Organic Wine Selection
A fabulous hamper for the wine buff! This is a lovely collection of our favourite organic Italian wines and includes three organic reds (Fatalone, Euganean Hills and Chianti), two whites (a Tuscan Chardonnay and a Falanghina DOC) and a bottle of our ever-popular organic, biodynamic, natural Prosecco.
Fatalone Primitivo Riserva (750cl) Fatalone Riserva 2017 is a DOC wine (100% Primitivo grapes) from the Puglia region of south-eastern Italy. This fantastic red was awarded both the prestigious Decanter Bronze prize and Le Corone 2015 ViniBuoni d'Italia. It is a natural wine, fermented with indigenous yeast and aged 12 months in stainless steel tanks, 12 months in oak casks and 6 months in bottle. Intense ruby red in colour with slight burgundy hues, it has a scent typical of very ripe fruits and slightly toasted wood and spices with some balsamic notes. This Primitivo goes well with strong flavoured dishes such as pasta with meat sauce, roast beef, grilled meats, fish and aged cheese. Also wonderful with dark chocolates. Alcohol: 15%. Vegan.
Euganean Hills DOC (750cl) Deep ruby red in colour with violet hues, this red wine from the Euganean Hills in Northern Italy is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Slightly grassy on the nose, it has shades of red fruit such as currant and raspberry. The taste is herbaceous with hints of red fruit, round and fruity. Year 2018, Alcohol 12.5%.
Chianti Superiore Poggio ai Grilli (750cl) This characterful, lively Chianti from the powerful 2018 vintage is a Gold Medal winner which has been rated one of the best value for money wine by the UK Sommelier Association. Made from organically grown, manually harvested sangiovese grapes cultivated in the province of Arezzo, this wine belongs to the Chianti Colli Aretini DOCG denomination, one of the 7 Chianti DOCG's appellations. Due to the vintage, it has significantly more fullness and spice than its predecessor, and relies on intensity. Made with grapes from old vineyards and then aged in big oak barrels, this Chianti is a great red wine with a complex bouquet with hints of cherry, violet and spices. Full, fruity, smooth, with soft tannins and a long aftertaste. Year 2018, Alcohol 13.5%. Vegan.
Chardonnay Quarto di Luna (750cl) This is a lovely, elegant and light Tuscan Chardonnay. It has warm straw-yellow nuances, with sparkling reflections in the glass and lively presence. Flavourful aromas of pineapple, ripe peach and passion fruit are rounded by a floral touch and gentle minerality, overall dry and with a good complexity. Fresh, lively and soft on the palate with a satisfying clean finish, this is. a perfect every-day summer white, great as an aperitif wine. Year 2019, Alcohol 13.5%. Vegan.
Prosecco Colfondo (750cl) This organic, bio-dynamic, natural, vegan Prosecco DOC has been made in the Veneto region of Italy with traditional farming techniques, completely organic viticulture and very low intervention. Forget fungicides, pesticides, herbicides on the vines, this wine is pure, kind to the planet and very possibly better for your health. Alcohol 10.5%
Falanghina Rami DOC Organic (750cl) Falanghina is an ancient grape, probably imported to the regions of Campania and Molise by Roman merchants. This golden organic wine has good acidity and fine, delicate fruity notes and a broad and pleasantly bitter aftertaste that recalls pomegranate. Perfect with simply prepared, super-fresh fish dishes, such as grilled anchovies, chargrilled squid and clams tossed with garlic and pasta. Great too with pork, seafood pasta dishes and vegetable and tomato sauces. Year 2018. Alcohol: 13%.
