Cerealto 2018 the resistant white born at 700 meters above sea level

Cerealto 2018 the resistant white born at 700 meters above sea level

A still wine made by bronner and johanniter, resistant vines raised in high ground. It is produced by Terre di Cerealto, a pioneer company in Veneto for the cultivation of PIWI.

A still white IGT from a blend of johanniter (60%) and bronner (40%) grapes grown at 700 meters above sea level by the Terre di Cerealto company , one of the first companies in Veneto to believe and plant only resistant. Produced for the first time in 2017, Cerealto is now available in the 2018 vintage. "The second vintage of a wine is always the most difficult - explains Massimo Reniero , founder of Terre di Cerealto together with Silvestro Cracco - especially when the previous one is gone. as well as in the case of Cerealto 2017 . In the 2018 vintage the climatic conditions were extremely favorable and the perfect ripeness of the grapes enhanced their peculiarities: character and personality for the johanniter and finesse and elegance for the bronner. The musts were generous and the new wines immediately showed great structure . The elevage on the lees allowed us to preserve their freshness and increase the complexity ”. The ethics of Terre di Cerealto has always turned to full respect for the fragile ecosystem of the foothills and, when selecting the vines to be bred in this high ground, the choice spontaneously fell on the PIWI. Thanks to the high tolerance of disease-resistant vineyards , most of the phytosanitary treatments have been eliminated while only active ingredients of natural origin, plant extracts, microorganisms or beneficial insects are used , which favor environmental sustainability. The grapes, harvested by hand in boxes, are vinified separately for each single plot, while the refinement consists of seven months on the fine lees and six months in the bottle before being put on the market. The result is an aromatic wine with a vibrant acidity, balanced and perfect as an aperitif or paired with fish-based dishes, especially raw, and fresh vegetables. The enveloping palate given by the partial aging in barrique also allows the combination with more structured dishes such as white meats and savory pies. The johanniter is a white grape variety obtained in 1968 in Germany from a crossing of several Rieslings. The harvest is early and the vines are characterized by a high production and by medium-sized bunches, which at the moment of full ripeness take on a yellow-green color with small black dots on the skin. The scents are intense, fruity and balanced by a note of acidity. In the mouth it recalls pinot grigio and riesling thanks to the notes of quince, pear and mandarin, while the aftertaste can be slightly spicy. Bronner, on the other hand, was born in Germany in 1975 from the crossing of the merzling grape with the sankt laurent. Vigorous white berried grape, particularly resistant to downy mildew and powdery mildew, able to give wines with good structure and medium acidity. The nose has hints of fruit, lemon and exotic fruits, but also honey, while in the mouth it has a good mineral note and is characterized by a long persistence. Terre di Cerealto Born in 2015 from the idea of friends Massimo Reniero and Silvestro Cracco, the winery is located in the small plateau of Cerealto, a hamlet of Valdagno (Vicenza). The vineyards extend over just 2.7 hectares of land and are grown at over 700m above sea level, in an uncontaminated area overlooking the Little Dolomites. The first plants were by Johanniter and Bronner, which today occupy respectively 0.64 and 1.30 hectares, to which 0.7 hectares of Sauvignier Gris have just been added, for a total of eight different crus.

Consorzio Etna Doc excellent expectations from the 2020 harvest

Consorzio Etna Doc excellent expectations from the 2020 harvest

The varied collection on the four sides of Etna, among the last in Italy to end, has just come to an end. More than positive first results: healthy, ripe and balanced grapes. "High quality with peaks of excellence".

"We are certainly very satisfied and we think we can obtain high quality wines from the 2020 vintage" comments Antonio Benanti, President of the Consortium for the Protection of Etna DOC wines . "The territory of Etna is heterogeneous by nature. I am not referring only to the effect that the lava flows, over time, have had in the creation of many extraordinary differences and nuances even on land that is very close to each other. Here the vineyards, rigorously of native varieties, they extend at variable altitudes, from 400 to over 1000 meters, and on different slopes, with very peculiar microclimates. Net of this extraordinary variety that distinguishes us, this year we have been able to find some objective aspects, present almost everywhere, which make us think of a vintage capable of giving wines of remarkable balance and elegance. Aspects that often characterize Etna wines, but which we believe will be particularly accentuated this year " . The Etna harvest began in the second half of September with the harvest of the first grapes for the sparkling wine bases and ended, among the last in Italy, at the end of October with the two red grape varieties, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. "A first aspect to underline is that, apart from individual and limited cases, we have not recorded any damage due to hail or frost - continues Antonio Benanti -. It is not such a foregone conclusion" . The ripening of the grapes was generally regular and, even considering the peculiarities of each variety, the different altitudes and characteristics of the four sides, certainly excellent. "On average, the white grape varieties, starting from Carricante, ripened later than in other years on the four sides of Etna. The red grapes, on the other hand, had a more regular ripening and a classic harvest date" . Although it is still too early to provide data in this sense, the 2020 harvest seems to be satisfactory also from a quantitative point of view. "The harvest has just ended and therefore it is premature to provide estimates on volumes. The first impression is of an excellent year in all respects, and this is good news considering that a very complicated year is about to end due to the ongoing health emergency caused by the pandemic " says the Director of the Consortium, Maurizio Lunetta . Going into the details of the different slopes of Etna, there is no lack of confirmation about the quality of the harvest just ended, but at the same time the photograph of the many differences present within a denomination rich in facets. "It is certainly a vintage that we feel we can define as excellent" comments Margherita Platania, producer on the South-West side, with vineyards located at an altitude of 1000 meters . "The initial phase of the season was slightly earlier, but in general we recorded a regular ripening trend. The climatic conditions of this side, with more hours of solar radiation and large temperature variations between day and night, excellent ventilation and scarcity of rain, allowed us to extend the start date of the harvest and thus obtain a slow and perfect ripening of the grapes, including skins and pips. We are satisfied, the grapes promise great things " . Moving to the South-East , an area that benefits from both the influence of the sea and an excellent brightness, we find the ideal conditions for the cultivation of both Nerello Mascalese and Carricante, the comment remains positive. "The ripening of the grapes was very balanced, with the white berried grapes delayed by about ten days compared to usual, so much so that we harvested them together with the red berried ones" explains this time Fabio Costantino, producer with vineyards positioned between 500 and 600 meters above sea level . "This year the growth of the vegetative part both in the field and on the vine has been decidedly abundant: a sign that highlights a great well-being of the plant and that made it necessary to take even more careful care in the vineyard" . The east side, set between the volcano and the sea with often very steep vineyards, is characterized by the preponderant presence of Carricante, which here takes on notes of freshness and incisiveness of particular distinctiveness. "It was a vintage that we do not find it difficult to judge as very beautiful, both from a qualitative and quantitative point of view" explains Fabio Percolla, with vineyards located 900 meters above the sea . "The weather, this year, was an excellent travel companion: we brought very healthy grapes to the cellar which, if desired, could have remained even longer on the plant. The rainfall, typically present on this side, which is concentrated above all in the period in October and November, this year it was less present and allowed us to harvest with greater serenity " . Finally, on the north side, traditionally recognized as the main area for Nerello Mascalese and where, at the highest altitudes, the last DOC vineyards are usually harvested, the watchwords are balance, depth and freshness. "The 2020 vintage can be considered more than satisfactory, with peaks of absolute excellence in the crus" comments the producer Marco De Grazia, from his vineyards located between 600 and 1000 meters above sea level . "The vintage was characterized by a cool and rainy spring followed by a summer with few heat peaks in mid-August. As a result, we recorded a considerable delay in veraison and maturation in general, both of the Carricante and of the Nerello Mascalese. Finally, a surprisingly mild October, accompanied by an extraordinary vegetative richness, allowed us a slow and long ripening and in the end very healthy grapes " . "We are confident, it is a harvest that allows us to make very healthy grapes with all the necessary characteristics, on all sides, to obtain wines of great balance and finesse", concludes President Benanti.

FRANCESCO PAGANI THE PERSONAL SOMMELIER WHO TELLS WINE TO HIGH FINANCE

FRANCESCO PAGANI THE PERSONAL SOMMELIER WHO TELLS WINE TO HIGH FINANCE

In recent years, the world of finance has begun to become more and more interested in the world of wine precisely because the awareness has spread that some labels, in the long term, are real "investments".

Wine is not only the prerogative of gourmets and enthusiasts of the category, the world of finance is the new player who in recent years has begun to take an interest in the sector, precisely because the awareness has spread that some labels, in the long term, are real "investments". After all, finance and wine have a great element in common: the passage of time, the waiting for an investment to bear fruit and the years that pass for a wine to express its maximum potential and, why not, also its value. . Here then, to move into the intricate world of vintages to remember, unmissable labels and "eternal" wines, a new professional figure is emerging, that of the sommelier for the world of finance. No longer an expert in charge of tasting in the dining room or on the occasion of an event, therefore, but a professional with the responsibility of explaining and illustrating the potential and opportunities that the wine sector offers to an audience of non-experts. And it is this particular type of offer that distinguishes Francesco Pagani , a 360-degree consultant in the wine world and specialized in wine events dedicated to the corporate world. "Over the years I have curated numerous events in the financial environment and this has allowed me to specialize in the entertainment of a high-profile clientele who often and willingly see wine only as a drink and not as a means of generating curiosity and culture or, again, a real possibility of diversification "- Pagani himself says-. "My mission is to convey to customers the passion and emotions that fuel this extraordinary world and this is precisely the keystone in events, especially corporate, to entertain and really involve the participants". Starting from this service, Francesco has dedicated a lot of time and energy to the selection of wines for private wineries, tailoring each bottle to be included in the collections of his customers, accompanying them, label after label, on a path designed especially for them and telling story, soul and territory of each selected wine. And not only that, over the years it has created numerous networks with financial consultants to whom it has offered complete advice regarding the wine world: from the opinions on the various realities to the presentation of shopping opportunities while emphasizing the value of wine from a cultural point of view. and also economical.

VENETO WINE EXPORT WELL IN 2019 2.35 BILLION / EURO 5% BUT NOW EYE COVID-19

VENETO WINE EXPORT WELL IN 2019 2.35 BILLION / EURO 5% BUT NOW EYE COVID-19

The growth of Veneto wine exports continued in 2019, but now concerns come from the consequences of the pandemic. Exploit of sparkling wines, Prosecco in the lead (10.5%). Average sales prices decreased (-9.4%). All the data in the new Veneto Agriculture report.

A growth trend, moreover in line with Italian wine exports, which seemed unstoppable, until unfortunately the crisis due to Covid-19 arrived at the beginning of 2020. The picture of Veneto wine exports in 2019 has just been taken by Veneto Agriculture in its new Report " The export of Veneto wine in the world ", full of data and insights. The technicians of the regional agency note that the quantities of wine produced also increased in 2019 ( 15.8% ) compared to the 788 million kg of wine sold. As a consequence of the greater increases in volumes compared to total collections, there were, however, decreases in average sales prices , with the average total which stopped at € 2.99 / liter , thus marking an annual decrease of -9, 4% and returning to 2017 levels. The report of the regional agency also highlights that the exploit of Venetian sparkling wines continued, obviously headed by Prosecco , which in 2019 achieved a total collection of 920 million euros and an increase in value of 5% compared to 2018. If the exported quantities of Prosecco grow by 10.5% (239 million kg), the average price , on the other hand, drops to 3.85 euros / liter ( -4.9% ). On the other hand, the market for still wines in bottle is more stable, given that the almost € 1.30 billion collected from sales abroad in 2019 corresponds to an increase of 5.7% compared to 2018, with volumes sold growing by 9, 3% (4 million total hectoliters), while the average price fell by -3.2% (3.24 euros / liter). The Veneto Agriculture technicians also focused on those which are the major outlet markets for Veneto wine. Also in 2019 the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany positioned themselves at the top of this special ranking. This is a scenario that is characterized by the strong centralization of sales in a few countries, with all the positive and negative consequences that derive from it. Suffice it to say that in the last ten years the American market has grown by 148.2% , the British by 227.5% , while the German market is more stagnant, rising "only" by 40%. The painful notes for the wine sector, as indeed for all other sectors of agriculture, made their appearance this year with the outbreak of the pandemic from Covid-19 , which did not spare Italian wine exports. that in the first half of the year , turnover fell by -3.4% ( 2.91 billion euros ). At the same time, Veneto has so far lost revenues by -3.6% ( 1.03 billion in turnover ) compared to the same period of 2019. In addition, in the first six months of the year the wine sector also had to deal with the well-known problems related to the catering sector , which, due to the first lockdown , saw receipts collapse to almost zero in the Easter period. Today the main players in the national wine sector are hoping to revive the fortunes of their sales abroad during the Christmas period , but the second wave of the pandemic and the related restrictions in place do not bode well.

MAMABLIP ONLINE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AT THE DISPOSAL OF MADE IN ITALY FOOD AND WINE CULTURE

MAMABLIP ONLINE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AT THE DISPOSAL OF MADE IN ITALY FOOD AND WINE CULTURE

From the experience of the well-known Sommelier and Wine Educator Filippo Bartolotta, of the tour operator Le Baccanti and of the MaMa Florence cooking school, MAMABLIP is born: a multipotential platform to spread the wisdom and joie de vivre of Italian conviviality all over the world.

The situation of the past months has served as a flywheel to accelerate a thought, an innovative business idea, which for some time had been hovering in the minds of Filippo Bartolotta , a well-known Sommelier and Wine Educator, and Vanessa Held , a creative entrepreneur: to give life to a platform where the virtual met the real, where the Made in Italy experience was disclosed as much as possible by creating a virtual square where users could gather in a convivial way and learn how to use the excellent products that Italy offers us at the table. After having created hundreds of cultural and gastronomic itineraries for the promotion of Italy and its extraordinary productive world. After having organized cooking classes all over the country and having built their own cooking school, MaMaFLorence, today Bartolotta and Held also spread the concept of sustainable Mediterranean cuisine online, thus taking us into the new era of conviviality. "The Mamablip portal, with the best of technology available, represents a sort of virtual reality of food and wine and travel in which a community of enthusiasts can have fun, learn, buy products and experiences while always remaining in contact with instructors, chefs and journalists ", says Bartolotta, already known in the sector as the" Sommelier of the Stars "for having guided the likes of Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, Jessica Alba and the Obama family visiting Italy into the magical world of Italian wine. The idea, born after a phase of deep listening to users, was then developed using cutting-edge technologies and selecting a team of experts and content creators who daily increase the platform by offering new video content, blogs, recipes and courses. A real virtual hub, the first of its kind in Italy, which looks at Italian users and winks at foreign ones, offering everything that is beautiful Italy can offer. Much more than an online course portal, much more than a blog and an e-shop. Mamablip is an all-round Italian experience where great professionals of Italian food and wine make their expertise available to lovers of good food and corkscrew curious, offering interactive cooking courses where you can get your hands on pasta, lessons on live wine , tastings, video recipes and many other useful contents to master the art of good cooking, including combinations. And the journey does not stop there: the main ingredients of the various contents are available for purchase in the shop of the platform, where live experiences related to the supply chain of the products themselves are also offered, such as a visit to the Modena vinegar factory where you can discover the birth of the IGP vinegar, the tasting in the cellar to sip the wines directly with the producer or the tour of the dairy to touch the making of the cheeses interpreted in the recipes. All lived together, because the sharing of stories, experiences, knowledge, recipes and a glass of good wine is the philosophy behind MamaBlip: to bring together people near and far around a table, toasting Italy and excellence. that represent it.

“More than sparkling wines: a journey through Prosecco DOC and Asolo Prosecco DOCG”: the masterclass dedicated to English operators which aims to narrate the different expressions of the two Denominations.

The Consortia of the two Denominations will be the protagonists of the digital masterclass “More than sparkling wines: a journey through Prosecco DOC and Asolo Prosecco DOCG” scheduled for Monday 23 November , at 4.00 pm . Sommeliers, distributors and importers operating on the English market will take part in the tasting. The event, led live from London by the Master of Wine Alistair Cooper , aims to explore the different expressions that characterize the two Appellations starting from the territory, from the history, from the production techniques. To taste the wines of five producers of Asolo Prosecco (Cantina Montelliana, Conte Loredan Gasparini, Montelvini, Val d'Oca, Villa Sandi) and five of Prosecco DOC (La Marca, Le Rughe, Masottina, Piera 1899, Ponte 1948). "This London masterclass - explains Ugo Zamperoni , president of the Asolo Prosecco Consortium - certainly represents a precious opportunity to highlight some significant and specific facets of the Prosecco world, but, beyond the promotional aspects themselves, I am proud and happy that a common will has created the opportunity for a synergistic inter-consortium initiative, because there is still a common thread that historically unites our two denominations and that also binds us through many companies, which are producers of both Prosecco DOC, and Asolo Prosecco ". “For some time - added Stefano Zanette , president of the Prosecco DOC Consortium - I have argued that our system should present itself as a magnificent choir, where different voices can be joined to propose pieces that, in terms of intensity and beauty, have no equal. For this reason, as Prosecco DOC, we have accepted Asolo Prosecco's proposal to create an event that, remaining in terms of music, we could define "four-handed", proposing them to share a masterclass aimed at operators from across the Channel ".
