Woodshire Selections: Italian Classics

Regular price £89.00 Sale

Our View:

This selection is for lovers of Italian wines! We’ve teamed up the three grand classics of Italian wines for you to enjoy - Barolo, Brunello di Montalcino and Gavi di Gavi. 

Cossetti have been producing quality wines since 1891 and it’s their Gavi di Gavi DOCG made from the indigenous Cortese grape that we start with. An excellent aperitif, this fresh, dry and crisp example is best tasted with cold hors d'oeuvres and dishes based on fish, molluscs and crustaceans. 

A classic Brunello from one of Montalcino’s historic properties, the Caparzo 2012 is aged for 3 years in the traditional 80 hectolitre Slavonian and 50 hectolitre French oak, followed by at 1 year ageing in bottle before the wine is released. This wine is well regarded by the critics, regularly scoring over 90 points. The wine boasts an interesting level of flavour complexity and good balance. It has a complex and ample bouquet of wild berry fruit, tea leaf and orange peel - coupled with fine tannins it’s a great wine to enjoy. 

Perhaps the most famous and historic of Piedmont wines, Barolo is renowned and appreciated around the world, produced from Nebbiolo grapes. Also from Cossetti, it is a magnificent red delivering a refined wine with a garnet red colour and orangish highlights that intensify over time. Intense aromas of red and violet fruit with a fully ample and velvety flavour and a spicy, light vanilla finish. 

We can’t always holiday in Italy but this is the next best way to experience it!!
