Inaugural vintage using partial concrete egg fermentation, with a mix of different barrel ages and styles, yields orchard fruits and tropical aromas on top, followed by ripe round palate; hints of apple and pineapple supported by firm acidity through a clean finish.
This blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Shiraz, grown in the dry-farmed semi-arid vineyards of southeastern Sicily, has produced a fine, complex wine with the stylish Marchesi di San Giulano signature. It shows elegant red and dark berry-fruit with raspberry, cinnamon and clove-driven spicy intensity. Supple fruit flavours show great depth and balance, finishing with an agreeably dry grip.
This has a concentrated nose of creamy apple and pear with lemon and spice accents. It is rich and creamy on the palate with quince and citrus notes, flinty minerality, lovely texture and a vibrant, fresh finish.
15 months of barrel aging adds depth and some complexity to this velvety smooth wine. There is plenty of ripe berry and currant fruit with good weight, deft balance and a lick of milk chocolate.
This signature wine from Emiliana is a multi-grape blend with mostly Syrah and Carménère. What a brilliant nose of blackberries, plums, blueberries, eucalyptus, graphite and spice. It is loaded with an array of fruits on the palate, but also freshness and spice that shows wonderful integration and balance between power and finesse. A delightful wine.
Though described on the label as a Red Ale, it is more gold/amber in the glass, showing lively floral, fruity and fresh malty aromas. Robust full-bodied dry malt kicks in on the palate with a bitter hoppy finish. Hearty, characterful brew.
Forget about the sweet and candied Lambruscos of your past. This is serious, dry, handmade metodo classico (traditional method) from the ancient, rare and endangered original Lambrusco grape: Pjcol Ross. The Rinaldinis are the only producer of Pjcol Ross varietal wines today, a grape that exists in only three vineyards. It was rediscovered by Rinaldo Rinaldini in the 1970s when he took over the vineyard. This tiny family-owned winery is between Reggio Emilia and Parma in Emilia-Romagna at the foothills of Matilda de Canossa. This is full of balsamic imbued black plum and pitchy thorns, with a tight fist of stony spice from the core to the brisk finish. Bubbles are slight, acidity is high, tannins are grippy and the feel is rustic authenticity. This spent one year on the lees and is a solid match for wild pork or boar.
