Piana Dei Castelli

Follia Sauvignon 2017

Not anymore a straight Sauvignon i got told
It has grechetto, riesling and perhaps trebbiano and malvasia too
It doesn't lose its marvellous mineral character
It resembles a Sancerre made with very ripe grapes, in fact there is a tendency with Matteo Ceracchi to harvest the Sauvignon at least, as far as I know, 10 to 15 days later than usual
Complexity benefits from this and still the wine doesn't lack freshness
It's long and promising
I am very happy i found a Matteo's wine so well made again after such a long time i hadn't tried it
Try it yourself if you can
Ps. I love the statement on the back label
OGNI BOTTIGLIA PUÓ ESSERE DIVERSA which translates to "Each individual bottle might be different"❤

Cesanese del Piglio Rospiglioso 2018

Favorite wine of the night. Indigenous grape from Lazio (Rome), great balance with a meaty, chewy tasty finish. Cheers. — a month ago

Alimento Orange 2020

Unfiltered, unconventional and unarguably delicious
Orange with no compromise
Mandarin, herbs,, candied ginger and mineral
Long and refreshing
So much fun
It reminds me vividly of the Wildman blanc of Lucy Margaux
I promise to myself i will buy a case once back in Rome

Le Coste

Bianco de Coccio 2019

A month of skin contact and a year in amphora
Mainly Procanico which is a typical variety of the Northern Lazio
The result is muscular, little tannic, with a mix of stone fruits and a remarkable mineral that gives a bonus to this very enjoyable orange wine.
As per many other macerated it showed better when a bit warmer.
Long aftertaste
I was very pleased with this bottle

Still thumbs up and i am curious to have this bottle in 6 months time..just because

Tufaliccio Lazio Sangiovese Blend 2020

Plenty of acid, but a light body. Huge amounts of jam and fruit, balanced by a bit of crushed rock. Yum! Goes down fast — 6 days ago
