The winegang were in attendance at our recent SNP tasting at the Saatchi Gallery and have kindly penned some complimentary words about LEA & SANDEMAN. Words like these: 'Our scores speak for themselves: there's no question that LEA & SANDEMAN is one of Britain's top wine merchants.' Praise indeed.
We are prompted this week by the lovely note from David Williams in The Observer into making this our wine of the week:- 2011 ROSSO DI MONTEPULCIANO Dei £12.95 single bottle, / £11.
Three reds and a Champagne at a one-day only price. Not sure what it is like where you are, but it's been grey and rainy all day in London, so if you are not feeling much like going out, here is a one-off opportunity to stock up on some real Autumn favourites at special prices for today only.
Roberto Guerrini-Fuligni reported from Fuligni in Montalcino on the 9th October:- 'Harvest 2013 is just finished, a few days ago, (it took 7 days to pick about 12 hectares) and I have in my hands the analytical dates of a great vintage.
Agostino Lenci of Fattoria di Magliano wrote to us excitedly this week, with the news that in the 2013 'Vinellando', a competition organised by the local trade bodies for Morellino di Scansano, his 2011 MORELLINO DI SCANSANO Heba Fattoria di Magliano came out top.
For us, our customers and wine aficionados everywhere, Brunello di Montalcino represents some of the highest quality yet best value fine wine available in the world today. As ever, the inimitable Fuligni house style of purity, lightness of touch and elegance, in no way lacks concentration or intensity of fruit.
SOLD OUT On Thursday 13th December we are hosting our final wine dinner of 2012, in one of our favourite dining rooms in London, the private room at the River Café, with the wines of Castello del Terriccio. Patrick Sandeman was the first 'outsider' (not from the estate staff) other than the consultant oenologist Carlo Ferrini, to taste these wines, back in the early '90s.
Roberto Fuligni came to London this week to launch the new releases of Brunello, the 2006 'Riserva' and the 2007 'normale', and this gave us the perfect opportunity to show off a number of his wines to a select number of journalists and wine buyers over lunch in the private dining room of the River Cafe.
The Wine Gang will undoubtedly be familiar to many of our customers, but for those who are not the 'Gang' is made up of five of the UK's foremost wine writers and tasters: Tom Cannavan, Jane Parkinson, Anthony Rose, Joanna Simon, and David Williams.
