Slow Wine Tour 2016 – Los Angeles (my playlist)

Crystal chandeliers, charming location and 50 wine producers from Italy with their best wines: how to resist? Slow Wine Tour 2016 was in L.A. this week, at Taglyan Complex in Hollywood and I got the chance to taste outstanding wines. Here my “playlist” of favourites:

1. Cantina della Volta – Lambrusco Rose’ Brut (metodo classico), made from Lambrusco di Sorbara grapes. The elegant pale pink color, the soft and generous foam, it’s a charming wine and it looks as good as it tastes: feminine, floral, wildberries, rose and pomegranate aromas, with a good and well balanced acidity. Simply the perfect start!

2. Mossio – Gamvs MMXII Dolcetto d’alba superiore DOC, 2013 – I love Piedmont wines and I tasted many Dolcetto d’Alba in my life, but this one is unique. Valerio Mossio, the wine producer, told me that his wine is “fluid soil”, meaning that the terroir is really what makes it different. Balsamic notes on a mix of plums, blackberries and almonds, licorice, wet rocks, forest floor, if you close your eyes you can even feel the autumn mist on your face. It smells home to me!

3. Trappolini – Grechetto 2014 IGT Lazio – This wine received the “Tre Bicchieri” award from Gambero Rosso, easy to understand why: citrusy, with linden scent and a beautiful mineral finish. The vineyards are located in Castiglione in Teverina and Civitella d’Agliano on volcanic soils, then 6 months on the lees and here we have a wonderful pairing with raw seafood! Love it!

    Moscato d’Asti Docg: prejudices at home, success in the U.S., the search for quality

    Moscato is one of the most "bullied" grape varieties at home, in Italy, and one of the most exported in the world, especially in the States where the most appreciated version is the low-alcohol, sugary and effervescent one typical of the Asti area. It was there that I recently went to discover the history of this wine often associated with festive moments, but unjustly subject to the prejudice of being a wine suitable only for those who are not very wine-knowledgeable or experienced. The reality is quite different, especially thanks to the investments made by producers and the Consortium, which in recent years have focused on quality and on clarifying styles by distinguishing between the Moscato d'Asti Docg and Asti Docg appellations, sparkling, dry and sweet versions.

    Wine is more than natural: the creative genius of Hans Terzer and the new Appius

    Wine is the result of the magical combination of many elements: nature, vine, terroir, but there is a factor which is too often considered as secondary, in particular in this latest fashion of "natural" wines.
