  • 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”

  • I Ciacca “Nostalgia” Maturano White from Lazio

    I Ciacca “Nostalgia” Maturano

    Once in a while a wine insists you must buy it, here’s one. Rich, fat, mouth-filling, complex, creamy and the most beautiful colour you’ll ever see on a white wine. A truly top class Italian white.

    Ever heard of the “Maturano” grape variety? Nor I.

    The Di Ciacca family, a third-generation Scots-Italian clan, has been working to bring this indigenous, organically-grown grape variety back to life on the family’s estate in Picinisco, in Lazio.

    Italian consultant Alberto Antonini (named as one of the world’s top 5 winemakers by his peers) is guiding Di Ciacca’s Maturano mission.

  • Brunelli Amarone Classico

    Luigi Brunelli’s Amarone Classico is a perfect example of this wine as defined by Cassiodorus: “drinkable purple of incredible smoothness”. Multiple Gold-medal winner, and for me, the best Amarone I tasted out of over 100 at the Vinitaly Trade Wine Fair in Verona.

  • 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 nearly £30 a bottle.

  • Barolo La Fusina

    Another top find from a hunting mission at Vinitaly; my favourite Barolo from over 120 tasted. This single vineyard beauty from the Abbona family is, like all Barolos, made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, the king of Piedmont reds! Aged for 30 mnonths in french oak barrels and then a further 8 months in bottle before release. 2016 is one ot the top vintages of the past decade.

  • Brunelli Amarone Classico Riserva “Campo del Titari”

    Majestic and exuberant, this superb Amarone Riserva is simply outstanding; a combination of grace and aggressive power. Campo del Titari is a nectar made only in the very best vintages and in limited quantities (3000 bottles), it is a wine for the bold: those who are capable of recognizing the strong emotions that inspired it. Oh, and by the way, a natural 17% alc, so not for the faint-hearted.
