Reminiscing about a warm summer evening over a glass of 2014 La Canosa - Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC Nummaria.
A beautiful, approachable wine composed of a true Italian blend of Montepulciano, a staple of the Abruzzo region, and Sangiovese grapes. Structured and elegant, the wine complements the relaxed and amourous energy of the garden - shadows extend further as dusk sets in and the tone of red, which appeared young and highlighted in the sun, deepens. The scent is muted at first, then opens up to qualities of bark with a mineral, polished tannins, and persistent fruit.
An Italian heavy-weight is rounding out the summer for us. This bottle offers a beautiful way to ring in the cooler months while fulfilling the hearts of year-round full-bodied red wine drinkers.
This North-Italian Barbera fills the nose with the richness of dark cocoa, coffee, and vanilla. A little bit of a berry note offers bite, together with peppery spices. Velvety tannins and a touch of saltiness make the wine feel very juicy and salivating – like when you bite into a blueberry or other crisp sun-ripened berry. Enjoy!
Solar Das Bouças, Loureiro, 2016
A fruity aroma, especially pear - typical of the Vinho Verde region, Loureiro. Within the mouth, it is dry and cool, with well-balanced acidity and body structure, and offers a brilliant, fresh aftertaste.
