    Winemaker Notes

    Roggio del Filare, Rosso Piceno Superiore D.O.C. is a special selection of Rosso Piceno Superiore that has been in production since 1993. It is a combination of Sangiovese and Montepulciano that is aged in French barrique. This wine has a beautiful, bright concentrated color, a wide and elegant fragrance of red berries, and a dense yet elegant palate recalling the red berries and some characteristics from the oak. Excellent aging potential.

    70% Montepulciano, 30% Sangiovese. The Montepulciano comes from one special vineyard, while the Sangiovese is a selection from the estate. This wine has deep color and a rich texture and lushness. This comes from the vineyard selection, the harvest as well as extended maceration of about 21 days. The wine is matured in new French barrique for 12 months. Even with this treatment, the wine has amazing acidity and finishes long, rich and clean. This is a hearty, mouth-filling wine that is serious yet easy to understand. It will age beautifully and is delicious right now. The 2001 has been awarded the presitigious Tre Bicchieri Three Glass) Award from Gambero Rosso.

    Velenosi, , Italy
    Velenosi
    Located just outside of the town of Ascoli Piceno, Velenosi is a dynamic estate headed by the charismatic and skilled Angela Velenosi. The estate is included in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production subzone, a privileged area included in the much larger zone of Rosso Piceno. While Rosso Piceno is produced in a rather vast hilly area of the Marche, only the very limited zone within the province of Ascoli Piceno, with its special microclimate and pedologic conditions that extend over fourteen municipalities of this province, is designated Superiore. In addition to Rosso Piceno Superiore, which is generally cited smong the top wines in the Marche, Velenosi also produces a Bordeauz-style IGT Marche called Ludi that is widely considered one of the top Italian wines. The potential of this terroir combined with the work of Attilio Pagli at the helm of the winemaking has lead Velenosi to be recognized as a leading producer in Italy and around the world.

    Marlborough

    Home to perhaps the world’s most easily recognizable Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir that lends a unifying thread to all of its wines. But despite common misconceptions, the wines from this region at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island are anything but homogenous. With well-draining stony soils and a dry, sunny climate, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, which helps to preserve natural acidity in their fruit.

    The region’s specialty, Sauvignon Blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass, and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones and vineyards sites as well as fermentation, lees-stirring, and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings from one another. Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot Noirs, elegant Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewürztraminer, and a wide range of Chardonnay styles, as well as more experimental varieties like Grüner Veltliner and Syrah.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
