You missed the Partner in Wine 5 Bites / 5 Wines of October 2021, or just like to relive it again. Here is the selection of
Palmento Rosso 2020, Vino di Anna
Region: Etna Sicilia, Italy
Grapes: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante
Style: Fruity and juicy red
Vibrant ruby red in colour, this wine has attractive cherry and wild strawberries aromas with underlying floral notes. The palate is fresh and flavoursome with soft, juicy tannins. This is a beautiful, lighter expression of Nerello Mascalese (and various other native grapes).
Carignan 2017, Familia Cecchin
Region: Maipú - Mendoza
Style: Ripe and elegant red
Complex aromas of black fruits like cherry, fig, and some spices. Great silky feeling on the palate. The fruits, such as raspberry and cherry, are crunchy and fresh. Some spiciness dominates in the finish, which is long and pure. An intense and fresh wine.
Aligoté "Sur le Bois" 2019, Domaine Bonnardot
Region: Bourgogne, France
Style: Light and crisp white
On the nose, warm ripe aromatic yellow fruit, such as peach and quince with scents of camomile and cookie dough. But the taste is fresh and green, with hints of granny smith and citrus. The acids are piercing and pointy, but the full malolactic fermentation and the use of barrel ripening provide fullness and roundness.
This Aligoté comes from two plots, which have a total of 0.17 hectares. The first plot comes from the Santenay hills. The second part lies on a clay-lime underlay the appellation “Sur le Bois” Maranges.
Au Capcèu 2017, Camin Larredya
Region: Jurançon, France
Grapes: Petit Manseng
Style: Sweet, Aromatic and fragrant white
An aromatic expression of ripe and exotic fruits (mandarin, pineapple, mango) as well as ripe apricots and citrus, with honey, caramel and spice in the background. Perfectly balanced between the sensation of alcohol, sweetness and freshness with intense fruit and spice flavours.
Beautiful dessert wine, that can be enjoyed with most desserts especially hot ones.
