    "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 f Learn More

    Special Price: $31.99

    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!  Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    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 perfum Learn More

    Cascina Fontana Dolcetto d'Alba 2015

    Regular Price: $26.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    As low as: $24.00
    Like all wines born in the Barolo region, with age Dolcetto begins to take on some of the characteristics of Nebbiolo, particularly in the evolution of its bouquet. Dolcetto d’Alba can be drunk cool in summer months. This everyday wine is the ideal accompaniment to salumi and antipasti as well as to simple pasta and meat dishes." - Winery Ruby red with violet reflections. Fresh, intense with notes of cherry and plum. Soft, not tannic, full in the mouth, easy to drink.

    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 Learn More

  3. Girlan Alto Adige Pinot Bianco 2016

    Girlan Alto Adige Pinot Bianco 2016

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $25.00

    As low as: $23.99
    Girlan's entry level Pinot Bianco comes from hand-picked fruit grown on the mineral rich hillsides of Cornaiano, at altitudes ranging from 450 to 500 metres above sea level. At this level, the juice is simply tank fermented, with 10% going through malo to add some flesh to the wine's crisp Alpine bones. It's a racy, pulpy, kaffir lime, apple, and spice scented quencher with lovely, pithy minerality and a zesty tang on the finish. Another genuine bargain from this over delivering outfit. Learn More

    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 de Learn More

    "This is from younger vines in Serralunga (barolo). Different from other recently reviewed nebbs that were briefly 'aged' in stainless steel, this was matured in big oak for 18 months before bottling and is way more tertiary in its colour, aromas and flavours. As a result it presents more like a scaled-back barolo, with characters of earth, mineral and tar, with ever-present fragrant notes reinforcing the elegance. The resolved level of the fruit and tannins make this just as gluggable as its more primary contemporaries. And it went down a treat with pan-f Learn More

    Regular Price: $69.00

    Special Price: $59.99

    3. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014 ($65) - The importer has already sold out of this fantastic wine from the fertile slopes of Sicily’s Mount Etna. However, you can still find it (in rapidly decreasing quantities) at selected retailers around the country, and when you do I recommend you buy the lot. It is a mid-weight wine that somehow conveys a sense of rocky energy. It has an exciting nose where strawberry and raspberry fruit are lifted by violet aromatics, and there are herbs, spices and the stony, rocky element that is hard to identi Learn More

    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.

    A ruby red in colour with purple highlights, grapey in aroma with floral (roses) and spicy notes from the aging in oak, full and balanced in flavour. A very versatile wine, its roundness and suppleness make it an excellent match with a full range of dishes as, for example, the traditional fried meats and vegetables and the pot-au-feu of Piedmont.   Learn More
