Italy Renaissance – hand-picked to help you choose

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Italy’s grapes are unlike anything found elsewhere; as unique as they are flamboyant. La Tunella’s Rjgialla, made from the Ribolla Gialla variety, is a beautifully pure fruited white, as intriguingly exotic as it sounds. On more familiar ground, Passobianco is a Chardonnay – but wait – it is grown on the lava fields of an active volcano (Etna), so is not entirely ‘trad’ either!

As for the reds, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are Italian thoroughbreds from Chianti and Barolo respectively. The Tuscan trio here comprises an elegant Chianti Classico from Vignamaggio and two Super Tuscans (so called for using Bordeaux grape varieties). The Syrah-based Insoglio vineyard is so close to the turquoise Mediterranean that you can feel the coastal breeze. Further inland, Le Cupole is the baby sibling of Tuscan legend Tenuta di Trinoro.

Finally, Barolo La Tartufaia from rising superstar Giulia Negri is the archetypal iron fist in a velvet glove. Its soaring rose petal perfume beguiles whilst its firm, fine structure affords ample food pairing options.
