Details

Poiema Marzemino Vallagarina Eugenio Rosi, biodynamic, 100% Marzemino, artisan wine, animal scents, pure, long finish. Poiema is named after Eugenio's daughter who was very ill at birth and nearly died. Now a healthy little girl, she helps Eugenio stick the labels on his bottles. This is unique red wine made by a true artisan. Its vibrant purple colour entices the drinker and leads to a unique nose of intense ripe cherry, wild raspberry, violets, almond and notes of cigar. The palate is impressive and showing an elegance and power seldom found in the Marzemino variety. The 30% of Uva Passita (shrivelled grapes) adds a richness and opulence that makes this an exceptional artisanal wine with special character. The silkiness of the wine makes it ideal with a range of foods from robust stews and grilled meats to Carpaccio and roast peppers! In the mountains they might have Bigoi (similar to the Veneto s bigol, spaghetti and sauce of duck liver and innards with vegetables and herbs) or even strangolapreti ("priest strangler" gnocchi of spinach, flour, eggs and cheese). Eugenio makes beautiful hand crafted wines that truly express his artistic soul, his natural approach to wine making and to life.

Eugenio Rosi really is one of the great's of artisan wine making, he thinks outside the box, goes his own way and defies convention, not least with his 'Jesus Christ' like appearance. He is one of the key figures in the 'Dolomitici organisation which promotes artisan and natural production in the Trentino. He is also the first inspirational artisan wine maker i ever met over a memorable dinner at 'Due Veneti' in Marylebone. We had several bottles of his beautiful Marzemino and Eugenio was disarmingly chatty and humble. Poiema is named after his daughter who was very ill at birth and nearly died. Now a healthy little girl, she helps Eugenio stick the labels on his bottles. Eugenio is also an integral part of the 'Dolomitici' organisation which is a group of thirteen artisan wine producers from the Trentino who have come togther to promote natural, sustainable wine production in their region. The wines of Eugenio typify the Trentino but also the natural style of the artisan and to a certain extent the purity of imperfection. Wines like his are not the same very year, they taste different every time you open them and in what context. Natural wine is alive and non more so than the delicious bottles produced in tiny quantity by this natural wine guru. Cin Cin Eugenio, hope to see you again soon over a few glasses.
