Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Organic

Extra Vergine di Oliva The Extra Virgin Oil is a fresh olive juice that has several virtues. As a precious elixir, it is preserved with extreme consideration and a particular care is given in each phase of production
  • Olive Varieties: Frantoio 60%, Moraiolo 30%, Leccino 5% e Pendolino 5%.
  • Area of production: The olive groves are situated at 400 mt. above sea level on a mixed soil that extends for 44 hectars and holds 8,000 plants.
  • Age of olive trees: Recent trees were planted in the 1980s while the older trees were planted in the 1950s.
  • Plantation density: Around 300 plants per hectar.
  • Training system: polyconic vase.
  • Time of harvest: From late October to late November.
  • Method of harvest: Olives are harvested by hand to ensure that only perfectly healthy olives, of optimal ripeness are selected.
  • Processing: The olives are first washed in order to remove leaves and impurities, then they are cold-pressed at a controlled temperature of 22 ° for approx 30 minutes. The separation of the oil and the vegetation water is realized through centrifugal.
  • Percentage of oil produced from the olives: It varies widely every year, but usually under 15%.
  • Sensory Characteristics: It is a brilliant green color with golden undertones. Its perfume is an intense and persistent wet grass with hints of artichoke and eggplant. It is full bodied with slight tastes of fruit, spice and herbs.
  • Serving suggestions: The ideal use of this particular oil is with authentic cold dishes of raw vegetables soups, salads and dips. However, it is also perfect in cooked sauces and roasts.

The company covers more than 110 hectares of which 44 hectares are cultivated with olive groves. It is fertilized exclusively with organic products or legume green manure, taking full account of nature.The limited production of biological cultures also ensures a better quality, year after year. The olive harvest, like the one of the grapes, is traditionally done by hand for an exclusive selection of raw materials. The extra virgin olive oil derives exclusively from organic olives of the farm, which are still "hand-picked" and then cold-pressed in their own mill.

Riesling Hochheimer Hölle | Rheingau Germany

bouchon-vis
Name of the wine Riesling Hochheimer Hölle
Vintage 2014
Producer  Weingut Domdechant Werner
Wine Region  Rheingau Germany
Wine classification Kabinett | White Wine
Grape varieties 100% Riesling
Alcohol content 11,5% Vol
Serving temperature 8- 10 Grades
Description After a hectic year with turbulent weather conditions, finally I am delighted to report from Hochheim again about a "happy end” of the 2014 Riesling vintage: Good quality, but smaller quantity. The result is much better than expected: The fresh pressed juice from Riesling tasted and smelled clean with typical fruity aromas, the sugar degree reached over 80° up to 100° Öchsle, mostly suitable for Spätlese and even Auslese. The acidity appears crisp and round, well balanced against the typical Riesling fruits and minerals.

»Riesling pure« is the philosophy of the estate, particularly since Hochheim is credited for the worldwide first documentation of Riesling in history some 550 years ago. The Riesling wines are made rich in extract and due to the high mineral content of the soil both styles are successfully produced: classic-fruity style with overwhelming richness of elegant fruit and spicyness dry style with good substance and a moderate, harmonious acidity. The Pinot Noir is all made in a dry style.

All wines are aged individually in traditional wooden casks. Among the specialties of the estate are full Riesling Spätlese, rich Auslese as well asworld-class BA, TBA and Eiswein with excellent aging potential.

Serving temperature 16-18 grades
 Quantity of bottles  1

The Poggio Rubino estate is located in the area above the hills of Montalcino at an altitude of 470m above sea level, about three kilometres from the town centre and here produces its rare wines. The estate extends over 15ha and the vineyards cover a surface area of 7ha, entirely cultivated with select Sangiovese while the remaining 0.3ha will be planted in Spring 2010.  On average, the vines are ten years old with the exception of the most recent ones planted in 2006 at San Prospero.  The vineyards are positioned in different areas within the territory of Montalcino.  Each individual location and the characteristics of its terrain allow for the attainment of wines with evident personalities accentuating the uniqueness of each individual vineyard.

The most suitable care in cultivation is carried out strictly by hand including the careful selection of canes during pruning and at the moment of the shoot selection along with the thinning of the clusters when the veraison starts.  This enables each single vine to maintain a vegetative balance and an excellent distribution of production, thus ensuring the complete maturation of the bunch. The goal is to produce from 1 to 1.5kg per plant in order to force each individual vine into channelling all its energy into those few clusters and, likewise, imparting to each of them the highest possible sugar and polyphenol concentration.  In turn, this permits the grapes to reach their full potential from an oenological point of view (polyphenols, tannins and anthocyans) even in most difficult growing years.  This type of management allows for both a great limitation in the use and the type of pesticides (in fact, only copper and sulphur are used) and a refusal to use chemical weed control in favour of working the land.  The maximum yield per hectare is 50 to 60 quintals. Directly in farm is possible to taste and buy ours wines Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino and visit all the winery.
