This week our wine buyers have put together a selection of six delicious wines well worth looking at. Among which we offer: Fruit-driven, spicy Valpolicella Classico, our acclaimed Pinot Grigio Ramato and a new discovery, Zibibbo Vitese.
Zibibbo Vitese 2018 Colomba Bianca (Organic) £11.69
A dry and crisp white wine, fruity driven with succulent notes of white peach and apricot combined with soft floral aromatics of orange blossom and jasmine. Elegant and perfumed with a long, dry, zesty citrus finish.
Grillo Luma 2018 Fantini £12.99
Straw yellow and delicate aroma, fruity (apple and exotic fruits), with floral notes. Fresh, full-bodied, tasty, harmonious, persistent with a slightly bitter aftertaste, that remembers almonds. Best Served with, light risotto, oily fish, cous cous and fish soup. Great with smoked fish.
Amedeo Bianco di Custoza 2017 Cavalchina £16.99
This is one of our best white wines! The Amedeo is a wine from Custoza, an area near Verona in Veneto. The grapes are Gargenega, Fernanda and Trebbianello. The Garganega was fermented in large oak casks to obtain a wine with a smooth moth feel rather than a oaky wine. It is perfectly balanced, with a fresh and mineral acidity combined with rich notes of peach, honey and vanilla.
Pinot Grigio Ramato 2017 Specogna £19.99
This wine is soft pink in colour with copper highlights, a characteristic of this varietal. Fresh and floral on the nose with aromas of apples, pears and elderflower. On the palate, it has an apple and pineapple character with a lively, lifted finish and hints of freshly-baked bread.
Salice Salentino Zolla 2016 Vigneti del Salento £15.99
The grapes for this wine have been sourced mostly from vineyards in the communes of Manduria from at least 20 year old bush vines. On the nose, it has intense aromas of cherry, plum and pomegranate with sweet spice and Mediterranean herbs. Good structure with supple fruit on the palate and good acidity on the finish.
Valpolicella Classico Ripasso 2017 Torre D'Orti £19.99
This wonderful wine is made from a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. It has a rich spicy black pepper nose with a hint of raisins. Full-bodied, intense and spicy with refined cherry flavours.
