NYE 2013

 

“All I wanna do in the middle of the evening is hold you tight.  Rosanna, Rosanna”

Champagne-style Nebbiolo.  Are you salivating yet?

I tasted Ettore Germano’s “Rosanna” Brut Rose for the first time this New Year’s Eve.  100% Nebbiolo, 100% delicious.  This bottle is everything you want in a sparkling wine- structure from the acidity and the tannic nature of the grape, alongside a layered density from the time spent fermenting in the bottle and then resting on the lees.  Fresh, cool, vertically mineral.  A real Tour de Force of bubbles.

On a Boat

Perfect boating wine… just make sure to bring a few bottles as one will never suffice!  Do you make this in Magnums, Sergio?!

Not surprising that a Piemontese man, famous for his elegant Barolo and also his highly prized white wines would craft such an explosive and delectable sparkler. The Piemontese are famous for their love of Champagne, and Sergio Germano is renowned for his loving embrace of acidity, as well his understanding of terroir.  This wine is one to cellar, one to open with friends, one to savor at midnight on the dawn of a new year.

 

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.
