Vinitaly Day Four, Sunday, Part One

Comfort shoes, flat shoes, cuter heels that are somehow still comfy: despite my arsenal of competent footware, by today my feet are feeling the mileage. With toes crunched up like pretzel nuggets, I manage to shake the tension from my jaw, let go of all stops, and finally – to just go along with the flow.

Every day on the path in we pass a slew of street vendors who mostly sell food (though my brother did dig us up some fetching anti-blood alcohol monitoring tees). Today we pause to snap pics with the vendors we’ve greeted along the way, who by now have become old pals (note the kind gesture in the shadows behind my bro).

With this, Amarone seemed a perfectly normal start to the day, as we met with Montefaustino and sampled their ’05 vintage.

And from here, we segued into a portfolio tasting of the lovely whites H.Lun with grace. We sampled their Pinot Grigio ’09, Sauvignon ’09, and their stellar Sanbichler Cuvee Bianco’09 (40% Pinot Bianco, 40% Chardonnay, 15% Sauvignon, 5% Riesling).

As far as my tastes go, I particularly enjoyed their Sandbichler Sauvignon Blanc, and learned how the winery’s varied terrains and growing altitudes changes the character of the wines across their line. Their Gewurtztraminer ’09, their Passito Sandbichler (of Moscato Giallo, Sauvignon and Riesling), and their Goldmuskateller (Moscato Giallo) were all outstanding, as was the ’09 Lagrein.
