L'Armangia: the elegance of Nizza, the character of Albarossa and Piedmont, the aromas of Canelli
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, January 19th, 2017
2017 begins with an event dedicated to the wines of L'Armangia winery from Canelli (Piedmont) which poured in the glasses of participants the elegance of its wines. A truly welcome return after three years with the participation of Ignazio Giovine - owner and wine maker of L'Armangia - who unfolded the characteristics of the varieties used for making his wines, in particular Chardonnay, Barbera, Albarossa and Muscat Blanc. The evening started with the joyous bubbles of Metodo Classico Pas Dosť LorenzoMariaSole 2010, made with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, refermented in bottle for 60 months, a sparkling wines having a strong personality as well as remarkable crispness and complexity. The event continues with the elegance of Piemonte Chardonnay Robi & Robi 2013, made with Chardonnay and Chardonnay Musque grapes, with a perfect balance between the expression of varietal aromas and the meeting with wood, a wine of pleasing elegance and crispness. It is then the turn of the three wines of the evening, starting from Barbera and the expression of Nizza. The first of the three wines is in fact Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Titon 2013 confirming the elegance of L'Armangia's style in using wood while allowing the famous red from Piedmont to express its pleasing crispness and character. The fourth wine of the evening pours in the glasses the interesting Albarossa grape, a variety created in 1938 by the great Italian ampelographer Giovanni Dalmasso by crossing Barbera and Chatus, also known as "Nebbiolo di Dronero". Piemonte Albarossa Macchiaferro 2011 joins character and elegance, giving a wine with a good body in which crispness balances the roundness of time and giving remarkable agreeable wine. The fifth wine focuses again on Nizza and Barbera in the perfect interpretation of Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Vignali 2011, aged in cask and with an evidently stronger character than Titon, a beautiful example of the elegance the territory of Nizza Monferrato gives to Barbera. The evening ended with Moscato d'Asti Canelli 2016, exuberant interpretation of finesse and the perfect balance between sweetness and crispness. The tasting of wines has been conducted by Antonello Biancalana who also conceived - as usual - the dishes paired to the wines of L'Armangia.
