Made from Tuscany’s noble varietal; sangiovese. The Bocelli family’s passion and expertise are on full display in this exceptionally bright, lush, and appealing Sangiovese.
With grapes hand-harvested from some of the best vineyard sites in Morellino, the fruit is deliciously ripe & smoky, with notes of marasca cherry, granite, & rhubarb compote.The finish is long & suitably dry, with admirable acidity that makes the palate taut & pleasing.
The wines from Puglia - @ Italy's 'boot' - have rocketed into Italy's high quality offerings!
Great quality & at prices much more affordable than the more famous areas of Tuscany & Barolo
Negroamoro is a grape native to Puglia & they specialize in this as a unique offering.
Dense purplish red, it is very intense on the nose with lots of soft ripe & fleshy red fruits - fresh raspberries & cherries with spicy overlays.
Medium to full bodied, but powerful, & with a balanced acid finishing streak
Try it - great with grilled meats!
"Herb & spice notes open & close this sleek, medium-bodied red, with light tannins defining the silky flavors of crushed black raspberry, dried fig & smoke." – Wine Spectator
Wines from Puglia (@ Italy's 'boot') have rocketed into Italy's high quality offerings.
Li Veli makes Wine Spectator's 'World's Top 100' wineries at #62 - not bad when you consider there are tens of thousands of wineries worldwide.
Like Zinfandel? Primitivo is apparently either a close relative - or is in fact Zinfandel. Either way, this 'Orion' is a delicious full bodied, balanced & fruity red - like a superb Zinfandel.
Dense purplish red, it is intense on the nose with lots of ripe & fleshy red fruits - fresh raspberries & cherries followed by spicy notes. Full bodied, powerful, & with a balanced acid streak Just great with red meats!
When you dedicate a wine to your mother & also put her image on the label, then presumably the wine had best measure up to a high standard.
That's exactly what Claudio Veberti has done with this delicious Barbera dedicated to his mother Gemella.
This is indeed lovely Barbera; juicy, full bodied & vibrant with a long balanced finish.
Top, top quality. Just like his Mum.....
Rigour, foresight in planning, imagination & poetry. Faithful to its own principles, with wines made of emotions, charm and harmonies, "fruit" of a continuous and passionate mission to promote the great wines of the Monferrato and Langhe, Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato above all.
This is what Montalbera Barbera is all about!

This extraordinary wine from the rare Ruche grape (pron. 'Roo-Kay') is winning gold & silver awards at US & European wine events.
Bright ruby color with delicate floral & red berry aromas; delicate, velvety taste with flavours of black plums & spicy pepper.
The aroma of this wine is sufficient reason to buy it - intense floral of roses & violets. Full bodied but with soft fruit - a very difficult wine to compare - its just different & very, very, very good.
Ruche was a grape once thought extinct but with DNA identification & significant propagation, there are now some 50ha in production. Unique aromas & flavours - this is a one of a kind.
This red wine from the fabulous Meleto Estate (founded 1256!) is our latest arrival in Singapore. "A red with beautiful dried fruits, chocolate & iron. Full body with fine tannins & a slightly dusty texture" - James Suckling -"The Wine Spectator"
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
“It’s the same as Sassicaia with their 'Super Tuscans' ; we make an IGT wine that’s a better wine than Barolo!! If you blend a little Barbera with Nebbiolo you get the vibrancy." - Claudio Viberti
It might be hard to pronounce "Inisj" ('en-see'); but is a superb innovative blend from the fabulous 2010 Barolo vintage.
Complex with ripe red fruits, herbs & concentrated layers of dark berries.
Full-bodied & elegant, with perfectly balanced bright acidity & soft tannins on the finish. A "Super Barolo"?
An extremely limited-production (1500 bottles) & only made in the finest vintages.
