  • Nuovo Quadro Gavi del Comune di Gavi 2019

    £14.55£87.30

    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.

    Serve chilled as an aperitif or with seafood and fish dishes.

    Serve at 10-12°C

  • Orsetto Oro Passerina

    Orsetto Oro Passerina

    £16.30£97.80

    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..

    Recommended combination with food: It pairs best with roasted fish with lemon and anchovy, Linguine alla vongole (pasta with clams), Butterflied chicken with lentils

  • Orsetto Oro Pecorino Terre di Chieti

    £16.30£97.80

    750ml Bottles

    This lovely Pecorino wine has been awarded many awards around the wine world most recently the 2020 IWSC.

The grape is light-skinned offering high acidity and high sugar, translating into reasonably high alcohol, balanced by the acidity.

    Hand picked in late September, soft pressed, fermented in stainless tanks at 18-22C. Aged for 6 months on the leas before bottling.

    On the nose: Its bouquet is round with floral hints of acacia and broom, exotic fruit notes with balsamic nuances

    On the palate: Fresh citrus characteristics, with a good minerality, white peach, pear and a hint of pineapple

  • Verdeca Salento

    Verdeca Salento

    £11.75£70.50

    750ml Bottles

    Verdeca is a relatively rare white wine grape variety from southern Italy, now found almost exclusively in the Taranto and Bari provinces of central Puglia (it is easily confused with the similarly named Verdea, an equally rare variety from Tuscany). While it is typically used as a blending grape there are a handful of modern producers who are experimenting with varietal Verdeca wines in order to raise its profile – generally speaking, it is difficult to make a great wine from 100% Verdeca.

    On the nose: Its bouquet is surprisingly intense and fine with a scent of apricot, flowers and rosemary

    On the palate: its balance between freshness, sapidity and alcoholic tenor is perfect. Lovely and persistent, the citrusy and lightly balsamic final creates harmony to the taste

    Recommended combination with food: It pairs best with light risotto, buffalo mozzarella cheese, or more traditionally “pancotto” with vegetables, orecchiette with turnip greens, puccia with onions and even olives.

    Serve at 18°C

  • Zibibbo Normanno

    Zibibbo NORMANNO I.G.T.

    £14.50£87.00

    750ml Bottles

    The word “Zibibbo” is derived from the Arabic word ‘zabib’ meaning raisins. The wine was originally from Egypt and was introduced by the Phoenicians when they landed in Pantelleria, a tiny island situated between mainland Sicily and the northern tip of Africa. Over time, vines of Zibibbo were planted in mainland Sicily, namely in the famous area of Marsala for its very similar terrain and geometry. The grapes have similar aromatics to that of Moscato but are left on the vine until slightly shriveled (a sign of partial fermentation) and then are left to dry in the sun. The result is an elegant and harmonious dessert wine that is the ideal accompaniment for typical Sicilian cakes, especially those with a ricotta cream base.

    Recommended combination with food:

    • Sicilian cakes
    • Cream based desserts
    • Ice cream and fruit desserts

    Serve at 8° – 10°C

    GRAPE VARIETY –          Moscato d’Alexadria
