We have certainly bolstered our range of Italian wineries this week with no fewer than 4 new estates joining our portfolio.
Masseria Altemura are first up with their Negroamaro and Rosato wines from Salento. The Rosato is a fabulous rose wine with real depth of character. The wines of Masseria Altemura reflect the family’s dedication to expressing the utmost respect for the traditions of a given territory as well as the family’s deep-rooted production philosophy, which has always been geared towards promoting and giving new life to indigenous grape varieties. Consequently in the Salento area, an extraordinary zone which yields wines of both great flavor and charm
The dessert wine Recioto di Gambellara by Podere il Giangio features a bright golden colour with huge flavours of rich, ripe, zesty lemons. Lip-smackingly tasty.
Three wines from Torre Solaria include Insolia, Nero d’Avola and stunning Primitivo. At a little of £7.00 each these are superb wines to be enjoyed this summer.
From Sicily we can heartedly recommend the Feudo Principi di Butera Syrah with its big appealing notes of cherries, red fruit and sweet spices. Located in the heart of Sicily (The California of Italy), and is the most ambitious investment ever undertaken by the Zonin family: 320 hectares of splendidly exposed land, of which 180 hectares are planted with vines, situated entirely in the Riesi DOC production zone. The Zonin family has owned the estate since 1997.
A whole range of styles and tastes to keep the Italian flair flying high.Share and Enjoy:
