    Classic sangiovese aromas of redcurrant and fresh morello cherry with warm spice and minerality running through, all supported by a silky texture. Fleshy on the mid palate, it finishes with an uplifting freshness. Plenty of structure here - ripe acidity balances out the tannins – a rosso that can be enjoyed for 5+ years.

    From a parcel of old vine, pre-phylloxera Barbera. Deep purple in colour, plums, game, smoke and ripe blackberries leap from the glass. Intense and complex, silky dark fruit fills the palate cut through by mouthwatering acidity. The wine is bursting with energy and concentration, but its the texture that you`re left dreaming about. Barbera at its absolute best.

  • Wine

    Beautifully pure and translucent Ravera nose; ripe redcurrants, cherries, mint and anise with wonderful purity. Sweet red fruit leads the attack, well supported by powerful yet elegant, powdery tannins and acidity that leaves a lingering freshness. Impressively well knit but will benefit from 3+ years further bottle ageing.

  • Wine

    Intensely perfumed, with mulberry, dark cherry, earthy tones. As it opens, more floral aromas and savoury notes emerge, which carry through to the palate. Tannins are polished and sleek, and there is a definite feel of Burgundy about this wine. Don`t be deceived by its easy going structure or medium body - this is a wine that needs to be put away for 5+ years

  • An elegant bouquet of cherry, mint, orange peel and sweet spices. The Fausoni has understated style. Voluptuous red fruit on the attack, with mid palate depth and restrained structure.The challenge with this vineyard is taming the tannins but in 2016, they are big but velvety, sophisticated and controlled. Dark red fruit lingers for an age.

  • Deeply expressive Barbaresco with a powerful, dense nose - black cherry, violets, incense and tobacco are there in abundance. Complex but restrainted on the palate, striking a nice balance between rich fruit, spice and round, solid tannins. The Montestefano is regal, and demonstrates an incredible balance between complexity and finesse.

    This is the main wine of the estate and offers a true expression of the Roccapesta terroir - several prime sites are blended to create the wine. Aged in 500-600l french oak but only a small percentage is new, to mellow tannins rather than mark the wine too much.The 2016 spent 6 months longer in barrel (18 months total), and 6 months in bottle . The result is a perfumed nose of ripe red cherries, blackberries and red licorice, with notes of chocolate and anise. Tannins are supple and harmonious with the bright acidity which leads to a fresh, crunchy raspberry finish.

  • Mosconi is more powerful and needs time to come together. That said, it has great energy throughout the palate with a core of acidity lifting the structure. Deeper, darker aromas of black cherry, cacao and licorice spice. The tannins are solid and powerful but well balanced by the rich fruit character the vintage brings. Impressive overall balance for such a strong full bodied, ageworthy wine.

    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.

  • Wine

    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.

    Limited production of select grapes, early harvest and fermentation in low temperature autoclaves to heighten delicacy and flavour.

  • 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.

    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.

    This spends about a year in large Slavonian barrels (not new) and is full of rounded yet structured fruit. The pre-phylloxera version shares the same grape but there the similarities stop and it’s quite a different animal. The vines are planted high up (520 metres above sea level) in Berri, near La Morra on sandy chalky soil where there is excellent exposure. Yields are low and the wine is very concentrated but the acid is concentrated too and there is great freshness and precision running through the wine. Very limited but a genuinely exciting wines.

    A refreshing, delicate Nebbiolo featuring flavous such as strawberries and dried rose petals with a nice clove, spicy hint driven by Vespolina grape. This is is approachable earlier than the Gattinara, which always needs a year or two longer in bottle, and is drinking already.

    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.
