Villa Schinosa

Charles Scicolone  ( zijn roots komen van ......? ) is in de VS bekend als wijn consultant en publiceert artikelen voor , een website met informatie over Italiaans-Amerikaanse betrekkingen. Uiteraard maakt Charles vele wijnreizen naar Italie en bezoekt ter plekke producenten en wijnschrijvers. Afgelopen Januari bezocht hij Puglia en maakte ook kennis met de wijnen van Villa Schinosa, ook in het assortiment van Ombrerosse.
Nero di Troia en Moscato Dolce
..........Next we visited Villa Schinosa, a winery that I had visited a few years ago.  I had been impressed by their wines. When I walked into the wine cellar I was happy to see that everything was the same. Two long rows of barrels of Slovenian oak 35 HL and not a barrique in sight. Another winery we visited had a large room filled with many new barriques. After a few minutes I had to leave because the smell was making me ill. At Villa Schinosa all the wines are aged in stainless steel or in botte grande.
I like their 100% Uva di Troia 2007 DOC. The wine is aged for two years in large barrels of Slavonian oak 35HL and for 3/6 months in bottle before release. It is a very elegant wine with black fruit aromas and flavors and hints of violet with a very pleasant finish and aftertaste. It is a very good food wine.
 Moscato di Trani  2006 DOC 100%  Moscato Reale di Trani.  Villa Schinosa.
The grapes are left to wither for about a month until the middle of October. This is a well balanced and full favored dessert wine with aromas and flavors of apricots and almonds. It has a long finish and nice aftertaste.
