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.

  2. Costanzo. Mofete Bianco 2015

    Costanzo Mofete Bianco
    Etna Bianco DOC

    Lemon, camomile, spearmint and old rose, the aromas open up beautifully over a few hours from a lemon focus into an intriguing floral and herb infused offering.  Wild honey, greengage, peach stone and hay, a taut, mineral wine, bone dry with a twist of bitter lemon on the finish.  Pure and intense, a very fine wine.

  5. COS. Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2011

    A style of wine I love, yet find tortuous to duplicate into words, probably because of the subtle weave of flavours from hedgerow berry to rosehip and earl grey tea, baked clay and wild herb. No run of the mill, dull as ditchwater 'blockbuster Nero d'Avola' something altogether more enjoyable.

    Divine pale lemon to gold with fresh lime, peach and white flower aromas.  A wine that combines freshness with rich complexity.  No oak just absolute purity, a truly remarkable wine.

  7. Costanzo. Nero di Sei 2012

    Notes of coffee, spice, red berries and coco. A wine that does not stray far from its core, a fine tannic structure controlled and balanced.
