情迷 The Fascinating 120+1

 

情迷 120+1

看見這酒的標籤,覺得是字謎。意大利皮埃蒙特以香檳方法釀製的氣酒,沒有餵糖,法國橡木桶陳浸。百分百黑葡萄。

釀酒師路加小焦糖從沒讓我失望,他的新作我一定支持。這位仁兄儼如他的前輩賈科莫▪塔奇(創作很多意大利“哎呀”的功臣);不會死守一地,全國跑做顧問。為他的雇主釀製出獲獎無數的酒。三杯獎信手拈來。他釀酒的哲學是用心聆聽葡萄的心聲,按她們的秉性因材施製。

在酒莊還來不及更新網頁,我已經嘗了這120+1。用百花齊放、爭妍鬥艷來形容卻不誇張,果香也不弱,簡直是美猴王的花果山。結構嚴謹而輪廓分明,是一見傾心的大美人。廠方不願意解密是啥葡萄,也許是故作神秘;也可能要保存專有技術。那些槐花、紫羅蘭、玫瑰香,不難想像是皮埃蒙特的納比奧羅、淥淇、和核多多葡萄。

請教他為啥命名為120+1, 原來這就是同一勾兌的酒連酒渣一起陳化十年才除渣,也即是120個月同一勾兌。


要知道法國香檳宣告年份的話,法定必須陳三年。這酒陳十年,看看價錢,怎可能不解囊?

產量有限,快快抱得美人歸啦!

The Fascinating 120+1

Seeing the label of this wine, it seems more a riddle than fascination. The sparkling wine made by the champagne method in Piedmont, Italy, non-dosage and aged in French oak barrels. 100% black grapes.

Winemaker Luca Caramelino has never let me down, and I will definitely support his new work. This man is just like his predecessor Giacomo Tachis (the hero who created many Italian “AIAs); he won't stay on one spot, and run as a consultant all over the country, making numerous award-winning wines for his employer. The 3 glasses of Tre Bicchiari awards came at hand. His winemaking philosophy is to listen to the voice of the grapes attentively, and tailor them according to their characteristics.

Before Montalbera update their website, I have tasted 120+1. It is not an exaggeration to describe it with a hundred flowers blooming in a beauty pageant and the fruity fragrance is not weak. It is simply the “Flower and Fruit Mountain “of the Monkey King. The structure is rigorous and well-defined, it is a beautiful creature whom you shall love it at first sight. The producer is unwilling to decipher what grapes it is, perhaps pretending to be a mystery; or they may want to save the know how. Those fragrance of acacias, violets, and roses are not hard to imagine Piedmont's Nebiolo, Ruche, and Grignolino grapes.

When I asked why it is named 120+1. It turns out that this is the same cuvee and is aged on lees for ten years before disgorging. Which means 1 same cuvee aged for 120 months.

For French Champagne that declares vintage, it must be aged for three years by law. This wine has been aged for ten years. How can it be possible to look at the price?

The production is limited, so let's hug the beauty home soon!
