As you know we are particularly proud of our own Italian wines that we import directly, but we would be failing you if we didn’t offer the two great ‘Super Tuscans’ – 2011 Tignanello & Sassicaia alongside our superb 2010 Le Macchiole wines and our perennial favourites from Terriccio, to mention a few. There will be plenty more news from Italy coming soon with Charles returning early next week from a tour of our Tuscan producers where there have been a succession of brilliant vintages made, a different story to Bordeaux.
We spend a fair amount time promoting Italian wines that we import ourselves, but we would be failing you if we didn’t offer the two great ‘Super Tuscans’ – 2011 Tignanello & Sassicaia alongside our superb 2010 Le Macchiole wines:
TIGNANELLO 2011 – Marchesi Antinori
‘The 2011 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in color with purple highlights.
The wine is ripe on the nose with notes of dark fruit and with much underlying freshness on the aromatic finish; plum fruit dominates the aromatic gamut along with cherries, and the aromas evolve with vigor and balance towards sensations of mint and liquorice.‘
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
OFFER PRICE: £270.00 per 6 pack (IB) or £285.00 (DP) ex VAT (free delivery).
SASSICAIA 2011 – Tenuta San Guido
‘The climate trend in 2011 was truly exceptional for Bolgheri. It can be considered one of the best vintages since the year 2000.’
Blend: 85 % Cabernet Sauvignon 15 % Cabernet Franc
OFFER PRICE: £545.00 per 6 pack (IB) or £560.00 (DP) ex VAT (free delivery).
