2016 Haurio Colli Senesi Mormoraia
A joy-filled load of ripe brambling berries and some deep, red cherry flesh splash across the palate. Nicely pinned back from being too broad by a pique of classic sangiovese bite and a lovely texture of soft, fine tannins. A fabulous follow-on to the inaugural 2015. Juicy and plush but unmistakably Chianti. L&S (Sep 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Giuseppe Passoni farms 30ha of organic vines (and 10ha of olive trees) centred on an old nunnery - the low murmur of the nuns at prayer give the estate its name.
Oenotria the Greeks called Italy - the 'land of vines' - and they'd know as they took the first vines to the peninsular, where they thrive to this day in every region of the country. Here's a selection from across Italy, focused on the classics from Piedmont in the north to Sicily in the south. Of course there is some Prosecco for bubbles, along with the new pretender to the Italian bubbles crown, Franciacorta.
