It’s one less thing to stress over, and six more reasons to enjoy the holiday.
Metodo Classico Bianco 2002 Lini
Fabio Lini has crafted a magnificent brut sparkler from Pinot Noir harvested in the Oltrepo Pavese and vinified in bianco at the cantina in Correggio. The wine spends 48 months on the lees before dégorgement. Serve with roasted chestnuts, baked apples and Robiola.
La Gazzella 2004 Ezio Voyat
Ezio Voyat spent years developing, perfecting and promoting what we consider to be the best dry Moscato we’ve tasted. Made from fruit grown in steep hillside vineyards just outside of the village of Chambave, La Gazzella has floral and mineral aromas, racy acidity, medium body and a great finish. Serve with salt cod fritters, smoked sable or pickled herring.
Lacrima di Morro d’Alba 2007 Enzo Mecella
Lacrima is a unique grape variety grown in and around the town of Morro d’Alba in the Marche. Its fragrant, floral character calls to mind roses and hibiscus blossoms. With moderate acidity and mild tannins Lacrima is suitable for drinking by itself but we prefer it with hearty, aromatic soups.
Chianti Colli Fiorentini Montebetti 2007 Guido Gualandi
Guido’s Chianti Montebetti is a hand-crafted wine made from organically-grown Sangiovese and Colorino grown in the Colli Fiorentini. Without the assistance of pumps, refrigeration or non-organic additives, Guido has to work twice as hard as most to achieve his consistently excellent results. This full-bodied wine, brimming with typical Sangiovese zestiness is great with braised short ribs, roast goose or lamb tagine.
Amarone 2003 Le Ragose
The holidays wouldn’t be holidays without a glass of Valpolicella’s famous passito. Le Ragose has been making excellent Amarone since the late 1960’s using great fruit, cold winter air and a belief in natural winemaking methods. Big, rich and aromatic, Le Ragose’s Amarone is perfect with ripe washed-rind and blue cheeses.
Vin Santo del Chianti Rufina 1999 Travignoli
Giovanni Busi, proprietor of Travignoli and head of the Consorzio di Chianti Rufina makes Vin Santo the old fashioned way. His version of Tuscany’s classic dessert wine spends 4 years in the attic exposed to the changes in season. Off-dry and gently oxidized, this Vin Santo goes well with older sheep’s milk cheeses and semi-sweet biscotti.
