Like the Terra Madre Salone del Gusto last September, the Slow Fish Enoteca offers a rich selection of tastings with 385 degustation offers at the Temporary Tastings.
What exactly is Temporary Tastings? Every afternoon and evening, the visitors will be able to participate in four exclusive events that involve important Italian and foreign wine producers. They will present their rarest wines – here are some details:
La Nas-cëtta di Novello, Thursday 18 May
La Nas-cëtta is a white grape vine that, after years on the edge of extinction, has been taken back up with enthusiasm by a small group of winemakers in the comune of Novello. It is difficult to find the origins of this grape, although the elderly from Langhe area confirm that it has been in the region since centuries. Today, the producers of Novello aim to demonstrate the originality of Nas-cëtta with the relaunching of a Piedmontese white with strong territorial and cultural connotations.
Organized by the Association of Nas-cëtta Producers from Novello, the degustation will include Nas-cëtta wines from various producers:
Stra Giovanni e Roberto Viticoltori
Wines From the Sea , Friday 19 May
Triple A indicates Agricoltori, Artigiani, Artisti (farmers, artisans, artists). Only the farmer who cultivates the land can establish a proper relationship between man and vine, and obtain a healthy and mature wine made solely with natural interventions. Only the artisan is able to have a productive enological process that doesn’t interfere with the originality of the vine. Ultimately, only the artist has the sensibility of a producer, respecting his/her work and ideas, giving life to a great wine where the characteristics of the territory, the vintage and the vine are exalted. Selected by Velier, here is the list of Triple A wines dedicated to viticulture overlooking the sea. From Liguria to the south of Italy, the French coasts of Provence to the Atlantic, from Portugal to the Mediterranean islands…

Col Fondo, Saturday 20 May
Wine with the lees (col fondo) was the daily wine of the historical hills of Prosecco from the end of the 19th century, before autoclave-produced sparkling wines existed. They obtained a still Prosecco in spring, leaving the yeast to rest in a way to have a natural second fermentation resulting in a sparkling, dry and very tasty wine. Since a few years, the refermented Prosecco is not as rare as it used to be, thanks to the historic producers who didn’t stop believing in it.
The following producers will offer col fondo:
Casa Coste Piane
Ca’ dei Zago
Discovering Timorasso, Sunday 21 May
A sneak preview of the Quatar Pass per Timurass that will be held on Sunday June 18th, 2017 in the Tortonese Hills. The protagonists of this native vine’s revival will be presenting their 2015 vintages. Timorasso is a native vine grape from southern Piedmont. It was previously extinct due to heavy use of grapes with less agronomical effort. Since the 1980s, a movement began to save and experiment with old varieties, bringing unique whites and reviving the Tortona territory by giving visibility and faith to their potential. Today, there are more or less 50 hectars of vines and 400.000 bottles per year. Timorasso continues to be widely-known and appreciated in Italy and abroad.
