Le Marche Wine in the US Market | Blind tastings can become eye-opener for wine lovers

Le Marche Wine in the US Market | Blind tastings can become eye-opener for wine lovers | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The fun part of a blind tasting is when the wines tasted and rated are then "unmasked" and we learn what we liked the most and the least.
I recently led two blind tastings of Italian wines that proved to be quite interesting.
Italian wines present enormous opportunity for value, but you just have to know where to look. Less appreciated is the potential for excellent value provided by lesser-known grape varietals.
Two wines that stood out at each of the tastings that prove the point were from relatively unknown grapes — the Nero D'Avola and the Lacrima Di Morro D'Alba.
More obscure is the Lacrima Di Morro D'Alba, a grape that virtually was extinct until 1985. Since then, production has increased dramatically as people have appreciated the unique flavor profile that this grape produces — a remarkable aromatic finish of violets that we never suspect would be provided by a red wine. With a smooth mouth feel and full body, this makes for an enjoyable wine (that finished in second place in each tasting). [...]

Drink Le Marche | New Year's Toasts: Passerina Brut, Velenosi, Ascoli Piceno

Drink Le Marche | New Year's Toasts: Passerina Brut, Velenosi, Ascoli Piceno | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Passerina Brut Velenosi, Charmat Method
The Passerina vine, with its rich aromatic properties, is particularly apt to make sparkling wine with the Charmat method. From harvest to fermentation, a new, very fine wine is produced, aged on the lees for about 90 days (Charmat Lungo). The wine obtained is a sparkling wine with a fine and persistent perlage, creamy and silky, with heady and enthralling scents creating and living up to the expectations and makes you want to drink more. Alcohol content: 12,5%
Colour: Bright yellow with greenish shades. Persistent and thin perlage.
Smell: A successful fusion of soft fruity nuances and fresh flowery sensations. Intense, fine, fragrant, recalling acacia flowers, pleasurable and very elegant, with white fruit, peach and citron aromas.
Taste: Lively citrus fruit sensations, soft nuances of bread crust, enthralling aromas of white flowers, together with freshness and flavour (enhanced by its appetizing petillant) are pleasingly in contrast with the smoothness of this wine. Excellent persistence with an agreeable taste/smell match. [...]

Sampling the Wines of Velenosi at MacArthur Beverages

Sampling the Wines of Velenosi at MacArthur Beverages | Wines and People | Scoop.it

I was recently at MacArthur Beverages when Anne Hay of Domaine Select Wine Estates and Andrea Bianco of Azienda Vitivinicola Velenosi were sampling five wines from Velenosi. Tim called me over and as this was a new producer for me I had great fun trying the wines because I rarely drink wines from the Marche region of Italy. I started with the strongest value of the bunch. The 2010 Querci Antica which was a stand out for its intense floral qualites, perhaps polarizing to some, it is one I enjoyed and a bottle I will certainly purchase. Stepping up in price the 2007 Rossio del Filare had an edge with its depth of fruit over 2007 Ludi. My quick impressions are below along with the suggested retail prices...

Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Velenosi | wacky wine on wednesday

Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Velenosi | wacky wine on wednesday | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Velenosi’s Lacrima has been described as a bouquet of violet flowers I love the florals of this wine paired with soft tannins.

The wine’s peculiarity doesn’t end with it’s characteristics. The wackiest part is that not many people know about this wine. I even presented it to one of my very knowledgeable wine buyers and they did not believe me that Lacrima was the varietal (the grape). This is mostly because Lacrima is exclusively produced in an area of Italy called Morro d’Alba and not all producers export their wine. There is not much marketing or promotion of this wine and you will not see it on most shelves. Morro d’Alba is located in Le Marche, a region on Italy’s central eastern coast. So this is one of Le Marche’s hidden gems and Velenosi Vini is a producer dedicated to sharing the region’s treasures with us in the States.[...]

Velenosi Rosso Piceno Superiore Brecciarolo Gold, 2010

Velenosi Rosso Piceno Superiore Brecciarolo Gold, 2010 | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Velenosi Rosso Piceno Superiore Brecciarolo Gold, 2010, 14%, €19.90. Lots of Rosso Piceno in the Marche area (about mid-way on the eastern coast of Italy) but only a very limited zone is designated Superiore. Brecciarolo refers to broken stones, typical of soil in the area and the grapes are Sangiovese and Montepulciano.
The Montepulciano gives it the heart while the San Gio lifts it with aromatics. It is soft on the palate, well structured, well balanced and Very Highly Recommended.

Colour is deep purple and the aromas are of cherries certainly, violets also and more. It is lovely and fresh on the palate, no shortage of fruit flavours but all with a refreshing acidity and then a good spicy finish.

Velenosi Villa Angela Pecorino 2010, Doc Offida

Velenosi Villa Angela Pecorino 2010, Doc Offida | Wines and People | Scoop.it

$13.95 on US Market

Pecorino is a grape variety that is gaining acclaim, and this wine shows why. Aromas of pear, peach, almond paste and honey. Dry and fruity with a nice seam of acidity to bring balance. This pretty and flavourful wine is a great sipper. It can be enjoyed with grilled shrimp and a light lemon sauce, or with the regional cheese that shares its name. (VINTAGES panel, July 2011)

Score: 4.0/5
Reviews: 3
Released:Mar 31, 2012

Awarded Wines of Le Marche: Rosso Piceno Superiore, Roggio del Filare 2008, Velenosi

Awarded Wines of Le Marche: Rosso Piceno Superiore, Roggio del Filare 2008, Velenosi | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Roggio del Filare is a selection of Rosso Piceno Superiore that has been prized with "5 grappoli" by the AIS Guide "Duemilavini" ed. 2012. As clearly indicated by the Denomination production specifications, this wine is mainly made with Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes, then refined in French oak barriques. This wine has a luminous and concentrated colour, a wide and elegant aroma which recalls sour black cherries and the small red fruits. Also its taste is wide, soft, varied with a successful balance of fruit and wood.

Colour: Brilliant, gleaming ruby red with a hint of garnet.
Bouquet: Intense, elegant nose, with fruit-driven scents and a hint of preserve, blackberry, cherry, all blending perfectly into the wood's spicy undertones.
Taste: A pulpy mouthfeel with very ripe tannins; velvety and just the right touch of tannin and fruit. The warm, lingering flavour, full-bodied and well-orchestrated, makes this a distinguished and charismatic wine.
