2019 Ramato Friuli Colli Orientali Azienda Agricola Visintini
|Origin||Italy, Friuli Venezia Giulia|
|Sub-district||Friuli Colli Orientali|
This is a wine that creeps up on you and wraps itself around your taste buds with such a seductive style. Notes of pear and peach, white flowers and just a hint of chamomile. The palate is ripe but not heavy, layered with stone fruit and an edge of subtly spiced pear, then a bright acid balance. With it's gently bronzy pink colour and mouthfilling complexity it is a great wine for all seasons. L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Azienda Agricola Visintini
Founded in 1973 by Andrea Visintini, this twenty-four hectare estate has vineyards in Collio, Collio Orientali and Grave del Friuli, and is now controlled by the new generation of Oliviero and his twin sisters Cinzia and Palmira. The wines are beautifully made, each with wonderful expression of both the grape and the 'terroir'. Vineyard practices are now entirely biodynamic, and certified this year. These wines are also extraordinarily good value in what is generally a highly priced region.
With the 2014 vintage the family have unveiled the brilliant new labels for each of the wines - with the beautiful botanical drawings of flavours or fruits that relate to the flavour profiles in each different varietal. The wines are great too - in a far from straightforward vintage - beautiful fruit definition and lovely bright minerality.
An Italian Christmas or Natale is definitely something worth exploring and this case covers the length and breadth of this incredible country.
With fizz from Lombardy, tip top Nebbiolo from both Barolo and Barbaresco, Sangiovese from Chianti and Brunello and the stunning Nerello Mascalese from the slopes of Etna in Sicily, there is plenty to keep you royally entertained.
A case chock-full of sophisticated charmers from the length and breadth of Italy. From the high valleys of the Alto Adige near the Austrian border right down to the gleaming coast of Campania south of Naples.
Our Italian friends really know what’s important in life - and getting the food and wine 'right' is key! We've got half of that covered here with this delicious mix of whites. There is an unmistakable precision that runs through them all. These are wines fresh enough to drink as aperitivi - but with the bags of texture and complexity that make them all the perfect partner for the season's fare too. Saluti!
All you could possibly need for your festivities at a cracking price. Great quality fizz, supple easy going whites and three reds that will delight with their gorgeous fruitiness, intensity and balance all delivered in very different ways. Now where is the feast!
