  • Felline Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one is distinctive due to the red soil of the vineyards. Aged for six months in French oak.

  • Brunelli Ripasso “Pa’Riondo”

    The Ripasso technique; After the Amarone has finished fermenting its already air-dried and concentrated grapes, the skins are removed from the juice and added to another Valpolicella and these yeast-rich grape skins and sugars get going again in the new wine. (They “re-pass” the skins “Ripasso”)

    This results in the wine becoming full-bodied, with a great concentration of colour and perfume. Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 10%.

  • Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one  is distinctive due to the calcareous white soil of the vineyards. Aged for nine months in French oak.

  • “Zinfandel” Primitivo di Manduria from Felline

    With the huge success of Fellone, I decided that Primitivo needed a closer inspection, so here’s one of four new ones, all from Felline down in the south of Italy.This one is a slight variation, being styled “Zinfandel Californiano”. That’s what they call it over there but is a strain of Primitivo all the same. Terroir is Mandurian black soil and the 15% wine was aged for six months in French and American oak.

  • Domaine de la Pigeade Muscat de Beaumes de Venise

    The southern Rhone is probably best known for its reds such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas …..and Vacqueyras. But they also make one of the best dessert wines around and here’s a pretty smart one! Deliciously grapey, fleshy, fragrant Muscat grapes have the fermentation stopped by the addition of alcohol leaving the wine naturally sweet.  The Domaine recommends it be drunk very cold not only as a dessert wine with, say, chocolate fondant but also with blue cheese or even with foie gras  to start with.
