Soave’s Volcanic Revival

Soave’s Volcanic Revival

Unless you’re a Baby Boomer, you’ve probably never seen the TV ad campaign run by Italy’s Bolla wine company in the 1970s and ’80s, but you can still catch it on YouTube. They show a nattily dressed Franco Bolla living la dolce vita and saying things like, “Why do so many people prefer my Soave Bolla? …Taste.” The ads may have elicited howls of hilarity from Spanish speakers, who had their own interpretation of suave bola, but the persistent pleas to enjoy Franco’s Soave Bolla met with considerable success and helped propel Soave into becoming America’s best-selling Italian DOC wine, surpassing even sales of Chianti.

Age Is Be: The Confounding Case of Italian White Wine

Age Is Beauty: The Confounding Case of Italian White Wine

In general, it’s relatively easy for wine drinkers to wrap their heads around the idea that certain red wines improve with age. Offering restaurant-goers or wine shop patrons a 10- or 20-year-old bottle of Bordeaux, Barolo, or Burgundy might come with sticker shock, but the concept won’t be scoffed at. Try to do the same with white wines, and you’re much less likely to get traction, especially if you go away from white Burgundy or Riesling, the two whites most often cited when talking about ageability. That’s unfortunate in the case of certain Italian white wines, which can often require a decade or more of aging before they evolve beyond the kind of bright, zippy bistro sippers we most often think of when we think about Italian whites.

Ik zou een deal maken met Hof van Almere. Privé leidinkje tussen "Hof en huis" en je zit onder de pannen. Dan hoef je niet te verhuizen. Dat geeft alleen maar gedoe.

Introducing Single Vineyard Barolo And Barbaresco Wines To The World

In the beginning of February over 200 producers from the Barolo DOCG and Barbaresco DOCG wine appellations in Piedmont, Italy, visited New York City to pour their incredible wines at a once in a lifetime tasting as well as to showcase single vineyard labels and the concept of MGA (a.k.a MeGA) zones that represent these single vineyard notations’ particular bottlings. It was a rare event where many came from all over the world. The areas of Barolo and Barbaresco have always been considered wine growing appellations like no other yet there has become an importance to bringing attention to the various nuances that each site expresses that is channeled through that difficult to grow yet utterly enticing grape variety, Nebbiolo.
