Emanuele is a genius, period. On the first touch of his Super Roman wines to your lips, you're hooked. We could leave his wines alone and in a way, there would be nothing lost.
It so happens one of our Collectors Club members, of Italian descent, French speaking, now a surgeon in Texas (one could say culturally well-rounded and fitting for the setting) is visiting us for his winery tour available to members, at San Giovenale. In front of us stand nearly 100 noble French oak barriques - the giddiness rushes in, like that first time you got the box of 500 Crayola crayons as a child - this time our colors to paint with were Grenache, Syrah, Malvasia Nera, Carignano, and others, all from various vintages. The permutations were incalculable.
We tasted, sipped, shared, swirled, pondered, blended, re-blended, until we finally tagged 5 barrels that stood above the rest. Adding the mathematical brushstroke of genius with various percentages of each barrel, Emanuele came to Rimessa with 4 non-labeled bottles numbered 1 to 4. The winner - a unanimous number 4 - is heading to Wine Club Tier 2 members this Spring. Thank you to Mark Chalaby, Britta and the renowned Dario Cappelloni who contributed to this masterpiece.
Will you be the next one we thank??
Some additional notes:
Our Private Label is a powerful and very rich wine, with a velvety and caressing taste, where we hoped to lighten ever so lightly the power and concentration of Emanuele's wines.
The hand of Marco Casolanetti, for what concerns the production of wine, is one of the most recognizable as the result of a clear idea that embraces the work in the vineyard and in the cellar. Marco, former owner of Oasi degli Angeli, opts for very low yields on the plant in order to concentrate aromas and extracts in a few fruits, harvested when fully ripe.
In the case of Habemus, the vines are able to provide a generous and well-defined aromatic contribution. Concentrated, deep, impactful wine, fascinating for its persuasiveness and pleasantness to drink.
