Omerta no more on the hidden underbelly of Italian wine. These are serious guys. Varieties and expressions that stay out of the news (mainly) but are explosive, stylish, passionate and morish, with ferocious intensity. We have a 6-Pack of Wiseguys with great pricing (though they are not off the back of a lorry!). True Italian from Piedmont to Sicily.
CHIAVENNASCA is the regional expression of Nebbiolo in Valtellina, an area so high it requires helicoptor harvests - Arpepe are generally considered the areas greatest producer. This is the Boss, Don Arpepe). DOLCETTO is the hardest working grape in the North and the ultimate food wine. Trediberri Dogliani is Consiglieri to the boss. Bollamatta NV is the only Pink MARTINOTTI method Sangiovese we know of. It's made from the green harvest of Bibi Graetz top wine Testamatta, a Caporegime if ever there was one - he manages the crew, the soldiers.
The soldiers in this organisation areeven more formidable., they are all from the South. From Campania, Feudi di San Gregorio, a white made from FALANGHINA offers muscle but incredible freshness and clarity. Scala Ciro Rosso Classico Superiore from Calabria is the silent assassin, made from the grape GAGLIOPPO, nobody ever saw it coming. Finally, Pietradolce Etna Rosso from Sicily is the one who doesn't even speak any english. Made from NERELLO MASCALESE and grown on the slopes of a live volcano, trifle with this at your peril.
