2019 Lambrusco dell'Emilia 'Al Scur,' Ferretti Vini, Emilia-Romagna, Italy - Lambrusco is a brightly colored grape variety used to make sparkling red wines in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy.  it is actually a collective term for a group of varieties, with more than 60 being identified so far.  Lambrusco gained in global popularity in the 1980s, as a result of mass production, with most being made in bulk using the Charmat method, where secondary fermentation takes place in large steel tanks.  Thankfully, there has been a resurgence of artisan producers, making handcrafted wines through Methode Traditional (or Champagne method), where secondary fermentation takes in bottle after the addition of liqueur de tirage.  A few others are using the Methode Ancestrale (or Petillant Naturel), as we have here.  The Ferretti family has been farming Lambrusco and other Vinifera varieties in the heart of Emilia-Romagna for multiple generations, currently carried on by sisters, Elisa and Denise.  They have recently converted to biodynamic farming on their vines dating back to the 1940s.  Al Scur is a blend of 25% Lambrusco Salamino, 20% Maestri, 15% Grasparossa, 10% Marani, 8% Oliva, 5% Barghi, 2% Foglia Frastagliata, and 15% Ancellotta and is aged on lees for 6 months with no fining or filtration.  it displays an opaque purplish red color with generous foam with aromas of spice, cherries and brambly fruit followed by a lively mouthfeel with more notes of cherry framed by velvety tannins on the finish. A great wine with filled pastas such as cappellletti or tortellini, as well as pork sausages such as cotechino. 

2015 Greco di Tufo, Tenuta Russo Bruno, Campania, Italy - Greco di Tufo is a DOCG in Campania and arguably the region's most prestigious white wine, made predominantly from the grape varietal (Greco) that shares its name.  The vines from which Greco di Tufo are made are cultivated at an altitude of 450-500 meters where cooler temperatures allow the grapes to thrive in persistent sunshine without overheating.  Only 8 villages can legally claim to make Greco di Tufo.  Tenuta Russo Bruno farms organically in the highest altitude within the region, with about 3 hectares devoted to Greco.  The wine displays aromas of apricot and peach with hints of honeysuckle and grapefruit, followed by a crisp palate with luscious texture, clean acidity, finishing with waves of mineral and herbs and fall fruits.  It is a great pairing with grilled fish, turkey, and mushroom risotto.

2015 Crealto 'Alvesse', Piedmont, Italy - Grignolino is a black grape varietal from the Monferrato Hills of Piedmont that, until recent years, was not at all well known outside of the region.  It produces very little pigment, resulting in a very pale red wine, belying its high level of tannins and acidity.  Though as a winery barely than ten years old, Crealto is a farm with vineyards of up to 55 years of age, almost exclusively focused on Grignolino, in limestone and clay, mostly south facing.  Alvesse is sourced from their coveted 50 year old vines that scarcely make up three hectares, and made with at least three years to age in a combination of amphora, oak and bottle.  The result is a light-medium body wine with aromas of raspberry, red bramble fruit, and hints of pomegranate, followed by focused acidity and fine grainy tannins and waves of darker fruit coming through on the finish.  800 bottles produced annually.  Pairs well with truffle risotto, spaghetti carbonara, and other pasta dishes with a heavy cheese component.
