The selected wines
Murgo BrutMurgo icon that I couldn't help but choose for you. 100% nerello Mascalese, more than two years of refermentation in the bottle. Bright and young colors tending towards a straw yellow, fine and elegant perlage. On the nose, hints of citrus and fresh flowers and iodine notes; great freshness in the mouth and a savory finish typical of the volcanic territory. The first Classic Method of Etna and a point of reference for the entire denomination, as well as a product that I am particularly fond of because every glass makes me dream of that mythical land .
Sylvoz - The CropsProsecco Doc Treviso Spumante Brut The grape harvest (100% Glera) takes place from mid-September to mid-October. The vinification of this Prosecco takes place with soft pressing of the grapes, followed by fermentation of the must in the absence of skins at a controlled temperature. The second fermentation takes place with the Charmat method with refermentation in an autoclave. A fact not to be underestimated: the grapes come from the surplus production of the Santo Stefano area. It is a wine with a delicate perlage and a characteristic straw yellow colour, an intense aroma that recalls the sensation of apple and pear. The ending is fresh. I challenge you to find such quality in one of his "colleagues"...
Furrow - PaltrinieriSemi-dry sparkling Lambrusco dell'Emilia IGT The maceration of the grapes (100% salami) takes place in contact with the skins for two days. Alcoholic fermentation and refermentation are done with the Martinotti method. It appears to our eyes of a dark purplish red color, with fine perlage . Intense notes of ripe fruit appear on the nose - cherry and black cherry are prevalent. In the mouth it is delicate, with great freshness and elegant flavor. If I think of Lambrusco, Solco wine is one of those products that best conveys the reality of the vine to me: that play in the mouth of dark pulp fruit and the decisive pettilant drive me crazy.
Murgo Brut rosé mc 2015Murgo icon : I couldn't help but choose it for you. 100% carefully selected Nerello Mascalese, more than 2 years of refermentation in the bottle. Brief maceration on the skins for this Classic Method of great acidity, with a volcanic minerality that distinguishes all Murgo products. The light maceration on the skins gives this Rosé an attractive colour , a pale pink and with a very fine perlage . On the nose, aroma of grapefruit and rose; great personality on the palate, with acidity and flavor that are the protagonists. It lends itself to interesting combinations: try it with salmon with dill...
Black Abbot BrutWhen I think of Abate Nero I have in mind his Extra Brut where you can fully appreciate the essence of Chardonnay (100%) without any "sugar influence". A deep, alpine, fresh and never banal Chardonnay. Traditional white winemaking with soft pressing of the grapes and first fermentation in steel. Second fermentation and rest on the yeasts for almost two years. Its elegance manifests itself from the beginning: here is the fine perlage , citrus notes and light exotic touches, combined with mountain floral notes . In the mouth it is a riot of almost infinite freshness and has a nice savory finish, a strong reminder of the territory.
Rive di Santo Stefano Brut “Gerardo” - The CropsThis is a sentimental wine, dedicated to my grandfather who passionately cared for his Rive, the vineyards located on the steepest terrain . Gerardo (100% glera) is born from the Santo Stefano vineyards, in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG area, with a straw yellow color and rich aromas of citrus fruit, but also green apple and pear with a beautiful finish of fresh flowers. Endowed with great freshness, the perlage is fine and striking for its persistence, guaranteeing a harmonious finish. I couldn't help but let you know!
