Grillo Lumá 2020 Fantini 75cl Sicilia
Grillo is the most famous native Sicilian white grape variety, originally used to produce Marsala wines. It is very popular for the production of still dry white wines. The Lumá Grillo has delicate aromas of exotic fruits with floral notes on the nose. Fresh, full-bodied and harmonious on the palate with a zesty lemon aftertaste. Best served with light risotto or smoked fish.
Falanghina Beneventano 2020 Vesevo 75cl Campania
Produced in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. Low temperature fermentation has retained the fresh, crisp and aromatic quality of the wine whilst still allowing its character to shine through. On the nose you will find perfumes of white melon, peaches, and white flowers. This is an elegant wine with subtle flavours of ripe stone fruits, zesty citrus fruit and leaves a lingering touch of honey.
Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2020 Fantini 75cl Abruzzo

Medium to rich body, intense, well-balanced, soft and round, very long in the mouth. A red wine drinker’s rosé. Drink young. Best served with fish or white meat. Excellent in between meals, or before, or after!!
Chiaretto Bardolino 2020 Cavalchina 75cl Veneto
Made from the Corvina grape around Lake Garda - so delicate and light in comparison with the Cerasuolo. Pale pink in colour, with delicate aromas of wild berries, wildflowers, accompanied by light and refreshing scents of chlorophyll, green apple, and subtle veins of spice. The taste is light, dry, savoury with fresh cherry fruity flavours. Perfect for light and cold starters such as poached or smoked salmon. A white wine drinker’s Rosé.
Zinfandel Riporta 2020 Fantini 75cl Puglia
The discussion and disagreements are still open, but DNA testing has proved and confirmed that Zinfandel is identical to Primitivo. In terms of style, the Zinfandel is an even more fruit forward wine, softer and juicier that the Primitivo. Our Riporta Zinfandel comes from Puglia’s land of the sun, Salento. Intense aromas of cherry and blackberry jam and vaguely tobacco smoke notes. The palate is slightly sweet with some spiciness, and a finish that gives notes of cocoa and coffee. Long and persistent on the finish.
Nero d'Avola Lumá 2020 Fantini 75cl Sicilia
This is a rich and complex Nero d’Avola from the area around Sambuca, a town in the south of Sicily. A wine with a strong personality and an intense and harmonic character. After maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for at least six months. It is rich, full of black cherries, plums and redcurrants, all accompanied by elegant spice and some delicate oak flavours.
