Maternigo and La Fabriseria surpise the 2017 “Bibenda” guide
The 2017 “BIBENDA” guide, which represents its 19th edition, has recently been released. More than ever this guide presents itself as a long voyage across all of Italy’s regions in search of innovations in food and wine and the men and women that make them possible.
We invite you to have a look at the wine scores and reviews and note two special comments: the surprising clean note and expression of the Valpolicella Superiore Maternigo 2013, and the serene grace, perfect balance, lightness yet concentrated extracts of the multi-award winning Amarone della Valpolicella La Fabriseria 2011.
Very pigmented ruby red. On a thick layer of spice and rust there are hints of cherry under syrup, infused forest flowers, juniper berries, leather, toasted oak and an oriental aura of Lebanese cedar and patchouli incense. There is great concentration, balance, harmony and persistence.
A perfect symphony of aromatic elements.
A long and fulfilling elegance.
A calibrated sweetness and biting acid work in unison, suffused with alcoholic warmth and a hint of savory.
Fresh, flavorful and exhuberant.
Rich yet soft structure with well-defined tannins.
The lingering acid marks and refreshes the palate.
Fresh and audacious.
Streamlined overture and immediately enjoyable.
