Roero, the white wines’ core in Piedmont

People living in this small piece of Piedmont are proud and stubborn. This area is squeezed between Cuneo, North of Alba, on the left bank of Tanaro river, between the plain of Carmagnola and the low hills of Asti.

This is Roero, probably a less known area than Langhe, but made up of those people that are committed in promoting at their best wineries, vineyards, local food and wines, in an admirable team work. The so-called Associazione Enoteca Regionale del Roero 2.0, based in Canale (CN), definitely the “main city of Roero”, includes 66 wine producers (all the wineries of this area).

Tommasi De Buris, the “Super Amarone”, luxury icon of Made in Italy

There is a wine area in Italy, whose character is more distinguished than others: this is Valpolicella, in Veneto, North East of Italy, by Verona, the world famed city of Romeo and Juliet, the tragedy written by Shakespeare. From such a romantic and fascinating land, it comes a deep, noble and passionate red wine: Amarone della Valpolicella. This is a wine that has deeply changed in the latest decade, from a muscular, alcoholic, almost sweet chewy red, it turned into an elegant, austere, less alcoholic and elegant wine.

Pietradolce and Vigna Barbagalli: Etna’s sustainable extreme flavour

Pietradolce is a new estate among Etna producers, founded in 2005 by the Faro’s, a pioneer family in the green business development. The Faro’s is a leader in Europe and Middle East for growing flowers and plants, thanks to Venerando Faro, aged 72, from Aci Sant’Antonio (in Catania province) who invented and crated a Nature’s jewel, Radicepura, a natural park, water and energetic self-sufficient, in Acireale and a must-stop place for thousands of visitors every year.
