Italy has always been close to the heart of Lea & Sandeman and we are very fortunate enough to represent some superb estates across the length and breadth of this beautiful country.
We wine merchants don’t mind taking our work home with us. We don’t even really mind taking it on holiday…
I have for a long time had a fascination for Italian wines. It isn’t just their quality that interests me; it’s their unquestionable value too.
Over the last few days we have been delighted to read some glowing reviews for a couple of our favourite wines:
This is simply delicious. Achieving that perfect balance between weight and brightness that results in immense drinkability. An ideal drinks party wine or a partner to a summer lunch in the garden.
‘I was bowled over by the CABURNIO 2010 (Tenuta Monteti) in my recent order … it would make an excellent addition to the College cellar.’
This week’s Wine of the Week is the perfect summer ‘fridge’ red. It is one of the first three wines we have imported from Bicocchi Alicante, a family farm near Massa Marittima in the Tuscan Maremma.
