Wine Spectator : OperaWine “Finest Italian Wines, 100 Great Producers”

WINE SPECTATOR, the foremost authority in the wine industry has partnered with VINITALY for the first time. In this context, VeronaFiere has partnered with the American publication to bring together on March 24th, 2012 in Verona at the magnificent Palazzo della Ragione, 100 of Italy's great producers. "OperaWine" (http://www.operawine.it/) is an innovative project, designed to cultivate knowledge on the excellence and diversity of the finest Italian wines and simultaneously give wine lovers the chance to experience unique, historical and cultural sites within the Italian peninsula. Exclusive initiatives, such as this premiere Grand Tasting, related to Italian wine, food and culture aims to encourage international operators, journalists, sommeliers, wine educators, and high profile wine aficionados alike to explore the fascinating history and background of Italian wine production.The objective of the tasting is to showcase the quality and diversity of Italy's wine producers across the breadth of the country's wine regions. Of course, no group of only 100 producers can be comprehensive, or exhaust the bounty of Italian wines. But the aim is to offer a representative sampling that will accurately reflect the heritage and achievements of Italian vintners," said Bruce Sanderson, Senior Editor, Wine Spectator, at the press conference, speaking of the selection criteria for which the magazine was solely responsible.

CNN Eatocracy 2 Dicember 2011 The Best Wine for casserole

Ray Isle (@islewine on Twitter) is Food & Wine's executive wine editor. We trust his every cork pop and decant - and the man can sniff out a bargain to boot. Take it away, Ray.Lasagna
When it comes to cooking for a big group and making everyone really happy, the Italians nailed it when they came up with lasagna. That whole noodles-ragù-béchamel (or noodles-ricotta-tomato sauce-sausage, if you want to Americanize it) combo is hard to beat. The crispy edges at the sides of the dish are addictive, and the stuff is just dead-simple to make. And it goes great with red wine, ideally one with reasonable acidity and tannins to cut through all that richness.

Any substantial southern Italian red could do the trick, but a couple of good bargains are the plummy 2010 Cusumano Nero D'Avola ($11).

Cusumano 2009 Nero d'Avola


Sicily's most important red grape, Nero d'Avola, makes up the sole component of this wine - and it packs a punch. Impressive fruit, blackberries, black cherries and plums are woven with spiced chocolate and mocha notes. The palate is earthy and dark. It's smooth and medium to full-bodied with vibrant acidity and a spicy mocha finish. Pairs well with pasta in spicy tomato sauce or rich eggplant caponata.

Vins et Vignobles Canada


Histoire classique souvent relatée en Sicile où une famille de vignerons cultivait la vigne mais vendait son vin en vrac. Cusumano dont les assises se nichent à Partinico dans le nord-ouest de la Sicile n'en fait pas exception. Aujourd'hui, le père Francesco secondé par ses fils Alberto et Diego sont très fiers de cultiver leurs 400 hectares répartis entre les régions de Ficuzza à Palerme, Buttera à Caltanissetta et Presti e Pegni à Alcamo et ainsi de pouvoir élaborer leurs propres vins........
