  • 2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San GuidoRed Wine

    2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido


    Sassicaia’s younger brother Guidalberto consistently offers incredible value from the Tenuta San Guido stable.   Nicolo Incisa della Rocchetta, Tenuta San Guido’s owner, explains how Guidalberto came into being: “first of all, [there was] the desire to see what we could accomplish with Merlot, a grape that we had never used before; second, the desire to offer the consumer a wine which could be appreciated at a younger age compared to our veteran Sassicaia”.

    The 2020 Guidalberto has an increased percentage of Merlot (60%) that brings added freshness to a wine that is in great shape for one so young. This the 21st vintage of Guidalberto has a profound nose that offers ripe, fragrant fruit and sweet spice. Plum, strawberry, blackcurrant and forest floor reveal the interplay of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which constitute equal parts of the blend this year. The palate is juicy and supple, with admirable freshness given the warm vintage, framed by fine tannins. Drink 2022-2030.

  • 2012 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Poggio Sant’ Enrico, CarpinetoRed Wine

    2012 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Poggio Sant’ Enrico, Carpineto


    Bold and intense, this mature wine shows pronounced black fruit aromas, combined with hints of walnut, black pepper spice and vanilla. With great intensity of colour and flavour, the fine integrated tannins underpin the complex palate and lead to a long and powerful finish.

    This wine is produced from 100% Sangiovese fruit from the 1.33 hectare Poggio di Sant’Enrico Piccolo vineyard and the 3.65 hectare Poggio Sant’Enrico Grande vineyards. These are single vineyards situated at between 300 and 350 metres in elevation on Carpineto’s Chianciano Estate in Montepulciano, with southern exposures on rolling hillsides. The Piccolo vineyard was planted in 1978 and the Grande vineyard was planted in 1995.

  • 2018 Brunello di Montalcino, SestiRed Wine

    2018 Brunello di Montalcino, Sesti


    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

    Giugi Sesti grew up in Venice and much of his life has been dedicated to the study of astronomy, on which subject he is a published author. 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 world renowned Brunello and seriously good Rosso di Montalcino.

    This 2018 Brunello is jaw-droppingly delicious right now, savoury, well structured, rich, full-bodied with blackberry, herbaceous and spicy notes on the nose and the palate.

  • 1998 Galatrona, PetroloRed Wine

    1998 Galatrona, Petrolo


    Galatrona is a Merlot cru from the ten-hectare vineyard Galatrona planted in during the 1990s with low vigour Bordeaux clones. This is Petrolo’s flagship wine, it is extremely aromatic and has great structure.

    This 1998 has aromas of dark berry compote and oaky vanillin, these are brightened by suave floral and spice cake notes. The palate is broad and fleshy but energetic, featuring vibrant blackberry and bitter red cherry flavours that gain weight in the glass. Powerful but very well balanced, with a strong finishing tannic kick and strong hints of underbrush and rosemary.

  • 1991 Occhio di Pernice, Avignonesi, 375ml Wine Republic Heros Dessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine, Red Wine

    1991 Occhio di Pernice, Avignonesi, 375ml


    The Occhio di Pernice is made from Sangiovese grapes, locally known as Prugnolo Gentile.   It undergoes the same process as the Vin Santo, resulting in a wonderful array of liquid caramel, candied berry fruits and plum marmalade.

    The winemaking process is fascinating and starts with the grapes being carefully placed in small wooden boxes.  They are then laid out on straw mats to dry and only pressed the following spring. The winemaker receives only small amounts of juice, but it is full of extracts and with a very high density (Oechsle).  The grape must is then sealed for 10 years in used wooden barrels called Caratelli where it vinifies and matures in them without the barrels ever being opened. The Occhio di Pernice Vin Santo then matures in the bottle for a further six months before release.

    The name Occhio di Pernice means “eye of the partridge” in German and is derived from the amber colour of the grapes as they ripen.

  • 1993 Vin Santo, Avignonesi, 375mlDessert Wine

    1993 Vin Santo, Avignonesi, 375ml


    No one does Vin Santo like Avignonesi!  Crafted from only the best Trebbiano and Malvasia, the Vin Santo is dried for several months on reed mats and aged for a decade in caratelli, small 50-litre oak barrels, owing much of its character to the madre, a century-old yeast.

    The 1993 Vin Santo has a glowing brownish amber colour in the glass with an inebriating nose of fig jam, roasted apricots, smoke, and tar, a sumptuous, viscous palate of dates, figs, and dried apricots. A refreshing, invigorating acidity which maintains the balance.   Enjoyment phase: now until 2033
