The Inside Story from Italian Wine Merchants

Inside IWM, October 13-15, 2015: Short, Sweet Week

IMG_2405It was a short week, but a sweet one here on Inside IWM. Stephane Menard kicked off the blog in some serious style, setting the bar high with his Go-To-Wine Tuesday post that highlighted Sartarelli 2013 Verdicchio Tralivio with a beautiful recipe for lobster pasta. On Wednesday, we got a history lesson on BBS11, the Sangiovese clone responsible for Brunello di Montalcino. And Thursday saw Emery Long urging you to embrace the world beyond beer as you ready for game day; whichever sport you watch, Emery wants you to pair your wings with wine.

Our experts were similarly powerful. Michael Adler sings the praises of Morey-St-Denis and picked a pair of beautiful Burgundies from this subregion to prove his point. Francesco Vigorito can’t get enough Miani, the cult Friuli estate owned by reclusive Enzo Pontoni, and after experiencing Francesco’s wines, neither will you. And Garrett celebrated the sweetness of this short week with two dessert wines–you’ll love them!

Cheers to you and yours!
