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. 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.

  5. Serena Palazzolo e Figli. Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    A fresh and mineral style, far more in common with the Loire than with a typical Friuli Sauvignon.
