Many Guests at Podere Conca for the celebration of the 25th year of DOC Bolgheri
There are two efficient methods to open a cellar: knowing who is the core and visiting it. These two methods linked to wine tasting, better if of different years, to understand and assess wine evolution, because resting in the bottle makes the wines more and more pleasurable and well-balanced (obviously, depending on the type of wine that we are tasting).
Therefore, taking advantage from the many good journalists come to celebrate the 25th year of DOC, we invited them to visit us and taste our wine production from 2015, the first year of our cellar work, up to today. A few years for a real vertical tasting, but enough to understand the work that we are carrying out and to ask them, who know all our colleagues and many wines from all over the world, an opinion on it. So, we presented 2015-2016-2017 of Bolgheri Rosso Agapanto and 2016-2017-2018 of IGT Elleboro.
After the meeting at the theatre in Bolgheri, where some of the historic producers of the Denomination told us from where they come and where they want to go with their work, we accompanied some journalists to Podere Conca, where tasting was ready.
After the technical tasting, the bottles were put on the table to accompany the delicious menu that our home chef Simonetta cooked with her usual mastery. Indeed, in addition to the cold-bloodedly tasting – even if perfect from a technical point of view – the wine must be tasted combined with food, because it is intended just for this!
