Italian Indulgence: three Rich Red Italian wines

£80.00

Italian red wines are so popular it made sense that my first Curated Box should be include three of our best Italian reds. All are from Tuscany, arguably the foremost Italian wine region. I had to include a “SuperTuscan” as these wines are some of the most innovative and superlative red wines from Tuscany. Chianti is the archetypal Italian red, and I have selected Le Miccine’s Riserva as it is beautifully sophisticated and complex. The third wine is a Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. This type of wine may be new to you but if you love Tuscan red wines and want something appreciated by critics and wine lovers worldwide, they are a delicious option.

Description

“SuperTuscan” describes some of the most innovative and superlative red wines from Tuscany. We are so happy to be able to offer you this example made by innovative female organic winemaker Ginevra Pesciolini. “Pretty delicious” is how Master of Wine, Jancis Robinson described it. Ideal for a dinner party with vegetarian or vegan guests, this rich bold vegetarian & vegan red wine complements dishes made with pulses and squashes, particularly if they are roasted.

Tasting Notes

Pretty delicious! Everything in harmony. The texture of a luxurious Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and the tang, flavour, and refreshment of well-grown organic Sangiovese. Well done!” so said Jancis Robinson. We agree. Delicious red cherry and plum with rich black fruits and smooth tannins.

Food Pairings

An excellent dinner party wine. Or a special occasion which cries out for a rich red wine. A real winter warmer, great for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner. This wine not only pairs with beef, but also lamb, chicken & turkey, veal, and cured meats. Great vegetarian and vegan wine that complements dishes made with pulses and squashes, particularly if they are roasted.

Wine Details

Wine Style: Big & Bold red

Grape: Sangiovese

Vintage: 2016

Volume: 75cl

Alcohol: 14.5%

Tasting Notes

This Chianti Classico Riserva is a sophisticated wine made from the best Le Miccine Sangiovese grapes. Intense red fruits and spice, and meaty notes developing as it ages, this is a complex wine. Although aged in French oak, the oak flavours are not overt. Ageing has softened the high tannins. A wonderful companion to rich meaty dishes.

Food Pairings

This wine is ideal for a dinner party. Or a special occasion which cries out for a sophisticated, bold red foodie wine. A real winter warmer, great for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner. Its rich flavours pair well with equally rich food. Hearty beef stews, roast beef, and roast turkey with rich gravy and all the trimmings. Steaks, game in a rich sauce and rich bean and beetroot stew.

Tasting notes

Ripe fruit flavours of cherry and plum, with spice notes and earthy, tobacco complexity. The high silky tannins and high alcohol give this wine great texture to pair with rich food. Eighteen months in large oak casks has softened the tannins (often high with Sangiovese), without adding overt oak character.

A real winter warmer, great for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner. Its rich earthy flavours pair well with equally rich food. It complements the earthy flavours of beetroot in bean and beetroot stew. And the hearty flavours of beef, steak, roasts, and game.
