Sweet wine to start drinking

 TAGS:Muscat has never gone through such a good moment. From being regarded to very old ladies, from being almost exclusively used on those aged female meetings in between knitting and gossiping on neighbors, daughters in law and TV characters. It has scaled to fame as now it is placed in the top trend of cool drinks that a teenager can take. Oops, let's clear that, you cannot drink when you are a teenager... Then let´s say above twenty or whatever.

Spring is here! Long live the wine!

 TAGS:Spring is here! long live the wine! Yes, yes, do not look so surprised and let me explain you what I mean because I am sure you are going to understand it at first and I bet you that you will start feeling exactly the same way I do regarding this season... Once the last weekend of March is over, all I see reminds me of wine (in all its varieties, what I am going to hide it for?).

Cold wines for the summer

 TAGS:Summer this year with temperatures high enough to make us fear the worst for July, force us start looking for fresh wines as a light option to our regular wine choices. People like me, looking deep into the red flavors and intense aromas without half measures, should change their minds, for their own sake, and make their way towards new experiences, less direct and more evocative, less aged and a little younger.

For this temporary amendment purpose, I have prepared a list of wines that I would like to try, because of their freshness, novelty and also just because. During the colder months I have been postponing these tastings, preferring the security that knowing what will happen after uncorking gives to you, but spring is in the air and this saying also applies to wines.

Wines and bubbles from Piedmont

 TAGS:No doubt, the Greeks were right to call Italy "Enotria" which means land of wine. The climate, its rich soils and, of course, its wine tradition help us find a wide variety of high quality wines. In fact, Italy is one of the largest exporters of wine in the world, and sparkling wines from Piedmont region are some of these.

To the North, by the Alps and divided by the river Po we find the region which has 1/6 of the vineyards across Italy. It is called Piedmont. This region has a unique climate, almost magical, in which warm, humid summers and long and cold winters are usual. It also surprises the autumn fog which covers it all with its white veil. In this climate born the strains that get those special wines that will captivate us from the first sip and which we will not be able to forget. Furthermore, Piedmont wines are elaborated mostly with indigenous strains and they have guaranteed quality by several designations of origin. Grapes used to make these wines have some very special characteristics.
