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.
Roman flair in the bottle! Let the highly aromatic Poggio Le Volpi Roma Rosso DOC take you to the Eternal City and sniff out its flair on a Vespa excursion between Spanish stairs and vineyards, through noisy alleys, past venerable ruins and Catholic wonders. For a long time we were looking for a real top quality wine from Rome and its immediate surroundings – now we have found it!
If the gifted wine artists of Femar Vini take only grapes from old Primitivo vines and create a brand-new top quality creation from them in a refined procedure, then we can be as curious as a lightning arch. The Femar Vini Gran Appasso Edizione Old Vines Primitivo Puglia IGP is composed of dried berries, passing through a short passage in wooden barrels, producing an above-average alcohol content. The “increase in wages” has truly earned this wine, after so much effort in the service of quality!
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”.
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.
