Northern Italy Portfolio Offer

The much lauded 2016 vintage in Northern Italy needs little introduction.

A perfect growing season, not too hot or too cold, with rain just at the right times, has produced a classic vintage packed with dense fruit, rich tannins and bright acidity. There is a crystalline purity to the wines, and small variations in vineyard microclimates are perfectly reflected in them They are also powerful and rich, and have superb ageing potential.

They are joined in this offer by more reds from 2018, a beautifully ripe and open vintage which can be enjoyed immediately.

This is a magical moment for Piedmont wines: the influx of money from higher prices has allowed growers to invest in their estates, so enlarged cuveries with new fermentation vessels and new casks of all sizes are increasingly the norm. The quality is improving by leaps and bounds, and we will see many more exciting wines here in the future.

La Sala

2017 Campo All'Albero Igt Toscana (LASA40217A)
Low yields in 2017 lend a particular intensity to this half Cabernet Sauvignon, half-Merlot blend. Aged for 24 months in barriques, this is a powerful, deep coloured and rich wine, with very elegant smooth ripe red fruit, a refreshing edge of blackcurrant leaf, spiced plum and warming tannins.

2012 Barolo Monprivato Ca' D'Morissio (MSCA40212A)
Not tasted. But I did try the 1997 not long ago, and it was still a baby: powerful, lean, amazingly concentrated and fine, an astonishing wine. Draw your own conclusions about the 2012...

Diego Conterno Vini

2019 Langhe Nascetta (COND06219A)
Nascetta is a local white variety almost extinct by the mid-nineties, but now undergoing something of a rebirth, with widespread planting. Tasting this it's easy to see why: the wine is vibrant and fresh, with chalky lime, peach, pineapple and lemon notes, has a clear mineral seam and lifts to a juicy citrus finish.
