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. Wine production in the country 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 Italian wine production 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.

TASTING NOTES

Tua Rita’s unique “seaside Sangiovese” is an enchanting expression of the vineyard’s location, named after the beautiful pink marble (“the pearl of the wood”) on which it is grown. Supple and elegant, the 2013 Perlato displays a pretty, floral bouquet; full of roses, violets and hedgerow fruit. Its hint of sweetness and plush, plump tannins are balanced by a bright,...

Intense and heady aromas lead to an unctuous texture with flavours of date, apricot, fruit cake and orange blossom. While very rich and powerful on the palate, it is balanced with beautifully crisp, refreshing acidity.

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

Arguably the finest expression of Chianti Classico we’ve ever tasted from the estate. This is a ripe yet elegant vintage with an attractive, fleshy concentration and sweet-scented fruit, creating a more seductive textured Chianti than the excellent 2010. This depth is lifted by crunchy cherry acidity; tell-tale Sangiovese spice and a streak of grippy minerality add layers of complexity to...

‘2015 was one those years that every winemaker dreams of having at least once in his career. The balanced season with a warm and sunny summer, but with a cool, dry weather during the harvest produced wines that perfectly denotethe seasonal trend. Rarely do we find a perfect balance between the various components of the wine, from the deep...
