After many impressive consulting gigs (Benanti, Gulfi among others) Salvo Foti, a pioneer in natural viticulture, decided to venture on his own "I Vigneri" project. His wines are grown on volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna - a wonderful mix of cool elegance of the high altitude vineyards, wind and heat of the south, brine and freshness of the sea.. (previously posted his white and rosé). "Vinupetra" is a blend of 80+yr old Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio densely planted on ungrafted roots. '14 is complex and smokey but fresh with ripe plum, cherry and exotic spice; a wine that evolves beautifully over the course of dinner🍷🍷🍷👌🙏Bravo!!#winestagram#winelover#winegeek#winetasting#sommelier#foodandwine#etnarosso#winepairing#salvofoti#giroditalia
My first time ever in Napa today with some of the fellow #DMP Executive Team & we’re visiting Nicholson Ranch, our client’s winery.. We’re doing a little filming for #NSRNSF, too. Absolutely beautiful. Cheers. 🎥🔥
Poolside and chill. 🥂💦☀️ 📝 Lively citrus nose, coated with sweet aromas of acacia and lime. Rich pulpy flesh of ripe Semillon. Delicious mineral complexity. The acidity of Sauvignon provides a good tension. Balanced and fruity long finish.
