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 (and towards Italy…) 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
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 Ancora Rosato Chiaretto
Aromas of fresh strawberry and redcurrants. The ripe and juicy plum and cherry characters on the palate give excellent substance and weight, all balanced by crisp acidity.
2x Alasia Piemonte Cortese 2016
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
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
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
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.
