2019 Italy Portfolio Offer

Last year we stopped ogling and took the plunge: seven Piedmontese growers were added to the portfolio.

The synergy with our existing collection of Burgundian and German estates is clear: single varietals, made by small producers from specified vineyards.

But really it’s what’s in the bottle: a new generation of growers in the Langhe has taken over who have combined tradition with an understanding of modern winemaking methods. In doing so they have shed their reputation for anodyne whites and cruel, tannic reds in favour of balanced fine wines with scented fruit and smooth elegance. It is an exciting time.

2014 Barolo Monforte D'Alba (COND30214A)

Bruna Grimaldi

2014 Barolo Badarina Serralunga D'Alba (GRIM38214A)
Two hectares of Badarina high up in Serralunga d'Alba provide the estate's flagship wines. In 2014 no reserva was made, and the grapes all went into the 'regular' bottling, giving this unusual concentration. There is an ethereal scent of rose petals, red and black fruit tinged with fresh herbs and licorice, smooth fine tannins and a long salty mineral finish.

La Sala

2015 Chianti Classico (LASA30215A)
It is made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, which adds a round, soft note unexpected in a wine like this. It is packed with red fruit, spice, soft ripe tannins and a fresh finish. Perfect with heartier dishes and the usual fava beans.
6 Bottle - 75cl £57.00
In Bond
Equivalent bottle price inc. VAT: £14.08

2015 Chianti Classico Riserva (LASA36215A)
That bit more complex than the regular Chianti. The fruit is denser, and there are dried fruit and spice notes with a hint of balsamic, along with fine smooth tannins leading to a rich and satisfying finish.
6 Bottle - 75cl £102.00
In Bond
Equivalent bottle price inc. VAT: £23.08
