    Cataldo Calabretta Cirò 2018

    Cirò is one of those wonderful regionally-specific wines made with a grape called Gaglioppo that you will hardly ever find outside of Calabria. A little like Nebbiolo in the sense that it pours a pale ruby in the glass, yet impresses with an...

  • Principiano Ferdinando Serralunga Barolo 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Principiano Ferdinando Serralunga Barolo 2018

    In the prized vineyards of the Barolo DOCG it is rare to find producers that are making wine without the addition of at least a small amount of suphur in the cellar - Principiano Ferdinando have eschewed it since the early 2000s. The vines, in Serralunga...

  • Pacina Canaiolo 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Pacina Canaiolo 2018

    Canaiolo is one of the blending grapes in Chianti, but the DO does not recognise it when it is turned into wine on its own. A curiosity then, but one that makes so much sense! The grape has good structure, but has aromatic lift. Bags of pure, inky fruit...

    Jean-Yves Peron I Vicini Barbera 2019

    La Stoppa Trebbiolo 2020

    One of our go-to bottles when we want a decent vino de tavola to accompany a hearty feast of rich Emilia-style cuisine. There is something about the wine from this part of Italy - the savoury character, the high acidity - that makes it such a...

    Vini Rabasco Cancelli Rosso 2020

    It’s pleasure all the way with this particularly generous Montepulciano that takes the term ‘fruit-driven’ to new levels. A real cherry-bomb explosion - red and black, sour, even in confected cherry drop form too. The juice is also...
