Verdeca ‘Talò’ 2019, San Marzano, Puglia

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish ‘Cantine San Marzano’. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers.

Using modern and technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir.

In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded European Producer of the Year 2017.

Verdeca is a rare white wine grape variety from southern Italy, now found almost exclusively in the Taranto and Bari provinces of central Puglia.

There is evidence suggesting that Verdeca, like many Italian grape varieties, may have originated further east in the Mediterranean, in either Croatia or Greece.

This is a bone-dry Verdeca which shows a richness of aromatics, white flowers, crisp green apple and a hint of honey. Full flavoured, with a creamy texture and a long and intense finish.

The Toccos however are far more diligent, managing yields carefully to obtain grapes of great quality.

This organic Pecorino is bright in colour, intense lemon zest and heaps of minerality. Fresh and very drinkable, also a great food wine.

Monte Bernardi Sangiò Chianti Classico DOGC 2019, Tuscany, Italy

Even though the estate Monte Bernardi dates back to 1085 in the region of Panzano in Tuscany, Michael Schmelzer and family purchased the estate in 2003 and have been making beautiful Sangiovese-based wines and olive oil ever since.

The property’s vineyards are situated in the hilly, southern-most region of Panzano, an area that has been acknowledged as one of the “Grand Crus” of Chianti Classico. Most of the vineyards are more than 40 years old, with the vines of the Sangiò harking back to 1970.

Before 1992, the grapes were sold to neighbouring farms. The Schmelzer family, originally from Michigan, purchased Monte Bernardi in 2003. As winemaker, Michael has invested time, love and money in the vineyards, the winery and villa. The property was certified biodynamic in 2004.

The vineyards are perfectly situated at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level, surrounded by forests and enjoying a southern exposure, with the river Pesa flowing just a few hundred metres to the south. The estate has been certified organic and bio-dynamic since 2004. Grass and cover crops are grown in alternate rows: composted cow manure and biodynamic preparations are used. Harvesting is by hand, usually from late September until mid-October. Annual production is between 55,000 and 65,000 bottles. None of the wines is filtered.

Sangiò comes from a vineyard above the village of Panzano in Chianti, and the vines hark back to 1970. The vineyard is in conversion from practicing organic to being certified. Once this certification takes place, the fruit used for Sangiò will go into Monte Bernardi’s other wines like the Retromarcia. The wine is natural and vegan.

This wonderful 2019 Chianti Classico DOGC has notes lovely floral notes, and a palate of crisp red fruits and sour cherries.

Grapes: Sangiovese

Abv: 13.5%

Bottle: 750ml

Serve with dishes in tomato sauces such as ragu, charcuterie & cheese boards.
