The True Adventurer
The True Adventurer is a delightful case to confuse and amuse, the unifying strands are quality and individualism.
Perhaps a step too far for Malbec-Man, this selection is a reminder that the world of wine is an impossibly expanding universe.
Ferrante’s Anni Venti celebrates a time when the Champenoise once bottled Neapolitan Greco as their own; the Mascot is Matt’s (also of Bat and Bottle and Abigail’s Vintage Bridal, a proper Renaissance man) triumph: a very natty, dry Muscat with a lovely texture, on its way to insider-legend status. Rossella’s Sassocarlo is the full biodynamic, skin-contact, late-harvest old-vine genius Trebbiano – extreme and magnificent. Camillo has taken Freisa and put his own twist on it, F2 is part macération carbonique and part conventional winemaking, totally brilliant. The Forzatè has its own page devoted to it’s wayward character and Camerlengo’s Antelio is an Aglianico made from biodynamically farmed grapes, crafted into wine in a cave. Tiny production, only 12.5% and it is packed with flavour. A miraculous wine.
