    An open, appealing nose, rich in (black) cherry fruit, sweet spice and cinnamon. As it opens, there’s a hint of toasted nuts and five spice. Quite a structured attack with more savoury, earthy flavours on the palate and gently gripping tannins. A serious pinot, built to last.

    This is a blend of 50-50-Schiopettino and Refosco. An explosive and complex nose – blackberries and violets opens into stony minerality, blueberry compote and white pepper spice. The tannins are solid but silky and there is a vibrant freshness, that comes from the Refosco. This is a complex, structured wine which is a true expression of the incredible terroir that they have. The 2008 we tried recently was superb and still full of life.

    This was so impressive that we reserved as much as we could. Sadly only 120 bottles remained, so be quick to get hold of this. Such lightness of touch with notes of mandarin, white peach and the tiniest hint of creamy oak, all with crisp acidity and incredible tension. Stunning.

  • The estate did not bottle any Malvasia Italo & Bruno (Selezione) in 2017, and instead assembed it all into the into the white label Malvasia. This so this wine is absolutely great price.

    This shows real finesse, purity and personality and offers bright cherry and raspberry fruit, subtle earthiness and striking minerality. Drink from 2016.

  • Az Ag Frozza is a tiny family run estate of 8 hectares situated in the very heart of the Valdobbiadene Doc -Colbertaldo Vidor, long recognised in the region for producing terroir infused Prosecco from extreme steep mountain side vineyards in prized sites. Giovanni and his family do everything out in the vineyards as well as the cellar, there are no consulting winemakers, no cultured yeasts and no purchased grapes; rather 100% estate old vines (25-50 years) tended with the traditional pergola system reproduced from massale cuttings and located in the most extreme , rocky, steep parcels to be found in the Valdobbiadene area. Vine density is 4000-5000 vines per hectare.

    As opposed to most Prosecco this is bone-dry and crisp and offers a delicate floral bouquet as well as peach and citrus flavours which keep lingering on the palate. This makes for a fabulous aperitif.

    This comes from Roccapesta`s vineyards, close to the coast which are exposed to gentle Tyrrhenian sea breezes. Because of the cooler climate we get plenty of red cherry and berry fruit as well as some earthy, meaty Sangiovese flavours.

    2015 was a great vintage for Alberto and which is evident when you taste this wine. Black cherry and blackberry fruit the attack, with cinnamon, bitter orange and balsamic notes. Despite the warm feel, there is freshness and tannins are fine and round. There is tremendous energy and vibrancy to this wine, with a long and complex finish. Impressive balance.

    Pale amber pink in colour, 100% Sangiovese `on the skins`. Fresh, fruity. On the nose, a mixture of blood orange and pomegrante. Medium bodied, smooth. 92 pints, Tony Wood.

    Le Potazzine is a mere five hectares of vines, four of which are located around the cellar. The rest comes from a planting further south which helps add an extra dimension and level of complexity to the wines. Previously this wine was aged in stainless steel but now it is aged in large oak foudres, though not new. It is all about purity, refinement and balance with coolness of fruit and stylish tannins. Drink from 2015.

    The quality of this blew us away, so much that we ordered it in bottles, magnums and jeroboams! This has good colour, with ripe aromas of sweet blackberry, wild cherry and fresh flowers. Lots of aromatic and flavour complexity. Fresh acidity keeps the palate clean and melds into a long, precise elegant finish. Antonio Galloni has always said “I believe that Le Potazzine make one of Montalcino’s best Rosso wines of all” and we certainly agree with him.

  • Delicate attack - sweet citrus fruit, peaches, slate with invigorating acidity. This has distinct saline notes that you often find in Sauvignon from here. The delicacy is enhanced by vinification in wood and means it works well with delicate seafood and meats (protecting the flavours rather than attacking them with aggressive aromatics).

    This is a blend of Chardonnay and Nebbiolo (normally 75/25, the latter vinified with no skin contact). It tends to be creamy textured and layered offering great depth. Fruit for this comes from the Pira vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. It has two years cask ageing.
