Aglianico di Puglia only for "adults"

The scratching and roaring grape of archetype, synergistic farming gives very special sensations. This wine is for connoisseurs only: "Over 18s" of taste. It is not a mass wine; It is a wine of particular refinement on the palate. Synergistic agriculture is certainly a particularly niche philosophy. In This article, it will certainly not be the celebration of an agricultural management that has aspects still to be deepened with particular attention. However, it is possible to say that the wines produced with this philosophy leave to the palate in the most delicate sensations. Also a scratchy and roaring grape like aglianico, becomes "archetype" of delicacy. This is the main difference. This wine should be understood together with the philosophy of the family of Benedict. The wine is the fruit of a vinification in purity. Very rich in the nose, of fine texture and an intense ruby red ones. With a discrete consistency, the smell is particularly delicate, with the typical sensations of red fruits, but that are not oppressive compared to the young Aglianico produced by conventional agriculture: here is the difference. You can also replicate the same comment for the taste markings. The tannin is certainly typical of the local grape: roar but does not bite. This is the obvious sign that the unorthodox production of the winery reviewed has embarked on a particularly suggestive path in the panorama of Italian and Apulian wine Productions. The archetypal winery is without a doubt a company with an unconventional and innovative production. Good luck. Http:// read more

From the cellars a red wine emblem of the Abruzzo land

The sun of Abruzzo echoes in the vineyards and among the rows the tempered taste inside the chalice is the first olfactory sensation that reaches our nostrils. A profound feeling almost to want to trigger the nostalgic memories of youth, and the hope of future projects. The Montepulciano is so, it instils courage in the future, melancholy for the past. A marriage often inconsistent, but with the knowledge that the time spent has been dedicated in the best way to the people around us. We return to touch from Calizarda, a small municipality of the mountain portion of the province of Pescara. A pleasant area, suitable for reflection, solitary walks on the endless kilometers that surround the green areas of the territory. The sparkling air is sedated by a shy but effective sun. We travel for a few minutes the boundaries of the land from where you collect the grapes of Montepulciano. We are surrounded by greenery, while the chatter on the world of wine, the bureaucracy increasingly pressing, and all the difficulties that involves the management of a medium Italian winery, accompany us to the tasting table. The wine is presented with a very charged ruby red coloration; The olfactory spectrum is also deep and very lively. Pleasant at first drink, it is exalted by the nose notes that trace the spirit of Abruzzo, that true that is typical of those who receive the birth in this beautiful land. This wine fortifies the knowledge. It is an easy-to-match Montepulciano. It is an accommodating wine, because it exalts the qualities of the dish that we have decided to match. The seared veal slightly flavored with rosemary and laurel. The whole thing was topped with a cream of mushrooms collected in the woods of the rural area of touch by Calizarda. An excellent combination of palate, memories and excellent company of Abruzzo. Http:// read more

Primodelia, the soft tannins of the Sibillini

Among towers, vineyards, dreams of rebirth and revenge one year after the tragic earthquake of the hinterland of Marche, Lazio, Umbro, the people of this land is angry. Promises from the government, visits in pomp Magna, collected funds almost never distributed, the people of Marche has certainly the tooth poisoned to those who guaranteed to commit. Entire shored buildings are recognized on the hilly horizon of the vineyards that host us. The morning murmur of nature is a relief in the face of catastrophe. Those who managed to walk towards one of the toughest climbs of life, with a destroyed house and with the pain of losing their loved ones, do so with the efforts of her sole shoulders. The necessary willingness to survive fights the institutional abandonment to which, nowadays, Italians are often obliged to undergo. We go back to the basement with a little sadness in the heart. We approach the tasting desk of a wine recognized over the years as an opulent label. A wine famous for its tannins. The blend of 5 grape varieties is formidable. A family secret I know has passed on for generations. True commercial privacy that even the grandparents, first and Delia, would have unveiled. The color is very charged; In addition, the sample is very full-bodied to the texture, almost velvety on the surface of the glass. We add to our tasting some observations on the olfactory and taste-olfactory aspect. The wine is presented with particularly fruity hints, but the main characteristics are expressed in the sample tasting phase. The tannin is particularly silky, the gentle and delicate softness opens the way to a long persistence. Spicy notes are felt due to ageing in barriques. But what remains impressed even after waiting for the nasal notes, is its softness: a velvet on the tongue. First and Delia have bequeathed a recipe that represents the winning card of the Cantine cash. The heart and passion for this land is able to emerge with pride behind the darkness of the last events. This wine is the synthesis of excellent feelings towards its roots and the nature that hosts us. read more

Bow and arrows in honor of Hercules

The myth of Philoctetes recounted in the evocation of mythical Cirò Sergio Arcuri Archer Philoctetes, we start our wine tasting of the Winery by Sergio Arcuri. We're back in the autumn, in one afternoon, a territory of Crotone where it looks like temperatures are prohibited. The Sun is still flourishing, the wind accompanies the walk. We venture into the territory of sacred Krimisa, famous for having been founded by Philoctetes, Archer wanted the gods Apollo and Hercules. His bow and arrows were donated by the latter to our hero who, during his exile on the island of Lemnos, use to feed themselves and to survive. Our hero was instrumental in the final remnants of the Trojan war. When, as posthumous manuscripts describe, thanks to a wooden horse you managed to conquer a city seemingly armored. Sergio Arcuri is our Archer. A vintner leaning to the recognition of the common good. a person adesa values, which now seem to have forgotten: he places humanity first. Sergio is a winemaker who cares about the welfare of the community, the commune, and his colleagues, local producers of the territory. His driving spirit, his enthusiasm and charisma are crucial aspects to this cohesive force that is capable of unleashing. The label is a wine tasting that leaves its mark. A pure gaglioppo of his beloved "reserve" of 2011. A wine ready to drink, olfactory intensity with a very sharp and return particularly persistent filling palate of emotions are clear and shiny. We opened the bottle about 3 hours before sampling. This choice turned out to be crucial; the wine he needed the right contact with oxygen to be able to express all its potential. This bottle of wine was paired with a pork stew. A small side dish of mushrooms and olives accompanied the main pietnza. The arrow of our Archer has caught on. He is protected by the gods. In fact, he was able to defeat most bitter wars, saving the most impregnable fortifications. read more

Dedicato a Martina, oro giallo delle Marche

Un sorso sbarazzino sulle colline marchigiane di Castelplanio
Avete presente qundo a fine giornata, avete voglia di qualcosa che vi rinfranchi l’anima? Avete presente quel senso di spossatezza frutto delle fatiche di un’intera giornata? Quando volete dimenticare il telefono, le e-mail, gli appuntamenti, le scadenze di lavoro, tutte le scartoffie che vi accompagnano durante il giorno? La risposta è Castelplanio. Un luogo ameno, dove la natura incontaminata e l’ammirevole compagnia della famiglia Socci ci fa sentire a casa. Il calore della gente è avvolgente, l’accoglienza, le risate, la leggerezza di quello che dovrebbe essere per tutti noi la quotidianità. Spesso, durante le nostre giornate perdiamo di vista il vero senso delle cose; non riusciamo a dare la giusta importanza alle cose essenziali, ai veri valori, non riusciamo a discerenere tra la futilità delle cose ed il saper vivere la vita, le tradizioni, l’amore ed il rispetto reciproco.
Queste riflessioni nascono dopo aver conosciuto la famiglia Socci. Persone di altri tempi. Loro hanno modernizzato la loro produzione usando il vero artefice dle miglior futuro possibile per noi e per le nostre future generazioni, la storia. Senza la storia e lo studio di essa non potremmo guardare al futuro. Così la famiglia Socci ha costruito con la storia delle tradizioni, la passione per le radici, l’indomabile curiosità verso i costumi del passato, un futuro proiettato verso la qualità delle cose, verso quell’essenziale tipico di crede fermamente nei veri valori della vita.
Il vino in degustazione è un verdicchio dei castelli di Jesi dedicato all’omonimo figlia, Martina. L’oro giallo marchigiano si presenta con una colorazione vivace, di media consistenza. L’olfatto ed il gusto ricordano i giochi che si facevno nei campi fra bambini, quando ci si rincorreva l’un l’altro a vedere chi era più veloce. I prati, i fiori, il sole, un tripudio di gioventù e freschezza; i primi baci degli adolescenti, l’emozione e la vergogna, un fremito allegro e passionale, quando si viveva la spensieratezza dei primi anni di vita. In abbinamento abbiamo scelto un primo piatto semplice: trofie ai gamberi, con una leggerissima salsa di carote. Una prelibatezza vivace come il vino in degustazione. La sua carica amena e rinfrescante offrono al palato il colore oro di chiacchiere e risate in compagnia. read more

Irpinia ed i suoi vini di pregio

Domenico Nardone Nardone ed il suo Taurasi dal bouquet ampio
Taurasi dà i natali ad un vino prodotto con il celeberrimo Aglianico. Vitigno autoctono dell’Italia meridionale al confine tra Campania e Lucania. E’ un vitigno arcigno, agreste, difficile da modellare; nel corso degli utlimi decenni, molti viticoltori si sono cimentati in esperimenti innovativi.
L’azienda Nardone Nardone ha voluto far prevalere la tradizione locale vinificando in purezza nelle sue tenute il vitigno anzidetto. I terreni si trovano alle pendici delle colline irpine a circa 270 m s.l.m. In questo ambiente pedoclimatico, a pochi chilometri dal mare, dove i venti, il sole ed un buon tenore igrometrico, unito ad un terreno particolarmente argilloso con evidenti componenti calcaree, la vinificazione di queste uve fornisce ottimi risultati.
La bottiglia in degustazione è del 2010 con un grado alcolometrico di 15%. Le barrique di legno di rovere di Slavonia conferiscono quelle tostature ampie e vellutate tipiche del passaggio in legno. Solo i vitigni austeri e rustici come l’aglianico hanno bisogno di essere domati in maniera energica e netta da accorgimenti produttivi che noi reputiamo eccezionali. In questo modo, sin dalla produzione in vigna, accurata e essenziale, la qualità è assicurata.
Il ventaglio olfattivo è intenso e complesso; il vino accompagna il pasto di una giornata autunnale fredda e piovosa. Il caminetto e le castagne fanno da completamento al quadro adornato dal calore di casa e della famiglia. Le speziature sono infinite. La loro persistenza fanno da apripista a sensazioni gustative molto complesse. Il pepe nero, i chiodi di garofano, cuoio e pelli animali, un velato sentore di sottobosco, di funghi autunnali, sono solo il presagio della complessità gustativa che ci attendono.
L’abbinamento è staato semplice: brasato di cinghiale con funghi cardoncelli delle Murge. Una salsa barbecue fatta in casa, molto leggera, ha aumentato la persistenza aromatica del piatto per cercare di fare compagnia a quella del vino.
Il caminetto continua a consumare legna, ed ardere costantemente, le chiacchiere in famiglia, il calore della compagnia, l’influenza dei sapori puri della nostra agricoltura mediterranea ci seguono fantasiosamente nelle nostre giornate. read more

In the post-war period a Centesimino made the difference The second world war left an environment free of hopes, dreams, ambitions for all local people. The Italy, of all people, was a country torn apart by bloody period as that's typical frustrations. A unique period in history, unparalleled in grief, in sadness, in the knowledge that everything that had been built, was now lost. Each personal story is a novel. Each anecdote, a chapter in the life of the past but that has sealed the fate of peoples for decades. As long as I remember, even seniors living expression, will be shining, then avert similar events will always be strong and resilient. The reconstruction was tough. Each, in its own sphere, work, personal, emotional, had to leave. The people of Faenza, men and women of Romagna, apportioned, under wine, from a native grape, Centesimino. Grapes must and wine bottles. The characteristic is their sugar content. At first drink the wine is sweet. The wine into the chalice wheeling is almost full consistency. The glycerol results in a fantastic blend together with residual sugars. On the nose, this wine shows some hints of violets and roses very full-bodied. To the taste, a judicious persistence along with residual sugar that exalts the palate, especially if accompanied by a Braised meat with barbecue sauces; or local cheeses aged cheeses dei colli di Faenza. In addition, there is the presence of a freshly picked wild berries jam.

With a stroke of Chakraborty, quality is served

Vernaccia di Pergola great local expression of the quality we are dealing with a chalice in his most remarkable innovative tradition. Retinue of Terracruda is a wine that has rediscovered the old traditions of the winery of Helsinki. What makes it especially curious at the sight of the most witty lovers of good wine is its color. A pink almost Claret slightly out of scale following the methodology AIS, but vaguely reminiscent of grapes by a preponderance of the pigments. Maceration is short, yet its particularity is the light load almost similar to sunset; an auspicious color. The drink is particularly cheerful, a siren of the seas that ccompagnarono Ulysses in the long journey to Ithaca. We enchant again from his lively, almost spicy, mellow scent ever, weak-willed. The steel vats where fermentation takes place and subsequent aging can confer and enhance that vivid autumn season, even fruit: citrus tracing is unmistakable. The hills where the screws are resting during winter time, suggest a very well established and diverse olfactory fan; so the aleatico, here called vernaccia di pergola, manages to excite up to go for jaunty culinary combinations. We could not resist the goodness of a cheese and pepper, simple but from sheer "friccicore" local pecorino cheese and spices mixed with curd. That bit of pleasant spiciness combined with the flavor of a homemade wine very captivating and young man has conquered: and so it was, for us, Ithaca. read more
