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. Santa Vittoria. Poggio al Tempio 2013

    Elegant dark cherry and red berry fruit, cedar and tobacco with hints of truffle and leather, an unusually complex wine.  It just seems far better than it should be, if that makes any sense.

  10. Castell'in Villa. Chianti Classico 2012

    A powerful vintage that leans more to deep, dried fruit, smoke and spice than the floral elements found in cooler vintages.  In many ways this has a Brunello like structure and warmth.
