6 exceptional bottles of red from famous & classic regions of the world.
Montepulciano from Abruzzo, Italy.
Rioja from Spain.
Beaujolais from France.
Bordeaux from France.
Chianti from Tuscany, Italy.
Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina.
Villa Enzo Montepulciano – There is no influence of oak so this purple/ruby coloured wine offers pure, vibrant aromas of red cherry fruit. The satisfying palate is rich with juicy fruit & very approachable, soft tannins.
Jean Michel Dupre Beaujolais – Dark ruby in colour with notes of sweet raspberry on the nose. The palate has fresh black cherry and red berries with a mineral character on the finish.
La Bicicletta Veladora – A smooth, bright style of unoaked, modern, Rioja. This wine is all about the fruit, ripe red berries and plum with subtle spice & finely structured tannins.
Chateau Lauretan Bordeaux – Predominantly Merlot backed up by Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a small dose of Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot. This is an organic red aged in a combination of oak barrels & stainless steel tanks, the resulting wine possesses a fine nose with aromas of red berries, leading to a supple & elegant palate.
When We Dance Chianti – Aromas of ripe black cherries, sandalwood, cedar & strawberry compote. Texturally even & balanced bright acidity, juicy fruits & a joyful, lingering sense of the vineyards at Il Palagio.
Man Meets Mountain Malbec – Full bodied, juicy with blackcurrant, bramble & plum fruit. Touch of tannin but overall a rich, rounded wine with great mouthfeel.
