Impressions from WINEStaly 2012
Impressions from WINEStaly 2012. Created on 04 April 2012 by WINES & terroir.
"Here are our impressions of the 2012 edition of the WINEStaly: I started seeing that for me it was a hit and run, I was at the fair only on Sunday.I can not express anything on the change of days since I could not touch it, however on Sundays I saw huge "herds of thirsty" push, take off etc etc.
Here in these cases I regret the various Vinexpo, WINESsud, London Wine Fair where only the insiders can enter; perhaps with a lower income from the fair organization but with a net gain in terms of professionalism in the field of insiders. Marina Betto instead remained much more than me and here are her important impressions.
VENI VIDI WINESTALY
I want to look for him, know him and then taste it, sip it, watch how it falls into the glass, feel what it smells, what sensations it evokes, what it provokes, if it can excite me or disappoint me; how a first date could be made, the first taste of a bottle is like meeting a stranger, but even revisiting an ancient passion can be just as interesting. These are the ideas that circulate in my mind, while I wander uncertainly among the stands of WINEStaly, wide, frenetic manifestation that of Verona. No scheme, guide, itinerary studied, as perhaps many do or impose themselves to do; never love the rules, I want to be guided by the senses, by the sensations, and so I did.
There is a third element between me and the wine: the producer, who is the alter ego of the wine itself, is often not the best promoter of himself, whether by character or way of doing, interposes between you and the wine. taste and it is not always love at first sight. Many producers are friendly and friendly, they invite you to enter their home, make you sit and honor you as a special guest dedicating time and attention, others know how to tell well and the fascination is intense, others select the clientele not to lose time not doing good service to their wine, which as far as I'm concerned immediately discarding them on the black list of tastings, because if inside the bottle there is the history of those who produce it, I see too much attention to the "business" in certain behaviors not the will to spread and share ancient knowledge and values, of which we often hear only talk in the world of wine, but that for many remain a thin patina that sounds as false as the chemicals they use to sophisticate the product.
The days in Verona were warm and sunny with an almost summery climate, which in some sheds was Amazonian; always very crowded, people of different nationalities: Germans, Russians, Japanese, and Chinese among foreigners and among Italian professionals and not, young (someone drunk), simple enthusiasts, faces archinotes in the world of food and wine journalism, some stars that produces (Albano); in short, not a full house, but interested people who went straight to the destination without delay.
So the tour starts from Lazio (...).
I climb the boot and go to Campania the COMPANY ROCCA DEI SANNITI in the province of Benevento is located on the slopes of Mount Taburno, a place for native wine production of particular value and its Sannio DOC Falanghina 2011 is straw yellow, with intense aromas of glycerine, white flowers of jasmine and laburnum, intact and perfect also in the mouth is a flower, I would say amazing almost aromatic.
