White and Rosé

The Dea del Mare & Principato Pinot Grigios are both superb, lively whites with a zippy charm; the Gavi ‘La Battistina’ offers fabulous value for money with clean stonefruit flavours. The Miopasso Fiano from Sicily is a supremely exotic beast with a wonderful aroma of mango and honey. The Dea del Mare Pinot Grigio Rosé comes from northern Italy and is fruity but not too sweet like so manyblush Pinot Grigios.

VENETO

We have the new Baccolo ‘Appassimento’ which has a delicious richness from partially dried grapes. The range from  Cantina di Negrar is classic Valpolicella and they were the inventors of the ‘appassimento’ system of dried grapes that gives Amarone its wonderfully rich and complex flavours.
