  • Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

    Orsetto Oro Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

    £16.25£97.50

    750ml Bottles

    Montepulciano is the most widely planted grape in Abruzzo. The wine is made with rigorously selected grapes from the Terri di Chieti hills in south of Pescara on the east coast, at an altitude of about 200 metres above sea level. The south-east exposure of the vines, the limestone and clay soils and per-hectare yields kept under 120 quintals allow the production of a red wine with a great sensory complexity. The grapes are picked by hand and collected in small wooden crates in the first ten days of October. Once in the cellars, the long maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature for approximately 45 days.

    The wines then mature for six months in concrete vats, for a further eight months in French and Slavonian oak barrels and finally for four months in the bottle.

    On the nose: Luxurious perfume of wild berries, ripe black cherries, blackberries and plum with pleasant notes of vanilla, cocoa, coffee and tobacco

    On the palate: Remarkable structure, and soft thanks to the presence of sweet tannins, with a long, warm finish. High acidity and a full, rounded body. High acidity, high tannins with full body, with hints of vanilla, cocoa, black pepper and a finish of old leather and wood

    Recommended combination with food: Perfect with BBQ meats, game meats, lamb ribs in pistachio crust

  • Corvee Lagrein

    PASSOCROCE LAGREIN D.O.C.

    £20.75£124.50
     750ml Bottles 

    The Passocroce vineyard is a place of choice for the cultivation of Lagrein as it enjoys a happy south-eastern exposure. The soil is slightly sandy, with good clay, originating from lateral Moorish deposits following the disintegration of the local porphids, favouring a natural advance of ripening of the grapes.

     On the nose:  Scents of forest fruit accompanied by hints of star anise, cocoa and tobacco. Allowing for further ageing, the wine will enhance with aromas reminiscent of violet, some lilac and even sage.

     On the palate:  Full body with lush flavours of forest fruits, tobacco and cocoa.

     Recommended combination with food:  A great partner for:

    • Pork chops with fennel and roast potatoes
    • Venison stew with dumplings
    • Strong, hard cheese like Grana Padano

    Serve at 18°C

     GRAPE VARIETY – Lagrein

  • Pelissero Barbera D'Alba

    PIANI BARBERA D’ALBA D.O.C.

    £22.10£132.60
     750ml Bottles 

    The location of this vineyard, the Piani hill, has always been well-known for high quality Barbera production, and the elegance of many Barbera (a grape traditionally rich in colour and acidity but poor in tannins) from the Langhe region has a good structure which gives to this wine a particular identity.

     On the nose:  The very fine olfactory sensations grow slowly, providing first fruity nuances of blackberry and cooked plum and subsequently vinous, of fermentation, typical of Barbera, with the right aromatic contribution of wood

     On the palate:  Acidic impressions characterise this wine which does not hide its tannic endowment. The good structural breadth makes it particularly interesting and has a persistent length.

     Recommended combination with food:  A perfect match for:

    • Seared rabbit livers
    • Thai duck noodle soup
    • Roasted, herb-crusted lamb rack

    Serve at 16 – 18°C

     GRAPE VARIETY – Barbera
