Italy is to some degree shrouded in mystery, with many relatively unknown indigenous grape varieties producing wines which often remain under the radar. There are of course many recognizable and great wines, such as Barolo, Amarone, Chianti and Brunello. We are pleased to bring you a diverse and growing range and an increasing number direct from the domaines.
Produced from Barbera grapes grown in vineyards in the South of the province of Asti in Piemonte (North West of Italy). Grapes are hand harvested then the grapes are arrived in the winery into stainless steel tanks for the fermentation process.
The wine is then matured for 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks
A fresh dry white from North East Italy, with gentle floral and citrus aromas. Crisp and delicate on the palate with orchard fruit and lightly honeyed notes, balanced by lemony acidity and a fresh, dry finish.
A highly versatile dry white, ideal as an aperitif or to accompany foods such as seafood, grilled fish, salads and cold white meats.
The I Frati from Ca Dei Frati is known as the image of the company and is the first wine they created, it continues to be one of the most popular. This is a wine that can be enjoyed young, for a fresh palate with flavours of apricot and almonds. With a little age it evolves, the flavours become more intense and complex with a hint of spice.
From the Pavia region of northwest Italy, the grapes are hand harvested - Pinot Grigio's pink tinge is further enhanced by the addition of a small proportion of Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyards.
The pale coral pink wine yields strawberry and bramble aromas leading onto a delicate, yet juicy palate with red berry characters. Slight creaminess leads to a crisp dry finish.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or to accompany salads, cold meats such as salami or smoked chicken or seafood dishes.
