Lubaco of Terracruda

The sumptuous aleatico of the Marches

We continue our journey among the Oenological Excellencies of Italy with a wine coming from the Pesarese. The Terracruda Winery presents a label produced by the Aleatico grape (better known in these parts as Pergola). Today
we return to a company already known to us, Cantina Terracruda di Luca avenanti to taste a wine linked to the territorial tradition of a wine-growing region of rich enoic wonders. In the
ancient city of Pergola the homonymous Vine represented a progenitor of the present Aleatico. The vine is ecclectic, so that its cultivation in addition to the Etruscan time, is versatile for any latitude. This makes it particularly resistant to any climatic conditions; However, it expresses its best characteristics only in detrminate zones and in particularly favourable conditions of our peninsula. The pedoclimatic environment of the land owned by the winery today, guarantees very high quality standards useful to obtain a product recognized and emblazoned in the best international fairs. The
goblet presents a vivid red colour that turns, with certain shades of light, almost to blue; Its consistency is wonderful, but what is surprising in a predominant way is the aroma that it emits during the olfactory exam. A long spiced persistence, toasted, with rounded toes of an infinity aroma. Imposing veils of ripe fruit and red flowers caress the walls of our goblet. In
the mouth there are strong fruity and floral emotions; Around there are sharp spices, long, decisive, almost toasted with warm and outgoing hints. A vortex of sensations and an amazing length for a label matched with a game plate that enhances its qualities. Terracruda is
an emblaroned company that emphasizes the local ampelographical character and seeks to enhance the territory of our country for the internationalization of Made in Italy. read more

The sensory experience of an indigenous vine of Abruzzo

Century IX, from the acute landscapes of the Abruzzesi Mountains, to the Adriatic coast.

Symbiosis with the Earth, water, sun, and the relationship between nature and man are the main values of a company that was born near the abbey of San Clemente, which around the year 900 A.D. He controlled the whole territory. An abbey that represented the identity of a territory and the identity of the inhabitants of that area since the time of Louis II, great-grandson of Charlemagne. From these lands, native vines are born and grow and we have the pleasure to sponsor. A work of dedication on the part of a winemaker who loves the values and traditions of Abruzzo. Today we start with a vine emblem of the Panorama ampelographic Abruzzo: The Montepulciano of Abruzzo. This wine preserves the love for one's own land in the bottle. A wine impetuous in the sense of smell and taste, fills the taster with emotions. Every single drop that pervades our palate takes possession of our sensations. The fruity is singular, with bitter peaks of the fruit just overripe with plum or cherry. A slight undergrowth foretells a feeble spicy. Soft with a frivolous and light acidity, it spreads to the palate with persistence. A sip is not enough to soothe the desire to be submerged by pleasant sensations, the sense of belonging to the values of home, the feelings of the family and the depth of roots that want to convey love to the future. The spicy finale embraces every single retro-olfactory sensation; A mature floral satiates the palate with an austere finale of violets, red roses, iris. Abruzzo is the birthplace of an important company, which works with dedication and passion, but above all it manages to convey feelings and empathy to the new generations; Values that the world of work often forgets inexorably. read more

6 de 7, for us is 10 and praise

The garage wine of the province of Toledo 6 de 7 is a wine that preserves an absolute austerity. Deep to the taste, of an excellent softness, with a bitter touch at the bottom of the taste buds. The sound of the smells succeeds in giving a fabulous wind of emotions, from delicate astringency to an acute softness. We are back in the province of Toledo, in a small town where our producers of garage wine sin primarily occupy the nature and its preservation. The idea of starting to produce wine was born, at the beginning, as a natural consequence of a family tradition. Zero herbicides, zero weed killers, zero external chemical agents and above all zero sulphites. A production limited to a few hundred bottles from a vineyard of about 50 years. The vine is the Cencibel, a native Spanish Vine, famous for its resistance to the Aridocultura. The nose looks youthful and sober, almost jaunty, a beautiful and good deception for the palate of the most experienced taster. At the first sip the sensation is completely opposite. A stream of persistent flavors awaken sensations that are particularly daring, almost surprising. The wine already has its experience and maturity: almost overripe fruit, a long spicy, almost slightly spicy, a pinwheel of flavoring a little ' damp, a little ' undergrowth, alternating flowers and fruit with red flesh. Soft and long at the same time, with a very gentle background acidity, almost to want to stop the fruity and floral asces of the SIP. The artisan wine is the future of the world wine. The times will come back when our palates will begin to appreciate and sponsor the wines, fruit of the work of Man and the ambientin synergy between them. In order to be sustainable and to ensure a better world for our children, we must rethink our productive style.

The simplicity of the life of the time is reflected in his words almost to want to highlight the dilation of the days spent in the shade of a fig to sip an excellent wine of the Place. Agresti poems that put on display the village reality of a particularly sad period with its apical outfit in the first great war.

A fulgid wine and essential almost like the tales of the poet Montanaru. An austere and contemptuous wine, strong of the vigorous armor of a young tannin. Pleasant fruity scents, Long spicy notes, young people chase each other like children in The Hague in the carefree way of their boyhood. A soft tone, almost impereable, lurks for a short time on the Palate. The Retronasali streets are full of sensations and scents that are dancing. A rich dish of stewed pork collects all the contrasts of our tailer. An emerging and niche label; A particular wine like the territory of provenance, rich of mystery, of naturalness, of Passions.

A wine that speaks also to the layers

Simplicity is the art of the serious craftsman when it comes to wines, they feed the most disparate clichés. Then Hyperbolas and anecdotes recall each other in the most heated discussions; Kind of like when two butterflies chase each other in the air. Some more imaginative, others dictated by the sensationalism of the mass-media, so the consumer loses the compass, and then the classic of the clichés is: everyone drinks what pleases them. For us it is not true: you have to look for wine as good as tasting today. Its craftsmanship is important, because it hides the essence of simplicity; Because nature is simple in its complexity of living organism. Today we have in tasting what means simplicity of a craftsman who transmits passion and courage in his products. A youthful mark, in a land often remembered for the "usual labels". The land of Asti has important blazons and emerge in the middle of the Giants is difficult for the small producer. This is the case of Emilio Vada that produces excellent wines, particular in the olfactory and gustative expressions, but above all produces the so-called good wine, outside the clichés. A large and sparkling floral bouquet is the omen that this wine will also indulge the most critical palate. Pink and violets just watered give off long hints. A veiled nod of red fruit, just ripe, ready to be eaten; Seasonal red fruit that sickthe taster. Good balance, acidity and freshness combined with a good softness for this young wine. The delicate tannin lays on a lingering reverb of raspberry. The good wine of the peasant, craftsman of nature, is the correct expression that embodies this product. A different and alternative Piedmontese wine, like the Italian ampelographic nature that everyone envied in the world. https://www.emiliovada.com/you invite readers to contact us at the e-mail address info@ilpizzicodelgallo.it to have the wine tasting card just described read more

The heroic Paul, the story, his wine

Life of a vine grower, tailor of the Oriental hills to cultivate on this handkerchief of land must be true craftsmen. The prominent hills the sea and behind the Alps are a difficult ground for the farmer. The man shaped the outline of the hills; As a true tailor has managed to make this strip of land effective even for the crops. Our tailor is called Paolo Rodaro, now a guest of our address book. Once the harvest was a family thing. We met, we worked together until the early hours of dawn, they shared all the moments of the day, including the meal of Mezzodì. He would return to work until the light had vanished completely and his eyes could no longer recognize the bunch of grapes at dusk. Today the wine is fashionable. We do not like this; So we continue those family traditions that keep the values anchored to this beloved land. The Friulano wine tasting belongs to the line "flower label" which symbolizes this relationship man-nature fundamental, today undermined by the evolution of unbridled consumerism. This indigenous grape of the Friuli region manages to roost in the goblet; To the sight a bright and jaunty golden; Lively and romantic in its evolving floral to the nose. Veed aroma, sensations of fresh grass, good flavor. In addition to the taste, a daring persistence is emitted, and a sensational freshness with pleasantly citrus returns. Against the logic of the market, against the massification of the concept of wine production, and especially against the mystifications, Paolo Rodaro is an intuitive and instinctive man. Pioneer of new paths, it is the emblem of a viticulture far from stereotypes, sincere in pleasure, aggregating in the spirit that favours the italianness, the craftsmanship and the naturalness. http://rodaropaolo.it/you invite readers to contact us at the e-mail address info@ilpizzicodelgallo.it to have the wine tasting card just described read more
