Col corsivo corrono i pensieri | Il blog del mestiere di scrivere | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it
Con l’arrivo della scrittura digitale lo stile corsivo ha subito uno strano destino.
Sullo schermo appare un po’ seghettato e in alcune font si piega di lato fino all’inverosimile. Per questo se ne raccomanda un uso parsimonioso.

In 2008, Tabberer produced her first book about falling in love with this  seductive stretch of Italian coastline that runs from Vietri to Positano. My  Amalfi Coast was a highly praised and highly personal travel guide that  couldn't fit all she knew about the food of the area. So she saved her recipes  for her just-released second book, Amalfi Coast Recipes, a  picture-perfect showcase of the region's wonderful produce and endearing  personalities, who happen to be her friends.

Why choose the Aeolian Islands for a sailing holiday?

Why choose the Aeolian Islands for a sailing holiday? | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it

If you are searching for somewhere a little bit different for a sailing holiday, you should take a look at what the Aeolian Islands have to offer.This Italian archipelago is home to some of Europe's most beautiful scenery and also has the added kudos of exclusivity.

 

While it is not one of the Mediterranean's major tourism destinations, the area has been recognised for its stunning landscape and environmental importance. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to it being "an outstanding record of volcanic island-building and destruction, and ongoing volcanic phenomena".

Going solo in Rome

Going solo in Rome | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it
You are in one of the most romantic cities in the world but your other half isn’t!

Is this a problem? “Not at all!” would be my answer.

While of course I would have loved Neill to have been there to share with me all the wonderful things I did in Rome, being on my own did have some advantages.

For starters, travelling on your own gives you the flexibility to do exactly what you want, when you want and at the pace you want. The result is you get a lot more done and I was there to work after all although, I’ll admit, researching Rome’s food and wine didn’t really feel like work!

Secondly, I was far too busy to be lonely and I met lots of really interesting people so I had plenty of opportunities to chatter away to my heart’s content.

Did I feel safe in Rome?

Yes....

Umani Ronchi is a Star Italian Wine Producer by Philip S.Kampe

Umani Ronchi is a Star Italian Wine Producer by Philip S.Kampe | ITALIA PER SEMPRE | Scoop.it

Umani Rochi, the small yet well-known producer from Abruzzo and Le Marche fame, from the center of eastern Italy, facing the Adriatic, sponsored a luncheon for a select group of wine journalists at Mario Batali’s highly-rated Del Posto restaurant in New York City.

Sure, I can write about the food: Lobster Fra Diavolo, Garganelli Verdi al Ragu Bolognese and New York Strip Steak with creamed potato torta, spinach and Calabrian spicy tongue followed by Torta di Cioccolato.

But I won’t.

What I would like to write about is the amazing and really reasonably-priced wines from Umani Rochi that should be in your house as well as the numerous restaurants that feature more than just Italian food.

I felt uncomfortable that I knew so little about the vineyard and its wine-making history. What I learned was that Umani Ronchi was founded in the 1950’s by the Bianchi-Bernetti families.

Today, the 500-plus-acre estate is solely owned by the Bernetti family. Massimo and Michele, his son and visionary for the day, run the estate, which comprises 10 distinct plots, each with unique characteristics, respecting and making the most of the terroir and indigenous vines of Le Marche and Abruzzo.

International varieties, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, are part of the future for the vineyard.

In the 1990s, Massimo Bernetti set his goals to extend the vineyards and improve the quality of the wines. New plots and consultation with experts and academic institutions helped Umani Ronchi discover the future.

That is when Michele came aboard. The future is now thanks to Michele and his efforts.

Michele has refurbished the winery and now focuses on experimental agronomy vineyard care that includes advanced techniques of cultivation and vinification, with a goal of producing only wines of the highest quality.

The 2009 “Vecchie Vigne” won the “White Wine of the Year” award from Gambero Rosso, only showcasing the steps and measures taken by Michele Bernetti and his father, Massimo, prove 30-year-old Verdicchio vines can compete with the best of them.

Success and extremely high-quality wines at reasonable prices have made Umani Ronchi a special commodity for those in the know.

The wines from Umani Roche are easy to recommend, as all of the wines I have tasted fall into a special category — buy the name of the vineyard (in this case, Umani Ronchi), and you will be overly pleased.

My recommendations include Verdecchio Castelli Di Jesu Classico Reserva 2007. This over-the-top wine shows a combination of oak, apricots and spice on the palate that create an expression of significant depth.

The 2007 Vecchie Vigne, once an aperitif wine, is a serious wine that has aging potential. Only 16,000 bottles are produced yearly with this possible futuristic Noble grape (Verdecchio).
