2018 Ciro Rosso Classico Superiore DOC, Scala, Calabria: Medium ruby with notes of bright red fruit, wood spice and dried violet. The concentrated palate is rich and charming; firm tannic grip and a fresh finish.
2018 Dolcetto d'Alba Vigna Scot DOC, Cavallotto, Piemonte: Medium-structured yet soft with typical aromas such as bright red fruits, minerality and floral notes. Although it is a wine made to be drunk relatively young, it still has ageing potential for up to 5 years. Good acid balance with ripe, structured tannin.
2016 Avi Sangiovese di Romagna Superiore Riserva DOC, San Patrignano, Emilia Romagna: Powerful ruby red with a garnet rim. The well-developed nose has overtones of ripe blackberries, violet, and spicy notes of clove and nutmeg. The palate is elegant, with the structure and velvety tannins of Sangiovese typical of the terroir. The pleasant sapidity leaves a finish with inviting hints of forest fruits, leather and liquorice.
2015 Boca DOC, David Carlone, Piemonte: An elegant nose of dark forest fruits, dried herbs, and withered irises. Fresh with gripping tannins and a long finish. A wine of great personality and character.
2018 Derthona Colli Tortonesi DOC, La Colombera, Piemonte: Yellow-gold colour with a complex nose of light mineral and typical honey notes. During the first years after bottling fruity, nectarine, acacia flowers and honey notes emerge. On the palate, the wine is dry, warm and soft. The strong structure supports the alcoholic grading. Consistent, this wine is nicely balanced and persistent.
2017 Vertis Verdicchio di Metallica DOC, Borgo Paglianetto, Le Marche: Golden yellow with intense floral and apple aromas. Balanced, sapid and persistent. “Vertis” comes from the Latin vertere (“to turn”) a reference to this superior expression of the varietal.
2018 Frassitelli Biancolella Ischia Bianco DOC, Casa d'Ambra, Campania : Fruit is sourced from a single four-hectare vineyard on a steep cliff overlooking the Mediterranean; an example of "extreme viticulture" given the challenges of harvesting in these conditions. Straw yellow with golden highlights; the bouquet shows yellow fruit, herbs and notes of sea salt and honey. The wine is as unique as it is beautiful.
2015 Alta Langa Brut DOCG, Brandini, Piemonte: Scents of bread crust are perfectly blended with floral notes and hints of candied fruit. The very low sugar residue enhances elegance and finesse, character and persistence.
