In Norway, August was the month for Ageno wine … this gold-colour wine from La Stoppa, a long maceration white wine, that Ole Jacob Skagen and David Johansen with Vinum, so surprised by so much aromas and such a structure presented to the Monopole some months ago.
They were right : this wine received a warm welcome and is today in some Monopole stores, the same with la Macchiona in all sizes : bottles, Magnum and Dobble Magnum. Gutturnio is a private importation from Vinum and we hope would be soon in the stores too …
The trimestrial wine tasting organized with the Monopole in order to let the stores taste the new wines is also a good occasion for importers to present again other wines from their Portfolio … up to 8. I was really pleased to know that Ole Jacob and David selected wines from Mas Foulaquier : Orphée and Calades. A very qualitative tasting thus !
Orphée more on the fruit and very lively, Calades 2005 open and more structured have been tasting and tasting again by the professionnals … thanks to you Ole Jacob and David !
