  • From the south facing site, the soils here are more clay based giving structure and weight to the wines, which normally have slightly more power and richness than Ovello. This is more forward and less tightly wound than normal at this stage. Rich in red berry fruit, blackberries and black cherries, with warm spice and balsamic notes. Silky and ethereal on the palate, well balanced with a defined, linear structure. Although showing well already, this will continue to age gracefully.

  • The Ovello vineyard, which surrounds the estate is one of the greatest cru in Barbaresco. Many of the vines are 70+ years old and it consistently produces one of the best and age worthy wines in the region. This flagship wine shows the pure elegance that Nebbiolo can achieve. The 2014 could be renamed ‘Pinot Nebbiolo’ – and those who enjoy Pinot Noir will undoubtedly get a lot of pleasure from this. The nose has dominant floral notes with a bouquet that expresses a complex vertical structure. Tense and racy on the palate with enough depth of fruit to balance. The finish is long and mineral.

    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.

    This has recently been voted as one of the Best 50 Italian wines and it’s not hard to see why. Vinified in large wooden vats and aged for 24 months in botti, this has power, weight and elegance. The nose is complex with red berries and star anise opening up into figs, bay leaves and underbrush. The power comes through on the palate but it maintains a sense of poise. This will age for decades - a super Tuscan without the hefty price tag.

    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.

    I was blown away by the quality of the riserva in 2016. The best barrels of Roccapesta are selected then matured for an additional 6 months in wood and 6 months in bottle. This has a darker fruit profile, and more linear structure, with tremendous energy in the mid palate. The silkiest fruit swathed tannins meld effortlessly into a long, taut mineral finish. An impressive amount of skill is required to achieve such a harmonious and complex wine in such a hot area. This wine has a very bright future. Available from October 19

  • Elena Fucci only produce one wine, all of which comes from their 6ha in the Titolo vineyard - the best vineyard in the Vulture region with its vines situated near the top of the volcano, Mt Vulture, at high altitudes (600m). The winemaking is traditional and the wine is aged for 12 months in small barrels and larger oak casks. Stylistically though this is relatively modern with plenty of dark and rich fruit balanced with hints of savoury herbs.

  • 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.

    Layered in the glass, with aromas of peach, ripe pear and white flowers. The complexity and intrigue keeps coming as it opens in the glass. Tropical notes continue on the palate, which has nice weight but is well controlled. Beautifully crafted and a textbook example of how good Friulano can be. Pairs well with a variety of different foods, even bitter ones (chicory, radicchio).

  • 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).

  • A selection of the best barrels, the Selezione has ripe, yet delicate tropical aromas, with a hint of butter, white flowers, caramel and a developing nuttiness. Succulent acidity and defined minerality mid-end palate keeps the rich fruit reigned in. Bold yet precise flavours and still very fresh.

  • 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.

  • The estate’s flagship red (old vine Merlot) is fermented and macerated for a long time in open oak vats. It then spends two years in new barrels, and after bottling spends at least 18 months in bottle before being released. Generous, jammy fruit exudes from this ethereal, medium bodied wine. Layers of grilled herbs, smoked paprika and minerality are wrapped up with melting, fine, sweet tannins. It is vibrant yet graceful and will age for many years to come.

    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.

    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.
