Happy new year!
We are going to start 2019 in the best way possible, presenting our monthly selection of outstanding natural bottles on offer. We chose four unique wines coming from the Loire, France and Sicily, Italy: interesting, lively wines to enliven your January and help you get back on track after the Christmas holidays.
Are you searching for a red wine perfect with almost any main course, from the spicy and Asian ones to poultry, game and pork? Biscaris Frappato Barunieddu is the wine for you: fresh and lively, every bottle contains a vast bouquet of aromas, among which red fruits, mulberries, raspberries. Coming from the Frappato grape variety biodynamically farmed, Frappato Barunieddu is an outstanding example of Sicilian wine and it comes out in a small, nature-attentive production of just 20.000 bottles.
Fancy some rosé wine? Try a Château de La Roche en Loire Rosé and you won’t be disappointed. Fruity and light with juicy notes of red fruits, this rosé French wine from biodynamic farming is versatile and refreshing. Try it to accompany a creative aperitif or as a perfect match to shellfish and fish in general: as the Château de La Roche is certified organic and biodynamic from 2002, you know you will sip only the best of natural wine.
We step once again in France for our third wine of the month, an incredible Vieilles Vignes with deep red hues and round, intense aromas of black fruits, still fresh and savoury: Fabrice Gasnier produces this wine according to the rules of biodynamic farming, growing with love and attention outstanding Cabernet Franc grapes in the family domain in the Loire region. Here, thanks to the southern exposure and the gravelly and sand-clay soils, the wine tradition thrives and gifts us a unique collection of special, elegant wines. Try with red meat or cheese for a heavenly match.
Again Italy, again Sicily. The name of this wine already speaks of sunny days and freedom: Sole e Vento, literally translated as “Sun and Wind”, is an organic white wine by Marco de Bartoli that ultimately is a celebration, an exaltation of the beautiful land of Sicily. From his 20 hectares farm near the town of Marsala, where winemaking can boast a long and thriving tradition, Marco de Bartoli produces this light and easy grape nectar with lively and interesting notes, an ode to Sicily and its incredible environment and culture.
