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

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. This depth is lifted by crunchy cherry acidity; tell-tale Sangiovese spice and a streak of grippy minerality add layers of complexity to what is a very complete wine. Drinking very well now...

Pure black current leaf and red cherry nose with an earthy backnote.

TASTING NOTES

Greco is one of the most characterful Italian whites, grown mainly in southern Italy. Guardiene’s 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.

This succulent and juicy Montepulciano d’Abruzzo has an attractive nose of red cherry, blackcurrant and lifted violet notes. Its damson fruit core is supported by liquorice, tobacco spice and finely knit tannins, making this a really appealing wine that would work wonderfully with tomato based pasta dishes, casseroles or a hearty Sunday roast.
