Fattoria le Pupille Poggio Argentato Bianco Toscana IGT 2017Fattoria le Pupille Poggio Argentato Bianco Toscana IGT 2017
$19.99

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.

Inama Carmenere Piu 2015Inama Carmenere Piu 2015
$19.99

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.

Marengo Dolcetto d'Alba 2017Marengo Dolcetto d’Alba 2017
$21.99

Marengo Dolcetto d’Alba 2017:  Dolcetto d’Alba is a dry red wine noted for its juicy fruit character, low levels of acidity and mild tannins. This medium to full body Dolcetto d’Alba is a great and elegant red wine, typical of the Piedmont mountains. Well balanced and with the personality of La Morra wines.

This estate was established by the Marengo family in 1899. Marco Marengo, the present owner, manages it, very successfully, together with his wife Jenny and his son Stefano, a wine technician.
The vineyard extension is just 6 hectares, but 1.2 hectares are in Le Brunate, a grand cru of La Morra (and one of the greatest crus of the Langhe area) and 1 hectare is in Bricco delle Viole, one of the main crus of the town of Barolo. These two vineyards have belonged to the Marengo family for five generations.
Marco has an extraordinary palate: it was and is quite an experience to taste the wines from the barrels, first in the small and cluttered cellar in the town of La Morra and now in the new cellar that was recently built (the first vintage to be vinified there was 2011).
The philosophy of Marco is to respect what the vineyards give him as much as possible, the work in the vines is more important to him than the work in the cellar.

Vinification and ageing
Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, malolactic fermentation and maturing in steel for 10 months.

Cantina del Taburno Fidelis Aglianico del Taburno 2015
$15.99

Cantina del Taburno Fidelis Aglianico del Taburno 2015: Red colour with ruby reflections. Intense aroma with red fruit, tobacco and black pepper notes. Supple in the mouth with well blended tannins and a persistent finish with spicy notes.

Aglianico is one of the oldest, ancient wine grapes that we know of. It was brought over to the Campania region of Italy from Turkey by the Phocaeans 2,500 years ago, and there in Campania it made its permanent home.

Aglianico del Sannio (also called Aglianico di Torrecuso) is the main grape varietal of Taburno and it is considered indigenous because of the presence of vines that are more than a century old and of its wide distribution in the area. Other autochthonous red berry varietals, such as Piedirosso and Sciascinoso are present. Falanghina, instead, is the main white berry varietal. During the last twenty years, work at Cantina del Taburno has been focused on the quality improvement of wine made from this grape. At present the grapes grown by 300 associates (owners or managers of vineyards located in the Taburno DOC) are vinified at the winery and great efforts are made to achieve the best conditions for the highest quality expression of these historical varietals.

Cantina del Taburno, is located at the base of Mount Taburno, an inactive volcano, in the small town of Foglianise, in the province of Benevento. Mount Taburno is part of “La dormiente del Sannio” (the sleeping woman of the Sannio) so called as its profile resembles a sleeping woman. The Cantina was established in 1972 as a cooperative with 15-20 associates. In the early 1980’s it was acquired by the Agricultural Consortium of Benevento (established in 1901) and the cellar was enlarged with funds of the European Community.

Ascheri Barolo DOCG 2013Ascheri Barolo DOCG 2013
$38.99

Ascheri Barolo DOCG 2013: Matteo Ascheri observes, “Nebbiolo is the Piedmontese grape variety that did the best in the final part of the season. The warm daytime temperatures and cool nights of September and October were ideal for the development of phenolic complexity. The wines are balanced, of great class but at the same time concentrated and suitable for a long aging. I consider the vintage similar to 2010 but more elegant refined (like 2001 that I consider one of the best vintage in this area). In short, a perfect Nebbiolo vintage.”
