Wines included

Barbaresco, Rizzi 2018

From a successful vintage for this famed part of Piedmont, Rizzi’s Barbaresco is made from south and south-west facing nebbiolo vines which ripen well. A fragrant, sweet-cherry flavoured and spice-liked red that is very attractive in is youth, but there is no rush.

Italy £23.00 per bottle

Chianti Classico, Filetta di Lamole 2018

A gem from the terraced organic vines of Filetta, one of the original and highest sites of Chianti Classico, which produces wine of rare fragrance and finesse and well-balanced silky flavour.

Italy £20.00 per bottle

Soave La Rocca, Pieropan 2019

La Rocca is situated on the only limestone outcrop in Soave, producing a singular example of the garganega grape and one of Italy’s great white wines. A rich, opulent white that has been allowed to develop structure and complexity through ageing in 500-litre barrels, it sports lemon, almond and apple scents, fascinating mineral notes on the palate and a long finish.

Italy £27.00 per bottle

Orvieto Classico Superiore Luigi e Giovanna, Barberani 2018

This Italian white from Umbria is top-quality by any international standard, with almond-skin, oyster shell, sage and lemon-rind flavours that last well on the finish.

Italy £21.00 per bottle

Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine Feudi di San Gregorio 2013

Aglianico is one of Italy’s great grape varieties and this wonderful Campanian riserva showcases its character and class very well. With mature notes of spice and leather complementing its floral aromas and black-cherry flavours, it’s a wine that will open up and develop beautifully in a decanter.

Italy £29.00 per bottle

La Grola Veronese IGT, Allegrini 2017

This dark-cherry scented blend of 80% corvina with 20% oseleta is full-bodied, beautifully balanced and intense. It comes from a perfect hillside site overlooking Lake Garda that produces low yields of concentrated ripe fruit. Matured in wood for 16 months, this is nevertheless a very elegant wine, evoking wild berries, cherry, juniper, and tobacco.

Italy £20.00 per bottle
