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.
The brothers Tamellini grow these 50 year old Garganega grapes sustainably on southern facing slopes in Veneto. Its fresh, vibrant qualities are a great match for light pasta dishes or as an apertif.
The Tamellini estate has an old family tradition that's now overseen by brothers--Gaetano and Pio. Sustainability is a main focus for the vineyard. They never use insecticides or fertilizers and employ integrated cover crops which compell the roots of the vines to go deeper
in order to find water. In effect, the production of the vines is lower with a more concentrated flavor.
Veneto is one of the most prolific wine regions in Italy. Verona, its capital, has been an important wine center since Roman times. Commercial success hasn't always had beneficial effects on the wines. Since the 1970s perceptions of Veneto's most venerable wines - notably Valpolicella and Soave - have suffered thanks to overproduction and the inferior quality of big producers. Thanks to a new generation of small producers who tend their own vines and make their own juice, Veneto's comeback is picking up momentum. The new wines are refreshing and nuanced, whether red or white. Tastes are changing again and these wines are right for the times - all the more so because they offer unbeatable price/quality.
