£92.00 GBP £101.41 GBP

Here is a wonderful selection of whites and reds from different regions around Italy. As we can't travel right now you can enjoy your own wine tour of Italy at home.

 

Bonelli, Ortrugo - £12.99

Ortrugo? No we hadn’t heard of it either, but turns out that this hidden gem of Emilia Romagna is downright delicious. Layers of lemon sorbet scrumptiousness make this a perfect party pairing – just throw in some crab canapes or a garlic prawn starter and you’ll be on the way to vinous heaven. Its also organic just not certified.

 

Produttori del Gavi, Mille 951 - £16.95

Produttori del Gavi a 50 year old co-operative that has over 100 members and 150 hectares of vines. This is the perfect example of a co-operative that focuses on small farmers with high quality of fruit. 

Gavi is a small commune south of Piedmont towards the coast in Northern Italy. This Gavi is a very fine example of this style of wine, it is grown on a white soil called tuff and has a great minerality and is fresh and elegant.

 

Terlaner Cuvee - £21.99

The Cantina specialise in Weissburgunder  (Pinot Bianco), making a diverse range of different styles. They also produce blends, which are renowned for their finesse and complexity. This wine is the 'Terlaner Cuvee' 2019, a blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. The three grapes all bring different characteristics to the wine.

Scala Ciro Rosso - £14.50

The property has been in the Scala family for 200 years, the winery originally founded in 1949, my dad's birth year, was rebuilt in 2005 and they favour quality over quantity. They are also organic. 

Think of a cross between Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, full of perfume, elegant bright red fruit with soft dry tannins taking you over the finishing line. 

 

Poggiotondo Organic Chianti 2018 - £14.99

The Poggiotondo estate is situated in the hills to the northwest of Empoli in western Tuscany. These hills are south and southwest facing, and are planted primarily with Sangiovese. Alberto Antonini’s estate has been certified organic since the 2014 vintage. His aim is to make wines with a strong sense of place, which exemplify the very best from Chianti.

The nose is elegant with a blend of ripe dark fruits and a hint of earthiness. The palate has supple, velvety tannins and a soft mouthfeel leading to a long complex finish.

 

Massolino, Dolcetto 2018 - £19.99

A family on its fourth generation, making top quality wines in Serralunga d'Alba in the area of Piedmont. The wines from Massolino are highly regarded throughout the world of wine.

Classic notes of fresh fruit like cherries and raspberries. Easy going with plenty of flavour and a great finish.
