  3. Matteo Correggia Roero Arneis 2017

    Matteo Correggia Roero Arneis 2017

    Matteo Corregia was instrumental in establishing the Roero DOC, which in turn has helped revive interest in the local grape Arneis. The vineyard receives multiple passes to ensure optimal ripeness and health, before the wine receives 6 months in ageing stainless steel. Pretty aromas of quince, peach, apricot, and almonds lead into a palate that has the perfect balance between freshness and weight, with a lightly chewy texture. Learn More
  4. Giacomo Grimaldi "Sotto Castello di Novello" Barolo 2015

    Giacomo Grimaldi "Sotto Castello di Novello" Barolo 2015

    From a winery founded in 1930 but who only first released their first wine in 1996 – such is the attention to detail. The vineyard is Sotto Castello di Novello, located on the south-west tip of Barolo and of which the family own 3.3ha. The wine is aged in 50-60% new oak for 22-24 months for a rich, mouthfilling, densely textured feel, with aromas of violets, plum, blueberry, and licorice and an acidic, tannic structure which gives the wine years of ageing potential.

Great for a warm day as well as with summer salads or fish. Learn More
  6. Paitin Langhe Nebbiolo "Starda" 2017

    Paitin Langhe Nebbiolo "Starda" 2017

    Here in the heart of Napa, we’re finding it very hard to resist becoming a wine shop specialising in Nebbiolo. But it’s hard when there’s so much good wine being made, especially when it’s such good value as this one. Anyone we’ve tasted blind on this wine has guessed it to be priced at $40-50, but it’s half the price. It’s everything you want and expect from Nebbiolo – pretty and floral with aromas of red fruits, tar, and perfume, with a superb tannic/acidic structure. Learn More
  7. Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso 2011

    Marchesi di Gresy Monferrato Rosso 2011

    From one of the great Barbaresco producers comes this Merlot that’s seen plenty of barrel and bottle ageing. From 2011, it has mature aromas of earth, game, dried fruits, dried herbs, and leather, but it’s still extremely fresh with aromas of red plum and licorice, as well as firm tannins and high acidity on the palate. A quietly sophisticated wine that at this quality and at this age should cost much more. Learn More
  8. Azelia Bricco dell'Oriolo Dolcetto d'Alba 2016

    Azelia Bricco dell'Oriolo Dolcetto d'Alba 2016

    Grown on a south-facing vineyard – which gets the grapes fully ripe – just outside Dogliani and Barolo from 45-year-old vines at 600m elevation – which keeps the acidity really fresh (often a problem with Dolcetto). Aromas of pure red and black fruits plus pepper and licorice lead into a palate that’s got a firm tannic grip and a lightly chewy mouthfeel. A quietly serious example of Dolcetto. Learn More
  9. G.D. Vajra Moscato d'Asti 2016

    G.D. Vajra Moscato d'Asti 2016

    This is truly scrumptious, Moscato d’Asti at its finest and most irresistible. There’s an incredible freshness to the wine, with aromas of freshly picked flowers, grapes, peaches, and apricots followed by a light, delicate palate (just 5% ABV) whose creamy mousse gently coats the palate. Think strawberries and cream and go to heaven. Learn More
  10. Stroppiano Barolo Riserva 2011

    Stroppiano Barolo Riserva 2011

    This is such a beautiful wine which is ageing so gracefully. From a producer owning 5.5ha in La Morra, where the wines are known for their elegance. It spends 36 months in Slavonian foudres to give a soft, delicate edge. An extremely attractive, perfumed nose of red fruits, tar, leather, and sweet spices goes into a palate with a firm tannic grip and fresh acidity. In its eighth year, this is still a young wine that’s extremely approachable now, but will age for another fifteen years at least. Learn More
