Spanish and Italian Mixed Case
A cracking combination from Spain and Italy, 12 bottles of absolute joy for you to get involved in. We lean towards the whites with this one but when the sun is out it makes sense, there are 8 whites and 4 reds with some extremely interesting and lesser know grapes included here.
We’ve limited stock for this one so be quick, they won’t be around for long.
This case contains:
2x Terradura Pecorino, IGT Colline Pescaresi 2018 – Italy
Appealing citrus and white flower aromas. The palate is fresh with more citrus, stone-fruit and mineral notes – leading to a textural yet crisp finish, a simply stunning Pecorino.
2x Brisa de Verano Garnatxa Blanca, Catalunya 2017 – Spain
‘Brisa de Verano’ references the summer breeze that drifts across the high vineyards. A wine that harnesses Spain’s ability to make beautifully poised, textural, multi-layered and imminently pleasurable white wines from indigenous varieties. Leaning heavily on the Garnacha Blanca grape with a touch of Macabeo to round it off, this wine is beautiful in every sense and a steal being included in this case. A peach and citrus-scented white with notes of white flower and light spice. The palate is complex with notes of stone fruit and grapefruit. Lightly herbal with minerality and a fresh, textural finish.
2x Alasia Piemonte Cortese 2016 – Italy
With a silver medal at the Catavinum International Awards in 2018 this gorgeous Cortese, made from the same grape used in Gavi, is similarly approachable, making it the perfect aperitif wine. Fresh green apple aromas with notes of grapefruit, lime and honeysuckle. The palate is lightly honeyed, yet fresh and crisp with citrus flavours, almond notes, and minerality on the finish.
2x Palazzi Catarratto, IGT Terre Siciliane 2018 – Italy
A delicious and characterful white from western Sicily. The Catarratto grapes are sourced from the Marsala area on the west coast of Sicily, and from hillside vineyards near Alcamo at 600m altitude. Ripe peach and tropical fruit aromas with a lightly herbal note. More stone fruit characters on the palate with hints of honey – finishing with fresh citrus acidity.
2x Palazzi Nero d’Avola, DOC Sicilia 2018 – Italy
A lovely juicy red with enough weight and character to match all manner of foods. This grape is so often overlooked but creates gorgeous, juicy, food-friendly wines. Ripe plum and black cherry aromas with a hint of spice. A plump red with savoury, lightly spicy and smoky characters – plus a hint of bitter chocolate and nip of tannin on the finish. Oh yes please!
2x Rame Garnacha Black Label Bodegas Borsao 2018 – Spain
Garnacha grown on alluvial soils in the foothills of the Moncayo mountain. Aromas of ripe blackberry and plum. Bright bramble fruit and cherry characters on the palate, with supple tannins and balancing acidity.
