BOOM! Volcanic Wines
You’ll Lava them…
6 mixed bottles (1 bottle of each)
Barone, Fiano « Particella 928 » 2017 - Cesinali, Avellino – Campania
Rich golden in colour, a touch honeyed, floral, rich in acidity, with a touch of glycerine on the palate that makes it feel a bit “warmer” and less savoury than the Marsella. The wine bangs with minerals, and has really good length.
Domaine aux Moines, VDF « Le Berceau des Fées » 2018 - Savennières, Loire, France.
(100% Chenin Blanc. Organic-certified.)
Floral, incredibly fresh and zippy, this young vine Chenin is more reminiscent of Anjou Blanc than of its home terrain of Savennieres
Caravaglio, « Chianu Cruci » IGP Bianco 2018 - Salina Island off Northern Sicily
(Malvasia & Catarratto. Skin-macerated.) Golden and bright, a variety of aromas emerge from this wine: yellow flowers (chamomile), fine herbs (basil, rosemary, lesser calamint), followed by ripe yellow-pulp fruit (loquat, mango). This is a tangy wine with a long persistence in the mouth.
A Los Viñateros Bravos, Pais Volcánico 2019 - Itata, Guarilihue, Chile
The delicate underbrush aromas of Itatas wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis are aromas and flavours that characterise this wine. A fresh wine, delicate, marked by fine grain tannins that give a very unique structure and create a long lingering ending with a distinctive mineral character due to the volcanic soils where the old vines thrive.
Monte di Grazia, Rosso IGT Campania 2013 - Tramonti, Amalfi Coast, Campania
(Tintore & Piedirosso. Organic-certified.)
Dark in colour, almost black-violet. The nose is very inviting with bright cherry and stalky dark fruits. Plum, spice and lots of dark fruits, with succulent red and dark fruit palate, with hallmark freshness. The impression you get when smelling a wine just finishing fermentation with notes of hay.
Cave Verdier Logel, Côtes du Forez « Volcanique » 2019 - Marcilly-le-Chatel, in the region called ‘Forez’.
(100% Gamay. Organic-certified.)
Wonderful aromas of black raspberries, asphalt and chocolate with that familiar pepperiness on the finish that characterise the Gamays from the Auvergne & Forez.
