      A curious grape, one that I seek out for it's unique signature--superbly dry yet packed full of flavour. A book end of dryness---beginning to finish and in between notes of blackberry, blueberry, Cardamom, anise, pepper, and dark dark chocolate. Elena Walch is the wine maker and producers 22 wines including this one. Her Chardonnay has a delightful name--"Above the Clouds," Gewürztraminer, a Passito from Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco and Müller Thurgau. Lagrein is the offspring of Teroldego and has a relationship to Marmezino, Refosco and Syrah. I developed a trust and affection for the qualities that Lagrein presents-- a unique and delightful wine. &&& Demystifying Wine...One Bottle at a Time from all wine regions around the world.

          Lets See Who’s Paying Attention To The Tipping Point This past Saturday I was feeling a bit “careless” and I wanted to get a feel what the “tipping point” would be to make people REALLY REACT and REALLY JUMP. Man did I find it!!!!!! The process was actually pretty simple…. - I trolled through my Italian inventory - Found a wine I had healthy stock on in the event that there was a BIG response - Stuck my finger in the air and took a guess that a case price of $240 (i.e. $20/Bottle) would be the tipping point - Let the e-mail FLY Long story short….the phones lit up, e-mails came flooding into my in-box and people raced through the front door. 200+ cases of Brunello Di Montalcino sold out in a matter of 2 HOURS!!!! EAK….That’s the tipping point alright.

          • Episode 10: Have You Ever Forgotten A Wine?

            The smoke is clearing…we have 3 shopping days left until Christmas….and I am starting to circle up and study all my Italian wines in stock. I stumbled across a new line of wines that I grabbed just before Thanksgiving that were REALLY exciting…Then completely forgot that I bought them!! Have you ever bought a wine before and stuck it in your wine fridge or wine rack and then forgot that you bought it or why you bought it? That’s what I did (Oops) I know WHY I bought them. It’s because this is an exciting new project from the folks at FONTANAFREDDA and The Wine Advocate’s Antonio Galloni was glowing over what tremendous value they represent… “…This is another impressive set of wines from Mirafiore, the newly created spin-off of Fontanafredda, under which all of that estate’s best vineyards are now bottled. The house favors a bold, fruit-driven style even though vinification and aging are strictly traditional. Despite their richness and intensity, the wines possess superb balance, not to mention considerable personality. The success of the entry-level bottlings strongly suggests the Baroli will eventually be even better than these currently releases from the 2007 vintage. Oenologist Danilo Drucco told me he was inspired to recreate the classic style he learned under Beppe Colla at Prunotto, where he worked for five years before coming to Fontanafredda. Here’s to hoping he can pull it off. The first efforts are certainly encouraging... " WA 10/2011 I felt very comfortable buying these wines sight unseen as I know the vintage, I know the winemaker and I know the estate. Combine that with the price points of these gems and you have the makings of a total no-brainer.

                  The Germano winery is a few hundred yards north of Serralunga. Sergio Germano is typical of the new generation of producers in the Langhe; after completing six years of study at the school of Enology in Alba he made wine with some of the top vintners before returning to the family winery in 1993. Today, he carries on the tradition of Serralunga - bold and elegant Barolos that boast of the local climate, soil ... and Ettore Germano.
