Nina's Notes

Inspired by a Rare Find

Sometimes wines can feel formal and intimidating. With Trifula wines, the accent is on fun. We came across these very approachable wines from the Piemonte region (Northwest Italy) and knew that our friends here in the States would appreciate them as much as we do. The label depicts a fun-loving dog named Trifula, famous for digging up a rare white truffle near his hometown of Alba. The truffle ended up selling for $1 million dollars. That iconic dog became the namesake for these delightful fruit-forward wines made from the area’s indigenous grapes. One taste of these wines and just like Trifula, you too will feel like you have uncovered something special.

It hasn't been easy to locate the best wines Italy has to offer during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have a trusted group of advisors and wine-hounds helping to locate the perfect wines for DOCG Imports. Please see below for more information on how we have been able to keep bringing you great new wines during these challenging times.

Piemonte (Piedmont) is a beautiful wine region, located in Northwestern Italy. The soil in this region is fertile and rich in minerals, making it one of Italy’s premier wine producing areas. Trifula red wines are recognized for having good structure, a deep red color and a pleasing combination of floral and mulberry notes. Grapes for Trifula wines come exclusively from the Piemonte zone. The wines can be enjoyed now and pair well with hearty meat dishes. 

 

 

Persevering Through the Pandemic

As many DOCG Imports members and followers know, I have a long relationship with Italy and its fabulous wines. I have a summer home on the island of Sardegna (Sardinia), and a passion for exploring all of the Italian wine regions and bringing back the best varietals for you to enjoy. However, with the worldwide pandemic of 2020 and 2021, travel to Europe came to a stand still. Fortunately, my contacts in Italy remained active, keeping me up-to-date on the most exciting wines available from the best small-production wineries in Italy and beyond. My trusted advisors were Paolo Tucci (wine and food aficionado from Lombardia, Italy), Massimilliano Giovannoni (a fine wine purveyor from the Tuscany region) and “Wine Telling” Ricardo, (a noted Italian wine lover, sommelier and blogger) and Lorenzo Gulinello (Pecol). They sent me their most exciting finds and my team and I, at DOCG Imports, did the rest. We made virtual contact with the winemakers then conducted wine tastings in our offices in California to determine which varietals to present to you. While the process was different than usual, I am very pleased and relieved that in the end, this new process led to the discovery of some amazing, environmentally-conscious Italian-made wines. I know you will enjoy them and love sharing a bottle with friends.
