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. The production of fine Italian wines 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 the production of fine Italian wines 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...

TASTING NOTES

The 2011 vintage saw Perlato del Bosco Rosso make a glorious return to its Sangiovese-only origins; one of the very few pure Sangiovese wines on the Tuscan coast. Pure, black fruit bursts from the glass with subtle highlights of earth, leather and smoke. The palate mirrors the intense, dark berries and adds heady aromas of fragrant herbs, flaunting its depth...

In the hands of the Tiefenbrunner estate, Muller Thurgau make something of true beauty. The far northern region of Italy; Alto Adige, is the perfect environment for creating aromatic whites and Tiefenbrunner achieve this with aplomb. This is an immensely complex white offering up peaches, apples and a hint of jasmine tea. A beautiful hazelnut character develops on the palate...
