  • In the land of the lagoon, made up of many elements in balance with each other where agriculture, strange to say, has found its key role over the millennia, the unique experience of Venissa, now a winery of international rank, both for the beauty of places and for the style of Venissa Bianco, as well as boasting the historical recovery of the rediscovered Dorona Veneziana grape introduces alongside it an extraordinary Rosso all to be discovered.
    The vineyards (60 years old) of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon planted on the remote island of Santa Cristina, part of the oldest nucleus of Roman Venice, surrounded by stone embankments but reachable only when the tide allows, insist on a silty, sandy and clayish soil, with high salinity.
    The approximately three hectares of the vineyard, with East-West exposure and only three meters above sea level, have a density that is not high at all (about 1300 vines / hectare) and a production of less than a kilo of grapes per vine.
    The premises behind this absolutely unique and obviously limited production are therefore very clear, with limits applied not so much by man but by nature itself, which every day questions the hard work done in the vineyard by varying the composition of the soil and, specifically, its salinity. which can give so much to the vineyards or literally destroy them.
    Reaching in its second production after 2011, Venissa Rosso presents itself as ruby ​​red in the glass, with purple traits, opening to the olfactory examination with notes of black fruit, tobacco, licorice and an inevitable salty appeal that contextualizes it to the fullest. On the palate it is soft, warm, salty, very vertical in the first place then opening in width and persistence to a patient taster.
    Only 3332 the “half” bottles, typical of Venissa, all embellished with a unique copper leaf for each vintage, carefully affixed by the glass masters of nearby Murano.

    The wine soul of Venice resides in Venissa, but it’s not just wine, it’s art.

  • The history of Venice in one sip.

    Well,yes, Venissa is a unique wine in every regard, primarily because it tells the story of Venetian wine, dating back to over 2500 years ago (there was even a vineyard in Piazza San Marco!), and of its native grape variety, the Dorona – which owes its name to the golden colour of its wine and has for centuries been the pride of the local aristocracy.

    The fruit of a traditional production method, which involves long maceration on the grapes, Venissa is a white with the body and structure of a red that is ready to evolve over a long period of time.

    A few years after the first vintage (2010) was produced and sold, this wine already enjoyed international fame thanks to its organoleptic uniqueness: the Dorona, which over the centuries has adapted to the salinity of the lagoon, and the high sodium content in the land on the island of Mazzorbo, gives Venissa surprising minerality.

    The iodine notes already appear in the nose, accompanied by hints of yellow-fleshed fruit that are then confirmed in the mouth, in a sensory, visual and gustatory-olfactory mix that is extremely coherent and engaging. Through the touch, the flavour then comes into perfect balance with its softness and minerality, which results in a warm, enveloping sip which, supported by the tannic texture, is accompanied by citrus and almond notes with great persistence.

    The label is also unique: a gold leaf whose shape changes according to the vintage and which is handmade by members of the last family to carry on an artisan tradition, imprinted with their own name, ‘Battiloro’!

    80 magnum have been made for the vintage 2016.

  • Translating Fabio Tassi’s vision into the bottle and then into the glass is an exercise that leads to understanding the desire to leave a mark by producing wines with a strong varietal and territorial personality, wines certainly not homologated but able to speak the language (or the dialect) of the territory which they belong to, made up of small plots and individual crus that give life to small productions of absolute excellence.

    The Brunello di Montalcino Colombaio is another proven proof: produced with low yield grapes carefully harvested in the extra small 0.9 hectare vineyard out of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, on clayey soils with strong presence of limestone where the exposure and the thermic excursions grant optimal yields and a high quality of grapes, the Brunello di Montalcino macerates for two/three weeks in contact with the skins before being decanted into 700-liter tonneaux where it matures for two years and half.

    The 2016 vintage, same as 2015’s one, is universally recognized as exceptional, a year that recalls the qualitative peaks reached in 1990. The weather has been really mild over the months, following the seasons well and ensuring rain in the right periods, without generating water stress in the summer even in that most difficult place which is the area south of Montalcino.

    The result is of superior quality: acidity, structure and elegance confirm the excellence of the harvested grapes and the great aging potential.

     

    To the taster the Brunello Colombaio presents with an intense ruby ​​color with garnet reflections, introducing a complex and decidedly fruity bouquet to the nose with clear hints of blackberry jam, followed by a spiciness that brings back to cloves and to clear toasted notes of coffee and cedar wood, with a balsamic touch. On the sip it immediately proves to be well balanced, fresh and with a well integrated tannin which however portends a good aging potential. Pleasant and refined in the mouth, it closes the sip dry, an antechamber of an elegant persistence that never seems to fade.

    With an extremely limited production, the Brunello di Montalcino Colombaio perfectly conveys the philosophy of its creator, allowing to discover a characteristic and strongly territorial approach to the Montalcino world.

    The Brunello Colombaio is part of a series of first-rate labels that Winefully enthusiastically proposes to its customers in order to fully get to know Brunello di Montalcino and its limited productions of superior quality.

  • One of the last-born at Ferrari, this extra brut Blanc de Blanc makes its debut with what was, for several reasons, a historic vintage: 2002. Besides being a qualitatively memorable year for all French and Italian sparkling wines, 2002 was also the year the Ferrari winery celebrated its centenary and the fiftieth anniversary of the Lunelli management. In short, what better harvest to inaugurate a special wine? The Lunelli Riserva in fact shares grapes with the Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore (Chardonnay grown in Villa Margon), but ages in large Austrian oak barrels for at least seven years, acquiring complexity and extraordinary softness.

    As expected, the olfactory profile is quite complex: the expected bread crust leaves room for ripe, exotic fruit, and then for tertiary notes of coffee and almond.

    The sip is round and enveloping, and alternates between fruity and toasted notes and lengthens into a very persistent finish. Bruno Lunelli would be proud.

  • Now become an internationally renowned Sauvignon, Quarz is one of the most popular wines of Cantina Terlano, strongly linked (in name and in fact) to the typical terroir of the vine growing area and has become a unique and lovely aging expression of an international grape that has found an exceptional habitat in South Tyrol.

    Cultivated at variable heights between 330/350 meters above sea level, the vineyards with South / South-West exposure on slopes that often reach 40% present yields limited to 40 quintals per hectare and insist on quartz porphyry of volcanic origin on which sits a mixed soil rich in clays, draining and not very nutritious: all aspects that translate into a high minerality and richness in the glass.

    After careful manual selection and gentle pressing, the grapes ferment slowly at a controlled temperature in steel and then only half are transferred to barrels where they rest for 9 months on their own lees before being blended three months before bottling.

    The 2019 vintage was mixed from a climatic point of view, with a very mild end of winter followed by a fluctuating spring, with an unusually low average temperature in May. Summer then came abruptly, with high temperatures and scorching heat that greatly accelerated the growth of the grapes, slowing down between July and August also thanks to some useful rainfall that allowed wider temperature excursions. The Sauvignon was then harvested from the beginning of September with grapes at an optimal state of ripeness, a favorable omen about the quality of the vintage.

    When tasting Quarz has a greenish yellow color and an intriguing olfactory bouquet that ranges from exotic fruit (and not) attributable to papaya, mango, pink grapefruit to herbaceous notes of lemongrass, green tea and mint, with a clear mineral presence of flint. In the mouth thre’s great harmony thanking to a meticulous balance between the bursting minerality and freshness and a pleasant glycerine contribution, before a persistent closure that anticipates a fruity and mineral aftertaste.

    Elegant, profound and undoubtedly exemplary in its execution, Quarz honors the name of Cantina Terlano by confirming its strong international appeal, even more when in 3 liters size.

  • The Montevertine is the great character among the Sangiovese Chianti, expressed in one of its best forms. From an area – Radda in Chianti – known for the finesse and elegance of its wines, this evokes many of the characteristics of Pinot Noir when tasted blind.

    Montevertine is the historic wine of the company, produced between 1971 and 1981 as Chianti Classico Montevertine, and since 1982, following its exit from the Chianti Classico Consortium, simply as Montevertine. From selected Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, it ages for two years in Slavonian oak barrels. The Colorino endows it with colour and floweriness; Canaiolo, on the other hand, lets us perceive the fruit and helps to support the tannin and freshness of the Sangiovese.

    The grapes come from a 2.5-hectare vineyard, filled with rows that enjoy south-easterly and southern exposure. The harvest is conducted manually.

    Its colour is of low intensity, but of great vivacity and brightness. Interesting notes of red fruits on the nose mingle with the interplay of dark and fresh spices, such as liquorice. It concludes with a herbaceous finish reminiscent of undergrowth, ranging from ferns to mosses.

    Its texture is complex, full and enveloping, structured by clear and marked tannin. This is a wine of good persistence. The freshness, especially in its youth, is clear – leaving it for some time in the cellar will achieve a balance that reminds us of Le Pergole Torte, the company’s flagship product.

  • Produced for the first time with the 1977 vintage, Le Pergole Torte was the first pure Sangiovese vinified in the Radda area in Chianti.

    The grapes come from the historic vineyards of the Montevertine company, planted between 1968 and 1999, covering about 2.5 hectares within the 18 owned by the company.

    Since 1981, together with the company’s other wines, Le Pergole Torte has left the Chianti guidelines behind to continue its oenological journey outside of the standards set by the consortium.

    Since 1982, the labels have been designed by the artist Alberto Manfredi, a longtime friend of Sergio’s, who liked to depict stylised, attractive ladies’ faces with simple brushstrokes. Since his death, his drawings, which are preserved in the old archives, have been used every year to remember him.

    When you sample this Super Tuscan the colour emerges as a ruby ​​red – quite light from the chromatic point of view – with light garnet reflections.

    This is a complex Sangiovese, and we perceive it in the nose: from notes of red fruits, which recall the characteristic blood orange of the area, as well as pepper and cloves, to the delicate notes of cocoa and toasty notes. The finish is fresh, with a hint of graphite.

    The sip is elegant and fine, but also powerful and decisive. The refined structure encompasses fresh and soft, savoury and velvety contrasts, from which no winner will ever emerge. The winners, really, are those who taste it and are captivated by its great beauty.

  • Rosso di Mezzo is the new project that comes to life in the 2018 vintage by Federico Graziani, presently a leading actor in the viticulture of the North side of Mt. Etna thanks to modern, extreme, experimental and decidedly dynamic wines that are enriching the increasingly heterogeneous and important kaleidoscope of Etna winemaking.

    Obtained with the best grapes from even centenarians vines located in the Feudo di Mezzo area in the municipality of Passopisciaro at about 600 meters above sea level, it is produced for the first time in 2018 in lieu of Profumo di Vulcano.

    The vines insist on soils where the stratification of different lava flows attributable to well-defined and different historical periods brings complexity and heterogeneity thanks to the alternation of sands, ashes, pumices and lapilli, a mix that guarantees fertility to the soil and that finds in the climate of the North side a precious ally for growing healthy grapes rich in aromatic content.

    Transparent ruby ​​red color, in the best Etnean tradition, it has a fruity nose, with currant and blueberry in the forefront, followed by notes of blood orange, evident hints of aromatic herbs and caper leaf, with a note of flint at the end. In the mouth it flows straight and direct, with light tannins and a great freshness that leave the mouth clean, before a finish with a herbaceous aftertaste of medium persistence. Expectations towards Federico Graziani and his productions are always very high, as well as towards an Etnean viticulture that does not stop raising the bar by focusing on native vines, quality, modern and often extreme vinifications and continuing to prove how interesting this territory is, where great wines such as Rosso di Mezzo 2018 are now the masters.

  • This is not a Ribolla, but the Ribolla by Josko Gravner. In fact, this ‘non-white white’ represents this Friulian producer’s philosophy and love of the land. Like 8000 years ago, Gravner – a pioneer when it comes to the use of Georgian amphoras – uses a technique that restores wine to its integrity, with long maceration on the skins, at least 5 months, which infinitely multiplies the organoleptic characteristics of the Ribolla. The wine continues to mature in large oak barrels for 6 years. The result is a bright orange wine, which changes from golden pink to orange, with a nose filled with intense aromas, of overripe fruit, aromatic herbs and clear minerality. The sip is full and complex with marked tannins due to long contact with skin. This wine can continue to evolve significantly towards pleasant and measured oxidative notes. Enjoying this wine can help one appreciate the evolution of Gravner’s technique.
