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.

100% Nerello Mascalese.  This youthful and deliciously perfumed wine has a fine summer fruit aroma.  Cherry and floral elements combine on the palate alongside a hallmark red-apple skin crunch.   The tannins are tightly packed and fine accompanied by a kiss of oak which adds a subtle roundness.  This is an approachable and extremely tasty Etna Rosso; it will pair brilliantly...

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.

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.

Full, rich and complex with hints of spice. Sweet and sour fruits: orange and grapefruit over a core of minerality. Very vibrant and joyful with zippy acidity, this Verdeca enlivens the palate and begs for salty seafood. Incredibly moreish and quite astonishingly good value. This wine is exceptional and a real treat for food and wine lovers, as it will...
