Northern Italians with Matchvino

Matchvino and our friend Stacey is back to show five Northern Italian gems including one of our favorite whites of the summer: 2014 Molinetto "Gavi", 100% Cortese from Piedmont. From the 6 hectare organic farm of this DOCG property, strong calcareous clay and stainless fermentation create a superb white for these warm summer evenings. Stacey will open two other whites: a 2014 Vitovska from Nicolini Giorgio in Friuli (a literal stone's throw from Slovenia) and a Lombardian staff favorite, the 2014 Marangona Trebbiano di Lugana. The featured rosé and red are both from Cantina Bolzano, one of South Tyrol's top-quality wineries with vineyards planted between 240 and 800 meters above sea level. The finishes in both the rosé Lagrein and the red St. Magdalener are bright and quenching, inviting you to that second sip...subito! Cin cin!
