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. Italian wine production 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. Explore our full selection of Italian wines today.

TASTING NOTES

Incredibly fresh and zesty this is going to make perfect summer drinking. Refreshing acidity with concentrated pear, apple and apricot flavours. Whilst primarily about crisp fruit characters there is a touch of minerality and almost waxy texture here. A blend of 80% Vermentino and 20% Chardonnay, this will provide extremely enjoyable drinking for the next year.

Pinot Bianco is an often ignored variety that yields delicately aromatic and beautifully textured whites. White flowers, peach blossom and stone fruit delicately waft from the glass. A truly delightful nose leads onto a green apple filled mouth with a weighty, textured palate. A streak of minerality and fine acidity lift this Pinot Bianco and provide a refreshing finish. A...
