Interesting fact

Situated in what they describe as "a place of extraordinary beauty," the Contrada Sulleria vineyard in Rodi Milici overlooks a picture-perfect view of the Mediterranean Sea. Once occupied by Julius Caesar, because he was a fan of the wines made by the Mamertime people, the area is truly breathtaking.

Region

Coteaux de Peyriac, France

Grapes

Grenache, Merlot, Carignan

Tasting notes

A handful of red and black fruits from currant to blackberry to muddled fresh cherries. Fruity and well balanced with a little grip and hints of vineyard herbs - a bistro wine of excellence!

Pairs with

Filet mignon with butter sauce, spinach dip, fresh salads with fruit

Interesting fact

Located between the sea and the Thau Lagoon, Château du Donjon is located about 10 kilometres northeast of Carcassonne in the heart of Bagnoles. It was once the property of the monks of the abbey of Caunes-Minervois and was used as an outpost. It takes its name from the ancient castle at Bagnoles. The estate has been in the PANIS-MIALHE family since the 15th century, and still has its picturesque 13th century donjon.

Vintage

2021

Region

Puglia, Italy

Grapes

Sangiovese, Aglianico

Tasting notes

Notes of wild strawberry and freshly smashed mulberry with little hints of almond tart and blood orange. Fresh yet structured on the palate, like biting into a juicy handful of berries. A slight saline finish keeps the wine light on it's feet and super easy to drink. I don't want to say "like Gatorade" but...like Gatorade.

Pairs with

Spaghetti and vegan meatballs, pizza, roast chicken and vegetables

Interesting fact

Placido Volpone is one of the first wineries to certify the supply chain of it's wine via Blockchain technology.
