Rizzardi’s Amarone Classico 3CRU is made from hand-picked grapes from the three vineyards of Calcarole, Pojega & Rovereti. After the traditional grape drying period the wine undergoes a long fermentation followed by three years maturation in oak.
Aromatic with ripe dark berried fruit alongside sweet spice, a ripe, rich style. Powerful, rich and rounded with abundant, ripe, dark berried fruit supported by fine oak. This is a terrific example of Amarone, being well structured yet maintaining good freshness. To enjoy at it’s best we’d advise that you decant this at least an hour before serving.
47% Corvina, 21% Rondinella, 19% Corvinone, 10% Barbera 3% Sangiovese

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac
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!

2020 ‘O Font’ Les Deux Cols, Vin de France
Les Deux Cols is a joint venture between Ireland's leading Rhone importer, Simon Tyrell and Charles Derain, one time Sommelier to Alain Ducasse at Le Louis XV in Paris. This Grenache Noir dominated blend is whole bunch and foot trodden, natural yeast fermented in concrete tanks and then matured in a mixture of old barriques and larger demi-muid barrels. Pale in the glass, this is fresh and easy with red fruits and a hint of spice. Hand harvesting takes place at least a week earlier than the neighbouring properties allowing for a fresher style, and all vineyards are either organic or in conversion with some biodynamic practices in use.
