The Genoa event narrated and photographed by those who have lived it. Ligurian labels included.
I arrive late at the thirteenth edition of Critical Wine. The event, packed as usual, takes place at the “Laboratorio Sociale Occupato Autogestito Buridda” in Corso Montegrappa in Genoa. (Note: the event was held last 11 th and 12 th of November ).
Many are the food, wine and spirit producers , who are proud to show the results of their work to the participants, conducted in the respect of land and people.
My colleagues and I decide to sample a Rossese di Dolceacqua from the Rosmarinus Cantine: one 2014 bottle and one 2016 bottle.
I trust the experienced taste buds of Chiara Campora, an Ais sommelier: “I really liked the 2016 Posau II
vigne vecchie (old vines)for its olfactory complexity, the scent of Mediterranean scrub and red berries, well
balanced to the taste, with a nice flavor and pleasant persistence”.
Time flys. We remain in western Liguria and to avoid crowds, we visit the commercial farm of Luca Deperi who shows us a Pigato, unfiltered and made with no yeast, with grapes not contaminated by pesticides, in a mineral rich soil and intense red color.
We would love to continue tasting other products, but unfortunately time has run out. The sound of a horn gently warns that the 2017 edition has come to an end.
