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. Paolo Petrilli. Nero di Troia 'Il Guerro' 2010

    Pure, deep damson fruit, enveloping tannins with engaging spice, blueberry and floral nuances.  Majestic and powerful wine with the capacity to age for many years, one of the great full-bodied Puglian red wines.

  2. Stefano Mancinelli. Verdicchio Passito 'Stell' 2013 (50cl)

    This is like the trailer for a great Tawny port, explosive nut, date, sweet, fat honeyed fruit, (pure Christmas cake in a glass), but it is unfortified, pure and natural, none of the alcohol burn, just spectacular.

  3. Sant'Agnese. Cabernet Sauvignon 'I Fiori Blu' 2008

    Cassis and flattering vanilla with silky espresso and aged balsamic running through what is a remarkably fresh and elegant wine.  Vibrant blackcurrant and mineral, immediate and remarkable.
