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...

Giacosa’s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse.

TASTING NOTES

This is Brunello in all but age; made from declassified Sangiovese and produced in the same way and style as its older, more age-worthy brother. The 2015 ‘Ignaccio’ is a hallmark Rosso di Montalcino. Quintessential floral and earthy notes accompany Il Marroneto’s sour-cherry fragrance and an invigorating freshness. It has just the right structure to be enjoyed immediately, but can...

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.
