Conclusive Comment: Lison Classico 2006, smooth, extractive wine. A highly caressing bouquet for Pinot Bianco Lison-Pramaggiore 2006; superior wine-making clarity for Chardonnay Lison-Pramaggiore 2006. Fine density of the two sweet wines tasted, in particular the majestic viscosity of Solamini et Amici Passito 2003. Spine-tingling extracts for the two award-winners, Colmello Rosso 2001 and the smooth Cabernet Sauvignon Selecti 2001. Aged less, they have the basis for excelling. The right expressive fragrance are revealed by Merlot Piave 2005 and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 2005. But the best of the Moletto tastings were offered by its spumanti: of tremendous wine-making and olfactory clarity, the two Proseccos, pleasingly full-flavored the Demi Sec Moletto 2006.
"It certainly cannot be said that the Stival family is sitting idly by. In fact, this year to the labels in the tasting was added Solamini et Amici Passito, an impressive wine made from Sauvignon grapes allowed to dry for four months on grates and then aged for thirty months in barriques. Its products remain varied and of good quality, also thanks to the clayey-calcareous soil so conducive to vine-growing."
3 clusters SOLAMINI ET AMICIS PASSITO 2003: Aroma of dried fig, walnut, hazelnut, barley sugar and whiffs of toasting. The sweetness explodes on the palate, immediately balanced by freshness and warmth. The olfactory perception is full, with the addition of hay, almond and honey. 30 months in barrique.
3 clusters LISON CLASSICO 2006: It has the scent of a bouquet of flowers, with almond, hay and a hint of camomile added. Pungent, well-structured; almond aftertaste.
3 clusters CABERNET SAUVIGNON SELECTI 2001: Subtle nose that offers hints of plum, wild berries, spices, pepper and juniper berry. Consistent to the taste with clean-cut tannins. 48 months in barrique.
3 clusters Piave RABOSO 2001: Offers a bouquet of ripe blackberry and sour cherry, followed by quinine and licorice. On the palate, it offers acidity and tannins in the forefront, but which nonetheless allow the full fruity aftertaste to come through, thanks to the balance created by warmth and smoothness. 42 months in used barriques.
3 clusters SAUVIGNON 2006: Manifests the typical flavor of this grape variety, with clear-cut overtones of tomato leaf, yellow pepper, sage and rosemary. Keen and acidic to the taste, with pleasing citrus aftertaste.
3 clusters BRUT Millesimato 2004: Delicately fragrant and citrusy, it reveals a hint of fruit and white flowers. Balanced, good freshness and citrusy aftertaste.
3 clusters MALBECH 2005: Scent of wild flowers, raspberry, cherry and, at base, a slight balsamic note. Warm on the palate with marked tannins and good aftertaste.
3 clusters REFOSCO dal Peduncolo Rosso 2005: Bouquet opens with rose and violet, followed by wild berry and a balsamic hint. Consistent and balanced on the palate with non-aggressive tannins and fruity aftertaste.
2 clusters MERLOT 2005: Amarena and cherry on the nose. To the taste it is middly fresh and persistent.
2 clusters CABERNET 2006: In the beginning clear vegetal notes, then berries and thyme. Easy to drink with almonds soon as final.
