Single vineyard Soave Classico from a top class producer, Guerrieri Rizzardi; medium to full-bodied with an interesting combination of rich fruits and mineral backbone. A pretty serious wine with a silky texture
If you are a fan of Barolo, you will love this wine; same Nebbiolo grape but this wine is unoaked; cherries, chocolate and violet on a long smooth finish
A Pinot Blanc with real character, complex yet amazingly fresh; subtle apple and pear bouquet with hints of lime. Lovely and velvety in the mouth with a long dry finish
A lighter alternative to Amarone. Very concentrated, full of intense flavours but more medium- than full-bodied and less rich. Very smooth... delicious!
Classic Chianti Classico Riserva with mouth-watering acidity and typical Sangiovese sour cherry flavours. A fabulously smooth & delicious Tuscan wine that gives you no room for complaints...
This is a really lovely example of a Gavi, elegant in structure, and very versatile in terms of foods with which to serve it. La Rocca refers to the soils which give the wine a lovely mineral complexity

This Italian Classics mixed case showcases three red and three white Italian wines (two bottles of each), all of which are classics - and all from my list. I never include any cheap "fillers".
Italian wines can be confusing. Italy has the highest number of indigenous grape varieties and is increasingly planting non-Italian varieties so there are many, many different wines produced thoughout the country.
It was difficult to narrow down my choice but in the end I have included a far-too-easily-drinkable Pinot Bianco, a very elegant Soave, a smooth Valpolicella and an awesome Nebbiolo and more. See above for a summary or click on each wine for more details.
