Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG...

Giacomo loved elastic ball, a Piedmontese game played in the Acquese hills, an area with a vocation for the production of Brachetto. So it was that Giacomo, like his father<br />before him, inherited the nickname of a fist-ball champion 'Braida', and in 1967 the family began producing Brachetto d'Acqui.<br /><br />Denomination<br />Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG.<br />Grapes and Vineyard: produced with grapes: Brachetto 100%.<br />Winery: steel tanks for fermentation and maceration of the skins at controlled temperature for 36-48 hours. Passage in autoclave for frothing. After stabilisation and<br />microfiltration, bottle ageing follows.<br />Tasting: light ruby red colour with purple reflections, lively foam and insistent perlage. Lush, fragrant and aromatic bouquet, with clear hints of ripe red fruit and dried roses.<br />Sweet, soft, delicate, sparkling, persuasive flavour with a long aromatic persistence. It goes well with strawberries and wild berries, as well as with nuts, hazelnuts, almonds,<br />pistachios and figs.<br />The most traditional pairing, with dessert at the end of the meal or mid-afternoon, is with dry pastries and baked goods, from Christmas panettone to tarts. Braida Brachetto<br />d'Acqui is perhaps the only wine in the world that, above all, goes well with chocolate.<br />Serving recommendations: Serve at 6-8°.<br />

Moscato Rosa DOC 2016 375ml...

<br />South Tyrol Moscato Rosa DOC<br /><br />A rare pleasure in a small edition<br /><br />Castel Sallegg and Moscato Rosa. These two terms have long belonged together in South Tyrol. Not without reason, it was the Princes of Campofranco, ancestors of the<br />current owner Count Georg von Kuenburg, who in 1892 brought this noble grape variety with them when they moved from Sicily to Sallegg Castle in Caldaro and planted it in<br />the warmest soil on Lake Caldaro, where it thrived magnificently. Today, the rose muscatel is one of the rarest varieties in the world. The Moscato Rosa of Castel Sallegg<br />grows at the Seehof in St. Josef am See at 230 m above sea level on the traditional pergola.<br /><br />The production of this wine is very limited: Depending on the weather, Moscato Rosa may not be bottled at all in certain years. Otherwise, up to 1,000 bottles are bottled per<br />vintage.<br /><br />Tasting Notes:<br />A dessert wine whose colour is characterised by a dense raspberry red.<br />On the nose, rich aromas of roses, fine fruit components distantly reminiscent of lychee and ripe, very complex raspberry flavours, supported by an elegant spiciness in the<br />background.<br />Very opulent, repeating the aromas of the fragrance, this powerful wine type presents itself on the palate.<br />Serving temperature: 10-14°C<br />Shelf life: Up to 30 years. Moscato Rosa is Castel Sallegg's most famous wine and, as a variety, is one of the rarest in the world.<br />Food recommendation: Ideal with mature, spicy cheeses, foie gras, desserts with berry fruits (but with sugar restrained). Also perfect as a stand-alone wine in the sense of<br />a meditation wine.<br />Grape variety: 100% Moscato Rosa - Selection Kuenburg: Autochthonous variety.<br />Site: Kaltern - Seehof: 230 m above sea level. Gravel and reddish, ground Grödner sandstone. Warm, air-permeable soils with a special microclimate in the immediate<br />vicinity of Lake Kaltern.<br />Growing system: Traditional pergola<br />Yield per vine: 0.5 kg - 8 hl/ha due to natural trickling.<br />Vinification: The grapes are harvested very late with a minimum gradation of 32°KMW (160 Öchsle). This is followed by a week of maceration in stainless steel tanks.<br />Maturation: 1 year in stainless steel barrels, followed by 12 months in the bottle.<br />Alcohol: 11 ,7 %<br />Acidity: 7,4 g/l<br />Residual sugar: 180,8 g/l<br />

Muffato della Sala 2013...

Muffato della Sala 2013<br />Classification Umbria IGT<br />Vintage 2013<br />Climate<br />The 2013 vintage was a cool one, with excellent weather conditions for white wines. Frequent rainfall was accompanied by mild temperatures and no temperature extremes.<br />Thanks to the very favourable climatic conditions in September and October, the noble rot gradually covered the grapes, with no risk to their health, concentrating the sugars<br />and increasing the aromatic complexity. Harvesting began towards the end of October with the Traminer, followed by the Riesling, Sauvignon and Sémillon, and concluded<br />towards the end of November with the Grechetto.<br />

Le Petit MANINCOR 2014 375ml

Le Petit - true greatness.<br /><br />Green reflections in a bright, luminous yellow - there is also a flash of foreboding: 'This is something special!' Sweetness of selected elegance and unexpected freshness<br />fulfil the promise.<br /><br />Grape variety: Petit Manseng.<br />Colour: sparkling golden straw yellow.<br />Aroma and taste: fruity aromas of mango, lychee, dried apricots; complex depth due to fine honey and botrytis notes, balanced play between sweetness and acidity on the<br />palate.<br />Site and soil: Mazzon in Kaltern at 400 m above sea level, a high plateau sloping towards the south, sunny and airy, ideal for the late harvest. The soil is sandy loam and<br />interspersed with various stones: Dolomite, porphyry, gneiss and granite can be found from small grains to fist-sized stones.<br />Maturation: The slow pressing of the sultana berries took eight hours, fermentation took place in wooden barrels, spontaneously with the grape's own yeasts. The must<br />fermented slowly for several months; at 11% alcohol, the fermentation stopped all by itself. An optimal balance between alcohol, acidity and sugar are the natural result.<br />Serving temperature: 8-10 °C.<br />Pairing: Delicate desserts and very good with final cheese.<br />
