New Italian Wines

Following their respective successes in our Sampling Club three wines have made it into the main list this spring and we’ve added in a couple of other new Italians for good measure.  They’re already on the website so you can buy wine online…
The 2011 OSA from Maremma in Tuscany is a Sangiovese dominated blend from the Fattoria Quercegrossa which is located between Magliano in Toscana and the sea of Talamone - a stretch of vineyards with two enormous oak trees at its centre from where you can glimpse the sea. Here, in Maremma, Bruna Baroncini produces a different expression of the Sangiovese grape with spicy fruit and soft tannins – a great Italian all-rounder.

Secondly, there’s the 2009 Crocera Barbera d’Asti Superiore which has authentic notes of damson, smoke and spices; a fantastic expression of Piemontese Barbera which was so popular with customers when we featured it last December.

A more recent favourite on the Sampling Club is Cavit’s solution to the soaring price of Pinot Grigio grapes in the form of the Principato Pinot-Grigio/Chardonnay blend from Veneto which combines the fresh stone fruit characters of Pinot-Grigio with a touch of ripeness and comes in at a price significantly lower than the straight Pinot-Grigios we list.

The two other additions to our Italian range are a superb Verdicchio from Monte Schiavo, a modern and dynamic producer in the heart of the region and the Nebbiolo d’Alba from Poderi Colla.  JH visited the Poderi Colla winery last year and was very taken with the wines he tasted.  We have featured their Barbera d’Alba recently but found space in the main list for their Nebbiolo which, at £15.50, is a fraction of the price of Barolo or Barbaresco yet the equal of many.  You can read more about JH’s visit to Poderi Colla here.
What we love about our new flexible buying regime at Wines of Interest is the opportunities it provides us with to tune into new wines as we find them rather than having to wait to include them in our annual printed list.  We can sniff out new discoveries and take advantage on suppliers' promotions as, and when, they appear by adding them to our website where you can buy wine online and either have it delivered to your door, or collect it from our shop.  You can buy these wines online now - click here to start shopping!
