“A wine favored by the worst kind of thieves.” On the origins of the ampelonym Garganega.

Last Wednesday, a guest at a private virtual tasting pressed me about the origins of the grape name Garganega (we were tasting a famous Soave producer together via Zoom). It wasn’t the time or place to go into extreme detail (the occasion was a birthday party and the setting was the host’s dining room). But I wanted to follow up here on the blog this week because even though the ampelonym’s etymology is still unknown, it leads us down a philologic trail that is as compelling as it is revealing.

Pompeii is famous for its ruins and bodies, but what about its wine?

Pompeii is famed for plaster-cast bodies, ruins, frescoes and the rare snapshot it provides of a rather typical ancient Roman city. But less famous is its evidence of viticulture.

JOHANNES TIEFENBRUNNER AND THE HIGH-ALTITUDE WINES OF ALTO ADIGE

JOHANNES TIEFENBRUNNER AND THE HIGH-ALTITUDE WINES OF ALTO ADIGE

At the northern edge of Italy, where the craggy Dolomites start shading into the snow-capped Alps, lies the wine-rich region of Alto Adige—at least, depending on who you ask. To the large, German-speaking swath of the local population, the region is known as Südtirol. The differing names reflect the unique blend of Mediterranean and Alpine influences that characterize Alto Adige’s culture and, especially, its wine—most bottles from the area are labeled, diplomatically or just indecisively, in both Italian and German.

IDEALWINE UPDATE: ONE-WAY CRICHËT

The undulating hills of the Langhe in north-eastern Italy are home to the country’s answer to Burgundy: the notoriously pernickety Nebbiolo grape, which, when grown in the right conditions and vinified with respect, produces hauntingly fragrant Barolo and Barbaresco with the kind of finesse most commonly associated with the Côte de Nuit
