Aromatic and delicately floral white produced in a working monastary and Italy's most northerly winery
A "Super Tuscan" that is a firm favourite with all of us at Appellation Nation
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!
Dark cool fruits with licquorice, herbs and spice are backed by assertive tannins and a vibrant acidity. Will defineitly sit happily in the cellar for a few years, but like many from the generous 2011 vintage, offers plenty of pleasure to the drinker now. (2011 very low, 2012 to follow).
Deliciously drinkable as soon as it hits the glass, a Montepulciano bursting with vibrant black cherry and red fruits with vanilla and spice undertones.
Made from very old vines that help this wine deliver lashings of dark fruit and spice with excellent weight, complexity and character.
An expressive nose invites you in to enjoy this favourite of the Piedmontese. Nice red fruit on the palate, with hints of blueberry. Soft and supple with minimal tannins and a nicely balanced acidity.
Opening aroma of leather and spice. Firm tannins with cherry and violet on the palate - unmistakably Nebbiolo. Decant for as long as possible.
Big and noble, with drying but fine tannins. Cherry and leather on the nose and palate with nice spice and wood integration and a hint of earth. Super value Barolo.
Vibrant red colour with alluring aromas of red fruits especially red cherry, fresh and dried herbs, spices and a touch of licquorice. Fresh, well blanced, persitent on the palatte. The red fruits carry through, with a touch of garrigue and spice on the finish. Classic Brunello.
Great personality and complexity with an intense ruby red color and a broad, persistent nose. Notes of red berries and sour cherry blend with delicate spice notes from oak. 24 months in barrel, a further 24 in bottle before release.
A blend of Nero d'Avola and Perricone. The latter adds structure and a hint of chocolate to the Nero d'Avola's typically rich and fruity palate. A cracking Sicilian red wine which packs a ton of flavour!
Pass the Cookies is a rich, golden sweet wine with fragrant notes of acacia, nuts, vanilla and honey. Delicious as an aperitif or with all manner of desserts.

An elegant, spicy Amarone with ripe flavours of sun-dried cherry, dates and fig paste, and a clean, mouthwatering acidity. Hints of smoke from the ageing in wood, whilst the ground spice details carry through to the finish. VGV.
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.
Bright, dark cherry in colour with lovely black fruits, overlaid with some spice and pepper from the Teroldigo grape. Grapes are dried on straw mats for 2 weeks prior to fermentation, leading to a richer than usual Valpol.
Flavours of wild cherries and red woodland fruits. Soft and balanced tannin, with wonderful food-friendly acidity, and the richness and texture coming from the remacerated Amarone pomace.
Quite simply an astonishing wine- rich and full, packed with a complexity of flavour that attacks the palate but never overwhelms. One of the best Chianti's available!
This wine makes you remember blueberry, blackcurrant, liquorice and sweet spicys. The taste is full of energy, powerful, the tannins clear and accurate. The wine has excellent balance and length, but good texture and mouthfeel. Excellent value for a Barolo Riserva.
A customer favourite, this "mini Amarone" is made using the appasimento process of drying the grapes producing an ultra smooth, silky style.
A blend of barrel-fermented Gargenega, to give texture and spice, and Pinot Bianco fermented in stainless steel to provide the crisp, floral flavours, this wine is crisp, dry and fresh, with ripe fruits to balance the refreshing acidity.
A delicate yet hugely complex red from Maremma, Southern Tuscany
A delicate yet hugely complex red from Maremma, Southern Tuscany, in Magnum size!
Stunning! Notes of stone fruits (peach and apricot), but there's a delicious complexity that comes with hints of pear, almond, sage and a twist of minerality. Cleansing acidity keeps the wine refreshing and moreish.
Le Salette have delivered a winner here with this youthful, approachable Amarone Classico. Not as dense and heavy as some, but with all the power and complexity you'd expect, this is certainly one of the most versatile Amarone's we have tasted.
This fantastic Puglian white packs a punch. Full of stone fruit flavours, delicate florality and zesty orange acidity. A cracker for under ten pounds!
A "mini Amarone" made by passing the Valpolicella wines over the skins and lees of Amarone taking on all the ripe, spiced fruit flavours.
Really good quality Prosecco from the famed Valdobbiadene. Classy with lovely soft bubbles, rich fruit and honey notes yet remaining dry, crisp and fresh!
At the sweeter end of the Brut scale, yet so delicate it appeals to all! Plenty of fresh fruit and white flowers with a creamy texture and a rich vein of acidity.
A tasty blend of Sangiovese and Merlot from Southern Italy. Bursting with fruit, it is a wine that's just crying out to be drunk now.
This complex wine, offering excellent depth of flavour, hails from the Bolgheri DOC, spiritual home of the Super Tuscans!
A great alternative to Champagne and different in style to Prosecco, Franciacorta is a wine that is unfairly overlooked. Great fruit and weight, soft and dry on the palate with flavours of apple, peach and brioche.
Gorgeous Piedmont red that strikes a perfect balance between bright fruit and rustic earthiness. Drinks beautifully alongside any game meats!
A rich, velvety Southern Italian red blending the rich blackcurrant flavours of Primitivo with the supple cherry fruits of Montepulciano, gorgeous.

An easy drinking, yummy red from Sicily; red cherries and complex fruit flavours with just a touch of warming spices, all balanced by a fresh acidity. Plate up a little antipasti and enjoy! NEW 2016 VINTAGE NOW ARRIVED.
This intriguing blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese proves the two grapes are a perfect match. The former brings a rounded and juicy plum and spice profile to the wine, whilst the latter's cherry notes brings perfectly counter-balanced acidity.
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.
