Aromatic and delicately floral white produced in a working monastary and Italy's most northerly winery
A textbook Barbaresco with beautiful texture and tannic structure. On the palate it is well balanced with a nice sweetness, elegance, and a long finish.
Clay-rich soils and an inland Mediterranean climate contribute to the richly layered character of this wine. Medium bodied and bursting with red fruit and savoury spices.
Typical varietal aromas of red fruits and violets with a touch of thyme and sage. Fragrant and smooth with a long, delicate finish. Great served slightly chilled!

A beautifully elegant and drinkable expression of Nebbiolo, lighter than Barolo but beautifully complex with redfruit, spice and leather throughout.

Spoil yourself with this small bottle of delicious Amarone from Antonio Fattori.
Although the entry level PG from Fattori, the grapes are still grown on volcanic soils which limit the yields, giving a fresh wine with texture and lovely notes of apples and pears. Very good value for proper PG.
From garganega grape dried for 6 months to concentrate the flavours and sugars. Decadently sweet, but fresh and tasty. Elegant, with citrus and apricot flavours. Pair with desserts and ripe cheeses.

A rich, unctuous wine, the 2013 Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg offers striking depth and nuance, with an extra kick of oiliness from the beautifully ripe fruit. Succulent peach and apricot notes open up first, followed by an expressive melange of dried flowers, mint, herbs and candied lemon peel. The 2013 is rich, distinctive and capable of aging nicely for another decade, perhaps longer.
Brilliant straw yellow colour. This Sauvignon is enticingly exotic in the glass, with multilayered fruit of mango, papaya, lime and red grapefruit, and herbal aromas reminiscent of lemon grass, lemon balm, mint and green tea. It also reveals mineral notes of flint combined with a hint of elderberry syrup. On the palate, the wine offers a fascinating interplay of juicy fruit aromas and delicate minerality creating a harmonious opulence with a long and impressive finish.
