Half Bottles by Post – Top Italian wines


Send a gift of wine – two half bottles in organza bags, in post safe packaging (with biodegradeable packing pellets), sent via Royal Mail Second Class Signed For.  Price includes postage and packing and a handwritten card, including notes on the wines and food matching suggestions.

We have selected two of the best wines made in northern Italy.

The Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio combines floral notes with citrus and stone fruits, and even savoury/minerally undertones.  Its concentration and weight make it very special.  Colli Orientali di Friuli, where this wine comes from, is on the hilly lands where Italy and Slovenia meet, enjoying Adriatic sunshine, cooling breezes from the pre-Julian Alps, and abundant rainfall, amid this green landscape grows the best Pinot Grigio in Italy.  We have visited the Livio Felluga estate, but its wines show just as beautifully back home as in its magnificent tasting room.

Fabulous with baked salmon with leeks and parsley sauce, but particularly fabulous with Torta – layers of Mascarpone, Gorgonzola and Dolcelatte, the oozing richness matching its weight and vibrant acidity.

Barolo, made from the Nebbiolo grape, is one of the most special wines in the world.  Pale in colour, but massive in structure – this is a wine that needs decanting (no decanter required – a simple jug will do fine, just pour the wine from bottle to jug, and leave for an hour or so – you can put it back in the rinsed bottle to serve if you wish).  You will be rewarded with glorious complex flavours of red and black fruits, mushrooms, cedar and warm earth.  Fabulous with a wild boar ragù, and Pecorino di Fossa cheese from Emilia Romagna.
