Nice article in the Volkskrant about winery Mazzola in Le Marche by Onno Kleyn in which he describes the Bandita wine. This beautiful wine is only available in the Netherlands at Nostro Vino

COLUMN  ONNO KLEYN

A wine that stands like a house
January 17, 2020

I was visiting just when the olive harvest was underway last October. Cantina Mazzola in Le Marche has a frantoio, an olive centrifuge (the successor to the press), which is also used by local growers. While the cars with crates drove olives back and forth and the intensely green oil ran out of the machine, I tasted the wines from the small organic company. They don't lie. Manuel Giobbi makes very intense drinks from the region's own grape varieties, including the lacrima di Morro d’Alba, an abrasive tough blue, which gives you a healthy wine that you can use to detox - if you believe in it. I like it the most when he gets company of other varieties, such as sangiovese and montepulciano. Giobbi already does this merging in a very old vineyard, the Bandita. The resulting wine stands like a house and therefore received all sorts of awards, from the Gambero Rosso to the Vinitaly. Very intense and made entirely "on the fruit", without maturing in oak. The power of the lacrima balanced by the elegance of the other grapes: beautiful.

Last Saturday I did a nice tasting at the mill "de Otter" in Amsterdam in collaboration with Ca'Palazzo.

The mill was also put into operation and those present were given a tour of the working sawmill.

A message from Ca'Palazzo, where we will be present. It is free walk-in and of course everyone is welcome to get acquainted with a selection from our wine range.
It is held in the sawmill "de Otter", Gillis van Ledenberchstraat 78A, 1052VK Amsterdam

 

 

Ca'Palazzo drink Saturday 14 December 2 to 6 pm.

If you have been to Ca'Palazzo and have delicacies put on transport, you can come and collect them. We tasted at Cantina Frantoio Mazzola and of course there was also bought. Nostro Vino will also be present on Saturday to taste some of the top wines that are still unknown to us. So even if you just want to enjoy your stay in advance on your 2020 holiday or if you want to orient yourself on that, come and visit the De Otter mill in Amsterdam. We have another great program for next year. Onno Kleyn (of course the truffle week, but also a writing course in 2020) and René Zanderink Natural Travel will in any case be present. Of course I can tell you everything about the cycling program with, among other things, cycling in Italy and Pro4mance & Eric van den Bogaard and the creative weeks with Annette Wessels. On Sunday I will be at Maroeska Metz, because we will also have a wonderful culinary week with her.
As long as the weather allows it, the mill will turn and be visible.



From December 2019, some of our wines will be on the Kunstplaza Schurer map in Assen.

Here one can, while enjoying one of our wines, enjoy beautiful art in a very cozy environment.


A nice message from one of our cantinas from Italy. A very nice success for Mazzola:

We are proud to announce you that Mazzola wines at the first participation on Gambero Rosso wines guide, we are awarded with 2 glasses on Glarus, Sangvineto and Bandita!

Once again our supplier Terra di Serrapetrona has also received the prize this year from Touring Club Italiano - Vini Buoni d'Italia with its "Robione" wine. This prize was awarded by both the professional jury and by wine enthusiasts. Congratulations.


1 juli 2019

In recent weeks we have visited our famous local winemakers again in Le Marche. View the cantinas, admire vineyards and see the entire process of how these fantastic wines are made. The main objective was to find a supplier that makes organic wines that fit into our range. We found this at Cantina Mazzola, lying on the beautiful hills of Scapezzano, just 3 km from the town of Senigallia. Highly recommended and an excellent addition to our existing and now wide range of Le Marche wines. They can be found and ordered on our website.
