2009 Ca' del Vent Cellatica Rosso

SKU #1108670

This is an extremely cool wine from the Lombardia region, the sparkling wine area of Francicorta to be exact. A blend of several different varietals, but mostly Barbara (which has it's most famous home to the west in Piemonte) and Marzemino (which is more famously known to the east in Trentino). Bursting with ripe cherry fruit, some sweet herbs, soft caressing tannins and a pleasant streak of acidity, this is a wine I'd have a hard time understanding if someone didn't like it. Serve with a slight chill if it's warm outside, incredibly food friendly and versitile. (Chris Miller, K&L Hollywood Italian wine specialist)

Super fun little wine here. A red from the Francicorta area of Lombardia (the "Champagne" of Italy), this is an odd ball blend of Barbara, Marzemino (a grape tradionally grown in Trentino to the east), Incorcio Terzi #1 (not number two or number 3 folks, but number one!), Schiava Gentile (not those brutish Schiavas, this in the gentle, sophisticated one) plus about 5% each Cab Sauv and Merlot. The end result is a delicous little quaffer with loads of cherry, blackberry, a touch of leafy spiciness, some earthy, tarry notes with soft tannins and bouncy acidity. Overall just a very enjoyable wine to drink on it's own or with a late summer picnic. A slight chill will bring out the inherent refreshingness (I know, not a word). Cool wine at a great price and highly reccomended by yours truly. CM

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
