Piacere Tuscia 2019 – Rome Sheraton Hotel


Great wines from Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany.


Organized by Carlo Zucchetti – Il Giornale Enogastronomico con il Cappello, an interesting event dedicated to the production of wine (and olive oil) in a very specific area – the Tuscia – located between the northern Lazio, the Umbria and Tuscany, was held on May 5th in Rome.

A territory that more or less corresponds to ancient Etruria and which has among its main characteristics soils – or terroirs – the tufaceous or alluvial, given that it includes both volcanic areas and the plain of rivers such as Tiber and Paglia.

About seventy producers have responded to the organizers’ appeal, with a wide selection of wines ranging from the well-known “classics” of the area, such as the Orvieto or Est Est Est, to some with unusual vines, such as  Alicante or  Malbec … definitely not exactly “typical” of these lands.

In evidence


It is difficult, as always in these cases, to provide our readers with a systematic and complete picture of the present offer – not to mention the oil, deliberately neglected since we do not like to taste many wines and oils simultaneously in the same session – for which we concentrated on sampling some classics but, above all, less typical grape varieties and on some “goodies” given by rare native vines or particular interpretations of the more usual ones.

So, let’s start by pointing out the Est Est Est Montefiascone DOC “Terre de ‘Puri” of Villa Puri and the Orvieto Classico Superiore DOC “Lunato” by Tenuta Le Velette. Or the different interpretations of Chardonnay provided by Paolo and Noemia D’Amico with the “Falesia” and the “Calanchi di Vaiano“.

Also noteworthy was the Sauvignon “Enos I” from Tenuta Montauto.

Among the classic reds, definitely worth mentioning is the Morellino di Scansano “Ciabatta” DOCG by Erik Banti. But it is precisely among the red wines that we find appreciable experiments like the Malbec and the Alicante, in the different interpretations provided by Santoiolo, or the rare Cannaiola, which grows in the area of ​​Bolsena, in the two interpretations of San Lazzaro with the “Vignola“, and “Martino IV” by Castelli. The first one is slightly sweeter, while the second is drier.

Last, but not least, we cannot fail to mention the spectacular “Muffa Nobile” (opening image) Orvieto Classico Superiore, produced by Tenuta di Salviano, already well known by our readers as it is present in our Italian Rosé Special. The botrytized grapes, harvested in late harvest in the area of ​​Lake Corbara are included as a type in the disciplinary of the Orvieto DOC and provide a unique “nectar”, for meditation or to combine with particular cheeses.

Go Wine the Nebbiolo in Rome

Sun Jun 2 , 2019
An evening at Savoy Hotel, dedicated to the king of Piedmontese vines, in its various forms: Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero.   Also in 2019, last May 21th, in Rome, Go Wine offered us the opportunity to taste the products of numerous – about 30 – Nebbiolo based wine cellars. An opportunity particularly appreciated by those who, like us, love this type of wines. It’s, of course, just a “cross-section” of the immense and variegated Piedmontese production, which counts hundreds and hundreds of companies devoted to the cultivation and preservation of these grapes which, luckily for us, give such extraordinary results.
