Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2009

Finesse, delicacy, complexity and focus
Quince, cedar and thyme tea
White pepper, almond spread and white choc
A field of flowers(mainly yellow)
Lemon curds, dill, breadcrumbs and more and more
Seaweed and strongly marine
Whispered rather than shouted class
Every swirl is a discovery, a subtle win of aromas
Toffees and cappuccino coming out of the glass with the rising temperature
It goes without saying the fun
So long aftertaste
12% in alcohol
This is the gotha of the Italian white wines
Still decades ahead i am sure
It could easily rank a Grand Cru status
Grab it if you can..and then age it

Vivoli Monteregio di Massa Marittima Sangiovese

Tasted at the winery. Still a baby- tanic, with good potential — 3 years ago

I Vigneri di Salvo Foti

Vigna di Milo Etna Carricante 2014

Probably should've had this before the valentini. So cut and clean that it felt a bit small by contrast. But quite enjoyable nonetheless. — 4 years ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Cerasuolo 2009

Give a ring if there's anything else like it as a rose
It mingles with light reds easily, but has the fun part of a fresh rose with the complexity that unfolds over and over
The elegance is somewhere between a Volnay and a Barolo
Cola, raspberries, sweet tobacco, white choc, salted caramel, mou, forest floor, mushroom and slightly grillée
Nearly fizzy when opened
It was worth the wait
A star!!

Wow! Nice job shipping your whole cellar across. What a big job! I've been reading up about them since your note. They sound amazing... especially the Cerasuolo. It's an area I need to explore more. Tricky doing it from Australia! 😁

@Travis W Thanks, there was a lot of planning 🙂 Good luck with your hunt for Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo. Mind don't mix it with other Cerasuolo wines and one recommendation..look for Valentini or Pepe, everything else isn't quite as worth...

May I ask where did you have it?
Is it at La Gatta Mangiona?? Chez Giancarlo?

@Ceccherini Cristiano I had it at “Trattoria La Gatta” via Bellaria / Bologna (which I believe it’s the second place you mentioned).

Unfortunately I am not that good
I just saw that "La gatta" on the wine list and thought that Giancarlo owner of La Gatta mangiona" was likely to have that wine on the list, but not necessarily, I just wondered so I thought to ask
I know that at Roscioli in Rome they used to work with Valentini sfuso and I never got the chance to taste it though . I will make it happen one day, by now I am just a little jealous 😜😜
I am so far away that isn't gonna happen for a while 😭😭
