Finally available again! Our delicious candidate from the “Tuscany Group”, who already has his “willingness to govern” in his name: Barbanera “Governo” Toscana Rosso IGT. It goes without saying that he is prepared to take responsibility – for the fact that you will never lack pleasure.
What a great value for money! Luca Maroni: 95 points, James Suckling: 93 points. Wines in such grading classes often cost well over 10 euros. Our top-rated Nativ Fiano di Avellino DOCG is much cheaper.
At Mundus Vini, the Señorio de Barahonda Monastrell won DO GOLD, and we gave him a strong 90 BELViNi points. Above all, the 90 Vinous points will make you sit up and take notice, because the responsible taster Josh Raynolds is considered to be extremely strict and critical.
The wine inspires with attractive berry fruit and fine spice aromas. Vanilla and pepper enhance the exciting bouquet typical of the grape variety. On the palate, this red wine is elegant, rich and very juicy, fruity, light, structured, with ripe tannins. The finish is fresh and spicy.
Mundus Vini: Gold for 2015
At Barahonda everything revolves around the indigenous grape variety Monastrell. They dedicate all their love and ambition to their highly esteemed “Reina de la Casa” (“Queen of the House”) in order to transform first-class grapes into first-class wines. The Señorio de Barahonda Monastrell DO 2015 is the result of 100% Monastrell produced from its own 65-year-old vines, which thrive in the heat of southern Spain. Small yields promote quality.
Good news for the many Primitivo fans among you: North American Zinfandel and southern Italian Primitivo are genetically identical, they are the same grape variety. Different terroirs and preferences of the cellar masters can naturally lead to stylistic differences in the bottle.
May we introduce you to our latest star in the wine cellar: the stylish Varvaglione 12 e mezzo Primitivo del Salento IGP Fashion Edition is visually stunning! A real eye-catcher, but above all also smelly and gourmet with the beguiling scent of overripe plums, cherry jam, vanilla and other spices as well as cocoa. On the palate it is velvety soft, full-bodied, with good structure, wonderful texture and perfectly bound tannins. Look forward to the impressive final!
At Christmas and New Year’s Eve you can see red in Tuscany! Because of the mild climate, the roses bloom in December. The Christmas tree lighting has to flash red. Wearing red lingerie on New Year’s Eve brings good luck next year. And what are we gonna drink? A red Supertoscan, of course. Not just any one. It must be the supertoscan of superlatives! The Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato Bolgheri DOC is our absolute favourite and bestseller.
Ernie Els only wants to play: as a world-class golfer with Tiger Woods (which he could defeat), as a winemaker with oak wood. Lightness is his own. His light, elegant, almost “decelerated” and effortlessly appearing golf swing earned the US Open winner the nickname “The Big Easy”. Big Easy “is also the name of the delicious red cuvée Ernie produces on Africa’s southern tip. To give our everyday life a dash of lightness.
vvAfter a brilliant warmup, our AdventSale comes at the right operating temperature – thank you all very much for the enormous demand! And with the Poggio Le Volpi Donnaluce Bianco Lazio IGP we deliver again. Il maestro Luca Maroni lifts his hat and simply chooses this exceptional Bianco as “best whitewine Lazio”. If all wines were like Donnaluce, the profession would probably have to be renamed “applauders” or “admirers”.
The Talo series of the Cantine San Marzano stands for particularly demanding wine enjoyment. For wines that attract international attention and score high marks. The best example: the San Marzano Talo Malvasia Nera Salento IGP.
Again a highlight of our current “Winery of the Month”! The San Marzano I Tratturi Rosso Salento IGP 2014 is a deliciously composed cuvée from Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Aglianico.
