Baglio Gibellina U...Passimiento
"Made from a blend of Nero D'Avola and Frappato grape varieties from old vines that at between 300 and 600m above sea level. The palate is full-bodied and warming with a lovely balance of acidity and smooth grain tannins."
Doppio Passo Primitivo
"This Primotivo from Doppio Passo is classic primotivo through and through offering a bold and powerful presence in aroma and taste. Aromas of blackberries, plums and chocolate. On the palate it is rich with cherry and blackberry fruit and a touch of vanilla amongst some oak notes. Bold, smooth and soft (perfect)."
Brunilde di Menzione Brindisi Riserva Rosso
"This wine is characterised by a typical bouquet of cherries and dates, combined with vanilla and licorice notes. A touch of delicate tannins, thanks to the maturation in barriques for 10 months, makes this wine unique."
Montigoli Valpolicella Ripasso Classico
"This bottle is packed with notes of bright cherry fruit and a hint of oak. The nose is intense with aromas of plums and bramble fruit. The palalte is complex as you would expect with ripe dark fruits a good mix of spice and a good amount of supple tannins."
Casa Defra Rosso Riserva Colli Berici
"This is an interesting blend of 50% Merlot and 50% field blend (what ever they feel would add to the wine). A joint venture between two wine making families Cielo from Veneto and Colli Berici. The wine has a medium intensity, with fragrant red and dark fruits, vanilla notes and spicy, satisfying finish. Aged in large oak vats for 18 months."
Il Cascinone Crocera Barbera d'Asti Superiore
"Spicy dark chocolate, black cherry and toasted spice on the nose. A rich palate with plum and sour cherry, dark chocolate and juicy acidity on the finish."
