Vigneto San Lorenzo Rosso Conero Umani Ronchi 2014 (1x 75cl)

San Lorenzo takes its name from the vineyard of the same name in the municipality of Osimo from which it originates. With its outstanding impact in terms of flavour and the enfolding warmth of its rounded tannins, it is a wine which is intended to express all the potential of the combination between its terroir and the Montepulciano varietal. These characteristics are augmented by the contribution from the oak lasks which are kept in the picturesque cave at Osimo, in which San Lorenzo is aged. 

The harvest is carried out by hand and normally takes place in the period from the end of September to the end of the first ten days of October. The grapes are destalked and lightly pressed, then undergo maceration for 10- 12 days in steel fermentation vats. As soon as the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine starts the malolactic fermentation. The wine then moves on to the ageing process. About 50% is aged in 5000-8000 litre oak lasks, and the rest in barriques on their third or fourth time of use, for a period of about 12 months. After assemblage, San Lorenzo rests in bottle for a further 6 months.

A rich, fruity and fully flavoured nose. On the palate it is smooth and mellow with a full, elegant, savoury character and a persistent, finely grained array of well integrated tannins, excellent balance and a firm, persistent finish.

Food matches for this wine include Venison and redcurrant sausages with spinach and Stilton mash, wild boar and porcini risotto, a mixed grill or any barbecued food will all benefit.

£11.80

A Mano Imprint Primitivo Appassito 2015 (1x 75cl)

A deeply coloured wine with exuberant perfumes of ripe red and black berry fruits, with notes of spice from the oak ageing. Made in the style of an Amarone, it is concentrated and opulent on the palate, with great balance. It is elegant, velvety and supple

£12.90

A Mano Negroamaro 2016 (1x 75cl)

Deep coloured with a concentrated chocolate and dark plum perfume and a touch of liquorice that gives way to a full-bodied and powerful palate.  Dark red fruit dominates the palate with the characteristic tannin of Negroamaro which melts into a long, chocolately finish.

£10.65

Accordini Amarone Classico Acinatico DOC 2014 (1x 75cl)

Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.

£31.44

Accordini Valpolicella Classico Doc 2016 (1x75cl)

Intense ruby red with a bouquet of red cherries, spice and vanilla. Full bodied on the palate, warming, fruit-forward with juicy cherries and a floral twist.

£10.90

Accordini Valpolicella Classico Ripasso Acinatico Doc 2015 (1x75cl)

Intense ruby red with a bouquet of red cherries, spice and vanilla. Full bodied on the palate, warming, fruit-forward with juicy cherries and a floral twist.

Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre Igt 2014 (1x75cl)

Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest gateau. This wine has good body and an ageing potential of at least ten years. It has a smooth and velvety character, with mature, pulpy fruit character and delicious raisin flavours.

£17.55

Allegrini Valpolicella 2016 (1x75cl)

Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and its genetic cousin Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. Whilst young, the Valpolicella is impressively lively and playful on the palate and will express greater delicacy and finesse with two or more years of ageing.

£12.95

Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and its genetic cousin Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. Whilst young, the Valpolicella is impressively lively and playful on the palate and will express greater delicacy and finesse with two or more years of ageing.

£8.20

Alpha Zeta `R` Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2015 (1x75cl)

Ruby red in colour, with a concentrated perfume of red and black cherries, with the ripasso adding a dried cherry intensity. Full-bodied on the palate, with lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure.  Good length with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist on the finish.  

£13.20

Alpha Zeta 'A' Amarone 2014 (1x75cl)

The previoius (2013) vintage was awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of Amarones (see blue link below). The 2014 is of excellent - probably better - quality in our view.

Alpha Zeta 2013  - May 2017 Decanter review

The vineyards are situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is a mixture of clay and limestone with good drainage. The vineyards are south-facing and therefore warmer than other parts of Valpolicella.

One of the best harvests in recent years, the grapes in 2013 enjoyed gradual ripening thanks to excellent sunlight rather than heat.

Selected grapes were picked in mid September and left to dry in specially ventilated rooms until the end of January. During this time the grapes lost about 40% of their natural weight. The grapes were destemmed and crushed at the end of January. Fermentation temperature was between 18°-22°C with daily periodic pumping over, while the length of maceration was 20 days. This Amarone was matured in oak (a mixture of large 'botti' and French oak barriques) for 18 months before bottling.

Deep and intense on the nose with perfumes of dried cherries and blueberries, with notes of spiced autumn fruit compote.  On the palate it is powerful but modern, with a lovely balance of ripe tannins and spiced, concentrated savoury cherry fruit character.  A touch of woodsmoke completes the long finish.

£23.00

Alpha Zeta Corvina 2015 (1x75cl)

Ruby red colour with a youthful rim and perfumes of ripe, fresh cherries and red berries.  Nicely balanced and juicy on the palate, with a supple structure and attractive lively finish.
