Sacchetto Pinot Nero Trevenezie is a ripe, juicy unoaked Pinot from Italy's Veneto region. With fresh cherry and raspberry flavours, Sacchetto's is the best Pinot Noir we've tasted at this price. A light to medium bodied wine that pairs well with roasted white meats and pasta dishes.
Campo Bastiglia Valpolicella Ripasso from Ca'Rugate has concentrated aromas of red fruit cherries with a hint of spice and floral notes, together with a full bodied palate with soft tannins, an elegant silky texture and a velvety finish.
Incredibly rich and intense, this wine is undoubtedly one of the greatest Valpolicellas. Tiny vineyard yields give a hugely concentrated wine, and 50% of the berries are dried on racks for 20 days to intensify the wine's flavours, resulting in a lovely concentration with a spicy flavour and balanced freshness showing vibrant bitter cherries.
Roccolo Grassi Recioto della Valpolicella received 92 Points from world-famous Robert Parker in Feb 2011. He wrote: "Blackberry preserves, jammy blueberries, spices and new leather take shape nicely in the glass."
Intense garnet red in colour. Concentrated aromas of ripe blueberries, blackberries and cherries are enhanced with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is rich, full bodied and complex, beautifully balanced and lingering.
Plums and baked cherries on the nose with hints of bay leaf. Magnificently rich and soft on the palate with rich cherry and blueberry flavours and some sweet spice. Long, dry finish with a touch of fresh blueberries.
A rich and opulent wine, showing intense aromas of ripe dark berried fruits with a hint of bitter almond. Beautifully concentrated deep fruits are layered with nuances of elegant oak and savoury notes, through to a smooth palate, with supple tannins and a fine, lingering finish.
