Looking back, every vinicultural year is a special year and every year you hear the sentence”…I have never experienced that before…” In this sense, 2017 will also be one of the special years for the VDP Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery in which Mother Nature has once again proven that it sets the decisive parameters.
Domaine du Tariquet is located in the beautiful south-west of France and is considered a pioneer in its region when it comes to planting Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay vines. The first winery in Gascony to cultivate these varieties in the 1980s, Chenin and Marselan were added in the 1990s.
The Casa de Vila Nova Chardonnay impressively proves that in the green northeastern part of Portugal, not only the famous Vinho Verde is masterfully mastered. This Chardonnay shines in your glass in delicate gold. We don’t know any better Portuguese white wine from this grape.
Named after the Castello Petra Ceci, the Montemajor “Petra Ceci” Aglianico also comes into the glass as a true wine castle. Large, powerful and majestic is the wine, which was awarded by Luca Maroni personally with splendid 97 points.
For all pasta lovers – the Cantine San Marzano Domodo Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo DOP is the perfect companion to typical Italian delicacies such as pasta, salami and mature cheese. Time for an exuberant festa.
Even the “simple” Montepulciano of Farnese is great – but the Farnese Fantini Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo Colline Teramane DOC can top it all!
The Volpe Pasini Chardonnay DOC comes into the glass in a beautiful straw-yellow shade. Its bouquet promises the crunchy and fresh aromas of green and yellow apples, wrapped in delicate floral scents and flavoured with a touch of bread crust.
Wow, the Californian Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel comes straight from the red carpet to you in the glass – because on the big international competitions he is not at home, but he also likes to win there!
Today we would like to present you the so popular Apulier Mamma Santa. “The Holy Mother” – from a wine point of view you can see the Montemajor “Mammasanta” Primitivo di Manduria. Of course, because the Primitivo has shaped Puglia like no other grape variety and the Primitivo di Manduria has made “Puglia” famous all over the world.
Named after Mamma Santa and consecrated by wine pope Luca Maroni to the liquid icon with 95 points, a adorable Primitivo di Manduria comes into the glass, in front of which we also bow deeply with 94 BELViNi points.
Its perfectly structured bouquet is brimming with ripe plums, plum jam, cassis, other black berries, cinnamon, sandalwood, cardamom and clove. Your palate becomes a cathedral when you enjoy Montemajor Mammasanta Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2013, which makes this intense and juicy Montemajor with its magnificent richness, fruity elegance, fresh acidity and sumptuous splendour sound like a powerful organ played by a master hand.
Mamma mia – or mamma nostra – we want more of it!
