RAW WINE fair: 3 of our own producers selected by Isabelle Legeron MW
Many of you may already be familiar with RAW WINE fair (15-16 May, London), a totally independent wine fair created and organised by Isabelle Legeron MW. It celebrates wines with emotion. Wines that have a humanlike, or living, presence. They are also wines that are an authentic expression of a place. They are the polar opposite of industrialised, big-brand, manufactured, nothing-but-alcoholic-grape-juice wines, that use imagery and suggestion to sell a product.
RAW WINE fair is about showcasing growers whose fundamental farming and cellar philosophies make these living wines possible. Many of these wines feature on the lists of the world’s best restaurants. They are wines with cult followings and they’re here, together, in London, for two days only so that wine lovers, connoisseurs and curious beginners alike can come together and try their wines.
In anticipation and celebration of London’s fifth RAW WINE fair this May, The London EDITION, together with Isabelle Legeron MW, will be hosting a pop-up RAW WINE bar in the two weeks leading up to the fair. The temporary watering hole, which will be taking over EDITION’s basement, will showcase a special selection of around 150 low-intervention organic, biodynamic and natural wines, offering one of the most exciting low-intervention wine selections in London.
RAW WINE fair, The Basement Pop-up @ The London Edition (4-16 May)
We are delighted to announce that 3 of our own imported producers have made it to the final selection and will be part of this prestigious pop-up event in London:
Fattoria La Maliosa, with their Maliosa Rosso Toscana IGT, a delicious blend of Ciliegiolo and Sangiovese. Ruby-red, intense, with very balanced tannic structure and fruit concentration. Luxurious and seductive red cherry aromas, with a long, silky finish.
Podere Pradarolo, with their Velius Rosso Asciutto, 100% Barbera made with long skin macerations (90 days). Intense aromas of ripe red cherries, blackberries and blueberries; full bodied, with ample ripe, red and black fruit flavours, and soft, well-integrated tannins.
Casè, with their Riva del Ciliegio Emilia IGT, a Pinot Noir with quite distinctive taste. The altitude of the vineyard and the soil composition (clay and limestone) produce a dry, sharp, and mineral wine. The maceration period and the aging in wood barrels adds structure and huge complexity.
