🎶There’s A Firefly Loose Tonight🎶

Andrea Marchetti
Lucciola Bianco 2021
La Corte dei Miracoli
Trebbiano Romagnolo 70%,  Albana 30%
Organic (practicing), indigenous yeasts, unfiltered & unfined
Emilia-Romagna, Italy

Orange amber with a few pops of rose. Sniffing and there’s scents of a citrus blend of orange, tangerine, mild grapefruit & more, as time goes a good funk grows that will surely pass on by, and flowers bloom like wisteria, butterfly lilacs, hyacinth, irises, and magnolia thrown in. Sipping and there’s the citrus blend along with zest, a good splash of lemon, green bell pepper, crabapples, the green of a whittled apple tree branch, small ember of smoke, and shake of white pepper. It’s crisp, fun, and has a depth but not brooding.

Pairs with Cheez-Its: brings out a little heat sizzle

Each Marchetti wine never fails to grab my attention and fill me with delight. He’s one creative busy bee as you can see in my previous posts. This man has boundless energy with his collaborations with other natural winemakers, his own wine, launching wine fairs, and more. Take Andrea’s “La Corte dei Miracoli” line is another such project where he farms 2.5 ha near Brisighella. The wines are created and bottled in Filippo Manetti’s (Vigne San Lorenzo) cellar, and I love his viticulture guidelines which align very much with Marchetti, “the first rule is to use LITTLE TECHNOLOGY, the second rule is to DO NOT DO, that is, not to do anything that is really necessary, both in the vineyard and in the cellar”. Back to Lucciola, take note, there are only so many bottles (2,500) so feel yourself gifted to catch one of these fireflies. It brought a smile to my face and that old childhood joy like when I was set free on summer evenings in a simpler, slower time watching the sun go down and running through the orchard following the tiny flashing flying lamps. Treat yourself to a glass and maybe you too will get a chance to see “a firefly loose tonight”.

G-Ray 2021
Pinot Grigio 85%, Durella 12%, Moscato 3%
Ramato style, organic, indigenous yeasts, unfined, & unfiltered
Vicenza, Veneto, Italy
Vineyards: Mantova (Lombardia) Pinot Grigio & Moscato from a single vineyard; Brenton (Verona) Durella
Vinified & bottled at Vigne del Pellagroso

Coppery smoked salmon that’s a bit electric and over time deepens. Breathing in orange blossoms and other tiny flowers, orange/citrus cocktail, gooseberries & tiny wild strawberries, orange circus peanuts & a fluff of cotton candy, all flying in on a spring breeze with a whiff of salt that has a cel-ray moment at the end. Wow this is delicious and I’m so happy to experience the 2021! Tasting oranges all around with tangerines, lemon/lime, citrus zest-zip-zing-tang, gooseberries, rhubarb,  crab & Lady apple crunch, and blossoms on the exhale that gets salty, herbs on the back like parsley/oregano/cilantro, a granite lick, and white pepper. Ready for the summer party!

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: smooth sailing

Also don’t over think and dissect this wine like I just did (albeit I love discovering each little bit). Just pour, close your eyes, relax, and let your whole body enjoy it!
