Italy is a wonderful patchwork quilt of a country with incredible regionality and local traditions. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the rich profusion of indigenous grape varieties that grace the slopes and plains of many of Italy's wine-producing regions. While wine production dates back centuries, it wasn't until relatively recently that a wave of producers set new benchmarks for fine Italian Wines. Whether you like a more modernist or traditionalist approach, international or indigenous varieties, the Italian wine scene has never been more exciting.
“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Winesmore

Greco is one of the most characterful Italian whites, grown mainly in southern Italy. Guardienes Greco has a rich pine nut, honeysuckle and butterscotch notes which are beautifully off-set by juicy, tart green apple and pineapple fruit flavours. This full-textured wine would pair very well with a mozzarella and tomato salad or a seafood risotto.more
