Swigs Essential Italy

Our hearts go out to all of our Italian friends right now. We've spoken to our winemakers and they are thankfully all well and safe looking forward to budburst and a great 2020 crop. As a little tribute to all of their hard work we've popped together 6 reds from across Italy that will be perfect  accompaniments  to any pasta/pizza/risotto that you throw at them. 

Swig Mixed Case Essential Italy

Sorry, this case is not available!

1 x Barbera Bonelli 2019

It's always fun to match the wine to the food of the region the wine is from. In the case of our Bonelli Barbera, you're spoiled for choice. A classic tagliatelle Bolognese would fit the bill very nicely. Or, if you can find a good Italian deli try gramigna (a pasta like an elongated macaroni, unique to Bologna) with a simple sausage, white wine and tomato sauce, sprinkled with blizzard of mature Parmesan.

1 x La Calcinara Mun Rose 2018

"Orange pink. Flinty complex aromas and flavors of quinine, orange liqueur, apricot peel, apple jelly and redcurrant. Harmonious acidity provides lively cut and extends the ginger-accented flavors on the long vibrant and tactile back end. Super Rosato that boasts a ton of flavor." Ian D'Agata 92 pts.

Grape: Montepulciano
1 x Prosecco Collfondo Fratelli Collavo NV (Organic)

It has a super mouth-filling mousse – although I'd describe it more as a foam than a mousse. The ancestral 'Col fondo' method does cost more to produce, as you'd expect, but at this price, I would back-up the truck.

Grape: Cabernet sauvignon,merlot
1 x Nebbiolo, Elvio Tintero 2018

I wouldn't bat an eyelid if you told me this was a Barolo or Barbaresco at over £20. Gentle fragrant rose, quite pale in colour, a hint of strawberry, fired brick and earth flavours. The best producers are those that handle the grapes gently, which in turn expresses the magic of the terroir and shows Nebbiolo at its almost Pinot Noir - like best. The colour is quite pale, like many Barolo and Barbaresco. The aroma is wonderful with brick, earth, stone, cherry, verging towards a Pinot Noir style, with hints of rose and strawberry but distinctly Italian, nice fresh fruit, floral with fine spices and good grip on the finish, but supple. This is not a big wine, but it's an excellent wine.
