Stelline di Cortese
This delightful Cal-Italia wine, made from estate-grown fruit.
The Mosby Stelline di Cortese, or Little Stars of Cortese is a dry sparkler reminiscent of an Italian Prosecco. This is the ideal wine to serve with brunch, as an accompaniment to a cheese plate, or simply as a respite from a busy afternoon. Delightfully effervescent, our Stelline hints at green apple flavor that leads to a dry, toasty finish. Try this wine with Pecorino cheese drizzled in honey, Prociutto-wrapped figs or an assortment of dried fruits and nuts. Perfect for the holidays.
Stelline di Erbaluce (imported from Piemonte, Italy)
Erbaluce (“dawning light”) is an ancient variety of grape whose origins are unknown but has been grown for centuries in the sub-Alpine hills of Piemonte. First written accounts of this grape are from 1606, at which time it was made into a sweet wine in the passito-style. Today one can still find that original style, but some producers (like Cieck) are fermenting it totally dry, which is our preference. This sparkling variation showcases the fine minerality, the fresh floral tones, and the buzzing acidity for which the grape is known. Ideal to pair with antipasti, fried appetizers, and killer with smoked trout.
Stelline di Vernaccia (red sparkling wine imported from Marche, Italy)
Vernaccia translates (loosely) into “vernacular” and as such, is a name regionally applied to many different types of grapes. This variation is unique to the hills and valleys of the Marche province of east-central Italy, where it is known as Vernaccia Nera, the “local black grape”. Enjoyed there with a specific type of native sausage (wonderful, but unknown here in the U.S.), and also with a savory cookie and with pecorino cheese, it is at once a little bit sweet, a little bit bitter, part fruity and part root-y; a complex and thought-provoking companion to a platter of various cured meats and salami, and of course the ubiquitous Pecorino cheese. If you haven’t experienced a wine such as this one in Italy, you’re in “uncharted waters”… enjoy the adventure!
The Mosby Teroldego is a noble wine that introduces itself through a nose of almonds and flowers. The lush flavors of ripe raspberry and brown spice are followed by a smooth, lingering finish. Teroldego pairs especially well with beef, lamb, or game. Try a bottle with a grilled steak or butterflied leg of lamb. Served with family and friends, this wine turns a meal into a celebration.
The Rotaliano plain of northeastern Italy’s Trentino-Alto Adige region has been growing and producing Teroldego grapes for over 500 years. Mosby Winery is one of the few growers and producers of Teroldego in California.
A bright, floral nose is followed by flavors which include lychee, citrus and pear. The finish is dry and clean like the traditional Traminers of Northern Italy. Excellent on its own as an aperitif, this wine pairs nicely with smoked meats, poultry or spicy Asian cuisine.
