This Week's Featured Wines
Furlani Mino Carbo Rosso 2020
Featured in our May wine club, this is a great everyday bottle to have on tap for the summer. File under 'supremely delicious chillable reds.'
The ‘Mino Carbo’ is one of the newer additions to Matteo Furlani's ever-evolving lineup of still wines, this being just the second vintage of the bottling to hit US shores, and as always it leans heavily into its alpine heritage. Super fresh and super juicy, the Mino sees the notoriously tangy Marzemino (plus a small percentage of white grapes) subjected to whole-cluster, carbonic maceration, an approach to fermentation often used to soften ‘sharp edges’ and nudge up the fruit elements of the given variety. While this wine may be light in body and color, it packs a wicked punch of lip-smacking red fruit; cranberry, just-barely-ripe red cherry, prickly pear and red currant, countered by an intensely ferrous and dusty character, all of which is wrapped neatly wrapped in a crunchy and angular mouthful that screams undeniably of the mountains. This is a wine that is best served cool but not too cold, so a quick 15-minute stint in the cooler should do the trick!
Pairing idea: honeydew melon wrapped in thin-sliced bresaola; panzanella with basil and nectarines; grilled Thai chicken skewers with cucumber salad; a day at the beach!
As always, what we have available to you today is the entirety of our allocation for this and, given the struggles of both the 2013 and 2014 vintages, all wines are in especially limited supply... there will be no more to be found on our shelves – get em’ while they’re hot!
