Le Marche Wines among splendid value bubblies out there for New Year’s

Le Marche Wines among splendid value bubblies out there for New Year’s | Wines and People | Scoop.it

A sparkler called “Voile” from producer Fontezoppa in the Marche region of Italy (it’s the calf of the boot) offers lovely freshness from the verdicchio grape. 
Fontezoppa “Voile” Vino Spumante Brut. This simple and pleasing refresher, sporting fast-moving bubbles that settle quickly, offers peachy scents on the nose, Meyer lemon and apple on the palate, and a clean finish. Around $12.

Marche Rosso IGT Fontezoppa in Austin TX

Marche Rosso IGT Fontezoppa in Austin TX | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Brand new to the store, a very pleasant red blend from the Marche, (Civitanova Marche Alta is the town) by Azienda Agroforestale Fontezoppa.  In the mix: 50% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot; on the nose: Sangiovese rules, with all its glorious aromas, a braid of fruit, wood and acidity, soft and fragrant; on the palate: the first thing that hits you is black pepper, gently, and it never goes away, and then suave tannins, friendly and lean but with perfect fruit dosage!  Repeat all the way to the finish, with that salt and pepper strand throughout. The only thing missing here is sitting in that little village on the Adriatic coast of Italy, away from the burning sun, sipping on the wine while gazing across the sea at the Croatian coast!

2009 Fontezoppa Rosso Marche Review

2009 Fontezoppa Rosso Marche Review | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Fontezoppa Rosso Marche is full bodied and has a nice note of black pepper. It has a dark berry flavor without being too berry-ish, which I hate. If I wanted jelly I’d drink Smuckers Wine (which I would also give a shot).  We usually pair with pasta but it goes well with meat and cheeses, too, and, of course, pizza. Anything red sauce/meaty. Perhaps your mother’s meatloaf with the can of tomato paste smeared on top.

Notes on wines that received at least one vote are from tasters Jason Bond, Josh Cole, Felisha “Flea” Foster, and Ellen Bhang. The shop name with each wine is the retailer who nominated it; most bottles have good distribution in our area. Check with your local shop and if they don’t sell the wine, they can probably get it for you.
