Description

Brio is made from Sangiovese grapes grown in the estate vineyards on the gently sloping hills of Scansano, fully expressing the freshness of this grape variety. The combination of altitude, south-westerly exposure, and rich volcanic soils in Scansano create one of Italy’s most unique microclimates.  Dense ruby red in colour with fragrant floral aromas, notes of red berries and cherries, and a layer of aromatic herbs.  The medium bodied palate is refined and balanced, with well integrated savouriness and soft tannins carrying through to the long and fruity finish.


Castello Romitorio is situated in a wild part of Montalcino with a microclimate of less sunny slopes and cooler average temperatures than the rest of the region.  The vineyards circle the Castle, on slopes which run parallel to the slopes of Montalcino.

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.

Gamay Noir Canaille.JPG

2021 Gamay ‘Canaille’, Domaine Roussely

Gamay

Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes improve immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces.The Cellar is underground, dug into a tuffeau tunnel underneath the vines, and have been used for vinification of wine for over 250 years. New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking  place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest.  Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.
