    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).

  • Straw yellow colour with greenish hues, white fruit and herbs on the nose with hints of acacia and wisteria. Soft and harmonious palate with a persistent length and freshness. Drink now.

  • 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. This lovely example is bright and lively with impressive intensity and weight.

Vine density is 4000-5000 vines per hectare. This is the driest and raciest of the three cuvées, with a stunning mix of intensity and refinement.

    This is 40% Friuliano, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Riesling. This is a sensational, intricate wine, with a pronounced, herbaceous nose and notes of mandarin, mint and white flowers. It’s all about the texture. It has a beautiful, weighty, silky mouthfeel. The minerality kicks in on the mid palate and there’s a hint of blackcurrant leaf on the endless finish. Precise, multi-layered and a very poised example. Will get even better with some bottle age.

    Marco’s brilliant Vin Santo was made from 100% Malvasia di Toscana in 2008. The bunches are hung one by one on nets in a well-ventilated space under the rafters where the grapes are affected by noble rot. Workers come in every ten days or so and remove the grapes that are ready until about January when the pressing takes place. The thick juice is then aged in casks for about six years and allowed to mellow somewhat. The 2008 has almost 400 grams per litre of residual sugar, not that you would know it from the balanced acidity. It is pure nectar to taste (well drink, as it is impossible to spit this out), intensely concentrated and everchanging, aromas of walnut, syrup, gingerbread with intense butterscotch on the palate. Hugely complex. Marco describes it as ‘poetry to pour’!
