Alta Fedelta 2015, Do.t.e. Video Description: Right?  There was really no point of speaking with this ‘pairing’. What’s the point of telling you that Barolo is one of the most important regions in the world? that it is a land that has been divided in more than a 100 different vineyards based on the composition of the soil? No reasons …

VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO 2014, CONTUCCI The other extreme part is the commitment to making as natural of a wine as possible, if the vineyard work wasn’t already enduring enough.   No sulfites, no fining/filtering, no pesticides, no herbicides,  no to just about everything except grapes, Mother nature, copper and minimal intervention.

ROSSO DI CONTRADA 2014, MARABINO Summed up perfectly by a strangely poetic friend of mine…’this wine is an oxymoron…it’s like a stinky perfume, it has a rough elegance about it, it’s soft and hard at the same time, and I have a repulsive attraction for it, exactly how I feel about Sicilians’.

PROSECCO DI VALDOBBIADENE SUR LIE, CASA COSTE PIENE But then, we reached this special little area, the Valdobbiadene hills, where again the stereotypical panoramas of Italian hills pervade.  You’ll find Loris Follador there.  From his character, he seems to me like the last guy that would be making an overproduced, cheesy and overly sweet beverage (aka 99% of Prosecco), and …

Here you have a wine that can adapt to just about anything from medium to hard cheeses, a variety of meats, pasta dishes and more. If you know the grape, in this one you may find to have more minerality at its core. There is of course a sapid, fruity and black cherry element to it making it quite easy …
