    Corte di Valle Chianti Classico Riserva 2014

    inserito da Leif Karlsson, VinoVelo

    Corte di Valle makes one of my favourite Chianti Classico Riserva. They also have some really good saffron production, and I would recommend you to try some of their saffron pasta! The saffron plants blooms in October on the slopes of Corte di Valle. It's a colour explosion that you really should see one day in your life! 2014 was a difficult year for many wine producers in Italy, with lots of rain and cold weather far into the month of...

    Barolo Persiera 2005

    inserito da Leif Karlsson, VinoVelo

    Have been living in Chianti for many years coming to visit the land of Langa, it often gives me a déjà vu feeling, with the rolling hills, vines, small villages with towers from fortifications and churches all around. If you havn't been to the town of Monforte d'Alba you should go there, it has an excellent winery with the name Josetta Saffirio, run by Sara Vezza, a very skilled wine maker! Here we have 200 years of growing grapes and...

    Barbaresco 2013

    inserito da Leif Karlsson, VinoVelo

    Coming to Piedmont is always a pleasure, their selection of red wines are excellent! The Nebbiolo grape has become a good friend over the years for me. To travel around in Alta Langa and visit towns like Barbaresco and Barolo makes me feel at home. Hamrins Barbaresco has a beautiful dry entrance with tannins very present, a fresh acidity and good warm flavours of black currant, liquorice, black berry, mature figs and black pepper. A wine to...

    The winery Carpenè Malvolti in Conegliano has a long history of making Prosecco. Being founded in 1868 by Antonio Carpenè and Angelo Malvolti makes it almost as old as this country (only 7 years apart, Italy founded in 1861). Now the 4th and 5th generation is running Carpenè Malvolti. Coming to the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene for the first time is breathtaking! Seeing all the vines growing up and down the hills is amazing,...

The view down into the Greve Valley is amazing, especially at sunset when you have the town of Panzano in the background! The wine maker Giuliano Coccia has the...
