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. 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.

  5. Broccatelli Galli. Montefalco Rosso 2013

    A wine that is comfortable in itself and makes no effort to masquerade the dark, earthy patina of Sagrantino freshened with the black cherry and damson of Sangiovese.

  6. Broccatelli Galli. Trebbiano Spoletino 2015

    Certainly no ordinary Trebbiano, peach, lime and apricot stone on the nose, rosemary and sage.  Tight, intense fruit, apple, mineral, grippy peach flavours. Quite unique, there is some real structure and depth and brightness of fruit.

  7. Antigniano. Sagrantino 'Preda di Falco' 2005

    Elegant, jam, damson, ketchup and spice. Drying tannins, approachable but not easy, needs a good 8 hours in an open decanter. Wine for cellaring.
