  • Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2016 NZD $49.95 NZD $39.95
    There is Chianti and there is Chianti… but this is super Chianti Classico! Old fashioned with wonderful saline flavours, medium to full-bodied with aromas of prosciutto, cypress and dry meats. When we said there is Chianti and there is Chianti, we mean this is the true classical style being dry, high acidity, beautifully perfumed, lovely balance and almost seductive, once you try it you always go back to it!... more »
  • Castellare di Castellina I Sodi di San Niccolo 2013 NZD $139.95 NZD $119.95
    “The 2013 I Sodi di S. Niccolò is 85% Sangioveto (a more antique name for Sangiovese) and 15% Malvasia Nera from a single vineyard. This wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance and shows ruby, garnet and purple highlights. The bouquet is powerful but seamless at the same time with smooth transitions between dark cherry, spice, tobacco and moist clay. In the mouth, this wine shows dense extraction, but it never feels too weighed down by that mass. Instead, the freshness of the fruit and the natural acidity give the wine a bright and buoyant personality. Aged in barrique for 30 months, this is a delightful Tuscan red. - Monica Larner” -- 96/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate... more »

    Renzo Masi, with over 150 years of experience in Tuscany, he obviously knows how to make Chianti.

    Straccali dating back to 1925 has been producing excellent Chianti and of course superb Pinot Grigio.

  • Straccali Toscana Rosso 2015 NZD $18.95 NZD $17.95
    2015 is a stunning vintage in Tuscany as in most of Italy. Made from Sangiovese, the native grape of Tuscany, responsible for producing stunning Chiantis. This is just a straight Sangiovese from Tuscany but is really what a good Sangiovese should be. Medium to full bodied, hints of leather, dry herbs, almost slightly salty with beautiful supple tannins. Excellent now but will also improve for 2-3 years.... more »
  • Tenuta Dell Ornellaia "Masseto" 2006 NZD $794.95 Out of Stock
    "This set of new releases from Tenuta dell Ornellaia leaves me looking for words that can adequately capture the pure magic and sheer profoundness the property has achieved in this important, hallmark vintage. I will try with one word: Monumental. The Ornellaia team has done a fabulous job with these wines, which have never failed to literally send shivers down my spine on the multiple occasions I have tasted them. I can still remember nearly falling out of my chair the first time I tasted the 2006 Masseto (100% Merlot) from barrel. The wine is now in bottle and it is every bit as monumental as I had hoped. The wine possesses staggering richness in a style that perfectly captures the essence of this great Tuscan vintage. Black cherries, flowers, licorice and sweet toasted oak are just some of the nuances that emerge from the 2006 Masseto. A wine of breathtaking depth, it also reveals superb clarity, freshness and vibrancy in a sumptuous, beautifully-balanced style. Simply put, the 2006 Masseto is a masterpiece from Tenuta dell Ornellaia. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031." 99/100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.... more »
