Valtènesi Azienda Agricola Cantrina 2014 - Cristina Inganni named her small estate after the village of the same name. Just under 15 American acres are densely planted to the traditional Gropello, Rebo, Incrocio Manzoni, and Marzemino, as well as small plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. The smaller plantings go into her “experimental” bottlings,” while the “flagship” remains her D.O.C. Valtènesi.This is a brightly aromatic wine and just a touch spicy. Traditionally, “Gropello” wines have tremendous versatility - pairing with everything from freshwater fish, salamis, pastas, grilled meats, and rice dishes. A very traditional wine from Lombardia!
Mâcon-Péronne Domaine des Terres de Chatenay 2014 - This Mâcon-Péronne comes from a steep red-limestone vineyard covered in Jurassic marine fossils. 80% of the wine was vinified at low temperature in stainless steel tanks, and 20% was fermented and matured in neutral barrels.Remember that this pale, yellow-green wine is Burgundy, so use a good large glass if you can. The nose unfurls cleanly with acacia, hawthorn, white peaches and apple blossoms. On the palate, the concentrated limestone-grown Chardonnay flavors are seasoned with mouth watering minerality, and the finish goes on forever – with fresh, electrifying acidity, that will preserve the wine and allow it to ripen in a cool cellar for several more years.
Côtes de Bourg Château de Monteberiot 2010 - The wine is a classic right-bank Bordeaux blend: dominated by Merlot (80%), with the balance made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and a small component of Malbec. In the glass, this elegant Bordeaux has a dark garnet color, with flashes of bright ruby at the edge. The nose is restrained at first, gradually revealing beautiful red and black fruit aromas, which are lightly seasoned with nutmeg, fresh white tobacco, black tea, and cocoa. Merlot dominates on the palate, with black and (especially) red berry flavors, saturated with limestone minerality, and framed in smooth, fine-grained tannins.
Custoza Mael Corte Gardoni 2014 - Building a winery was a risky undertaking in a region that had such little prestige, but Gianni Piccoli never looked back. Today, under the direction of his son Mattia, Corte Gardoni supplies the finest Bardolino and Custoza to nearly every Michelin-starred restaurant in Italy.The Custoza Mael is the flagship white wine of Corte Gardoni. Hand harvested from the best- situated parcels of Garganega (40%), with equal parts of Trebbiano, Trebbianello (Tocai Friulano), and Riesling, the wine is packed with palpable minerality that comes from the fossil-rich, calcareous hills above Lake Garda.
