Buon Natale! The Lea & Sandeman Italian Christmas Mixed Case

by Ed H-B

If you are kicking against the traces and having goose rather than turkey, you may feel that Christmas is better served by a full-on Italian accent rather than the French classics. If so, this mixed case is the one is for you.

Italian Christmas Mixed Case

Our Italian wine list expands year by year and this 12 bottle mixed case makes a perfect answer to any question Christmas might throw at you. Fizz, white, red and even a little glass of Vin Santo, Tuscany’s classic winter celebration drink (this one is a bit too good for dunking biscuits, but if you must…)

Normal price £213.50    Case price: £192.00

2013 PROSECCO SUPERIORE Villa Luigia Brut Il Follo
Italy

2013 PROSECCO SUPERIORE Villa Luigia Brut Il Follo

3 x 75cl bottles

This is our top cuvée from the brilliant Luca Follador. His vintage cuvée of Prosecco Superiore. Full of wonderful drive and push – the firm, bright fruit and mineral core are in perfect harmony. Nothing too whimsical here this is an elegant and deliciously drinkable Prosecco – so much more fun than most. L&S

2013 KRATOS Fiano Luigi Maffini
Campania Italy

2013 KRATOS Fiano Luigi Maffini

 2 x 75cl bottles

Pure Fiano from 3 separate parcels which Luigi says each add another dimension to this gorgeous, perky wine. Lovely greengage intensity and pure bright lines frame the gorgeously textured mid palate. Delicious for drinking now. L&S

2011 BARBERA D’ALBA Serraboella Cigliuti
Alba Piedmont Italy

2011 BARBERA D'ALBA Serraboella Cigliuti

2 x 75cl bottles

The 2011 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Serraboella wraps around the palate with lovely density and depth. Raspberry jam, cloves, menthol and flowers flesh out in a supple, generous Barbera that will drink well right out of the gate. The Serraboella is aged in neutral French oak barrels.   Drink 2013-2018 90 Antonio Galloni, vinousmedia.com

2008 CHIANTI CLASSICO Riserva Poggio Bonelli
Tuscany Italy

2008 CHIANTI CLASSICO Riserva Poggio Bonelli

2 x 75cl bottles

Powerful and rich with ripe Sangiovese and a more subtle oak than earlier vintages. Tobacco and cinnamon spice with the deep black fruit, a refreshingly dry texture and long. A lovely balanced finish with fine tannins. L&S

2007 MONTETI Tenuta Monteti
Tuscany Italy

2007 MONTETI Tenuta Monteti

2 x 75cl bottles

Potentially the best vintage of Monteti that I have tasted. 55% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvigon, aged eighteen months in French oak barrels, of which 70% are new. The oak is beautifully integrated with the very fine sweet fruit and rounded tannins. This is very smart indeed. L&S

2007 VIN SANTO Poggio Bonelli
Tuscany Italy

2007 VIN SANTO Poggio Bonelli

1 x Half-litres

Richly textured, notes of dried apricots and exotic sweet fruits, beautifully balanced. L&S

black-line
