Italian Wines

We have imported wines from Italy for over 20 years now and we find the wines ever more unfathomable, perhaps I am taking it too seriously for this is a country full of life, literally when considering the line of volcanic activity running up its spine, and the wines are born out of a love of food and friendship.

The unique line up of wines in every region is the result of history, it is not part of some big plan.
Italy was only unified in 1870 and it is a story of independent city states rather than of a nation. This independence ensured the diversity of culture, food and wine and local traditions have been proudly defended.
Again, the more I read the less I know.

  9. Zeni (Roberto). Grappa Trentina di Nosiola (70cl)

    After the Nosiola has been pressed the skins and their remaining juices are fermented and immediately distilled.  The result is a fine, delicate and floral spirit with hints of hazelnut.  A true reflection of the grape from which it was created.

  10. Zeni (Roberto). Grappa Trentina di Teroldego (70cl)

    Made from unpressed pomace which comes fresh from the fermented wines to the pot sills for distillation.  There is a remarkable freshness and purity of fruit to this grappa, there is reflection of the character of the wine and berry and plum shine through the spirit.
