Winemaker Marco Bonfante was in town Tuesday to present his wines in our monthly tasting at the Classic Café. Marco is a tremendous winemaker. Every wine he poured showed a style of winemaking which is all about structure, finesse and very clean pure fruit. Definitely No Funk.
Marco loves making Barolo and Barbaresco, but he is also a bit of the mad horticulturist. He is into very non- traditional blends and cross pollination of vines in order to find new varietals. Today we are focusing on two of his wines, a sensational Rosso and his Barolo. You will notice that both wines focused on are of the 2012 vintage. That is the current release. They spend a long time in French Oak then at least a year resting in the cellar before release. Read more about wines
All of the very best for your weekend,
Rex and Michele
The proof is always in the glass!
