   Tasting trial: “…Dreams…” from Chardonnay grapes. It features a straw

   yellow, bright colour. On smelling, it expresses complexity and beauty

   with scents of rare elegancy and sophistication. Some exotic scents of

   ripened fruits prevail, along with melted butter, vanilla, pastry. On the

   palate, it keeps all the promises coming from the smelling test, and

   confirms them by enriching them with gentle tastes and fresh, aromatic

   and persisting nuances. (Duemilavini Guida 2003 A.I.S., Dreams 2000)

 

   Remarks: Dedicated to the rock album entitled “The Joshua Tree” by

   the U2 released in 1987 and more specifically the song “Where the

   streets have no Name”. This wine was made with the 1987 harvest

   and throughout the years its name has undergone some changes.

   The first 9 year cycle with the name “Where the Dreams have no end…”,

   had the peculiarity of changing the colour of the capsule every year by

   drawing from the seven colours of the iris plus the white (representing

   light) and the black (darkness) on the label, starting from the white

   anti-clockwise. And, the fourth moon stages were illustrated too.

   In 1996 it became “Were Dreams, now it is just wine!”, for other seven

   years, with a blue capsule where the Hale-Boop comet, appearing at sunset

   from that year, was stylized. Eventually in 2003 a step back to the origin

   with: “W…. Dreams … ……”, by adding below it, the year of the harvest

   and by drawing Mars (my leading planet) on its capsule. And indeed in

   2003, on 25th December, the European spacecraft Mars Express landed on

   Mars, which had never been so close to the earth for 60,000 years. We

   interpreted its dots in “Where Dreams can happen” even though everyone

   is free to take different inspirations. With the 2011 harvest on the occasion

   of the 25th wine production year, we decided to make use of only screw

   caps. It was an obligatory way: screw capping especially with top wine,

   can guarantee the quality that every day we create in our vineyard first

   and then in cellar.
