Description

A classic Amarone della Valpolicella, the Terre di San Zeno from Corteforte is a wonderfully decadent and sophisticated wine.  Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and the wine is then aged in steel for a further 24 – 36 months before ageing in large French oak and then smaller French oak barrels for 12 months in each.  The wine is then bottled and released following an additional 12 month period in bottle.  Although approachable when released, this tremendous Amarone will continue to develop in bottle for a good decade following release. 


Complex Kirsch and dark cherry fruits mingle with Liquorice and spice on the ethereal palate that is balanced and powerful. 


65% Corvina, Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 10% Molinara and 5% other native grapes

Sangiovese

The Vinvita Rubicone is a very easy drinking red showing typical Sangiovese character with heaps of pure, upfront fruit unhindered by any oak ageing. Ripe cherry and red fruits, with a touch of flowers and spice. Well-balanced, juicy and extremely quaffable.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

2021/22 Nostru Nerello Mascalese, Cortese, IGT Terre Siciliane

Nerello Mascalese

The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.
