We started working with Italians producers in 2013. Demand for Italian wines is growing and we have spent a lot of time for sourcing but we are very proud of our selection.
We have selected 2 regions for I.G.T. wines, which are Sicilia and Toscana. Sicilia is the second biggest wine production area in Italy (120 000 ha) and there we produce a Nero d’Avola. This varietal is often compared to a Syrah. It’s a full body red wine. Our Nero d’Avola offers beautiful aromas of liquorice, blackberries and blueberries. The other region we have chosen is Toscana. The vineyards were we select our grapes have a very rich soil and an extraordinary climate. Our wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot.
Our Chianti Rufina wine is a blend of Sangiovese (95%) and Colorina (5%). The wine is aged for 8 months in French barrels and it represents perfectly the style of Chianti Rufina wines.This wine has a deep ruby red color, an intense bouquet with Berry, cherry and violet aromas and flavours. On the palate it is full, round and harmonious, with an excellent tannic structure.
The hilly sunny ride vineyard is situated between 150 and 300 meters above sea level. For Ripasso we have 10 days post fermentation on skins. Then in February of the following year, the wine referments on the fresh pomace left over from the just-completed Recioto Amarone fermentation, giving the Valpolicella richer flavors and complexity. Grapes used for this wine is Corvina (80%), Rondinella (15%) and Molinara (5%).
