Add To Cart

Alta Alea, Vino Bianco, Andrea Occipinti, Gradoli, Italy

Floral sort fruit and lychee flavours with a wonderfully fresh and minerally finish. Organically grown grapes producing particularly low yields.

 

Rossese, D’Dolceacqua, Testalonga, Liguria, Italy, 2015

Winemaker Antonio Perrino is from Dolceacqua, a quiet, pretty little town in the Ligurian foothills - it is here that his small area of vines on steep terraces high up in the hill make deliciously quaffable wine. Surrounded by old olive trees and wild herbs.

Antonio makes the wine in his garage in the town centre, the same way he did with his father 50 years ago. A truly artisan operation.

Rich, herbaceous red fruits.

Delicious with a good hearty beef stew.

 

Rosso Di Valtellina, Nebbiolo, AR.PE.PE, Lombardia, Italy, 

Made from 50 year old vines - the grapes are harvested across the various crus. Pretty and delicate yet fully sure of itself and flavoursome.

In the true words of the producer.... "When he presented his "prelude for solo violin" to the Parisian public, the young Johan Sebastian Bach appeared fragile and evanescent, but master of an impressive technique. He had nothing ordinary and every shot of the bow sang a new music that left everyone speechless."

Perfect accompaniment to pork or veal. We first enjoyed this wine with Porchetta sunday roast - winner! 

 

Bianchetto, Le Coste, Gradoli, Lazio, Italy, 2015

Gianmarco and Clementine's hand tend to their vineyards that sit amongst olive groves, oaks & chestnut trees, near the volcanic lake Bolsena - a strong setting for vines to grow amongst. 

The wines are vinified in an ancient cellar in the village, Gradoli.

This is a blend white of Procanico, Malvasia, Moscato and more that spends just a brief period of time in contact with the skins. Fragrant, nutty, pure and delicious.

Goes brilliantly with smoked fish and meats.

 

Rosato, Podere Santa Maria, Montalcino, Toscana, Italy, 2016

When Minnie's dad and Orson first tried this at Christmas tastings a month ago, it was an instant must have.

Marino Colleoni and his wife Luisa discovered a patch of old vines buried deep under shrubs on Montalcino’s northern reaches while taking an evening walk, thats where it all began.... what more of a romantic story do you want behind a beautiful bottle of wine?!

From Collioni’s Brunello vineyard, right next to the family home. Pale, fresh, lively and delicious rose.

 

Mai Domi, Blend, Farnea, Colli Euganei, Veneto, Italy, 2015

Marco Buratti’s vineyard is in the Colli Euganei National Park, with grape vines having been planted there since the eighteenth century - treating the land with the respect is deserves, Marco doesn't use any chemicals in the growing process of the grapes.

Mai Domi is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet and the extremely rare Pataresca grape. Marco has blended them to perfection here, such a tasty drop that won't last long once opened.

Savoury, bramble fruits and spice. Perfect for sitting by the fire and supping!
