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

Well-rounded and full-flavoured thanks to nicely gauged acidity and generous extract. Almondiness underpins the lingering aromatic length. The Tocai Friulano grape makes this wine an unrivalled partner for air-dried prosciutto crudo di San Daniele ham and delicate cured meats such as culatello. A match made in heaven if served with herb omelettes and risottos or egg and asparagus-based dishes. Vegetable soups...

Very aromatic yet elegant with distinctive yellow peppers, sage, tropical fruits, peach and melon and wild fennel. This Sauvignon is full-bodied, gracefully contoured and velvety-smooth. Marvellous with crustaceans whether raw or gracing a plate of pasta. Excellent with aromatic spring herb risottos.

Le Difese is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Instantly appealing with great elegance and length, aromas of ripe, sweet cassis and plum fruit with a lick of spice.

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...
