  • 2019 Chianti Classico ‘San Jacopo’, Castello VicchiomaggioRed Wine

    2019 Chianti Classico ‘San Jacopo’, Castello Vicchiomaggio

    £1695

    The wines of Castello Vicchiomaggio truly show off the Sangiovese grape at its best. Vicchiomaggio is consistently classified amongst Italy’s top estates and winemaker John Matta has been named IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year four times in the last 14 years.

    The 2019 Chianti Classico ‘San Jacopo’ is named after an antique farmhouse located on the wine estate.   It is a lovely expression of Chianti, with red cherry and cranberry fruits, the palate has good substance and a lingering, rounded finish.

    The vineyards are located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region and sit at an altitude of 255 to 265 metres above sea level. The Chianti Classico area is characterised by a Mediterranean climate and the soil, which is called “Galestro”, is rich in clay and large stones. The soils in this vineyard are made up of a high proportion of heavy clay- approximately 30%- which is renowned for its cooling properties and water retention for the vine, as well as for producing bold wines from the Sangiovese grape. Planted at a density of 5,600 vines per hectare, the vines are pruned according to the Single Guyot method which ensures low yields of approximately 52 hectolitres per hectare. Particular attention is paid to the direction in which the vines are planted; they are all south-facing, ensuring maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day.

  • 2020 Mongrana, Querciabella

    2020 Mongrana, Querciabella

    £1795

    Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colours, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing, the wine takes its name – and its character – from that of the noble family of knights depicted by the Italian Renaissance poet Ludovico Ariosto in his epic masterpiece Orlando Furioso.

    The charm of Mongrana does not take long to reveal. Well-defined aromas of ripe fruit, morello cherry, blackberry and blueberry jump out of the glass, anticipating a complex bouquet of kirsch, ivy, and pine needles, enriched by a touch of liquorice.

    On the palate, it offers a juicy, fresh sip with soft tannins. The long finale is savoury, with a mineral note that persists in the mouth.

  • 2019 Rosso di Montalcino, PininoRed Wine

    2019 Rosso di Montalcino, Pinino

    £2400

    An elegant and harmonious expression of Sangiovese, with plenty of ripe raspberry and cherry fruit framing the full and velvety texture, through to a long, spicy finish.

    The Pinino estate vineyards are located in the north of Montalcino with the Canchi vineyard in the north-east, facing south and south-west respectively. The vineyards are embedded like a natural amphitheatre into the beautiful and famous hillside of Montosoli. This distinctive geographical location has become known as one of the best areas of the region for wine production. The Sangiovese grapes are grown at an altitude of 310 to 320 metre, where the lower temperatures allow the grapes to express their finesse. The soil is rich in galestro (a rocky, clay-schistous soil with a flaky texture and free draining properties), clay and tuff.

  • 2019 Chianti Classico Organic, QuerciabellaRed Wine

    2019 Chianti Classico Organic, Querciabella

    £2595

    Querciabella Chianti Classico has been the centrepiece of Querciabella’s winemaking operations since the winery’s debut. Consistently ranking at the highest levels of critical acclaim it’s a real delight for wine and food enthusiasts all over the world.

    A beautiful balancing act of crisp, inviting acidity, pure varietal fruit flavour and character, Querciabella Chianti Classico represents the pinnacle of high-altitude, perfectly exposed Sangiovese fruit.  Its complexity and consistency derive from sourcing the grapes from top sites across the Classico region.

    Each vineyard is cared for on a lot by lot basis to respect the essence of each site. The same focus and precision in the cellar, allow for natural winemaking with minimal intervention, that preserves the purity of the fruit. After about 14 months in fine-grained oak barrels, and regular racking, only the best lots make it to the final blend. Once bottled, the wine rests patiently for a few more months before release. This patient maturation adds a layer of softness and enhances the varietal fruit notes typical of quality Sangiovese.

    Sangiovese practically screams for anything with tomato sauce and the natural pairing with Tuscan regional food is, of course, Pappa al Pomodoro. A heartier option is to pair this full-bodied wine with a dish that can stand up to its great structure and complexity like Spaghetti Bolognese.

  • 2020 Rosso di Montalcino, SestiRed Wine

    2020 Rosso di Montalcino, Sesti

    £2750

    The Sesti estate is located in the heart of Tuscany, in the Castello Argiano, originally built in 1200. The castle is part of a chain of sight and defense castles, each in sight of the others, built along the Orcia river

For thirty years Giugi organised an opera festival in Tuscany, whilst refurbishing the hamlet of the Castello di Argiano and its 102 hectares.  Now primarily run by his daughter Elisa, the winery Sesti makes a world renowned Brunello but if you want the Sesti experience without waiting for the Brunello’s to mature then this Rosso is exceptional.

    Crafted using organic and biodynamic wine making principles, this 100% Sangiovese is a delicious expression of Rosso di Montalcino.  In the glass it opens with aromas of rosemary, red summer berries and dark chocolate that lead into palate of gorgeous bright red fruit, touches of oak and tobacco, with savoury notes of mushroom.
