ITALY

Italy is a wonderful patchwork quilt of a country with incredible regionality and local traditions. Nowhere more is this apparent than in the rich profusion of indigenous grape varieties that grace the slopes and plains of many of Italy's wine producing regions. The production of fine Italian wines dates back over a thousand years. But it wasn't until relatively recently that a wave of young producers started to turn their attention to producing eye catching fine wines. Some did this by introducing international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay but others have worked hard with their native varieties to showcase just what a wealth of riches the country has to offer. This has had a profound effect on all aspects of the production of fine Italian wines and some would say that this is its golden age, with high quality available from house wines all the way up to the great wines of Barolo, Chianti and Brunello.

We are proud to represent some of the true icons of the Italian wine scene and with the recent run of fine vintages there has never been a better time to discover some of these gems. Explore our full...

TASTING NOTES

Intense, persistent, sophisticated aroma of hawthorn, grapefruit, rennet apple, white peach and a pleasing undertone of acacia honey. Fresh and properly balanced on the palate, it rewards us with interesting developments of taste. The wine’s structure makes it particularly suitable for the dishes of traditional Ligurian cuisine, such as “testarolo” pancakes with mushrooms, Ligurian-style stuffed pasta, anchovy and squid pies.

From vines planted over a century ago on sandy loam soils at over 850m on Etna’s vertiginous slopes, this is a remarkable expression of the indigenous Carricante grape.

TASTING NOTES

As always, this Barbera impresses for its sheer depth and charm.  It comes from vines close to the Gavarini vineyard.  Gianluca employs a very gentle use of barriques to help soften the sharp natural acidity of the Barbera.  The result is pure joy.  Its mouth-watering, juicy bramble fruits combine on the palate with sleek and softly spiced essence.  This is...
