Join our tour of Italy!
Italy is coming into its summer now but we still feel the lingering effects of ours. What does this mean? That it’s still white wine o’clock!!
The days might be shorter but our thirst for white summery wines hasn’t waned yet.
As an homage to Italy, we at Accent on Wine have put together a special offer for you this week: an interesting 6 pack including 3 delicious Italian wines from the North, Central and South of this beautiful country we are all clamouring to get back to.
If you can’t make it in person, these wines will still take you there!
The brothers Gaetano and Vito Marangelli fell in love with Salento, a beautiful region at the Southern end of Apulia in Southern Italy, often referred to as the "heel" of the Italian "boot". They had the dream to combine 3 different realities: a winery, a restaurant and an organic farm and so in 2002 Menhir was born. Menhir is situated in Minervino di Lecce, a hidden little town with a lot of history. It hosts, in fact, intact archaeological sites and it’s famous for its scattered upright rough monoliths called menhirs, hence the name. The Sale Bianco is a blend of two native aromatic varieties, Fiano and Malvasia that is bursting with fresh and fragrant aromas, notes of exotic fruit, mango, melon and peach and hints of white flowers. On the palate it’s fresh and crisp but with a nice creamy texture and a subtle almond note which adds another dimension to the wine. It’s the perfect companion for raw fish and fresh cheeses but also ideal with ethnic dishes like couscous.
If one thing’s for sure, Prosecco is loved by all! But there is Prosecco and Prosecco and Ruggeri is definitely one of our favourites. Located in the famed Santo Stefano village in the heart of the Prosecco wine region, the Ruggeri winery is overlooking the dramatic, dream-like beauty of the steep slopes dotted with century old Glera vines. This splendid hilly area enjoys a unique blend of climate, soil and exposure producing the best quality grapes of the entire appellation hence resulting in wines with the finest texture, concentration and the greatest length. Ruggeri is a family owned winery with a centuries-old tradition in viticulture but it’s also considered a benchmark for quality Prosecco. Ruggeri’s beautiful Prosecco is bursting with fruity and floral aromas of green apple, pear and lemon finishing with a touch of almond which adds complexity. Crisp acidity and persistent fine bubbles lead into a dry, refreshing finish. In 2 words? Graceful and vibrant. Perfect as an aperitif and ideal with fish, this wine goes particularly well with hors d’oeuvres and light first courses.
Wine experts consider the Garofoli winery a jewel among the wineries of the Marche region. Started in 1871 by Antonio Garofoli, it has become synonymous with top quality thanks to hard work and the family desire to improve and strive for excellence in every single detail from the vineyards to the winemaking techniques, always respecting the traditions and the territory. Podium is made from one of Italy’s oldest known white grape varieties – and undoubtedly one of its best and most characterful, Verdicchio. Grown from old vines, this is a Verdicchio that is incredibly perfumed, full bodied and concentrated with plenty of weight and texture that can age well for up to a decade. Expect to find flavours of lemon and ripe yellow fruit combined with a note of honey, almond and nuts. Verdicchio goes extremely well with food: a perfect accompaniment for seafood dishes and poultry flavoured with herbs.
