    Chardonnay here is left on the vine as long as possible to achieve maximum ripeness, as the vineyard has a cooling influence from the (Bora) wind. White stone fruits, melon with a hint of creaminess – this has a rich feel but is supported by the minerality that comes through mid palate, bringing through its purity and finesse.

  • 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 San Marcellino is made from the best grapes harvested from the excellent San Marcellino vineyard that surrounds the church of the same name. The 2013 is 93% Sangiovese with 7% of Pugnitello in the blend. It is released after spending two years in barriques and might be the best vintage we have ever tasted here. Bright cherry and forest fruit is intertwined with pain d’epice and ginger spice. The cascading acid is harmonious and bright, allowing the purity of fruit to shine through. The finish is long and mineral. One to enjoy over the next 10-15 years.

  • 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.

    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).

    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 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.

  • 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 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.
