The owner of this Estate has half a dozen Southern Italian wineries, each one focusses on a fabulous region and each one is focussed on making approachable, drinkable and pleasing wines. This is one of the better estates.

Bold flavours, ripe nose, currants, soft palate with good flesh, savoury finish and positively gluggable. This is the ultimate BBQ wine. Drink in at your next BBQ.

Montepulciano – Deep cooler, great aromatics and almost inky mouthfeel. These wines are often spicy, savoury and earthy. They have a good ability to age if treated with respect.

Abruzzo – Mountainous region on the Adriatic with strong Roman and Etruscan influences. Mainly known for Montepulciano and Trebbiano, most of which is processed at local co-ops.

Central Italy – When most people think of Central Italy they think of Tuscany. Not surprisingly because Chianti is an ocean of vineyards within the winegrowing region of Central Tuscany. Chianti produces more than 750000 hectolitres of wine each year. Tuscany’s wine history starts somewhere in the 8th-5th Century BCE when it was part of Etruria. Vernaccia from San Gimignano and reds from Montepulciano were known and loved before the Renaissance. The Tuscany we know now started in 19th Century with Chianti gaining the ascendancy. Brunello di Montalcino debuted in 1888 and the Super Tuscans took shape in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Beyond Tuscany there are the magically places of Emilia Romagna, Marche, Abruzzo and Umbria. Each place has its own history and personality that really deserve a night of their own. Better still, a few nights in situ.
