Valpolicella Classico Ripasso, Lenotti Estate
The Lenotti ‘Le Crosare’ Valpolicella Ripasso is the result of the highest quality Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape varieties, coming from the classic area of Valpolicella north of Verona. The winemaking process has a brief “ripasso” (re-passing) on the grape skins of the Amarone which gives this red extra body and flavour.
It is a well-structured wine, intense ruby red colour with a bouquet that is fine and intense. Dry and savoury in the mouth it is full bodied and velvety. Drinking very well now although it has the potential to improve if cellared 4-5 years after harvest. Highly recommend by the Le Bon Vin team.Learn More
Castello di Verrazzano, Chianti Classico DOCG
Verrazzano's Chianti Classico, like others in the Greve area of Chianti have typically more concentrated flavours than in Castellina, Gaiole or Castelnuovo Berardegna. However, this is a classic Chianti, deep ruby red in colour with aromas of mature fruits like cherry and blackberry. Light in body with a little oak (from 18 months in barrel) with fine grained tannins and pleasant bursts of juicy wild cherry, cinnamon and a hint of star anise.
An Organic wine that pairs well with Tuscan appetisers, red meat and game.Learn More£17.50
Often considered one of Italy's greatest wines, Barolo is definitely one of the most famous and a must try for it's classic tar and roses aromas. This Barolo from the Rocca estate is a classic, dry and austere, autumnal Nebbiolo from this famous Piemonte region. It will delight with its intense bouquet of mature red fruit and tobacco and the ethereal "Tar and Roses" of classic mature Barolo. It is at the lighter end of the Barolo spectrum and fully mature, so expect a more gamey style well suited to roast pheasant, aged beef and other fine meat courses.Learn More£22.50
