    Winemaker Notes

    #25 wine in VinePair's Top 50 of 2018

    Vivid ruby red color. The wine presents a bouquet profoundly of cherry, ripe fruit and balsamic spice. On the palate it is rich and potently warm with a perfectly balancedacidity and minerality that conveys the volcanic nuances of the terrain. Sweet and silky tannins with an intense and persistent aftertaste.

    Blend: 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Carmenere

    Maeli
    Maeli, Veneto, Italy
    Nestled in the Euganean Hills, a group of volcanic rolling, cone-shape slopes that rise above the Padovan-Venetian plane, is one of the region’s fastest emerging leaders in top quality wine production – Maeli. The winery is directed by winemaker Elisa Dilavanzo, who has drawn new energy from the support given by Gianluca and Desiderio Bisol. With their vision, Elisa has been encouraged to search for new expressions in a grape variety, Moscato Giallo, that still has so much to reveal. The variety of the land, the steepness of the hills, the varying exposition of the vineyards and the peculiarities of the micro-climate motivate Elisa to continue to explore and research every aspect of winemaking in this unique land and ancient varietal.

    Producing every style of wine and with great success, the Veneto is one of the most multi-faceted wine regions of Italy.

    Veneto's appellation called Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of the region’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Amarone, a dry red, and Recioto, a sweet wine, follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing. The drying process results in intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral wines.

    Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, yellow peach, melon or orange zest and have smoky and floral aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
