Italy, Spain and Portugal fine wine case
The wines from this Italian producer never fail to impress. In a trickier vintage than 2015 or 2016 Aldo Vacca has come up with the goods. A beautifully perfumed Nebbiolo with red apple, rose and black tea. The tannins are youthful and firm but are balanced by the sweet cherry core and long spiced finish.
Lovely Spanish red from a notable estate set in a prime location in Spain's famous Ribera del Duero region. The magnificent 2010 is densely flavoured, stylish and structured, and, unusually, aged for over 10 years by the property before release. This slow, gentle maturation results in a wine of considerable complexity and texture.
A highly accomplished example of the Dão region's signature white grape encruzado, from the heart of the region. Pale and refined, no toastiness as yet, but with appetising freshness, a hint of honey, creamy texture and long finish. A Decanter World Wine Awards silver and International Wine Challenge bronze medal winner in 2021.
An outstanding Italian pinot bianco with balanced creamy oak and concentrated apple and mineral flavours that last on the long finish. This is a white that could be decanted as, given a little air, herbal notes will develop on the complex subtle perfume.
Refined Douro red, concentrated but fresh, with heady floral aroma, a sprinkling of cedary spice, fine grained tannins and smart, elegantly integrated French oak. It is now two decades since the Symingtons of Portugal joined forces with their friend Bruno Prats, formerly of Château Cos d’Estournel in Bordeaux, to produce the flagship Douro red Chryseia. Post Scriptum was born later, in the spirit of a Bordeaux ‘second wine’, approachable younger but a fine wine in its own right.
