  1. Borghetto Chianti Riserva Italian Red Wine

    Borghetto Chianti Riserva 2013

    £10.50

    £10.50

    It was that old cad, Hannibal Lector, who told Clarice that he 'ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti' in The Silence of the Lambs. So we suggest that a far more reasonable food match for this velvety, cherry-laden, supple red wine would be a simple tomato and fresh basil spaghetti dish. Lovely.

    What we're saying is, stick to a vegetarian dish, because Hannibal has kinda ruined meat matches with Chianti. The cad.
  2. Brunello di Montalcino Carpineto Red wine

    Brunello di Montalcino Carpineto 2011

    £42.00

    £42.00

    Montalcino is one of those staggering quaint, historic, sun-drenched hill top towns that give Tuscany its unique flavour. Brunello di Montalcino is one of those reds that give Italy such a glimmering reputation for incredible, food-friendly wines.

    In 1967, Giovanni Sacchet, co-founder and winemaker at Carpineto, fell in love with Tuscany and its wines, and made it his life's mission to produce modern, world class wines here. His Brunello is big, firm and tight, with flavours of liquorice, raspberries and vanilla.
  3. Chianti Sogatia Italy Red Wine

    Chianti Sogatia 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This is an impressively neat little bargain Chianti that's on the bodysome, flavoursome side of this classic Italian style. This slightly more buxom red is moreishly drinkable, soft and lip-smackingly ripe. The palate is still classic though - with dark cherry and plum. This really is the wine to match with your takeaway pizza and a good classic gangster movie.
  4. Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini

    Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    The estate of Fattoria di Bagnolo dates back to 1419 and in fact, for some time was owned by Machiavelli, which we think is bloomin' cool. He famously said of his vineyard; "grapes should either be caressed or crushed. If you do them minor damage they will get their revenge; but if you squash the grapes, there is nothing they can do. If you need to injure a grape, do it in such a way that you do not have to fear their vengeance." He didn't seem like a great winemaker, he seemed far too concerned the grapes were plotting to over throw him... Thankfully, today the estate is run by Marchesi Barolini Baldelli, who is passionately devoted to viticulture and is in no way encourages despot winemaking.
  5. Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Red Wine

    Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Riserva 2014

    £21.00

    £21.00

    Do you remember in the 70s (probably not, you're probably a spritely young gent/madam) when Brits used to think of Chianti as the wine equivalent of ABBA: Sure, you know it and you're going to tap your feet to the beat, you might even recite a couple of lyrics of Dancing Queen but you don't really want your friends to see. Chianti came in those big round bottles, that for some reason had been whickered all-round the base and every Italian restaurant in the country used them as Candle holders. Thank the Italian heavens that those days are over. Wines like this are some of the finest to come out of Tuscany, with concentrated notes of sour cherry and tomato leaf, combined with a surprising age ability, Chianti is quickly becoming the wine equivalent of Led Zeppelin; we got a 'Whole Lotta Love'!
  6. Message in a Bottle Red Wine By Sting

    Message in a Bottle 2013

    £16.00

    £16.00

    A wine made in Tuscany that comes from the estate owned by musician sting and producer Trudie Styler.

    The nose displays aromas of cherries, wild blackberries and spices.The palate has a richness of fruit but one that is balanced both by careful use of oak and a refreshing acidity.

    Cherrywood, tea leaves and bramble fruits can all be found on the palate. Supple fine grained tannins provide a lovely structure to this long and satisfying wine.
  7. Morellino di Scansano Ventoso 2014 - Red Wine Italian

    Morellino di Scansano Ventoso 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Tuscany is famous for Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. But sometimes we like to take you off piste, because off the beaten track you find treats like Morellino di Scansano.

    One of Tuscany's least famous DOCGs, Morellino di Scansano produces stunningly fresh red wines, but the prices are held down by the fame of its neighbours.

    We are quite happy about that as it makes this pure and unoaked beauty, with its cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavours, even more irresistible. And it turns us into little piggies, just like the one on the label.
  8. Valentini Monteregio Rosso 2013

    Valentini Monteregio Rosso 2013

    £14.25

    £14.25

    In southwest Tuscany there is a teensy-weensy wine-producing region called Maremma, where lies the ancient castle of Monteregio, overlooking the Maremann plain. It is in this enviably lovely stretch of the Italian coast that Gianni Valentini makes wine, with great respect for the region's traditions, even naming this wine after the castle. A traditional style Sangiovese blend, it has with soft tannins, bramble and hedgerow berry flavours and just a hint of vanilla toastiness. This is everything that you would expect from a good Tuscan red but without the frequently hefty price tag.
  9. Valentini Monteregio Vivoli 2013

    Valentini Monteregio Vivoli 2013

    £18.50

    £18.50

    The Valentini winery is one of the oldest in all of Italy. Old enough to have hieroglyphs on their label. Let's just be clear the hieroglyphs are a stylistic choice, the winery does not predate written language... nor does it come from Egypt. Nope, this is a pictorial representation of Homer's epic "Odysseus." The moment Odysseus distracts an angry giant with some delicious wine, then stabs him in the eye with a wooden spear. A bit aggressive but the giant was trying to eat him. We're not sure what the hieroglyph for 'awesome' is but if we did, we'd whack it on the bottle!
