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

This Aleatico is a very unique “meditation wine” with an intense amber color. On the nose it is immediately evident its aromatic structure with dried and candied fruits: apricot, dates and figs.

TASTING NOTES

Sassicaia’s younger brother Guidalberto consistently offers incredible value from the Tenuta San Guido stable and the 2017 is a shining example. With 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. it offers classical aromas of cassis and blackcurrant. The fruit is very pure and inviting, and harmonises beautifully with sweet spice notes from the oak: it spent 15 months in French barriques....

TASTING NOTES

Much more open and expressive than when we tasted in November at the estate, the 2010 showed classic blackcurrant and cassis notes and that hallmark bright note of bright cherry. Deep, spicy and focused, this is an elegant and concentrated wine that displays violets and floral aromas alongside a great, thick texture and tightly wound tannins. There is so much...

TASTING NOTES

This beautifully evolved wine retains its incredible core of pure dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit, spicy dried herbs and tea leaves, framed by tightly knit tannins and a svelte, gentle texture. There is incredible concentration here but a gentle, almost ethereal quality lingers in the mouth and creates a heady, aromatic perfume. Elegant yet powerful, this is a stunning wine...
