Artigiano Nero D’Avola 2017 ItalyArtigiano Nero D’Avola 2017 Italy
Nero d’Avola is Siciliy’s most precious red grape and one of Italy’s most important indigenous varietals. Until the 1980s it was almost exclusively used to add colour and weight to the lighter reds of France and Northern Italy as it had a tendency to run to alcohol. However modern techniques, both in the vineyard and in the winery, allow winemakers nowadays to maintain the inherent varietal character without the overwhelming alcohol. As a result Nero is often compared to Shiraz, with smooth fruit flavours and very approachable tannins.

Bera Barbaresco 2015 ItalyBera Barbaresco 2015 Italy
Fate or history decreed that the Bera property would finish a tantalizing 400 metres just outside the Barbaresco zone. Typically unperturbed, Walter Bera has gradually developed a collection of the Piemontese classics, with each beautifully made, rich and strongly expressive – and great value. His Moscato is regarded as one of the most consistent in Asti.
This opens with scents of dark berry, toast and a whiff of graphite. On the tense palate, notes of sage, aniseed and tobacco add depth to the core of raw red cherry while bracing tannins offer support.

Bera Barbera D’Alba 2018. A Bera red usually shows deep, rich fruit, but with great complexity and always freshness, life and zip. Here they maximized the deep plummy juiciness and concentration, and retain the savoury edge to go so well with many foods, simple or rich. A great allround red, which needs just a little breathing.
Biscardo Neropasso Rosso Veneto 2016 ItalyBiscardo Neropasso Rosso Veneto 2016 Italy
Made from an interesting blend of indigenous Italian varietals (Corvinone and Corvina) and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is referred to as a ‘baby Amarone’.Classified as a Rosso Veneto IGT due to the inclusion of a non-Italian varietal it replicates the Amarone production method of ‘appassimento’ – drying healthy grapes before crushing and fermenting.
The method depends on optimum picking times to allow for sufficient natural acid to remain in the grapes to balance the enriched fruit flavours.
Intense bright ruby colour with lifted, fresh red fruit aromas of ripe plum, juicy red cherries and vanilla.These follow through to the palate to balance with soft acidity and velvety tannins that extend into a long, satisfying finish.
