Science makes da Vinci wine a reality

Leonardo da Vinci was a master of many things, including wine. Da Vinci’s writings and notes demonstrate he was a wine connoisseur and wine maker. Next month you could buy wine from his vineyard.

In Friuli, A Newly Proposed DOCG With Roots In Recent History
12 July 2019 19:42
The move is both a step forward and a return to generations past. Late last year, six winemakers from the Friulian village of Oslavia, today a slip of land at Italy's border with Slovenia and which for most of the 500 years before the 20th century began had been part of east-west crossroads under Austrian rule, proposed a new DOCG for their village’s Ribolla Gialla wines.

Why Sicily's Mount Etna Is A Hot Spot For Wine Production
27 June 2019 12:35
Between 1786 and 1788 German philosopher Johann Wolfgang Goethe travelled throughout Italy. He then wrote his book titled, in Italian, Viaggio in Italia—or, Italian Journey. After passing through Verona, Venice, Rome and Naples he explored the island of Sicily, and wrote that in order to understand the entire country of Italy, ‘Sicily is the clue to everything.’

Italy's Indigenous Varieties - Part One
13 June 2019 19:17
While I write about wines from the world over, Italian wines are my specialty, and let's face it, my favorite. Much of that has to do with the amazing variety of the country's offerings, most of which are based on indigenous varieties. As far as I'm considered, there are enough examples - excellent ones at that - of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a few other varieties one can find from numerous countries...

The Sleeping Giant of Italian Wine
03 June 2019 19:11
A couple of days ago, Harper’s UK posted an article about the dominance of Old World wine in the Chinese on-trade sector (restaurants, bars, etc.). While New World regions like Australia are making an active play, France still rules the roost with a 36.7% market share.

What’s a Super Tuscan and is the Term Still Relevant?
04 May 2019 15:17
Super Tuscans arrived decades ago. It was a category born of frustration with Italy’s traditional wine production rules. Ambitious producers sought to make modern styles and experiment outside the restrictions of the Italian appellation system, known as Denominazione d’Origine Controllata (DOC).

Sangiovese throws a strange quercetin deposit
10 April 2019 17:30
“it’s really ugly,” says Antonino Tranchida, head oenologist at Montalcino’s Col d’Orcia. He is referring to the blue-grey flakes that look like blades of wheat floating in a wine. The residue left by quercetin allows no euphemisms, in contrast to diamond-like tartaric crystals. It’s a relatively new phenomenon – and one that consumers notice. “There are worms in my wine,” was the complaint Montepulciano-based producer Salcheto received from US clients about its 2015 Obvius.

Even geen sangiovese.

Dit wijnmerk vermeldt als allereerste de voedingswaarden op het etiket.
08 February 2019 19:10
Food for thought: waarom hoeven wijnmakers eigenlijk geen ingrediënten te declareren op de fles? Op bijna alle voedingsmiddelen vind je tegenwoordig een overzicht van calorieën, voedingswaarden en ingrediënten. Best gek dat dit wat betreft wijn geen gemeengoed is.

Prosecco war heats up.
24 January 2019 19:26
Australian prosecco producers may be able to satisfy the EU by re-naming their bottles Australian Prosecco, according to a recent report in the Brisbane Times. This would be much more acceptable than if they were forced to label wines ‘Prosecco-like’ – which has also been discussed.

Prosecco Producers Accused Of Adulterating Their Wine.
24 January 2019 14:18
As Prosecco, a sparkling wine produced in Northeastern Italy, grows in popularity so do some of the scandals surrounding its production. Recently two producers were accused of adding a non-legal level of sugar to their wines during the production process, which generally leads to a higher level of alcohol in the final product.
