After a flying visit to the dramatic, mountainous landscape surrounding the small town of Cerreto Sannita in Campania earlier this year, we are happy to let you know that the first of the new releases we tasted there with the ever-cordial Antonio Gismondi are now here with us in Leeds.
From a long-running family of vignaiolo, Fabio Ferracane has lived in Marsala on Sicily’s west coast his whole life. We’ve long been seduced by the distinctive wines of this diverse Italian island, so when we met with Fabio we were excited to find he was following the same path as some of the producers of the region we hold in the highest regard, creating wines that express their environment by channelling the sun and the sea.
We've long been fascinated by the wines of Sicily, particularly those from its lesser-travelled outposts. We're now so pleased to introduce Bbirbiciù, an exciting new producer on the remote volcanic island of Pantelleria, who are doing magical things with local white grape Zibibbo.
