Soave Classico 2018 Pieropan 75cl £16.99
Pieropan's estate covers 58 hectares of vineyard, situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. This 2018 vintage has light floral notes with hints of apricot and marzipan on the nose. Elegant and well-balanced on the palate, with mineral notes well combined with ripe apple and peach flavours. Layers of almond blossom and acacia honey come through on the long finish.
Valpolicella Classico Ripasso 2017 Torre D'Orti 75cl £19.99
The Torre D’Orti estate belongs to the Piona family. For centuries this estate was used as a watchtower, and the same land was utilised by the local farmers for growing olives, grapes and cereals. They created terracing, still visible and used today. The land was replanted with vines for the production of Valpolicella wines. This is the V&C favourite Ripasso, a wonderful wine made from a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. On the nose it has rich spiced black fruit, a touch of pepper and a hint of raisins. A full bodied, intense and rich red wine with refined cherry flavours and a long finish.
Amarone della Valpolicella 2016 Alpha Zeta 75cl £29.99
The most well recognised wine from Veneto, made using a traditional technique called 'appassimento', where the grapes are dried before pressed and fermented. This practice creates deep and intense wines. Our AZ Amarone has complex perfumes of dried cherries and blueberries on the nose, with notes of spiced autumn fruit compote. On the palate it is powerful but modern, with a lovely balance of ripe tannins and spiced, concentrated savoury cherry fruit flavour. A touch of wood smoke completes the long finish.
