Fontezoppa Serrapetrona Vernaccia Nera “Campignano” 2009

Fontezoppa Serrapetrona Vernaccia Nera “Campignano” 2009 | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Vernaccia Nera possesses a fairly large slice of the exhuberant fruitiness that bigger versions grown in hotter zones do, but with quite a bit less alcohol than these more corpulent examples, which for me makes Vernaccia Nera a great partner for a really good pizza…with fresh mozzarella and onions…and so my wife Jen made the call…

Fontezoppa Serrapetrona Vernaccia Nera “Campignano” 2009

True, deep garnet color. Rustically elegant nose of cherry, burnt orange peel, black raspberry, freeze dried coffee, roasted nuts, sea spray, celery seed and licorice. The palate has a charmingly austere medium body with a smooth, peppery tannic structure and a tart acidity, that perfectly frames earthy flavors of strawberry preserves, dried cranberries, blackberry, new leather, and hibiscus. Long, very complex finish. [...]

Wines Le Marche: Azienda Agricola Colleluce Vernaccia di Serrapetrona

Wines Le Marche: Azienda Agricola Colleluce Vernaccia di Serrapetrona | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Vernaccia of Serrapetrona is a natural red sparking wine that it can be obtained by 85% of the autochthonous vineyards Vernaccia and 15% of Sangiovese, Montepulciano or Ciliegiolo.
The best grapes are kept and dried in special rooms, the rest, instead, is pressed at the moment of the grape harvest and it is put in steel tanks for the first fermentation.
After 2 month also the dried grapes are pressed for the second fermentation. The two parts, that are not completely fermented, are finally positioned in autoclave to allow the third fermentation.

Vernaccia | More than a wine in Le Marche

Vernaccia | More than a wine in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Up in the mountains, is the small town of Serrapetrona. The smallest classified wine producing zone in Italy, they are justly proud of their Vernaccia, which they have been making since the 1400′s. Vernaccia was the first Le Marche wine to be awarded a DOC and in November every year Serrapetrona gives a party in its honour. It is an intensely aromatic sparkling raspberry red wine, and I fell in love with it on my first taste. I’m told that it isn’t sold much outside Italy and indeed the flavour, reminiscent of strawberries and cranberries, with spices and tannins, needs to be savoured with the right food and in the right conditions to really come into its own grapes drying
The first stage of the production is drying the grapes, hung on racks for up to long as twenty days. The drier the grapes, the more concentrated the flavour. The wine is made in three fermentations, the final one producing the fizz. [...]

Vernaccia Di Serrapetrona Alberto Quacquarini

Vernaccia Di Serrapetrona Alberto Quacquarini | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The wine is Vernaccia Di Serrapetrona, produced by Alberto Quacquarini. It is a Vino Spumante Secco (dry red sparkling wine) made with Vernaccia Nera grapes, a local variety found only in this region of Marches. Rumor has it is also the wine referenced in Dante’s “Divine Comedy”. The wine is produced using triple fermentation. What this means is that half the grapes are made into wine in the traditional red wine way.

Colli di Serrapetrona ·Vernaccia in Le Marche | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Colli di Serrapetrona is dedicated to the rediscovery of one historic grape varietal of the Marche region: Vernaccia Nera. As far back as 1893 Vernaccia Nera was considered the better of the region's red varietals, but by the mid 1900’s it was entirely used to produce sparkling wines, in order to tame its wild and spicy character...
