We have tasted a handful of nice wines from the range of Zonum Fine Taste, a new wine and food importer (to Sweden). From Spain we tasted wines from the family producer Cellers Capanons-Osso that has vineyards both in DO Montsant and in DOQ (DOCa) Priorat, both in Catalonia in northern Spain. From Italy we tried prosecco from Malibràn.
Vessants 2009, DO Montsant, Cellers Capafons-Osso:
Quite a lot of southern “heat” in this wine and plenty of ripe fruit. The alcohol level is high but is balanced by the high acidity, which gives a well-balanced wine. ~20 euro.
Masos d’en Cubells 2004, Priorat, Cellers Capafons-Ossó:
Equally exellent balance in this wine in spite of the high alcohol. Full-bodied, powerful and complex with also elegant. ~50 euro.
Malibràn Credamora Col Fondo Senza Solfiti aggiunti, Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco 2014:
No added sulphur in this wine. Light and very elegant prosecco with no more than 10.5% alcohol. Lots of flavours with some toastiness and flowers. Col Fondo is an old method that signifies that the wine has a secondary fermentation in bottle and is unfiltered.
Malibràn 5 Gramme Prosecco Brut:
Only five grammes of sugar in this very tasty and complex prosecco with plenty of fruit and good length and body.
