  • Conte Di Campiano Squinzano Riserva 2013

    Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found the wonderfully complex and full-bodied wines. This Squinzano Riserva is made from 100% Negroamaro. On opening, this is a closed but clearly very powerful wine, as it opens, citrus, pepper and Christmas spices emerge along with dark fruits and savoury complexities. This is a big wine that gets better the longer...

  • Conte Di Campiano Susumaniello 2015

    Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found this wonderfully decadent, full bodied, plush and complex beast made from one of the world’s rarest varieties – Susumaniello. The word itself comes from Susu meaning “Go” and Maniello, meaning “Donkey” perhaps because in their youth, Susumaniello vines produce massive yields. As the vines age, the...

  • Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Lagrein 2017

    This Lagrein is every bit as good as the previous edition and marks the 3rd vintage of this wine which is properly world class, better even than most we have tasted from Lagreins homeland in Bozen. It’s bursting at the seams with blue and black fruits, red fruit acidity and plentiful fine tannins. Needs perhaps 6 months to settle into a groove, alternately double decant it is you are going to...

  • Hesketh Small Parcels Barossa Valley Negroamaro 2016

    A brilliantly dark and deep follow on from the 2014 and 2015 releases of this wine. The 16 is perhaps the best yet, offering a perfumed and spiced nose. The palate offers blue fruits, cherries, spice, cola, plum and herbs. Medium bodied and absolutely lip smacking. We’re predicting this one will find its way into many a staff...

  • Purple Hands Wines Aglianico 2017

    Just so good – medium bodied with crunchy fruit and acid. Rose, liquorice, spice sweet fruit and plenty of fine tannins here. 18 months in old oak for this one, which helped the plentiful tannins to soften and has allowed full display of the vibrant fruits. This might not sound like a big red but it is definitely worth busting out a big fillet steak, seasoning with salt and a little white...

  • Serafino Bellissimo Tempranillo 2018

    Bright red and purple fruits, blueberry, liquorice and a hint of rhubarb. An evocative nose and an expressive pallet. Medium bodied in a way which will please fanciers of the more delicate and yet appeal to those who like their wines to come out ‘dukes up’. Fruit is strong and bright, acid plentiful, the finish mouthwatering.h. Fortunately the wines themselves have layers too. Soft, yet...

    Deep and supple with generous fruits, lifted florals and good structure. Medium bodied with a nod towards full, with plenty of acidity and refined oak. Get your gaucho on and have this with something meaty… like a pork ribeye, or a mixed grill with chicken, pork, chorizo and morcilla, or a jolly big dry aged fillet steak served rare with a Malbec...

  • Willunga 100 Tempranillo 2016

    This is a properly lip smacking Tempranillo. Aromas of black cherries, musk, plum, spice and coffee. The palate is big but balanced, with more cherry, spice and some blackberries too. Old French oak provides a little cedar and there is plenty of acid and fine tannin providing structure here....
