Introduction
Italy has a rich and diverse wine heritage dating back more than two thousand years. Famous for its bewildering diversity of both grape varieties and wine styles, Italy is also significant for the sheer volume of wine it produces. It is rivaled in this regard only by France and Spain. Italy is divided into 20 administrative regions, all of which produce wine to some extent, and all of which contain various wine regions. The most significant, when both quality and quantity are taken into consideration, are Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto. Tuscany is known for its Chianti, of course, but among devoted wine aficionados its Brunello and Vino Nobile are even more highly regarded. Piedmont’s most famous wine is now Moscato d’Asti (following a recent and meteoric rise in popularity), but the region is most respected for its Barolo and Barbaresco. Veneto’s vast output of Prosecco, Soave and varietal Pinot Grigio does little to boost its reputation as a fine wine region, and yet it produces one of the world’s richest, finest wines: Amarone della Valpolicella.
Bisol Jeio Prosecco Brut Rose NV – The Bisol Estate is one of the oldest in the region of Valdobbiadene area. The winery was founded in 1858 by Eliseo Bisol, who was well known for his distillery. Quality has continued to be driving force over the generations. Biosl Jeil Prosecco Brut Rose is a rose with a bubbly personality that offers great drinking pleasure. The color is a brilliant delicate pink, with extremely fine and persistent perlage. The bouquet is elegant and complex, with a wide range of aromas, intense hints of rose, fresh fruit, citrus and lycis. On the palate it is crisp and balanced, with good sapidity and a dry long finish. Due to its “brut” personality, this wines makes an ideal aperitif, perfect for appetizers and canapés at reception and cocktail parties, or even to accompany the entire meal.
Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco 2013 – Established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino, Mastroberardino is Campania’s most renowned winery. Pietro was awarded the professional title of Mastro as testament to his skill in quality winemaking, a tradition that continued uninterrupted for 10 generations and lives on to this day. The name of this wine is entwined with a legend. According to the story, God cried when he found a corner of Heaven stolen by Lucifer and where his tears fell, there grew the grapes that make Lacryma Christi, which translates as “tears of Christ.” Made from 100% Coda di Volpe grown in volcanic soil, this wine is fermented in stainless steel to preserve its unique, fresh profile. Pale yellow in color, aromas of pear and other tree fruits complement undertones of white peach and licorice. On the palate, strident minerality and good body make this a well-structured, food-friendly wine.
Pio Cesare Dolcetto D’ALBA 2013 – Pio Cesare has been producing wine for more than 100 years and through generations. The tradition began in 1881, when Pio Cesare started gathering grapes in his vineyards and purchasing those of some selected and reliable farmers in the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco districts in Piedmont. Today, the estate is managed by Pio Boffa, great-grandson of Pio Cesare. Under his stewardship, the wines of Pio Cesare have become famous throughout the world. Great strides have been made in quality, and single vineyard offerings have dazzled the wine press. The Barbera grapes grown in the Barolo area give full structure, plummy and complex flavor, with spicy and ripe fruit, blackberry aroma and a hint of toasted tobacco. It ages quite well. This classic Barbera has a very well balanced acidity, vinous – it really represents the traditional character of the Barbera grape.
Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2010 – Caparzo is the only estate-bottled producer of Brunello di Montalcino to have estate vineyards on all five sides of the hill of Montalcino, ensuring that no matter what climatic challenges effect one side, the other vineyards will more than compensate. With owner Elizabetta Angelina Gnudi, and winemakers Massimo Bracalente and Francesca Arquint, aims to make top quality products using meticulous and traditional techniques, while at the same time applying a modern outlook in its commercial relations with efficiency and capability. The Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino, made from varietal Sangiovese, displays deep garnet color with full and penetrating aromas of wild berries. The palate is dry, warm full-bodied while harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. 93 Points – Wine Spectator, 93 Points – Wine Enthusiast
Prinsi Barbaresco Gaia Principe 2009 – Prinsi is a tiny estate in Piemonte, Italy farmed by the Lequio family. Perhaps small in size, but large in stature, the Prinisi Barbaresco is a true “Queen” of Nebbiolo. This is a single vineyard Barbaresco with just 585 cases produced annually. Prinsi, “Gaia Principe” Barbaresco 2009 is made from 100% Nebbiolo with modern techniques are used by the young, dynamic thirty something Daniel Lequio to yield layers of complexity in a wine that reveals truly classic flavors. Brightly colored with floral aromas, dried cherry, sweet spices – like close and anise – and just a touch of marzipan and oak on the finish. These are just a few of the nuances you’ll find inside. It pair great with Game meats like venison or rabbit with truffle oil, potatoes and carrots in a stew; also with classic Italian Osso Bucco – braised shank.
