Isaac's's Bio

Isaac comes from Portland, Maine and worked in fine dining there as ÒlocavoreÓ and micro-brew movements emerged. Authoring wine lists, conducting staff trainings, and educating himself on all aspects of wine, beer, and spirits, he found the beverage business to be an engaging, multifaceted field. In 2005, Isaac moved to New York and started working at a major wine retailer in the city. Before coming to 67 Wine, Isaac worked as a manager at two other wine stores and has given numerous public and private presentations on wine and spirits. He holds certificates from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust through the Advanced Level, having scored in the highest category for each section.

 

Isaac believes that in order to help customers navigate, most salespeople are able to understand and appreciate the wines from every major region. His favorite wines tend to be those that have a defined and distinct character, usually ones from high-altitude or steep-sloped vineyards. It is no wonder, then, that he is responsible for the Italian White category.

Isaac's Wine Selection - Vigneto San Vito Orsi Posca Bianco 2014


The Story

In 2005, Federico Orsi and Carola Orsi Pallavicino took over San Vito estate, which had been making quality wines for the previous 50 years. Their vision included a fidelity to the principals of biodynamic agriculture. They grow the fruit and create the wine all without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or cultivated yeasts. Federico also employs a technique more common to Sherry or Champagne: blending multiple vintages in a single bottling. Officially we list this wine as a 2014, but there is a solera-style perpetual blend that adds to its intrigue.

Tasting Note

Pignoletto is an indigenous grape to the Emilia-Romagna region with an unusually high tannin level for a white wine. This tannin becomes a lovely, fleshy texture in the finished wine. The winemaking avoids the practices of fining and filtration. Therefore, a slight haze remains. But, there is nothing inaccessible about this ‘natural wine’. It is immediately appealing and reveals layers of aroma and flavor. Using the sur lie practice (common in Champagne and muscadet) strengthens the structure. It is also one factor that gives the wine an energetic quality on the palate.

Food Pairing

The Posca Bianca is a wine designed to be served with a meal. Its body, acidity, and texture allow it to bring the best out of a very wide range of food. Because its flavors echo the land from which it comes, taste elements that include an earthy or umami component (mushrooms, arugula, and sushi, for instance) will resonate. Wild mushroom risotto, for example, would be a fantastic partner for this wine.
