There is something about Italian wine. I get a warm and fuzzy feeling just thinking about it.
I love the diversity; how distinct and quirky the wines can be (Aglianico anyone?) whilst beautifully representing the regions in which they're made. From the elegant, retrained and beautifully structured wines of northern Italy such as Barolo, Barbera and Arneis, through to the very appealing ripe and juicy wines made from grapes such as Nero d'Avola and Primitivo which come from the warm southern part of the country. Whether elegant or rustic, they all reflect their heritage, local culture and most of all the food with which they were designed to be enjoyed with.
And I think it is this convivial element which I personally find so appealing about Italian wine - the knowledge that these wines have always been made to be enjoyed with food, shared with family, or, ideally both.
And today I'm pleased that we can share with you a fabulous selection of Italian wines - from the deliciously ripe and fruity 2017 Pinot Grigio from Artigiano to the robust, full flavoured Nativ Blu Onice Irpinia Aglianico DOC 2015, plus an amazing selection of Prosecco all of which deliver great flavours without breaking the bank.
