Chianti is one of Italy’s great classic reds, while Riserva denotes a superior wine with ageing. This Gold medal 2018 is from a family estate we've worked with for 30 years. From Tuscany's highly regarded Rufina area, this is long, complex and silky.
Valpolicella is one of Italy’s best known reds, loved for its vibrant red fruit. This one from Cantina Negrar, an award-winning cellar not far from Verona, has been made in the ‘Ripasso’ style of the famous Amarones, where partially dried grapes add incredible richness and complexity. It’s a Superiore, so has been aged for a minimum of 1 year in oak. From a top vintage, the wine has rich cherry flavour, deep mocha notes and Valpolicella's attractive zip of freshness … it’s stunning!
Amarone is the northern Italian classic red wine that commands lifelong allegiances and huge prices. Papaverone is made in the same painstaking way, using southern Italian grapes. The result is a wine every bit as rich, but much juicier and riper.
A “supremely sumptuous and aristocratic symphony” – that’s how winemaker Sofia Barbanera describes this intricately complex, layered ‘Super Italian’. It’s made with premium fruit from Puglia, Sicily and Tuscany, chosen especially to produce a beautifully counterbalanced wine. Hence its name – ContraPosto (‘contrapposto’ is Italian for counterpoise) – a delicious balancing act of regional styles.
