  • Malvasia Bianca

    Malvasia Bianca Sammarco


    750ml Bottles

    Although “Malvasia” is the name of the family of various Malvasia grapes, when used on its own it usually refers to Malvasia Bianca, one of the varietals that stands apart from the rest. The scarcity of rainfall and the soils of calcareous and clayey composition give wines with remarkable body and alcohol content, with intense and surprising bouquets. The dazzling light of long summers, the scents of the sea and the essences of spontaneous flora, carried by the breezes that blow from the coast towards the interior contribute to the formation of their peculiar olfactory character

    On the nose: Complex characterised by the fusion of aromatic notes of citrus, pineapple, banana and vanilla. Subtle memories of white-fleshed fruit and aromatic herbs

    On the palate: Sweet notes of hazelnut. The taste is clear freshness. Light flavour with hints of fruit and fresh hazelnut and butter combine with a remarkable freshness in the mouth. Soft and pleasant, it closes the tasting with a balanced alcoholic note.

    Recommended combination with food: Sea bass carpaccio, sashimi, scallops on saffron cream. Traditionally: stewed Taranto mussels, pasta and dried tomatoes.

    Serve at 18°C

  • Nuovo Quadro Gavi del Comune di Gavi 2019


    750ml Bottles

    This wine comes from Nuovo Quadro, a single vineyard site with chalky mineral soils, at the foot of the Battistina hill. Winemaking takes place at Araldica’s La Battistina winery who took over this vineyard in 2002.  It has transformed it into one of the preeminent Gavi producers of the region. The Cortese grapes are typically hand-harvested in mid-September, and the freshly picked grapes are gently crushed before undergoing temperature controlled fermentation in small volume stainless steel tanks. The wine remains in contact with the lees for up to 6 months before being fined, filtered and bottled, giving the wine a rich full flavour, with an enticing nose of white peach and pear with hints of fresh lime and gooseberry. The refreshing and zesty citrus notes and ripe peachy characters are balanced by crisp acidity and pronounced minerality.

  • Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

    Orsetto Oro Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

    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.

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.

  • Sale! Orsetto Oro Passerina

    Orsetto Oro Passerina


    750ml Bottles

    Passerina is an ancient and traditional grape variety use in the making of white wines in the March region.  There are also plantings in Emilia-Romagna and Lazio.  The variety differs significantly from region to region in its wines but all with the familiar citrus fruit character.

    The word “Passerina” comes from “passero” the Italian for sparrow.  They have a voracious appetite for ripe passerina grapes. In Italian, adding ‘ina’ at the end of a word implies a diminutive, and so indicates the relatively small size of the Passerina grape.

    The berries skin is quite thick and ripens to a deep golden colour. They ripen with high levels of sugar and high acidity. Hand harvested in early/mid September, they undergo cold temperature controlled maceration. The must is then aged in stainless for several months, before bottling.

    On the nose: Its bouquet is intensely floral with notes of acacia and citrus lemon zest and grapefruit

    On the palate: Fresh citrus characteristics, ripe stone fruits, zesty acidity with a clean mineral aftertaste..

    • Pork chops with fennel and roast potatoes

  • Pelissero Barbera D'Alba


     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 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.

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