Gargenega Pinot Grigio, Ancora 2010

If you’re looking for a light, easy to drink wine then this is the choice for you. Pinot Grigio now accounts for 40 per cent of the UK’s white wine sales and is an increasingly popular choice. This wine blends Pinot Grigio with Garganega, the most important variety of white wine grape grown in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza.

This wine is refreshing, light in colour and very easy to drink. With aromas of limes, grapefruits and lemons this is a typical Italian white wine with characterful yeasty notes and slightly honeyed fruit. The perfect refreshing accompaniment to a beautiful summer’s evening.

Mirabello Pinot Grigio Rose, Ancora 2010

This superb rose is our best summer seller and is perfect for all lovers of Pinot Grigio. A lovely blend of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir, this is a fresh, fruity and slightly off-dry rose. It has an aroma of red berries and cherry and a delicate, summer fruit finish. This crisp and lively rose is the perfect aperitif, and also goes well with summer food such as light salads, pasta or summer pudding with cream.

Verdicchio, Coste del Molina, Monte Schiavo, Marches 2010

Verdicchio is a white Italian grape variety grown primarily in the central Marche region of the country. The name derives from ‘verde’ (green) and refers to the slight green/yellow hue that the wines have.

This lovely, stylish white wine has full, intense aromas of lime, grapefruit and pineapple and a fresh, dry palate, full of citrus fruit right through to its attractive finish.

The Sangiovese region

Rosso Piceno, Sassaiolo, Marche 2007

A blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano, this is a beautiful red, fruity wine combined with the savouriness and soft oak structure of Sangiovese. The fruit flavours are preserved through the wine ageing in large oak casks, making this a great value, delicious wine.Indeed, we rate it as one of the best value Italian reds that we have tried.
