Fontodi Tasting

The Fontodi estate lies in the amphitheatre like area below the town of Panzano, known as the 'Conca d’Ora' or 'golden shell'. Their vineyards are sun-drenched and south-facing, giving maximum opportunity for ripeness. The soils are rocky and high in limestone, providing great drainage while naturally limiting yields and driving intensity. The Manettis believe that this remarkable terroir is expressed more clearly and expressively through Sangiovese alone than blended with any other grape, and given the calibre of these wines, it's hard to argue.

Elio Sandri Barolo Offer

Elio Sandri

Things move slowly at Cascina Disa, a modest 7 ha estate high-up in the hills of the Perno Cru of Monforte d’Alba. It's a measured and patient approach that is out-of-step with modern wisdom and one which the Sandri family have dedicated themselves to religiously since taking over the estate back in 1965. The end game is producing wines of deep provenance and longevity, classically styled Barolo that hark back to the towering Barolo made by the legendary producers of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

Leeuwin Estate Offer

Leeuwin Estate

One of the five founding wineries of Margaret River in Western Australia, Leeuwin Estate has built a reputation for excellence over many years. The annual release of their Art Series chardonnay is arguably the most anticipated white wine release in the country, and while cabernet takes a humble seat alongside chardonnay at Leeuwin, it too is a perennial contender for the region's finest. 

The 2015 vintage in Margaret River delivered a magnificent encore to Leeuwin Estate's outstanding 2014 releases. Quality is excellent across the board, with this year's Art Series chardonnay providing a superb sparring partner to last year's much lauded offering, and one which will no doubt provide some entertaining side-by-side tasting over the next decade or so. The 2013 'Prelude' and 2014 'Art Series' cabernet duo are in superb form too and mark a continued commitment to quality on the red side of the equation at Leeuwin. This is a vintage that will see these wines blossom in the cellar.
