The consensus was that this was a great meeting with enjoyable wines, much comment on the Olive Oil and the Modena Balsamic, and an enjoyable presentation from Michele of Cangrande.
There were good orders of both the wine and the oil and balsamic. Also there was biscotti provided by Carmel. This went down a treat and was enjoyed by all, thanks Carmel.
To recap the wines they included a Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene Docg – Bortolomiol (Veneto) as a quaffer followed by; Pinot Grigio Doc – Masut da Rive (Friuli – Venezia Giulia); Soave Superiore Doc “Monte Sella” – Le Mandolare (Veneto); Negroamaro del Salento Igt – Cignomoro (Puglia); Nebbiolo Langhe Doc – San Biagio (Piemonte); Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Doc – Caterina Zardini (Veneto); Il Fortificato, Fortified red wine based on Recioto della Valpolicella – Giuseppe Campagnola (Veneto); Cangrande also provided a Falanghina Beneventano Igt – Donnachiara [Campania], as a raffle prize.
Great fun trying to keep up with the Italian names.
