  • 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.

  • Brunelli Campo del Maestro “9 Grapes Appassimento”

    This “cru” is dedicated the grape Master, who managed this vineyard in the past and who dared to suggest an Amarone could be improved by a non-local variety. So 8 grapes became 9 grapes and the wine was declassified. “I can’t believe it’s not Amarone”

  • Domaine de la Pigeade Vacqueyras Red

    The southern Rhone allows the best of its different terroirs their own Appellations  such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas …..and Vacqueyras. This red blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre has spent nine months in oak barrels and is a powerful example of the best of the area. Rich, silky and complex red wine with good tannins.  Great with a rich foods.

  • 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.

  • Dunico 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 sandy soil of the vineyards. Aged for over nine months in French oak it’s a whopping 16% alc but despite that, it’s the most complex of the range, maybe that’s what you expect for £20 a bottle.
