the 1920s and she started making natural wines in Israel. Richard continues, now in Australia, the family tradition creating this wine that has been bottled without the use of preservatives or fining agents to convey the full flavors of the Hunter Valley and may show signs of natural sediment. The wine was produced without any sulphite additions yet its is made very much in the classic style of French Syrah wines from the Rhone valley.
Bodegas Cepa 21 Hito Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018: The word “HITO” means stone post, any element which serves to indicate the direction or distance on the roads as serving to delimit boundaries of the land.
Cepa 21 Hito was born as a young wine to complete the range of sophisticated red wines of a modern and innovative winery. Made with the youngest vineyards in the winery, grafted with Tinto Fino clones of the most emblematic vineyards of Bodegas Emilio Moro.
The flagship white of the Gai’a portfolio, this wine is bone-dry with strong character: full-bodied, well-structured with crisp acidity, distinctive minerality and delicate honeysuckle aromas. This white wine will continue to evolve for 2-5 years, as the mineral notes soften the palate will develop more nuanced flavors of fruit and honey.
One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution, Gai’a Estate (pronounced Yay-ya) was established in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos and winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Their mission was to capture the best that Greece’s indigenous grapes have to offer by merging traditional viticultural and production methods with innovative techniques. The estate is named after “Mother Earth,” in honor of the unique terroir that gives birth to these world-class wines.
The grapes for the Thalassitis (AKA “Originating from the Sea” in Greek) come from 70-80 year old vineyards located on the Southeastern slopes in Episkopi on the island of Santorini. The nutrient-poor, porous soils are composed largely of pumice; a uniquely harsh environment in which the native Assyrtiko is one of the few varietals that can thrive.
Perhaps, it is the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full maturity of grapes with considerably high acidity, despite the specific climatic conditions of the island. This fact is an essential factor for accomplishing flavor balance in dry white wines.
All the Assyrtiko grapes selected for THALASSITIS originate exclusively from vineyards in Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions. The vines in these regions are almost 80 years old.
The particularly low-yield that never exceeds 25 hl/ha combined with the terroir and the variety results an exuberant and nervous wine with a strong personality.
Enjoy it at 10oC with seafood, fish, shellfish or even lamb stewed in lemon sauce, generally with flavors of moderate intensity, where salt, sour or oil predominate.
A special feature of most Assyrtiko wines from Santorini is that despite their white color they behave like red wines! Try to age Thalassitis for 2 to 3 years at a temperature 12ο to 14οC and you will witness a change in it. Its mineral dimension will subside while the fruity and honey aromas will expand. Don’t forget to pour Thalassitis into a wide decanter half an hour before serving. You will definitely be pleased by the result!
Inama Carmenere Piu 2015: A new wine with a great personality. Inama is the first estate to create an important project with the Carmenere in the Colli Berici area and to give an identity to this variety with a new DOC: Colli Berici.
Carmenere is a variety that is often considered unique to Chile. However, few people know that Carmenere has been widely planted in Italy for a long time, and that in 2009 the DOC Carmenere Colli Berici (in the province of Vicenza) was recognized. It is in fact in the beautiful hills of this region that the Carmenere grape variety has found the ideal place in which to reach full ripeness.
It’s a vine that originated on the Dalmation Coast and spread throughout the Roman Empire in ancient times. This variety was grown especially in the Bordeaux region, and was long used in the typical blends of the area. However, due to its low productivity and difficulty of reaching full maturity (especially in an Atlantic climate like that of Bordeaux), Carmenere was not replanted after the phylloxera epidemic that struck Europe around the middle of the nineteenth century. This grape was considered extinct for a long time, until, only in 1994, DNA testing confirmed the opposite. It was discovered that Carmenere had traveled across the world, hiding in history. To the great surprise of scholars and growers, this vine was found widespread in Chile (where it had been confused with Merlot) and in the north-eastern regions of Italy.
About the label: This label was designed by Michela Coltro, an artist from San Bonifacio. The intention is to describe this wine, produced since 2005, at the beginning of Inama’s Carmenere project, as something young and lively, yet still classic and respectful of the style used for all the other labels. The idea was to design a cherub holding a cornucopia of fruit (classic figure) from which a bunch of red grapes comes out: Our Carmenere.
When it was formed, D.O. Priorat ignored twelve villages that belonged to the historic Priorat region and Cataluña. These twelve towns now form D.O. Montsant, a region tied to Cataluña’s culture and history. All of the vineyards are controlled completely distinctly and individually, in order to take advantage of the characteristics that the different terrains contribute to the Garnacha and other grapes. Similarly, the wine is vinified in separate, distinct lots separated by the zones that the grapes are sourced from. This extracts the different qualities of each soil – the fruit forward nature of the fruit sourced from the sandy soils, the complexity and concentration of licorella, and the structure of the limestone soils. The best lots of each vinification are blended after in order to obtain this unique wine, which demonstrates the range of qualities of the terroir of Montsant.
“Bright and youthfully energetic on the palate, offering intense raspberry preserve, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that show seamless texture and a hint of smoky minerality. An impressively long, focused finish features rounded tannins.”Josh Raynolds, Vinous – 91 points
