  1. 2015 ‘SRC’ AZIENDA AGRICOLA CRASA  Cru Rivaggi

    2015 ‘SRC’ AZIENDA AGRICOLA CRASA Cru Rivaggi

    Regular Price: $80.00

    Special Price: $78.99

    As low as: $75.00

    "One of the best, young Etna wines I’ve seen. It’s guttural and savoury, earthy and yet sweet fruited, powered by clamping tannins and a swish of blood orange acidity. Impressive in its sweep across the palate it’s wildly, wonderfully perfumed with a mix of dark berries, briar, dark chocolate, warm stones, ash and alpine herbs. There’s depth in flavour too, no wallflower, but the freshness is all there. Velocity across the tongue, assertive, lip-smacking, then stains the palate with that gently ferrous, pumice like drawl of Etna. Unreal."

  2. Alessandro e Gian Natale Fantino Rosso Dei Dardi 2015

    Alessandro e Gian Natale Fantino Rosso Dei Dardi 2015

    Regular Price: $33.00

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $30.00

    This is a primal, untamed expression of pure Nebbiolo fruit


    Dark cherry, liquorice, violet and dried rose perfume. Medium bodied, fleshy and ripe, with layers of meaty and silky tannin, clean acidity, and an almost bubblegum perfume in the aftertaste. It's good fun now, though I reckon it will be much better with a couple of years in the cellar to let it settle down. What a bargain!

    Benevelli Piero Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

    Regular Price: $33.00

    Special Price: $27.99

    As low as: $26.99

    It’s a very young and slightly raw wine, and while it’s probably meant to be enjoyed young, I’d either throw it into a decanter for a couple of hours, or pop it in the cellar for another couple of years: it makes a big difference. Anyway, as at now, it’s red fruited and perfumed, showing some sweet aniseed and spice, along with a whiff of new leather. Medium bodied, brightly lit and vibrant, with red cherry and red berry flavours, light chalky tannin, and a long gently sweet finish that’s perfumed and very fine. Remarkable wine for the money. 93+ points Winefront.com.au

    Cigliuti Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

    Regular Price: $50.00

    Special Price: $47.00

    As low as: $46.50

    There’s talk that 2015 is one of the best vintages in Piedmont for quite some time, and that 2016 is even better. Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”


    Black cherry, liquorice root, baking spices and potpourri. Medium bodied, supple and fleshy, almost juicy, then the Nebbiolo tannin extends its friendly and reassuring grip, slips in some savoury stuff like new leather, and closes with perfume and strong black tea flavour and texture. It needs some time in the decanter as a youngster, but still delivers
    a gorgeous hit of affordable Barbaresco should you fancy going in early. Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au

    Graci Etna Rosso 2014

    This fragrant red offers alluring scents of rose, red berry and cake spice. The radiant, structured palate is endowed with finesse, offering ripe black cherry, raspberry, licorice and flinty mineral. Firm, refined tannins and bright acidity provide the framework.
    Drink 2020 through 2025. 93 points Wine Enthusiast


    High toned with purple flower and almost Syrah-like Leather and spices on the back palate which donate richness and structure to the wine.

    Mandoleto Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane (Case Buy)

    Regular Price: $15.00

    Special Price: $13.50

    Black jellybeans stuffed in leather pants, dark cherry, iron filings, damp earth, sweet dried herbs. Medium bodied, clean acidity, cherry and blackcurrant, light but grainy chalky tannin and pretty decent length. A little gamey, perhaps, but such a good drinking wine.
    Recommended unconditionally. Drink now.

    ....  the palate is a lively mix of berries and savoury tannins with lively acidity. Not surprisingly it’s easy to drink with a spicy imprint on the finish. Another impressive import with bags of bright personality that begs for food. WiningPom

  3. Mandoleto Pinot Grigio (Case Buy)

    Mandoleto Pinot Grigio (Case Buy)

    Regular Price: $15.00

    Special Price: $13.00

    a classic vintage throughout much of Europe and Veneto was no exception. The vineyards began with excellent soil moisture levels and the vines responded well to ideal spring conditions before a very warm, dry summer slowed growth and limited yields. A warm , clear Autumn provided excellent ripening but crucially cool nights ensured the retention of naturally acidity. The wines are surprisingly fresh and aromatic with excellent depth of flavour.


    Pale and delicate in colour with subtle citrus and floral aromas. The palate is elegant and delightfully fresh with delicate citrus and tropical flavours building to notes of ripe pear matched by soft mineral acidity before a dry finish.

    Olek Bondonio Barbareso Roncagliette 2014

    Regular Price: $110.00

    Special Price: $104.99

    Bright, fresh and fragrant. Aromatic herbs, dried rose, fennel seed, cherry, fresh raspberry, some walnut too. It’s packed with red fruit and has a cranberry juice flavour and refreshing acidity. Feels high definition too, with pumice stone tannin, and clean clear length. So much energy in the glass here, and, frankly, kind of hard not to quaff. Dynamite." Rated : 95 Points Winefront.com.au

  2. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014

    Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014

    Regular Price: $69.00

    Special Price: $65.00

    As low as: $63.00
    "2014 Passopisciaro  Passorosso (Formerly Passopisciaro) Bright red-ruby. The captivating nose combines strawberry, raspberry, minerals, violet and flint aromas. Creamy-sweet but amazingly light on its feet, offering palate-staining, perfumed flavors of soft red berries, ripe red cherry, vanilla, aromatic herbs and crushed rock. Rich, ripe and suave, but displays a penetrating, saline and energetic quality that gives this beauty a three-dimensional mouthfeel and a light-on-its-feet quality.

    Finishes with great length and wonderfully polished tannins.

    Absolute knockout wine: from a memorable vintage on Etna,

    this is most likely the best Passorosso ever (in earlier vintages, it used to be called simply Passopisciaro). Mainly Nerello Mascalese."

    Regular Price: $25.00

    A rich, dark and mellow Sicilian red with cherry and blueberry fruit, framed by cedar and gently spicy oak. Vibrant and juicy with good length.


    No review available yet, below is the review of the previous vintage, the 2014! I think the 2015is better, but not yet reviewed.


    "I picked up a bottle of this in a supermarket while on holiday. I’d not seen it before. It was one of those Japanese supermarkets where everything looked either exciting or frightening or both. Once spotted, I didn’t hesitate. Had no idea what an appropriate price is, or indeed what it’s quality would be like.


    If you see this in a shop anywhere; clear them out. It’s a beautiful, intriguing, tangy, sweet-but-serious wine at a snip of a price. Buy a dozen. Buy two. It’s rusty and redcurrranty, redolent of ripe raspberries, fractionally herbal and chalky but lively, scented, structured, the kit and the caboodle. It’s light and it’s lovely. $20-ish? I’m in." Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au
