Ideal for red wine lovers for Father's Day!
This week our buyers have selected 2015 vintage red wines from different Italian regions.
The 2015 vintage keeps impressing us & after a year from their launch, the wines have matured in bottle and have gained complexity, intensity and the tannins have become soft & round. We have paired these wines with our 18 month matured French Gouda and our favourite blue cheese the Erborinato di San Carlone.
Gouda 18month 200g £6.79
Firm and fruity with a deep yellow colour, this waxed classic becomes granular at this stage of maturity. Small air pockets appear as the cheese loses its moisture, whilst its rich flavour intensifies.
Erborinato San Carlone 200g £8.00
A blue cheese from Novara, produced from unpasteurised Cow's milk. Ripened for over 90 days. Intense flavour and slightly spicy, a distinctive blue cheese. San Carlone is the patron saint of Arona in Novara.
Chianti Rufina Riserva 2015 Selvapiana £29.99
Tremendous depth of colour with great intensity on the nose and a powerful, fruit packed palate, unusual for the Chianti Rufina zone which is usually characterised by its leaner, elegant wines. Ripe raspberry and spicy cherry fruit, with a touch of herbs and violets on the palate, robust tannins and the long, fine finish which is the hallmark of the Selvapiana wines.
Palazzo della Torre 2015 Allegrini £22.49
Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest gateau. This wine has good body and an ageing potential of at least ten years. It has a smooth and velvety character, with mature, pulpy fruit character and delicious raisin flavours.
Prima Mano 2015 A Mano £25.99
Deep purple in colour, black cherries, violet, and mocha on the nose. Full of juicy blackberry, cherry and plum fruit, with dark mineral and peppery spice notes rounding things out. Impressively concentrated without being heavy and lush without being sweet. With a freshness and an acidity that is instantly inviting, leading to a long lasting finish with balance and structure.
