Clementina Cossetti is the fourth-generation winemaker in the heart of Asti, where her family has been farming for well over a century. It was in 1891 that Giovanni Cossetti first built a winery, and his son Clemente began achieving wider recognition for their wines in the early years of the twentieth century. Within the current vineyards where vines are on average 30-years-old, the yields are kept low and historically Barbera has performed exceptionally.
Slightly pale ruby red colour, intense and fruity on the nose with floral and underbrush sensations. Enveloping, fresh, dry and slightly tannic, with a bitterish aftertaste and lingering finish with floral notes.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac
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!

2015 amarone della valpolicella ‘terre san zeno’, corteforte
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.

2014 chateau saint-pierre, 4ieme cru classe st.julien
The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.
