Bin number:

1 x Araldica Barbera d'Asti Superiore
Piedmont, Italy

Alc vol: 14.5% | Line no: 476078
Warm, spicy aromas of blueberries and plums are complemented by subtle, smoky notes. The palate is rich and generous with juicy cherry and more plum fruit, and meaty, spicy notes beneath. Soft oak tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture. Try this wine with a traditional, richly favoured lasagne or a hearty stew.

1 x Recchia Bardolino
Veneto, Italy

Alc vol: 13% | Line no: 612593
From the eastern slopes of Lake Garda in northern Italy comes this deliciously approachable cherry-fruited Corvina with small amounts of Molinara and Rondinella. Packed with juicy fruit, this wine is incredibly soft and easy, ideally served with mixed antipasti or lighter pasta dishes. Great for alfresco dining or try an apéritif.

1 x Terre di Faiano Organic Primitivo
Salento, Italy

Alc vol: 14% | Line no: 607989
This is the frst organic Primitivo made 100% by the appassimento method. It is a ruby-red colour, with complex aromas reminiscent of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants. The oak ageing adds a pleasant roasted and spicy aroma. On the palate it is full-bodied, supple and smooth, with a long finish. It's ideal with rich meat dishes.

1 x Pecorino Terre di Chieti
Abruzzo, Italy

Alc vol: 13% | Line no: 739412
Pecorino is a lesser-known indigenous Italian grape variety (with no link to the Pecorino cheese), and this is a delightful, typically Italian wine with plenty of style and character. There are fresh, fruity, tropical notes on the nose, a subtle, delicate forality and an enticing minerality on the finish. It's perfect with most fish dishes.

1 x Teruzzi & Puthod Rondolino Vernaccia di San Gimignano
Tuscany, Italy

Alc vol: 12.5% | Line no: 450684
From the iconic Vernaccia producer Teruzzi & Puthod, this Tuscan dry white wine has elegant aromas of cut green apple and full citrus favours, alongside soft fruit character and a delicious stony minerality, followed by hints of almonds. With a gentle length, it's fantastically versatile with light foods.

1 x La Monetta Gavi del Comune di Gavi

Piedmont, Italy

Alc vol: 11.5% | Line no: 567429
This Gavi displays classic favours of citrus, nuts and hints of grass. It's a refreshing white wine made from the Cortese grape variety grown in Piedmont, northern Italy, coming from around the city of Alessandria and the Monferrato hills beyond. Enjoy this bright, refreshing white with seafood, fritto misto in a crisp batter or light poultry dishes.
