The Oddbins Take

LL Cool J once told us not to "call it a comeback;" apparently he'd been there for years. Yet, we think that's a shame; a comeback is one of the most life affirming events in human endeavour. Elvis in the black leathers, Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final and Vince Vaughan in that Dodgeball tournament.


However, there is one comeback that stands head and shoulders above the rest. We are of course talking about the I Fabbri winery. In the 1990's Susanna Grassi, who was already making a name in the fashion world, returned to her old family vineyards by chance. Only to find them in a state of ignominious dereliction. Without any specific experience and armed with nothing but good memories and the resolve to return her family estate to its former glory, Susanna started making wine. After years of toil, Chianti Classico Olinto stands as a testament to Susanna's hard work. This Sangiovese/ Merlot blend has an intense bouquet of sour cherry, plum, tomato leaf and violet backed by a firm structure.


Go on, you can call it a comeback!
