GEA FROM FILIPPO MANETTI VIGNE DI SAN LORENZA

GEA FROM FILIPPO MANETTI VIGNE DI SAN LORENZA – CHRISTOPHE’S WINE OF THE WEEK

GEA FROM FILIPPO MANETTI VIGNE DI SAN LORENZA – CHRISTOPHE’S WINE OF THE WEEK…

“When I moved to Emilie-Romagne, I knew very little about the local wines.

This region falls under domination of large cooperatives that often results in wines lacking a true identity.  Unfortunately, this is often the case with Albana, the local varietal which was used in the first Italian wines to receive the DOCG (Denominazione di origine Controllata), the highest mark of recognition for an Italian appellation.

And then one beautiful day, I met Filippo Manetti, who manages around 3 hectares of vines on the hills of the medieval village of Brisighella. Filippo built his home and farmhouse in a renovated old church – it is a true haven of peace!

Now let’s talk about the wines.

The cuvée Gea is a wine made with 100% Albana, where you can find the entire soul of the varietal! With a few days of maceration, the golden color is constantly evolving in the glass, and has an enchanting nose of jammy fruits, wisteria, chamomile, and herbs. This wine has a nice acidic structure, and a touch of tannins – evoking a beautiful emotion!

Come visit this region and its winemakers who make little gems like this!”

Natural wine and food lovers – we are raising a glass to BREWSTERS BEER GARDEN, just registered on Raisin! Check out this natural wine restaurant and bar in Petaluma, we highly recommend it!

Local southern California cuisine goes great with Brewsters’ growing natural wine list, along with craft beer, cocktails, live music, and a lively outdoor environment to enjoy good eats and drinks. Brewsters is located in the charming, historic neighborhood of downtown Petaluma – an area without many natural wine options nearby, so we are lucky to have them!

We also would like to thank Brewsters for their financial support using the fast registration⚡ process, which promises a 48 HOURS GUARANTEED REGISTRATION to appear quickly on our map of recommended establishments around the world with 30% minimum natural wine.
