Italian Wines

We have imported wines from Italy for over 20 years now and we find the wines ever more unfathomable, perhaps I am taking it too seriously for this is a country full of life, literally when considering the line of volcanic activity running up its spine, and the wines are born out of a love of food and friendship.

The unique line up of wines in every region is the result of history, it is not part of some big plan.
Italy was only unified in 1870 and it is a story of independent city states rather than of a nation. This independence ensured the diversity of culture, food and wine and local traditions have been proudly defended.
Again, the more I read the less I know.

  1. Villa Giada. Moscato d'Asti 'Andrea' 2014 half bottle

    The Audrey Hepburn of sweet wines, fragile nuanced fruit with the finest of spiced orange and candied lemon intertwined through the freshest and grapiest of all wines.

  2. Broccatelli Galli. Sangiovese 2015

    Imagine crushing a handful of raspberries, black cherries and wild strawberries, that is what is smells like, the stalk and earth, real.  The taste is equally generous and genuine, ripe cherry, a touch of basil and mint attractively rustic, wonderfully freshing.

  9. Valpanera. Bianco 'Tre Uve' 2013

    Nothing not to like about this wine, sauvignon aromas leading to pink grapefruit, basil and greengage flavours, perhaps a touch of melon.  Soft and fresh, a touch of minerality everything is just right, a really lovely vintage.

  10. Rauscedo. Friulano 2015

    A touch of wax adding complexity to lime and banana flavours.  A very good Friulano, far better than the price suggests, lovely and mineral on the finish.
