A Miscellany of Interesting Italian Wine...

Share

Including a rare group of old wine from Sella, a standard-bearer for quality wines from Alto Piemonte.

Sella is best know for Lessona, in part because they more-or-less sustained wine production there during the lean post-war years. The Bramaterra is also very good. I have never tasted Piccone, which is a blend of Nebbiolo, Freisa, Neretto di Bario (!), and Barbera.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are the oldest bottles I've seen from what's now labelled as Castello Conti (formerly imported by Jan d'Amore, currently by Rosenthal). The black-and-white label illustrates the 19th-20th century church at Boca, which is an important pilgramage site, and a kind of weird mash-up of architectural styles. The church has a terrific collection of ex-voto images.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another great rarity: the oldest vintage of Lino Maga's Barbacarlo that I've seen. Barbacarlo is half (or more) Croatina, with the balance Uva Rara and Uvetta. It is a wild and fantastic wine. I had to buy one for myself.

 

Nice old Valtellina...

 

Last but not least: a fine stash of some old favorites. Jamie Wolff

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PS: the Hofstatter 1966 Gewurztraminer looks beautiful - great fills, great color. Despite my mixed feeings about Gewurztraminer, I had to buy one of those too - it's just too rare to pass up.
