Posted by Giorgio, Jan 16, 2012.

This for all Snooth members.
I'm trying to introduce myself to the community, I'm an italian guy, wine lover.

Check out my profile and trophies.
I'm proud about the "region specialist" trophy 'cause I reviewed more than 50 wines from Italy.
I also got also "wine collector" trophy 'cause my cellar contains more than 10 wines, I aim to be "Cellar Master" reaching 100 different wines.

Send me your questions about Italian wines I'll be happy to help you through

Welcome Giorgio.  I'm excited to have you on the Forum.  There are some people here at the Snooth Forum who are very knowledgeable about Italian wines.  I am not one of them, and I look forward to learning from you as I have been doing from the others.  Please do wait for a question to jump in here.  If you try an nice wine, or if you learn some new interesting information, please jump in here with a new topic and tell us.

Welcome to you, too, Gabriela.  I looks like we might be getting some new expertise on Mexican wines.  Que bueno!

And from Julin22, looks like it's getting cold up in Edmonton and people are willing to pay for company up there...  Nasty spamming of more than a half dozen threads.... ;-(

Giorgio, good to see you here. What are your favorite daily drinkers, and your favorite special bottles these days? Italian and otherwise?

Any wines that are becoming fashionable in Italy?  For a while, I though Lagrein was going to take off on the red side, but now I'm not hearing as much about it.  Anything that we aren't hearing about here, where we all have our brunello/chianti/barolo/barbaresco/aglianico preferences, but haven't moved past those? (Okay, some folks here are stocked up with some obscure things, I'm sure.)

At VinItaly in New York this year, there was a bit push for Morellino di Scansano.  Is it picking up momentum in Italy, or is it just export hype?

Also, I just picked up a Calabrian cookbook.  Any wines from that are you can recommend?

@Faxall Morellino di Scansano i think have the momentum in Italy, i like what some producers have done last years and quality steadily grow up, usually more power than elegance now some winery have produced wines with an outstanding elegance. The one i like mostly is Poggio Argentiera, two Morellino di Scansano, "Capatosta" is the reserve wine and "Bellamarsilia" is the base. Both are good wines, Capatosta have an outstanding elegance (made from old vineyards). Last vintage, 2009, probably is the best one for Capatosta.

Edit: link to the winery shop

About Calabria i'm not really educated but there's some good bottles of "Cirò" and there's a really rare sweet wine called "Greco di Bianco" if you can find it try it!
