Event: Merano Wine Festival 2015

The international wine&food excellence

Helmuth Köcher has been defining the boundaries ad contents of the adventure of making wine in Italy and abroad since 1992. An event that goes beyond the spectacle and cannot be considered a trade fair, but one of the most exclusive places and occasions for all industry operators.

For 24 years, information, culture and high society meet in Merano to take part in a multifaceted event, filled with opportunities for making acquaintances and meeting and comparing notes, where the recurring keyword is always “excellence”.


The Official Merano Wine & Culinaria Selection

The Official Merano Wine Festival Selection represents the very best of Italian and international food and wine production. The expression of a territory and its excellences.

The Official Merano Wine Festival Selection is not just the result of the careful selection by 10 tasting commissions, but above all it is the expression of high quality food and wine production.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 p. Alta Mora Etna Rosso 2013

*

The 2013 Etna Rosso is 100% Nerello Mascalese that sees six months in botte grande. In fact the wood element is absolutely neutral and the fruit has plenty of room to express itself. Dark berry fruit, dried cherry, spice and balsam herb are presented with sheer volume and brawn. The wine opens to a dark ruby color and imparts luscious dark fruit to the senses. It shows no sign of premature oxidation. It offers medium build with firm tannins and a streamlined finish. This is an impressive showing from young vines and a challenging vintage. I look forward to tasting more wines from Alta Mora.

Alta Mora is a newly founded estate owned by the Cusumano brothers, Diego and Alberto. In 2013, they purchased 15 hectares from the Benanti family on the north side of the volcano consisting of six hectares in Verzella (Contrada Pietramarina) planted to Nerello Mascalese and Chardonnay and nine hectares in Guardiola at 880 meters above sea level. The Cusumano brothers planted this vineyard with new vines, mostly Nerello Mascalese. This is my first official tasting of Alta Mora and dare I say: These are among the best wines I have ever tasted from Cusumano. Congratulations. (Monica Larner).

Moscato dello Zucco 2009, 90 punti Wine Spectator

Tasting Note

A rich dessert wine, with a mouthcoating palate of salted caramel, apricot preserves, ground ginger and candied orange peel. Well-balanced by lively acidity, with a lasting, fruit-filled finish.

90 points: Sàgana and Noà 2012 by Wine Spectator, aug. 2015 issue

Sàgana Tenuta San Giacomo 2012


Score: 90

Sleek and well-knit, with a mouthwatering mix of crushed blackberry, plum sauce, chalky mineral and espresso crème, layered with supple tannins and an aromatic thread of ground spice. This should open up nicely with short-term cellaring. Nero d'Avola. Drink now through 2022. 
**

Noà Tenuta Presti e Pegni 2012


Score: 90

Tasting Note

Dusty tannins impart light grip to this medium- to full-bodied red, supporting the layered palate of juicy sun-dried black cherry and wild strawberry fruit, with mocha, tarry smoke and grilled herb accents. Offers a chewy, spiced finish. Nero d'Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022.

Alma Mater by Yuval Avital in dialogue with Il Terzo Paradiso by Michelangelo Pistoletto exhibition.

Cattedrale della Fabbrica del Vapore July 8 – August 29

Inaugurating July 2015 in Milan’s prestigious La Fabbrica del Vapore, under the patronage of EXPO MILANO, Alma Mater is an artwork, a forest made up of 140 loudspeakers, from which emerge hundreds of voices, chants and whispers of grandmothers from all over the world, combined with sounds of the femminine archetype in nature – seismic vibrations, volcanos, sounds of oceans and waters, all produced in collaboration with international research and musicological centers.

Alma Mater is a journey to our origins, ideally represented by the presence of an original version of the foremost artwork “Il Terzo Paradiso” by Michelangelo Pistoletto, created solely for this occasion. The poetic and meaningful light design of the installation has been projected by Enzo Catellani (Catellani&Smith).

Completing the multi-sensorial experience is the return onto the scene of the ballet, the legendary stars who shaped the history of Teatro alla Scala, Liliana Cosi and Carla Fracci, prance through video projections all in the live presence of local lacemakers whom weave thread through bobbins creating an unexpected lacework.

Alma Mater, a catalyst for numerous concerts, workshops, panels and other events which takes place during the entire duration of the installation, will also be furnished with a wine bar of Sicily’s utmost excellence – Cusumano.
