|Monday January 5th||The Wines of Ronc di Vico With Phil Laramore|
Our old friend, Phil Laramore, started importing wine recently, and we were delighted to discover that one of the small, family run wineries he was bringing into Colorado was Ronc di Vico. This has long been a producer we have wanted to have on the list at Frasca, and we can't wait to turn you onto them. Matthew, Bobby and Grant Reynolds visited there back in 2010 and were all struck by the quality of the wines; they are rich but very detailed. The whites in particular showing great liveliness and zip. Located north of Udine and directly east of San Daniele, this is really the northern extent of the Colli Orientali. Emerging from their tiny cellar after a dramatic rainstorm, one couldn't help but be struck by how close the alps seemed to be.
|Monday January 12th||The Wines of Cantina Terlano With Klaus Gasser And Dieter Kamm|
10 years ago it was hard to get people to understand the co-op culture of Alto-Adige. Co-ops don't sound particularly romantic, nor do they often have a maverick winemaker breaking all the rules. In the case of Terlano, they simply make the best wine in the region. That's it, and that's enough for us at least. Year in and year out, the best wines of Cantina Terlano are extraordinary. And they age. Located north of Bolzano in some of the most breathtaking vineyards you will ever see or set foot in they are, simply put, not to be missed.
|Monday January 19th||The Wines of Poggerino With Piero Lanza|
Piero Lanza returns to Frasca for a Monday Night Wine Dinner. Piero and his sister Benedetta own a historic property in Radda in Chianti, just across the road from Montevertine. The vines are farmed biodynamically, and it's frankly hard to think of a more flat out delicious and drinkable Chianti than Poggerino. Welcome back, Piero!
|Monday January 26th||Le Ragnaie With Riccardo Campinoti|
Ronnie Sanders, of east coast based Vine Street Imports, is bringing out the owner and winemaker of our favorite Brunello discovery of 2014: Le Ragnaie. The winery owns 42 acres in 3 distinct zones including, importantly, the highest altitude vineyard in Montalcino allowed to call their wine Brunello at just under 2000 feet above sea level (Le Ragnaie). Lower lying parcels in Castelnuovo dell'Abate flesh out the frame just enough. 25 hl Slavonian oak are used with the Brunello, spending 36 months minimum in wood. The resulting wines are bright and nuanced with focused and high toned aromatics.
