Trentino

Cantina Tramin

Stoan D.O.C.
Due to low spring temperatures and continuous rainy periods in early summer, the vines began to grow and bloom later than in the previous years. The well- watered soil was ideally prepared for a summer of high temperatures. Harvest began about ten days later than usual, and cool nights and sunny days complemented each other ideally shortly before the white wine harvest. The white wines show excellent and extraordinary quality, endowed with highly elegant aromas of fruit and intensive freshness! The wine shows a clear, straw- colored, lightly golden hue. The aromas are intense yet clean and pleasant, and suggest hints of peach and elderberry, as well as exotic aromas of pineapple, pear and subtle green notes. The wine feels fresh and gentle on the palate, with great balance and lasting flavor intensity. The wine shows a clear, straw-colored, lightly golden hue. The aromas are intense yet clean and pleasant, and suggest hints of peach and elderberry, as well as exotic aromas of pineapple, pear and subtle green notes.

Cantine Bolgheri

Vermentino D.O.C. Tenuta Guado al Tasso
The 2014 vintage has demonstrated, once again that Bolgheri can make excellent wine in hot vintages. The morphology of the territory and the nearby presence of the sea mitigate torrid summer temperatures in well-exposed vineyards and help to avoid the vine stress which compromises balance and proper ripening. A luminous straw yellow in color, the wine’s aromas are riper and more mature than usual with notes of citrus fruit and herbs, which, in this vintage, mingle with fruity sensations which recall yellow peaches and apricots. The flavors are savory, persistent, fresh, and with a pleasurable fruitiness on the finish and aftertaste.

Abruzzo

Cantina Safari

Pecorino I.G.T
Pecorino is the rarely seen ancestor of the white Pinot varietals, but certainly doesn’t taste like a Pinot Grigio. Fruity yes, but richer and bolder. Good structure and an evolving presence. We were most impressed by the nose that releases aromas of considerable elegance and delicacy, as well as by its self-confident, spacious palate.
