If one thing’s for sure, Prosecco is loved by all! But there is Prosecco and Prosecco and Ruggeri is definitely one of our favourites.
Located in the famed Santo Stefano village in the heart of the Prosecco wine region, the Ruggeri winery is overlooking the dramatic, dream-like beauty of the steep slopes dotted with century old Glera vines.
This splendid hilly area enjoys a unique blend of climate, soil and exposure producing the best quality grapes of the entire appellation hence resulting in wines with the finest texture, concentration and the greatest length.
Ruggeri is a family owned winery with a centuries-old tradition in viticulture but it’s also considered a benchmark for quality Prosecco.
Ruggeri’s beautiful Prosecco is bursting with fruity and floral aromas of green apple, pear and lemon finishing with a touch of almond which adds complexity. Crisp acidity and persistent fine bubbles lead into a dry, refreshing finish. In 2 words? Graceful and vibrant.
Perfect as an aperitif and ideal with fish, this wine goes particularly well with hors d’oeuvres and light first courses.
Fresh in taste and color! Sgajo means smart and exuberant. So is this organic sparkling wine, a delicately sweet and aromatic version of an Extra Dry Prosecco. Sparkling limpidity, fine and persistent perlage, pale straw yellow colour. Showing fruity flavours with notes of apple, apricot and some banana. On the palate there is a great freshness, long and persistent flavour, bitter aftertaste and a very drinkable scent of pear. Pairs well with ethnic dishes based on raw fish and rice or vegetable dishes and vegan cuisine.
Mazzano is an austere and majestic wine, the prototype for Amarone. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, famous for the quality of its produce since the XII century, and are laid out in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.
Another single vineyard that is quite different to the Campolongo, slightly more austere, concentrated and less giving on its youth. However after about 10-15 years it develops into a complex, powerful and rich wine with beautiful smooth velvety texture that is capable of again up to 20 years.
Campolongo di Torbe is Masi’s elegant cru version of Amarone, with smooth almond aromas, great intensity and balance. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, which has been noted for its quality since the XII century. Grapes are left to dry naturally in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.
Amarone and more so single vineyards are one of the most unique and rare wines in the world known for their aging capacity, they are very full bodied wines with intense flavours, power and concentration. Even at 9 years old it is still relatively young. The palate is full with aromas of toasted almonds, sweet coca, a touch of caramel and baked brioche. Approachable now or cellar for 15-20 years.
Scents of ripe stone fruits lead to a dry, smooth and intense palate with subtle notes of white blossoms, citrus zest, and a touch of toasted bread and elegant, fine bubbles fills the mouth with creamy texture. Energetic and clean, Col Vetoraz Prosecco complements a wide variety of foods, making it an ideal to pour with appetizers, salads, even brunch! Located in Cartizze, one of the prime areas of the Valdobbiadene region of the Veneto, Col Vetoraz grows its grapes organically at about 1,300 feet above sea level on very steep hills in vineyard sites where the Prosecco, or Glera, grape has grown since 1838. The grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and wine enjoys a second fermentation in tank in the “Charmat” method.
Prosecco has been a traditional sparkling wine enjoyed in Italy for centuries, the lovely aromatic flavours, freshness and racy acidity is what is so attractive about it. Lovely aromas of apple, pear and melon with freshness and a pick me up lift which is almost addictive this is what lovely Prosecco should be. If you’re new to it… don’t wait any longer.
It’s difficult to find an outstanding red wine from Veneto of this quality. Made from the classical grapes of the region which are Corvina Veronese, Corvinone and Rondinella and obtained by partly drying the grapes this red wine has a dark red colour with garnet tinges, a velvety, full-bodied and sapid palate. Serve at 16-18°C. Try with roasts, game and seasoned cheese. Will also cellar for 4-5 years plus.
North Eastern Italy has historically produced outstanding Pinot Grigio in fact among the very best in the world and always incredibly well priced. This is superb, it’s exactly what you would expect from a top notch Pinot Grigio, full bodied, crisp, fresh, flinty, aged on its lees for a few months so with great substance and concentration, just stunning!
Also produced from the prosecco grape in the Charmat method, this wine is delightfully smooth, fresh and well balanced with plenty of light refreshing bubbles and drier than the dry. A multiple award winning wine of great distinction.
Our new arrival of our most popular Pinot Grigio, we have literally sold 100s of cases and once you try it is quite easy to understand why. The north east of Italy where this particular Pinot Grigio is from produces some outstanding cool climate white wines. It is crisp, light and delicate, slightly oily with hints of Turkish delight, pine nuts and some lovely acidity. If you are tired of semi-sweet heavy Pinot Gris, this is for you, refreshing, flinty and mineral, excellent with food or without and drinking well now or over the next couple of years.
From the region of Veneto, northern Italy, Carpene Malvolti has been producing sparkling wine since 1860, one of the longest histories in the production of sparkling wine. This is made from Pinot Nero and Raboso. The blend of these two varieties along with a slow fermentation in pressurised tanks has produced an intensely perfumed and floral wine. Wonderful refined bubbles with a delicate bouquet yet full rounded flavour, bright pink in colour with crimson highlights, very refreshing, vibrant and fresh.
