Red Dawn, In The Glass (Tasting Albarossa In Monferrato)

Vinted on January 4, 2018 binned in 1WineDude TV, Italian Wine

For the most recent installment of the Monferrato in the Glass series over at MyNameIsBarbera.com, we provide another deeper dive into the vinous wares of the region, once again with Bava‘s Paolo Bava.

Paolo introduces me to Piedmonte’s version of Red Dawn: Albarossa. Albarossa has a unique history, even by historical-embarrassment-of-riches Italian standards. It’s actually relatively new, and something that really only could have been conceived within the hilly borders of Piedmonte (you can read up a bit more on Albarossa’s storied past here).

After viewing the vid below, you’ll have a much better idea of why drinking this wine will make you want to pronounce Albarossa with a slow, voluptuous, sing-songy Italian accent.

AAAAHL-baaahhh-ROOOOWWWW-ssssaaaahhhhhhh…..

Cheers!

Like A True Nature’s Child (Exploring The Wildness Of Grignolino)

Vinted on September 13, 2017 binned in Italian Wine, learning wine

Grana

My latest article for the online celebration of all things vinous in Monferrato, MyNameIsBarbera.com, is now available; and in it, I explore the born-to-be-wildness of one of Italy’s most unsung fine wine grapes, Grignolino.

If you’ve never tried a good Grignolino before, you’re un-enviably currently missing out, but are enviably in for a real treat – it’s one of the most unique red wine drinking experiences you’re likely to have, and therefore one of the most geekily memorable, as well.

Hit up the link below for the full article. When you’re finished reading, if you find yourself feeling the kind of thirst that only a Grignolino is gonna quench, I suggest hunting for one from Vini Evasio Garrone, based in Grana. They won’t be easy to find, but they’re worth the effort. One of that family-run business’  head-honchos, Dante Garrone, is a tireless champion of the grape; he also happens to be a good guy and a serious Raiders of the Lost Ark fan…

GRIGNOLINO D’ASTI: BORN TO BE WILD

Cheers!

Moonwalking With The Original King Of Pop Wines (Exploring Barbera d’Asti For MyNameIsBarbera.com)

Vinted on June 29, 2017 binned in 1WineDude TV, Italian Wine, learning wine

The latest episode in the Barbera: In The Glass series is now live at MyNameIsBarbera.com, and in it I continue my conversation with Vinchio and Vaglio‘s Tessa Donadieu. This time, we focus on the next “level” of the Barbera quality pyramid in Monferrato (which, as I have written before, I don’t think is a “pyramid” per se, but whatever): Barbera d’Asti.

This will, of course, be the level of Barbera with which the majority of those reading these words and viewing this vid will be most familiar. And with good reason; it’s basically the Michael Jackson of Italian red wine (hell, maybe of fine red wine, period).

For the record, I don’t actually moonwalk in this vid. But rest assured that I’m diligently working on it…

Cheers!

Give Us This Day Our Daily Red (Talking Piemonte Barbera DOC At MyNameIsBarbera.com)

Vinted on June 20, 2017 binned in Italian Wine, learning wine, on the road

Piemonte Barbera 2016

For my latest entry over at MyNameIsBarbera.com, we return to some video action for the Barbera: In the Glass  section. In this short episode, I get schooled by Vinchio and Vaglio‘s Tessa Donadieu on why the wine that forms the base of the Monferrato Barbera quality pyramid – the Piemonte Barbera DOC – ought to be my go-to daily red wine.

As I lay out in the introduction to the vid, Tessa has a (very) good case; not just for me, but probably for you, too, if you dig zesty Italian reds.

You can check out the vid in the embed below, and see more in the Your Daily Wine (Piemonte Barbera) article over at the MYiB site.

Cheers!
