Mixed Case: Spanish, French and Italian Wines
Domaine Rolet Pere et Fils was started in 1942 by Désiré Rolet in the Jura region of France. This winery prides itself on quality organic farming methods that let the unique terroir shine through in their wines. The Arbois Vin Jaune is made of 100% Savagnin – an ancient native grape from the Jura region. The wine is matured in barrels for several years, creating a rich, nutty, oxidized flavor.
This dazzling sparkler from Spain is made from one of the oldest family run wineries in the world. Raventos I Blanc has been in the Raventos family since 1497 and is now run by the 21st generation of the family. Located in Catalonia, this wine is made from all local varieties, allowing the terroir to shine through. Made with biodynamic winegrowing methods and traditional champenoise method this will surely shine. The Blanc de Blancs bursts with bright white fruit and is beautifully balanced on the palate.
Established in the early 1950s Luigi Pira estate consists of nearly 30 acres of Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera in the Serralunga d’Alba commune. For many years, the family sold their grapes to other local negociants – just recently have they started making their own wine. The Barolo Marenca is made of 100% Nebbiolo from the Marenca cru and bursts with flavors of ripe cherry and savory herbs. The great structure and depth combined with complex notes make this an exciting sipper.
In 1850, viticulture in the Alto Piemonte region of Italy was extremely common – nearly everyone had a vineyard and produced homemade wine. It wasn’t until 1937 did Antonio Vallana e Figlio come to be, when a father son duo turned their small family business into a formal company. Now run by the fifth and sixth generations, this winery looks to keep the legacy of their ancestors alive with delicious wines. The Spanna Colline Novaresi is a traditional Nebbiolo from Northern Piedmont. Notes of black and red fruit lead to a gentile spice and structured finish.
