Rosso Conero Barco Brunori 2013 - Generations of Brunoris have grown wine in the province of Ancona, in Le Marche, but none was bottled until 1956, when Mario Brunori established his winery in the rural Contrada San Nicolò. At the same time, he opened a small wine shop in the nearby town of Jesi. Today, Mario’s son Giorgio heads the family business, assisted by his daughter Cristina who manages the office, and his enologist son Carlo who is in charge of the winery. Specialties include outstanding Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno, as well as some of the best Verdicchio in the province.This wine is comprised of choice Montepulciano grapes blended in with a little (about 10%) Sangiovese both vinified in concrete vats, and aged for eight months in used oak barrels for added complexity. The result is a wine that combines juicy, robust fruit, round, resolved tannins and a long, spicy finish.
Grignolino d’Asti Gianni Doglia 2015 - After working in Piemonte for ten years, Gianni Doglia returned to the estate his grandfather had founded in 1940. The tiny estate is located in the softly rolling hills of Monferrato in the Asti zone.Known particularly for his bottlings of Moscato d’Asti, Gianni’s Grignolino is where his heart lies. Producing a scant 2,000 bottles (on average) in any given vintage, this is a rare, fine expression of this delicious, indigenous grape.The Grignolino is hand-harvested and gently pressed with a short (2-3 days) of maceration before the skins and pips are drawn off. The wine finishes fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. The beautiful ruby-colored wine shows red fruit and exotic spice on the nose, and discrete tannins on the palate.
Mâcon-Villages Vieilles Vignes Domaine André Bonhomme 2015 - The Mâcon-Villages Vieilles Vignes comes from three separate parcels, each now more than fifty years old, located above the villages of Viré and Clessé. The farming is entirely organic and the grapes are hand-harvested. After cool fermentation, the wine matures in stainless steel for a full twelve months on the lees, and is bottled six months after racking.First, remember that this limpid, silvery-golden wine is fine Burgundy, so use a large well-shaped glass and don’t overfill it. And pay special attention to the wine in the first minute or two: this is a textbook example of a wine that evolves in the glass after it’s poured. The classic nose unfurls with ripe Honeycrisp apples, quince marmalade, and fresh figs, along with dried honeycomb, grated ginger, and sweet almonds. On the palate, the wine is creamy and generous, with chalky mineral-saturated Chardonnay flavors sustained through a long brisk finish by fresh, lacey acidity. Drink now for it’s luscious primary fruit, or lay away in your own cool dark cellar for six years or so, if you can wait that long.
