Neal Rosenthal :: Under the Radar Winemakers and the Indigenous Grapes of Italy
In its best and purest form wine must reflect a specific sense of place. Neal Rosenthal brings to the market distinctive wines that reflect this devotion to the concept of “terroir”.
â€œThe role of the winemaker is to render the fundamental character of the wine in its most clear and precise form so that it speaks to us of its geographical origin, its birthplace as it were, and the special conditions obtained in the particular vintageâ€¦ An overwhelming percentage of wine made today refers only to where it wants to be â€“ not from where it comes.â€
