The Italian Job
A case of our favourite Italian wines
Some of the wines have been reviewed by Johnny Ray from the Spectator, see Johnny's tasting notes below.
Rosade Furlane Bianco Venturin, 2018: "Charmingly easy-going. A blend of Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Friulano (aka Sauvignon Vert), Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and Muller-Thurgau from the Veneto, it’s deliciously aromatic, fresh, vibrant and slightly creamy on the finish. A perfect springtime wine, it’s ideal as a well-chilled aperitif." Jonathan Ray, Spectator Magazine
Volpi Terre Siciliane Grillo, 2019: A straw yellow colour, with fine and elegant aromas of grapefruit and citrus blossom. On the palate there is an abundence of cirtus fruit and a nice minerality.
Vermentino di Gallura, Vigne Surrau, 2019: "Another island wine made a few miles inland from swanky-dan Porto Cervo on the Costa Smerelda, Sardinia. Gallura is Sardinia’s only DOCG region and this is a peach, full of weighty ripe fruit, garrigue herbs, heady spice and a long, dry finish." Jonathan Ray, Spectator Magazine
Volpi Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, 2018: "The sister wine to the Grillo and likewise organic and vegan. Produced in Abruzzo, it’s a classic of its type, disarmingly succulent with plenty of rich, dark fruit, decent tannins and a fine savoury finish. Un-oaked, it’s a wine to enjoy in its youth, right here, right now." Jonathan Ray, Spectator Magazine
Castello Romitorio Morellino di Scansano, 2018: "A fine example of Tuscan Sangiovese (Morellino being the grape’s local name) from an estate owned by the celebrated neo-expressionist artist, Sandro Chia. Rich, dark and concentrated, it sees no oak and is as fresh as it is succulent." Jonathan Ray, Spectator Magazine
Rosso di Montepulciano, Gracciano della Seta, 2018: "Velvety, creamy, polished cherries and dried violets on the nose. The palate has crunchy cherry cranberry fruit, with smoky and balsamic notes and a touch of cacao. Straight from the bottle this impresses but after half an hour in the glass (if you can keep it that long!) more nuances and sweetness appear but the freshness and vivacity remains." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru
When I ordered this case through the 'Spectator' offer, The Grillo was substituted without explanation. I'd like to join your Club, but would you tell me your policy about substitutions please. Kind regards, Stephen Whitaker. Sherborne, Dorset.

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
