MAZZEI POGGIO ALLA BADIOLA 2006

Regular price €16.95 SLASHED TO €.13.56 (SAVE 20%)

This Tuscan IGT has a deep inky purple hue and great extraction. At the palate the wine is an explosion of wild berries and cocoa. It is soft, intense, persistent, balanced and it shows creamy, well integrated tannins. Summing up, it seems to drink like a much more expensive wine. This is a wonderful wine to enjoy with all different kinds of food: rich and creamy pasta dishes, grilled meats and barbecue. It is a wine suited for those who are slowly transitioning their palate from new world to old world wines. Excellent value for the money.
GLAETZER THE WALLACE SHIRAZ GRENACHE 2006

Regular price €18.95 SLASHED TO €15.16 (SAVE 20%)

91-94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2006 Wallace, tasted from a barrel sample, is a 70% Shiraz, 30% Grenache blend with an identical oak treatment. The 2006 is more structured than the 2005 but they could otherwise pass as identical twins. Hats off to Ben Glaetzer for producing an extraordinary portfolio! The renowned winemaker, Ben Glaetzer, sources all of his fruit for this label from the Ebenezer district in the northern Barossa. Many knowledgeable experts cite this sub-region as the finest in the Valley.”


TRIMBACH RIESLING 2007

Regular price €17.95 SLASHED TO €14.36 (SAVE 20%)

According to Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 08: Pure, subdued aromas of citrus peel, flowers and menthol. Pure and intense for this basic-level riesling, with good grip to the very dry flavors of white peach, lemon, flowers and minerals. Finishes with good length and focus.

DOMAINE DE LA COTE D’ADULE FLEURIE, 2006

Regular price €16.95 SLASHED TO €13.56 (SAVE 20%)

Fleurie stands for “flowery” and fleurie is often considered as the Queen of Beaujolais. This perfectly describes what the wine is: floral aromas, charming and elegant. Fleurie is a very fruity wine, and this wine is no exception. Made from 100% Gamay, the grape of choice in Beaujolais, this wine has an inviting fruity and floral bouquet. The palate is medium bodied and with hints of raspberry and strawberry. This wine is best served slightly chilled.

IL POGGIONE ‘LO SBRANCATO’ TOSCANA ROSE 2008

Regular price €13.95 SLASHED TO €11.16 (SAVE 20%)

Lo Sbrancato is a rosè wine produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes that Il Poggione started to make because they did not have a white wine in their portfolio and they wanted to introduce a wine that could differ from their production of traditional red wines. This is also the reason behind its name; in fact like a stray horse (cavallo sbrancato) that runs away from the herd, their ‘Sbrancato’ wanders from the classic typology of their wines. After harvesting by hand and the de-stemming, the skins are in contact with the must for 24 hours, and then the wine ferments for 25 days at 12°C with the purpose of exalting the flavours. It’s a fresh and fruity wine that combines the flavours of a great white wine with the structure of a young Sangiovese.
