Azienda Agricola Cecchini Marco

This past week here in Italy was a special due to the shooting stars that fall around this time of night every year. In the center of Mestre (the town just outside Venice) AIS held a fair called 'Calici di Stelle' or 'glasses of stars' which represented a few wine producers in the Veneto in Fruili. For 5 euros you could taste all you wanted!
One very prepared producer from Friuli we met was Azienda di Marco Cecchini. With a variety of grape types, they offer whites such as Pinot Grigio and Tove', which is also a white wine and combines Tocai Fruilana at 90% and Verduzzo at 10%. Really fresh and mineral, the Tove' carries out clean profumes of white fruit and flowers. Their red, the indiginous Refosco, was intense, complex and and soft. For a final treat they offer Verlit and Picolit. Both sweet desert wines the Verlit is made from the mertage of Verduzzo and Picolit grapes. Mature apricot and fig aromas filled our noses, while its velvet like consistancy remained on our tongues. Quite interesting and different then the normal desert wines. And if youre into grappa... they have that too.

In una bella serata d'agosto in Piazza Ferretto a Mestre si è svolta una manifestazione chiamata 'Calici di Stelle' con la collaborazione dell'A.I.S.
La manifestazione si proponeva di far conoscere al pubblico dei produttori di vino, formaggi ed olio; la fortuna ha voluto che sia la temperatura che l'umidità non fossero delle peggiori quindi era veramente gradevole trascorrere alcune ore in compagnia di amici.
Tra gli stand di vino ci siamo soffermati a lungo in quello dell'Azienda di Marco Cecchini, un personaggio molto interessante. Preparatissimo nel presentare i suoi prodotti e nello spiegare fin nei minimi dettagli alcuni particolari della vinificazione sconosciuti ai più.
Mi son veramente dilettato nella degustazione delle sue opere dal Pinot Grigio al Tovè, quest'ultimo un uvaggio fra Tocai Friulano per il 90% e il Verduzzo Friulano per il restante 10%.
Notevole veramente la freschezza e la sapidità del Tovè che si presentava con il suo giallo paglierino pulito con i profumi gradevoli di frutta bianca e fiori freschi.
Parlando abbiamo anche assaggiato il Refosco, vitigno rosso autoctono friulano di cui il nostro Marco ne andava fiero e direi con ragione perchè mi ha veramente impressionato la sua intensità, complessità e morbidezza.
Alla fine ho avuto l'onore di assaggiare un vino passito gelosamente tenuto in un frigorifero lontano da occhi rapaci. Era il Verlit un uvaggio di Verduzzo Friulano e Picolit, quest'ultimo interessantissimo vitigno autoctono del Friuli Venezia Giulia raro da trovare ma piacevolissimo da bere. I profumi del Verlit spaziavano dall'albicocca ai fichi, morbidissimo in bocca con un finale minerale e sapido interminabile.
Fantastico!
Una vera stella tra i calici.
