Italian wine tourism restarts with Wine Destinations Italia

Italian wine tourism restarts with Wine Destinations Italia

A rich program of events for the first edition of the format by the European Sommelier School of Livorno, which focuses on Wine Experience to relaunch the sector.

These are the numbers of the first edition of Wine Destinations Italia , scheduled in Livorno from 13 to 14 November at the Cruise Terminal and at the Silos dei Magazzini del Tirreno, a format organized by the Leghorn delegation of the European Sommelier School with the aim of offering concrete help to relaunch of wine tourism . To do this, alongside the many useful meetings to outline the current situation and future prospects of the sector, there is also the possibility of buying real Wine Experiences capable of linking wine and territory, to be experienced in the coming months at the participating companies. In fact, each of them is asked to offer wine lovers four experiential packages that combine the usual visit and tasting in the cellar with the surrounding tourist offer , thus highlighting the close link that exists between wine and terroir. Easily bookable on site and valid for the whole of 2022, these experiences distinguish Wine Destinations Italia from other themed events, aiming from now on to stimulate the restart of a sector that, on the eve of Covid, moved 15 million people for a estimated value of approximately € 2.65 billion. The task of taking stock of wine tourism will be up to thirteen conferences , which, starting from the round table "Enosustainable Tourism", will lead the rich audience of experts to deepen theoretical aspects and case histories related to tourist attraction, such as, for example, the role of training, urban and heroic vineyards, the Bolgheri and Montepulciano cases. And the territories will be the other protagonists of the event, thanks not only to the description that the companies will make of them but also to the participation of the Consortia of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Chianti Rufina, Maremma Toscana and the newborn Consorzio Suvereto and Val di Cornia, to which the Campania delegation of the Wine Tourism Movement will be added. They have the task of binding the many souls that make up their respective terroirs, in a story full of history and culture. To enrich the proposal dedicated to wine lovers there will also be eight masterclasses organized by Vigneron.wine in the Silos of the Magazzini del Tirreno area adjacent to the Terminal. Of these, four will be entitled 'A spasso nel tempo con Vigneron.wine! Only Blindly ', and, as announced by the name itself, will take place blindly, with old vintages of wines of which only the region of production will be known. In another three, two mini-verticals will take shape, the story of which will be entrusted to the producers themselves. At the last one, 'Tuscany vs Piedmont: twenty years later', the task of telling in the glass the evolutionary capacity of six labels from the two regions and produced between 1997 and 2004. But Wine Destinations also means sustainability , which is expressed in the commitment to choose settings and suppliers with a reduced environmental impact. Furthermore, thanks to a special account opened on the Treedom platform, part of the revenues from registrations and tickets sold will be used to plant trees to offset the CO2 generated during the two days of the event. From Friday 12 to Sunday 14 the event will also move between the premises of the city of Livorno thanks to the 'Livorno in showcase' project , which will bring both the restaurants belonging to the Vetrina Toscana circuit and those selected by the local delegation of the European Sommelier School to propose an ad hoc menu made with raw materials and local ingredients. " After almost two years of waiting, wine tourism is finally ready to resume its role as a driving force for the development of the many highly vocational areas in Italy - comments Carmen Licata , SES Livorno delegate - Just to accompany the post-Covid path we have conceived of Wine Destinations Italia, an event that arises from the collaboration of the many private individuals and associations who work every day to ensure that this phenomenon, of fundamental importance for the growth of not only rural economies, fully unfolds its potential. Our hope - he concludes - is to be able to contribute to the restart of the Italian system, with an event capable not only of imagining the future, but of offering a concrete response to that desire for discovery and sociality that the pandemic has repressed for too long ". For his part, Simone Nannipieri , manager of the event, specifies that " The possibility of buying experiences directly at the fair to live throughout the year to come is the long-awaited sign that the world of wine is ready to restart. Thank you. in the presence of companies and consortia from all over Italy, the many expected visitors will be able to choose the Wine Experience more in line with their expectations, giving shape to a holiday that, starting from a visit to the cellar, opens up to the exploration of the places that host, reiterating, if needed, how close is the relationship between wine and the reference territory ". The event is organized under the patronage of Mipaaf, the Tuscany Region, the Province of Livorno, the Municipality of Suvereto, the Maremma and Tirreno Chamber of Commerce, the Etruscan Coast Wine and Oil Road.

Trentino, with DiVin Ottobre the Wine and Flavors Route welcomes autumn

The days get shorter, the climate becomes more sparkling and that unmistakable scent of chestnuts is released into the air. It is autumn, with its explosion of colors that, illuminated by the sun's rays, give a truly magical touch to woods and valleys. And it is October, in particular, the month in which this show is repeated, never equal to itself. This is why for 16 years the Trentino Wine and Flavors Route has chosen it to organize a series of initiatives dedicated to this season every weekend, thanks to the involvement of over seventy members.

GREAT DEBUT for the first Riserva of Brunello Carpineto in the name of excellence

GREAT DEBUT for the first Riserva of Brunello Carpineto in the name of excellence

The Brunello Riserva 2015 by Carpineto in the TOP short list of Grande Esordio wines of the Gold Guide i Vini di Veronelli 2022. 25 new wines that, at their first appearance, have reached or exceeded the threshold of excellence with an evaluation equal to or greater than 94 cents.

In the year in which everything stopped, the debut of the first Riserva of Brunello Carpineto went not only in the sign of rebirth and restart but of excellence. Produced, like all Appodiati Carpineto , only in the best vintages, it has the same style of the 2015 Brunello which has attracted the attention of national and international wine critics at the highest levels while a 2016 hailed as the best ever. Grapes harvested only from the highest vineyard of all, where the gaze abandons itself to the widest breath. To sign the Riserva del Brunello di Montalcino 2015 is once again Caterina Sacchet , wine producer at the helm of Carpineto with Antonio Mario Zaccheo . "The 2015 vintage, not surprisingly with 5 stars, was a spectacular year at 360 degrees, characterized wines of great potential thanks to the high concentration of noble components. In the 2015 Brunello we perceive the excellent polyphenolic structure that generates a wine of great longevity and territorial typicality, which is why we decided to debut with the Riserva precisely with this vintage. Maybe having these vintages every year, enthuses Caterina Sacchet . The Appodiato di Montalcino di Carpineto , in a privileged position, 500 meters above sea level, in the locality of Rogarelli, is one of the highest settlements of the denomination and most panoramic with a view that sweeps from the historic center of Montalcino (from which it is 4 km) of which the entire perimeter of the walls is framed, in the Val d'Arbia, where the Via Francigena joins the ancient Cassia, and on clear days as far as Siena. Looking up then, beyond the first line of hills on the horizon to the east, you can even see the hills of the Chianti Classico above Siena. The smallest of the 5 Carpineto estates is among the most evocative: a sort of wine boutique with ancient stone farmhouses surrounded by centuries-old oaks and all around 53 hectares of land, 10 of which are vineyards planted with Sangiovese grosso trained with spurred cordon (3 , 5 h of Brunello, 5 h of Rosso di Montalcino, the rest Sant'Antimo Rosso), at a density of 5700 plants per hectare, an olive grove and a dense forest of oaks, holm oaks and Mediterranean scrub. From a geological point of view, the Appodiato di Montalcino is located on the undifferentiated complex of scaly clays, consisting mainly of schists, marly limestones and quartz sandstones. The slight northern exposure, in a panoramic and breezy position, gives the wines of this estate a unique microclimate, warm during the day and temperate and cool at night, which gives the Brunello intense and complex aromas, a beautiful freshness, elegance, refinement and great longevity. The elevated position of the vineyards, a great resource considering climate change, allows in fact a prolonged ripening, therefore a late harvest, as was done in the past, and the full ripening of the skins, ripe tannins but without losing acidity, the backbone of the wine. BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2015 RISERVA - CARPINETO The grapes of the Riserva come exclusively from the vineyard located higher up in the estate (500 meters above sea level), the grapes, harvested at the end of September, were hand-picked, selected and placed in special boxes in order to preserve the integrity of the grape during the short ride to the cellar. The panoramic and breezy position gives the wines great elegance, minerality and longevity. The excellent seasonal trend has made it possible to obtain grapes of excellent quality that characterize a great 5-star vintage. The perfect levels of ripeness in terms of color extractability and the high sugar content have generated a wine of great structure, ideal for long evolutions. The vinification was carried out by indigenous yeasts in steel tanks at a controlled temperature (25-30 ° C); in order to preserve the typical bouquet of Sangiovese, frequent pumping over and a long maceration on the skins are performed. The aging lasts for at least 42 months in 30 and 20 HL Slavonian barrels. Bottling is carried out without treatments of any kind or filtration, vegan friendly. The refinement in the bottle takes place in the cellar at a constant and controlled natural temperature and humidity. The color is intense ruby red, with a strong anthocyanin concentration, with light reflections tending to garnet. The aroma is intense and persistent, clear hints of wild berries with light nuances of vanilla, the light spicy note on the finish will find space with the evolution of this important wine The taste is confirmed amplitude and intensity that go to describe a wine of great depth and a long evolutionary path. The bottles produced are 6,000 THE CRITICISM Great Debut of the Gold Guide I Vini di Veronelli 2022 96 Wine Spectator A rich and harmonious ruby red, which presents intense flavors and complex aromas such as cherry, raspberry, iron, leather, undergrowth with a hint of cumin. It is elegant, succulent with a well integrated structure and endowed with great persistence. It reaches its peak from 2024 to 2046. 96 WineCritic Energetic and vibrant, it offers mixed floral and fruity hints of hibiscus, broken myrtle leaves, red plums and currants. The secondary frame is filled with memories of crusty bread and sandalwood. Medium-full body, precise and essential, it shows slightly rigid tannins at the moment that create the main backbone and a light and sharp finish in the modern and vertical closure. Thrilling. Better from 2022. 95 Doctor Wine 93 Vinous-Antonio Galloni Carpineto's Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 mixes a rich taste of plum sauce and brown spices with notes of wild herbs and white smoke. There is a component of flowery undergrowth that emerges over time and gives expressive completeness. It is deeply material with a savory character, a taste of cherry and sage sauce that give way to chocolate and hints of tobacco. The finish is structured and maintains balance, a young but also clean and fresh tannin is perceived. There is still a slight roughness that however gives an even more incisive taste experience. 93 Gilbert & Gaillard 93 Intravino Attack on notes of ash, then black currant and cherry with a touch of orange blossom. Fantastic wine, very well chiseled on tones that, on the one hand, seem to leave room for softness, on the other, delimit it with the rigor of a present, fine, punctual tannic texture. Very fresh finish, on beautiful fruity notes 92 Wine Enthusiast

Le Morette awarded for sustainable policies in wine tourism

Le Morette awarded for sustainable policies in wine tourism

The recognition to the Venetian company from the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, the network of the world capitals of wine, in the annual Best of Wine Tourism competition for the international promotion of wine tourism.

To motivate the awarding of the award "the possibility for the eno-passionate visitor to live the experience of sustainability that the Veronese company has promoted in its work". In fact, the good practices introduced are explained to the tourist in depth, with the possibility of touching the tools used in the vineyard and in the cellar. The path of sustainability for Le Morette begins with the inauguration, in 2013, of the current totally underground cellar , where the winemaking areas located on the underground floors exploit the natural thermal insulation of the soil for maximum energy savings. The sustainable choices are expressed in the cellar in the expansion of the photovoltaic system, which in a short time will bring back energy independence, given the company's growth in recent years. In the vineyard Le Morette adopts the practice of integrated pest management , which avoids the use of insecticides; the company uses a multi-row sprayer that allows to reduce the number of treatments by two thirds, consequently reducing soil compaction, fuel consumption and emissions and the intervention time. The presence of several hives near some vineyards confirms the company's great sensitivity towards nature. In 2020 Le Morette also obtained the “Biodiversity Friend” certification for a sustainable agriculture model, with low environmental impact and integrated into the landscape. “I really love the Amerindian proverb that says 'the Earth is not an inheritance received from our fathers, but a loan to be repaid to our children'. With this in mind - says Fabio Zenato , co-owner of Le Morette together with his brother Paolo - we choose precise working methods aimed at sustainable agriculture, favoring those natural processes that allow the conservation of the 'environmental resource', with great attention to its use. of water. Our company philosophy - concludes Zenato - is based on the solid link with the territory and on the attention to sustainability that you breathe when entering our cellar: a completely new structure, built with the utmost respect for nature and surrounded by vineyards. It is a project that focuses above all on agricultural and functional aspects as well as on environmental awareness, using clean energy from renewable resources ". The Great Wine Capitals Global Network annually announces the competition for the international promotion of wine tourism, the network that since 1999 has brought together the great wine capitals of the world and which has as its objective the development and mutual promotion of wine tourism within and outside the territorial boundaries.

The famous Philosopher's Stone was none other than the result of an alchemical work. A work that had the sole purpose of obtaining the Stone, that Stone that would transform base metals into gold and be, at the same time, a perfect medicine against any disease. We do not do alchemy and we do not transform metals but we have learned, with great passion, to transform the good milk of our goats into the excellent Robiola di Roccaverano DOP.

Tenute Vinicole Agricole

The farm is located in the heart of the Castelli Romani

The farm is located in the heart of the Castelli Romani

15 (fifteen) hectares in a single body, entirely fenced, with organic recognition for the marketing of products.

Property Description   15 (fifteen) organic hectares, on a single plot of land, entirely fenced.   The surface is suitable for any type of crop, currently cultivated with vineyards (8 ha) and olive groves (about 2 ha).   Inside the farm there are various buildings:   one is used as office; it has a tasting room and it is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom and dressing room.   Another one is a 170sqm warehouse, where all vehicles and equipment are recovered.   The biggest building is the main villa; about 400sqm on two levels, completely fenced and surrounded by its own garden.   There is a canopy for car parking.   Some small warehouses for gardening equipment.   Two artesian wells, one serving the buildings, the other for the vineyard.     Vineyard Varietals grown in vineyards are divided as follows:   2 hectares of Trebbiano Verde, Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia Puntinata; 3 hectares Cesanese; 1 hectare Syrah; 2 hectares Montepulciano;     Olive grove Plants are traditional olive trees, not intensive implantation, with mixed varieties; mainly are Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino.   This diversity promotes high quality and correct pollination of plants.   From the olives produced, the result is a superior quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil.   Inside the farm there are 18 (eighteen) swarms of bees, with their hives and all the equipment for organic honey production. All swarms are reported and registered with the competent veterinary ASL, with a regular company code issued by the Lazio Region.   Bamboo In May 2022 one hectare of giant bamboo has been planted.   Economic exploitation Vineyard Today, the main source of income comes from the sale of grapes. Thanks to the varieties planted, the grapes produced find space in a medium/high-level market. Cesanese and Syrah, deriving from organic farming, are not so common in the Lazio region. Then, by combining some varieties, it is possible to claim DOC wines. DOC wine, which is most increasing for export demand, is the DOC Roma. On the farm it is possible to produce up to 400 quintals of (red) grapes of the latter product. The vineyard has been planting and cultivating with the purpose of producing high quality grapes; with low production yields and high sugar levels. This high quality of grapes makes them easily sellable, even at higher prices compared to the average regional market. All eight hectares of vineyards have a drip irrigation system. This prevents water shocks to the plants, guaranteeing healthy and ripe grapes even in particularly dry and rain-free seasons for prolonged periods. The vineyard has all the canons of modern cultivation, of young age, between 4 and 15 years. The whole system is "a spalliera", suitable for mechanized processing (harvesting, pre-pruning, fertilizing, topping, etc.), allowing a reduction in time and, therefore, management costs. Production at full capacity amounts to a total of 1,200 quintals of grapes (120,000 kilos). These make possible to obtain about 1,000 hectolitres (100,000 litres) of wine; meaning 130,000 750ml bottles. Olive grove The farm has about 500 olive trees of different varieties; mainly: Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino. This diversity allows constant production over time and correct pollination of all plants. Up today there are about 300 plants in full production. The rest were planted 5/6 years ago and therefore not yet at full capacity. In the space of 3/4 years it is estimated to have a production between 70 and 100 quintals (10,000 kilos) of Organic olives. The olive grove allows the production of superior quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The quantity of oil produced can vary from year to year; the yield is, on average, at 10%/13%. It means that 10,000 kilos, on average, produces 1,000/1,300 litres of oil. The milling is entrusted to an external mill, with which it is easy to find commercial agreements for the direct sale of the olives too. Again, given the quality and organic recognition, the selling price is on average higher than the regional market. Honey There are currently eighteen swarms of bees on the farm. The honey produced is the so called “Millefiori”. Production is granted thanks to the many varieties of plants and trees present throughout the farm. In fact, not only vines and olive trees, but fruit trees, roses, lavender plants and flowers to adorn the entire estate are cultivated too. The total organic management of the company is an optimal element for the life of bees. There is therefore no risk of poisoning or pollen pollution. All the honey produced is easily sold on all types of markets: restaurants, retail shops, and private customers. Bamboo In May 2022 one hectare of giant bamboo has been planted. It will reach the full production capacity in 2025/26, with a potential high income for the farm. In addition, for next 30 years, a fixed amount of money will be given to the farm, thanks to the bamboo high absorption of CO2. This investment was made by the farm to further diversify its income and cultivations.

Wine producers are at the mercy of many variables when it comes to trying to turn a profit. Consumer confidence and the weather are probably at the top of the list. Well, in Italy at least, first signs are that 2022 will be a good vintage, even as consumers’ tightening wallets are having a negative effect.

For reasons that are not completely clear, but which can mostly be filed under the heading “supply chain,” but which include rocketing costs for energy and raw materials, glass bottles are harder to find and much more expensive than they used to be. A wine maker buying glass bottles today could easily have to pay 30% more than they did last year. The wine sector accounts for something like 45% of the market for glass bottles, which until recently was on a rapid rise – currently over 5 million tonnes, compared with 4 million tonnes in 2016, valued at over 2.4 billion euros. Sparkling wine producers probably paid much more for their bottles last year than they did in 2020. Right on cue, SIPA now presents the first PET bottle in the world for sparkling wine. The company’s Packaging Development Team has developed a product that is perfect for replacing traditional glass bottles, capable of running on existing filling lines. A key part of the SIPA innovation is the bottle neck, which looks just like the glass version, meaning that it accepts the classical mushroom-shaped cork with its metal cage. The base also looks the same as the original. The design provides a top-load resistance of 3500N. The PET bottles have already been tested on glass lines, demonstrating perfect interchangeability with glass versions. Sparkling wine consumers will enjoy the same experience with the new containers as they always have, from uncorking to pouring. But they may notice that the PET versions are lighter at just 90g (glass bottle average weight for sparkling wine is 720/750g)  and less likely to break – which is also great for changing supply logistics as sales via e-commerce and home delivery continue to rise. It is always useful to mention that this dramatic decreasing on bottle weight may surely have a positive impact on Co2 emission due to a more efficient logistic. So...CIN CIN, as we say in Italy!

HARVEST 2021 in MASSETO

HARVEST 2021 in MASSETO

the happy fruit of a year of strong contrasts.

Each harvest is a blank page to write and brings with it a new experience and new knowledge to better interpret the vine plant and its extraordinary ability to respond to the stimuli of Nature. The 2021 vintage was insidious and characterized by strong contrasts everywhere, making the phenomenon of climate change that now characterizes seasonal trends more concrete and tangible. In Masseto, the great strength was certainly the responsiveness of the vines, helped, as the Director of the Estate Axel Heinz explains, by what he himself defined as 'resilience of the great terroirs': " its characteristics have made it possible to cushioning the climatic extremes and channeling them creating conditions that are limiting, but at the same time free of suffering. It is from these premises that great wines can be born . " Fundamental, in this critical atmospheric situation, were the characterizing elements of Masseto such as soil and microclimate. For the soil element, the presence of that blue clay, an element of uniqueness of Masseto, was decisive, capable of accumulating water reserves in the depth of the soil, to release only the amount of water necessary to avoid excessive stress on the vines and to overcome the summer drought. The microclimate, characterized by sea breezes and mild temperatures, sheltered from frosts in spring, while in summer it guaranteed the ventilation necessary to overcome excess heat. Here, then, is that the key to interpreting this complex season is once again the man-terroir combination. The synergy between the type of soil and production area, together with a work in the vineyard made of constancy and attention to every single detail, have made it possible to transform the pitfalls into exceptional strengths. The harvest, without a drop of rain from the first to the last day, began on August 30 with the youngest vines and the earliest plots of the upper Masseto. The Merlot harvest saw five different passages until mid-September while the Cabernet Franc was harvested between 15 and 28 September. The first sensations are those of a year of great style. As soon as the racking is finished, which is being completed in these days, the wines - which show great potential - will be transferred to the barriques where they will begin their long aging period. The road is still long but Axel Heinz tells his first sensations: “ the dry season concentrated the grapes, from which wines of great intensity and texture were born. The colors are particularly intense, as are the aromas, characterized by hints of fully ripe black berry fruit. In the mouth we find the unmistakable balance between richness and firmness that characterizes Masseto. The wines develop a rich and concentrated palate, with a dense and velvety tannic texture, the result of a careful and soft extraction, supported by a brilliant acidity that reminds us of some of the greatest vintages such as 2006, 2010 or 2016. " All expectations that will have to materialize in two years, when the wine has finished its refinement and is ready to go into the bottle. As is now established practice in Masseto, the actions in the cellar are limited to the maximum to let the wines find their natural balance between fullness and harmony that tell the bond of belonging to a terroir with an unmistakable identity. Masseto, as Axel Heinz describes it, is “truly a magical place where nature makes the most important decisions”. The novelties of the 2021 vintage 2021 also brought a novelty to the cellar with the arrival of Gaia Cinnirella, who starting from this harvest took on the role of enologist from Masseto under the supervision of Axel Heinz. Gaia, former Assistant Technical Director and later Head of Biondi Santi Vineyards from 2018-2021, declared herself enthusiastic to be able to contribute to the growth and oenological stability of a winery like Masseto: " After the internships at important realities such as Allegrini and Tenuta San Guido , I was able to develop my passion first in the Istine company and then in Biondi Santi. Now I am proud to be part of this incredible team and excited to be able to contribute with my work to the creation of wines with a unique character: a dream for those who, like me, love their work and live every experience as an opportunity for growth. The extremely stimulating and constantly evolving environment will be a challenge for me with an eye always looking forward, like a wine such as Masseto requires ".
