#Moscato!!!!! come essere piacevolmente sorpresi

Ma puo’ un Moscato competere con un Gewurztraminer?
Assolutamente si, le cantine Marco Bianco di Santo Stefano Belbo producono un moscato secco superlativo; il nome? Leonhard

Se vi trovate in un ristorante giapponese, chiedete questo vino e dimenticatevi del gewurztraminer e dei suoi simili.

Se poi volete cambiare per abbinare al dolce scegliete il Crivella 2011, ma se avete la fortuna di trovare il 2003 non potete farvelo sfuggire.

Volete ancora cambiare? Ebbene si potete scegliere il Meramentae, un moscato brut che vi stupira’ e che non riuscirete a definire e vi troverete ad inseguirlo fino ad amarlo alla follia.

Come abbinare il Meramentae? Mozzarella di Bufala, ricotta, burrata, come passeggiare mano nella mano con la vostra ragazza.

Infine, anche se il meno sorprendente, Belb un moscato dolce leggero che potete bere nei pomeriggi assolati osservando un paesaggio dei mille colori (le #Langhe ad esempio

Buona degustazione



A journey to Langhe and Roero…. A journey to passion… 



A perfect Night in one of my favourite restaurant @Ilversodelghiottone with friends. Battuta al coltello, Ravioli del Plin, Tajarin and eggs everything paired with Alba white truffle. Finding this precious tuber seems very hard this year; Our trifolao have found less then 100gr in one week.

As usual Gil has been amazing in the kitchen and service at the table friendly and perfect.

With appetizer and pasta we drank Nebiolo Martinenga from Marchesi di Gresy winery, right choice we made, then Aldo Conterno Barolo 2005 and 2004 eating meat; 2005 vintage for me has been better but both bottle were good. Traditional production without barrique (french oak),  just 30 moths in big barrels, taste was simply but perfect balance with fruit and spices in your palate.



Barolo1961 for president


Dear President Obama, I would like to reccomend You to celebrate Your Birthday with Barolo Borgogno 1961, it’s amazing and it’s really worth the trip; I have just tasted it, trust me. (https://marclifestyle.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/barolowine/). 

A celebration sipping the wine in the Langhe region where Barolo is from would even be better… but I guess that even if You are the most powerful man in the World, you can not take the trip, so take advantage of Eataly NY invitation.  

Happy Birthday
