2019 Barbera d'Asti 'Solo Acciao', Montalbera - Piedmont
Unusually for Barbera, this wine spends no time in oak barrel. This means it retains its fresh fruit character and its beautiful, round mouthfeel comes from smart treatment of grapes. This is medium bodied with ripe, cherry fruit character and a bright acidity that will pair perfectly with ragù or grilled meat.
2018 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Caldora - Abruzzo
Montepulciano is one of Italy's most widely planted grape varities. This wine is has lots to offer. Fruity, full-bodied and round on the palate with ripe plum and blackberry character. The fruit is balanced by lovely acidity and hints of spice and vanilla.
2019 Valpolicella Classico, Le Salette - Veneto, Italy
Italy's famed, elegant red that is light on its feet but pure and precise. Notes of fresh raspberries and cranberries fill the palate and underneath there is a delicate dried herb note. Lifted and bright, this will pair perfectly with cured meats and antipasti dishes.
2018 Primitivo di Manduria, Magnifico - Puglia
Italy's iconic, southern style, Manduria is famed for their production of Primitivo wines. One of the warmest regions in Italy, the wines here are bold, concentrated in flavour and luscious. Full bodied, dark fruits and velvety texture balance out this gorgeous wine.
2019 Chianti 'Biskero', Salcheto - Tuscany
This organic Chianti spends little time in oak, unlike many of its Tuscan siblings. This gives the Sangiovese grape the chance to express its pure red cherry and plum character and a delicate spiced finish. Smooth, ripe and fresh this will accompany a Pasta al Ragù just perfectly.
2019 Cannonau di Sardegna 'Lillové', Gabbas - Sardinia
Known for producing exemplary traditional Sardinian styles, Gabbas' Cannonau is elegant, with a fragrant bouquet of fresh raspberries and violets, soft tannins and a hint of white pepper on the finish.
