A Great Italian Collection featuring some of our absolute favourites. La Dolce Vitae!
1 x SELLA & MOSCA TANCA FARRÀ ALGHERO, 2016
Sella & Mosca are the most prominent producer on Sardinia, being instrumental in establishing the reputation for quality and potential for even greater things to come of wines from this dramatically beautiful Italian island. The wine has an attractive and complex mix or cherry, blackberry, anise and tobacco with a supple and long palate.
1 x CASTELLO COLLEMASSARI "POGGIO LOMBRONE", RISERVA, 2016 Organic
This is a complex and full-bodied wine with black cherry, prunes and mint. The aroma develops with time to reveal candied fruit and floral notes. Velvety, dense tannins balance well with the flavours.
1 x TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE ROSSO ETNA, 2019 Organic
A mouthwatering and well-knit red, with a pure chime of wild cherry and raspberry fruit. Light, taut tannins provide fine definition, framing the fruit flavors, accents of dried thyme and ground white pepper and minerally hints of iron and smoke that push through on the chewy finish. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Drink now through 2026. 11,000 cases made, 3,300 cases imported. — AN Score: 91
1 x FRANCESCO RINALDI ET FIGLI BARBERA D'ALBA, 2019
Barolo producers need to produce reds that can be enjoyed young while their top wines are maturing and that tends to be Barbera and Dolcetto. Inevitably the vineyards are at the fringes of their finest spots, such as here where the vines grow on the flatter parts of the famous Cannubl hill cru and also in the renowned La Morra commune.
1 x BEGALI LORENZO LA CENGIA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE RIPASSO, 2019
From the Valpolicella sub-zone of Cengia, comes this feted Classico Superiore Ripasso. Corvina and Rondinella grapes are left on the skins of the grapes used after the production of Amarone to give added texture and alcohol. Cherry, blackberries and spice dominate a palate with integrated tannins.

1 x FEUDUCCIO "URSONIA" MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZO, 2013
The wine has a deep, ruby red colour, a bouquet of dark ripe cherries, raisins, caramel, tobacco, liquorice, and raspberry. On the palate, the wine is smooth, dry and deliciously fruity. Very harmonic and complex.
