Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Casebianche's Cumale is fermented in stainless steel and allowed to remain on the lees (indigenous yeasts) for 5 months before bottling. This classic French winemaking technique creates a rich texture, as if the wine had been aged in barrels — without the wood flavoring.
The Casebianche winery was begun in 2000. Husband and wife team "Betty" and Pasquale determined that their 5.5 hectares of vineyard would be farmed organically and their wines would be made with as little human intervention as possible. Or as they view it, “The soil, as a living organism, represents the essential starting-point for the growth and quality of our vineyards. With our organic farming technique, the human presence in the fields is very limited, only simple and mechanic operations in order to revive the fields and promote deep root development. We only use natural fertilizers, green manure and compost in order to enrich our fields.”
Inland from Naples, the heartland of Campania, lies southern Italy's most important wine regions. The foothills of the Appno Napoletano range encompass the prime growing areas for the late-ripening Aglianico, the minerally Greco di tufo, and the elegant Fiano. Historically, Campania has witnessed millenia of conquering hordes crossing her soils, many leaving contributions on a grand scale. Certainly the Greek occupiers planted here, leaving a viticultural legacy that stretches to the present day.
Paestum is an ancient Greco-Roman city south of the Amalfi coast. Wines from this region are not eligible for higher-status appellations, and so generally are labeled I.G.T., for Indicazione Geografica Tipica, or typical of its place of origin.
