Some Random Wines and notes

Last night, thanks to a lovely friend, we tasted numerous Italian wines. Three stuck out in my mind for different reasons:

  • Zuani vigne 2007, DOC Collio Bianco Zuani Societa Agricola. A lovely white that had an incredible nose that really appealed to me. The wine is a blend of TocaiFriuliano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc.
  • Rosso del Saprano 2005, IGT Sicilia, Palari. A blend of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Nocera, and Galatena from the slopes of Mt Etna. The wine showed finesse, elegance yet an earthly roughness on the edges. Pepper, cloves, dried thyme and dark cherries. We have a bottle or two of Faro, another wine made by Palari, that I am now tempted to open.
  • Acinatico 2004, DOC Recioto della Valpolicella Classico, Stefano Accordini. Mocha, port and dark cherries. Round and soft yet lovely. Great way to end the night.
I would love to spend more time tasting Italian wines...
