Valtènesi Azienda Agricola Cantrina 2014 - Cristina Inganni named her small estate after the village of the same name. 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!
Bardolino Chiaretto Corte Gardoni 2015 - Corte Gardoni was established in 1980, when Gianni Piccoli decided that the beautiful grapes he carefully farmed on the stony slopes of the moraine in Valeggio sul Mincio, would no longer be sold in bulk, to be blended anonymously in the vats of industrial wineries like Bolla and Folonari, which still dominate Bardolino. 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. Chiaretto is the name given to their fine, dry vino rosato, produced in tiny quantities. This lively blend of Rondinella, Corvina and Molinara shows a fresh cranberry nose and a supple, vibrant palate accented by mild spicy notes.
Côtes du Rhône La Borry Domaine Saint Amant 2015 - Camille Wallut is an architect by training, and a second-generation vigneronne, who returned to take the reins of one of the most extraordinary estates in the southern Côtes-du-Rhône when her father retired in 1997. Her 13 hectares of vines are planted at an average altitude of 500 meters, in the shale and limestone foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail above the village of Suzette. Some of the Grenache was planted more than eighty years ago.Included is a parcel lying on a Mistral-swept terrace at 620 meters, which is the highest vineyard in all the Côtes-du-Rhône. Because of the altitude, the temperature is much cooler at night than in the valley, so the grapes retain acidity, ripen more evenly, and form more complex aromas. A second benefit is that organic viticulture is much easier than down in the valley, because common valley vine diseases like mildew and grey rot, which often require aggressive chemical treatment, are rarely found at such high altitudes.The vines that produce this unique white Côtes-du-Rhône, made from 90% Viognier and 10% Roussanne, were planted in the early 1990s on the advice of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape enologist Noël Rabot. Included is a parcel of Viognier growing on a Mistral-swept terrace at 620 meters, which is the highest vineyard in all the Côtes-du-Rhône. In the glass, the wine has a limpid, delicate yellow-green color, with discreet honeysuckle and white peach aromatics. On the palate, the flavors echo the delicate nose (with the addition of pronounced ripe yellow plums seasoned with fine minerality). The lovely texture is seamless and refined, and the finish is lengthened by delicate bitterness rather than acidity.
