Winery: La Zerba

The La Zerba Estate
This is a family run winery located in the village of Tassarolo, in the Piemonte region.

The
La Zerba Vineyard
The estate spreads over 10 hectares (24.7 acres). The vineyard is located 1,476 feet above sea level. This high elevation leads to crisp, white wines that have zesty, mineral and lively characteristics. Historically, the wines of Tassarolo have lead the DOC of Gavi as the best in the region, not Gavi di Gavi, which is all about marketing. The estate is 8.5 hectares (21 acres) and produces classic Gavi. Furthermore, in top years a special cru is produced called Terra Rossa, Gavi. The DOC Gavi was founded in 1974 and consists of these villages: Gavi, Tassarolo, Novi Ligure, Pasturana, Capriatta D’Orba, Serravalle Scrivia, San Cristo Toro, Parodi, Bosio, and Carosio. The grape of Gavi is Cortese.

Zerba Gavi 2014

Zerba Gavi 2014 is made from 100% Cortese.


Cryomaceration. The skins remain in contact with the must for 36 hours and a constant temperature of 6 degrees. The must is then racked and is allowed to ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel. No malolactic fermentation.
The wine shows a pale yellow color, a delicate and quite elegant bouquet with a pleasing floral scent mingled with honeydew melon. Round on the palate, a nice body and a good balance between acidity and the ripe fruits. The finish is long, clean and persistent. Chilled, it is a nice aperitif and a perfect companion to pastas, cream sauces, white meats, fish and light fried food

El Cortijillo Tempranillo La Mancha 2015

Up front aromas of raspberry and cherry fruit, medium to light weight, Rhône wine in character, cherry fruit flavors, followed by bright acidity. Reminds of a mythical cross between a Pinot Noir and a Côtes-du-Rhône. Pleasant and fun, bistro red.

Made from 30 year old vine.

Luis Canas Reserva Seleccion de la Familia Rioja 2009

Luis Canas Reserva Seleccion de la Familia Rioja 2008  is made from 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano

45 years old vines
Alcohol: 14,5º
Total acidity: 5,73 g./l.
Volatile acidity: 0,73 g./l.
PH: 3,53
Free SO2: 28 mg./l.
Reducing sugars: 1,3 g./l.

The wines intended for the Reserva de la Familia come from a selection of old vines which meet a number of features such as a good location, good sun exposure and barely fertile soil which ensures a low yield.

Red cherry high notes. Clean nose, with good intensity. Memories of ripe fruit, preserve (jam) on a background of fine wood, with a marked balsamic (eucalyptus, pine) character. Powerful on the palate, dense, structured, with good tannins. The finish is broad, complex, long and persistent. 

This wine's versatility allows us to savour its personality and character with classics such as roast lamb or pork and gamey stews. But it also blends masterfully with mushrooms, truffles, black chocolate, nuts, cream-based or spicy dishes etc.

This particular wine and vintage (2008) was elected "Regional Trophy winner" at the World Wine Award 2014 by the Decanter Magazine. Here are the tasting notes from this review: "A bright, modern nose of blackcurrant and morello cherry, elegant new oak, mineral notes and lovely floral purity. Ripe and fresh palate with firm but suave tannins and a savory character overlaid with powerful smoky aromatics of roasted oak and licorice. Impressive and resounding on the finish."

 


Review:

 "Red Firm and focused, this solid red delivers black cherry, tobacco and cola flavors over firm tannins, with balsamic acidity and a spicy finish. Not a showy wine, but fresh and harmonious. Drink now through 2022.—T.M."

- Wine Spectator (December 31st 2015), 92 pts"

"Opaque ruby. Ripe dark berries, vanilla and candied flowers on the pungent nose, with a minerally quality adding lift. Spicy and expansive on the palate, offering intense cherry and raspberry liqueur flavors and a hint of mocha. Becomes deeper and more broad with air and finishes with velvety tannins and a repeating floral pastille note that lingers with strong tenacity.- Josh Raynolds"

- Antonio Galloni's Vinous (November 2015), 91 pts

"Smoky bacon and barbecued meat aromas are quite prominent in the 2009 Reserva Selección de la Familia. It is slightly more modern and oaky than the regular Reserva offering a sinewy palate where I found a ton of grainy tannins that would require time in bottle and/or powerful food, as the fruit might dry out before the tannins get balanced. Only time will tell. - Luis Gutierrez"
- Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (Issue #218, April 2015), 90 pts

 

Extremely aromatic and beautiful with currants, raspberries, and plums. Hints of flowers too. Full body, firm and silky tannins, and a fresh and bright finish. Made from old vines of 85% tempranillo and 15% other varieties. Drink or hold. (17-Jul-2015) James Suckling 91 Points
