  • Fellone Primitivo di Puglia – sadly all gone. New 2017 vintage is a few months away, I’m afraid!

    Maybe one for sipping into the early hours after all your virtual guests have switched-off……

    If you thought Anarkos was good, then here’s his big, big brother! Simply put, this red wine is delicious and if ever you doubted you would spend over £20 a bottle on a red wine from southern Italy, then doubt no more.

    Drink now to end 2022.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay “Cumulo Nimbus” Minervois

    A blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache which really showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced.

  • 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”

  • Miguel Merino Rioja Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz

    Miguel explains how they are able to produce a wine from 100% of his lesser-used varietal. “Mazuelo is a fertile, vigorous plant which requires a long-cycle to reach complete ripening. It is also sensitive to many diseases. All these explains why Mazuelo is more adequate to the Mediterranean latitudes than to an Atlantic influenced land as Rioja Alta.
    Only the extraordinary characteristics of our Quinta Cruz vineyard allow us to make this wine in our town.”

  • Miguel Merino Rioja Reserva Vitola

    Differs from Miguel’s Reserva  in that it’s released slightly earlier, so a little less barrel age. No less stunning!

  • 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.
