Hello, I’m Rob Hoult and here is our Taste Of Italy case. From east to west and north to south every part of Italy is planted with vines and this creates an incredible diversity of styles. Add to this a good few thousand years of wine making and it’s no wonder that some of the greatest wines on planet Earth come from Italy. This is a whirlwind tour of styles and varieties but given that there are over 1,000 different grape varieties in Italy it can only show so much.

The wines we sell don’t come off a never-ending production line, so there is always a tiny chance that one of the wines in the curated cases drops out of stock. If this happens, we will replace the missing wine with a one of similar style and always a higher value; we don’t want you to lose out here. The tasting notes in the case will change accordingly, and you’ll still have amazing wine.

What's inside?

The white wines

Miopasso ‘Appasimento’ Grillo, Sicily £14
The Appasimento method of slightly drying the fruit is mainly used on red wines where it adds up-front fruitiness and a touch of sweetness too. With white wines, it works differently and adds texture and richness. Honeyed notes with orange peel and dried fruits and a little nuttiness, this has been consistently one of my favourite Italian whites and represents phenomenal value too.

Castel del Lupo Pinot Grigio, Lombardia £14.50
What a wine! You pour this in the glass, and it’s so pale it looks like mineral water, but then you stick your nose in the glass and, BOOM! This is next-level Pinot Grigio, so fresh yet so vibrant and fleshy with incredible purity of fruit. This grape may be synonymous with everyday non-descript whites, but this wine proves just what can be done when you use the best possible fruit.

Gavi la Battistina, Piedmont £15
This wine hasn’t skipped a beat in the more than two decades that I’ve been drinking it. Every year, it shows a wonderful, rounded, balanced, fleshy complexity. Lemon peel, green apples and grapes with a little note of spring blossom. I’ve always likened this to a quality Chablis, and it still ticks that box.

The red wines

Passo del Cardinale Primitivo di Manduria, Puglia £16
Multi award-winning Primitivo from Manduria, which is the heart of Primitivo country. A richer, bolder and more complex version of this grape than you would normally find. Lashings of rich black cherry fruit and fabulous structure, but there’s also real approachability too. It’s the best Primitivo out there, in my opinion.

Montresor Organic Corvina, Veneto £12.50
Sometimes you want a red wine with a lighter touch, and Veneto is home to plenty of them, especially the famous wines of Valpolicella. This little project from Montresor sees them focus solely on the Corvina grape, and they’ve gone all organic with it, too. This wine really brings out that super fresh, bright cherry fruit with a slatey minerality, too. The backbone of acidity is perfect, and serve this a little cooler with some cold cuts, and you’ll be very, very happy.

Il Cascinone ‘Crocera’ Barbera d’Asti, Piedmont £14
Barbera is the ‘other’ grape variety in Piedmont and is the friendlier sibling to Nebbiolo. It’s softer, warmer, rounder and more approachable. The Il Cascinone estate sits on the hills of Monferrato, and whilst they make lovely Merlot, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it is Barbera that dominates and for good reason. This wine is all aromas of ripe black cherry, damson and toasty spice. A rich palate with plum and sour cherry fruit, juicy acidity, and notes of dark chocolate on the finish.
