Gambero Rosso 2015

T RE BICCHIERI BANNER (2)

Gambero Rosso is an Italian food and wine magazine founded in 1986. Its name literally translates as "red prawn" and comes from a tavern in Pinocchio where the Fox and the Cat dine.

Every year Gambero Rosso publishes a guide to Italian wine,entitled Vini d’Italia (Italian Wines).

The Gambero Rosso wine ratings in Vini d’Italia are built up on the number of glasses (bicchieri) awarded to a wine. The highest rating is three glasses (Tre Bicchieri), and we were delighted to see a number of wines from our own extensive Italian portfolio among them.

See below for the full list and congratulations to all of our producers who featured. Well-deserved praise indeed!

TASTING NOTES

Created in 2000, the Tiberio Estate is a rising star in Italy. A simple philosophy runs through the estate, respect the "terroir" whilst making modern wines. As we started tasting this Pecorino, hints of citrus charmed the nose moving towards a soft soupçon of peaches and white melon. On the palate the fresh acidity is beautifully balanced by richness due...

TASTING NOTES

Juicy red berries, wild herbs and fruit compote create an attractive and tempting aroma. The palate is redolent with bright cherry fruit, crunchy redcurrant and layers of exotic spice. Seductive and intense, there is a real elegance here – combining fresh fruit and a full, velvety texture. This is a wonderful wine that has a brilliant, mineral-inflected finish. Incredibly versatile,...

TASTING NOTES

Catarratto is one of Sicily's indigenous varieties and one we almost never see on these shores. The brilliant Rallo is one producer championing this variety and really demonstrating what can be achieved when yields are restricted and it receives the attention it deserves. A wine with precise, linear acidity and a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this is all about fresh citrus...

TASTING NOTES

In the hands of the Tiefenbrunner estate, Muller Thurgau make something of true beauty. The far northern region of Italy; Alto Adige, is the perfect environment for creating aromatic whites and Tiefenbrunner achieve this with aplomb. This is an immensely complex white offering up peaches, apples and a hint of jasmine tea. A beautiful hazelnut character develops on the palate...

TASTING NOTES

At the 2014 Italian Tasting, one of the wines was Cantine Lunae's Etichetta Nera (Black Label). Something a little different, it stood out for many of the guests attending. All of the classic zesty lemon, melon and floral aromas that you get from Vermentino are revved up a few notches, so the bouquet explodes out of the glass. This is...

TASTING NOTES

Utterly delicious and hedonistic. Juicy, rich yet savoury fruit. Spice, smoke and floral lift. Wonderful texture, silky and suave offset by bitter cherry and fresh acidity. This is a spellbinding wine which evokes the earthy complexity of this unique terroir in a delightfully drinkable style. Barbagalli 2011 manages to be at once serious, complex and meaningful and joyful. Enchanting.
