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

Undoubtedly the star of the show for me, this wine bears all the hallmarks of beautiful, intense Tuscan Cabernet. Showy and rounded with a wild, spicy and concentrated texture. There are hints of smoke and tar beneath the dense, sweet core of fruit and exotic spice. The finish is long, rich and impressive. Wonderfully youthful in its freshness – quite...

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...

Giacosa’s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse.
