    This used to be a 50/50 blend of Barbera and Nebbiolo but from the 2012 vintage it has become a straight Nebbiolo. In both guises it provides a lot of wine for the money. Made without oak, this is a brilliantly pure example. Must be tried.

    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.

  • A blend of 70% Friulano and 30% Ribolla Gialla, this dense and rich white opens with intense aromas of yellow plums, butterscotch and baked apples. Creamy apricot notes follow on the mid palate with spice and vanilla. The texture is silky smooth and refreshing acidity balances the richness. Spicy ginger gently lingers on the finish. This will pair very well with crab and lobster.

    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.

  • Deep and multi-layered on the nose but with delicate floral and honeyed aromas. Hints of passion fruit, fresh apricots and minerals as it opens up. Needs a little time to come out of it’s shell but this will be grandiose. It impresses with its texture and intensity and the long, posed, mineral finish. Goes very well with lighter seafood dishes.

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

    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.

    Produced with Sangiovese from the San Marcellino vineyard and a small percentage of Merlot, Rosato Rocca di Montegrossi is made in part by bleeding must from the vats using the salasso technique, and in part by pressing the grapes. The structured, intense must from the salasso is combine with the more delicate, aroma-rich must from the pressing, kept in steel at a temperature below 6 C for 24 hours to allow solids to settle, and then fermented at temperatures below 16 C for about a month. The wine then rests on the lees at a temperature below 10 C for another 3-4 months to maximize its bouquet. Violet, rose, pomegranate, cherries and blueberries. Fresh and sapid in the mouth, mineral flavours. Vibrant on the palate with a great balance, freshness and acidity. The finish is long and lively. Annual production is about 10,000 bottles.

    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.
