About The Pack

When you think of Italian wines, there are so many iconic wine styles that come to mind.

All up and down the country, each province has their own signature varieties and styles - from the ethereal Nebbiolos in the north to the richer, heartier reds of the south, not forgetting the growing greatness of Sicily.

This pack takes you on a tour of six of the major wine styles and is excellent bang for your buck with the calibre of producer represented here. It's red-dominant, with wines from Piemonte, Veneto, Chianti etc.. with one brilliant Fiano from Avellino to brighten your day.


2020 Ciro Picariello Fiano di Avellino

The fruit for Ciro's estate-bottled Fiano di Avellino comes from two areas within the appellation, Summonte (around Picariello's house and winery), which is at 650m (2,100 feet) above sea level and Montefredane, at around 500m (1,650 feet) above sea level.

The wine shows vivid, distinctive aromas and flavours of almond, herbs, citrus, and an enticing smokey/struck flint character from volcanic soil. On the palate there is bright, green-apple acidity, and great complexity.

Fiano is one of the most age-worthy white wines in Italy, and this will go ten or fifteen years very easily (if you can wait that long!)

2020 Terre di Vita Deci Mani Perricone

Pre-Phylloxera Perricone was the dominant red grape variety in Sicily, before the bug devastated plantings. The small amounts remaining in the western part of the island are often blended with other native varieties such as Nero d'Avola.

Terre di Vita have released a 100% Perricone that is mid-heavy and warmly tannic. Certified organic fruit, all raised in concrete rather than oak, with dark cherry, blackcurrant, olive, fennel/aniseed characters.

A deliciously-great value, unusual red for cool times or the cooler months.

2021 Guiseppe Campagnola Bardolino Novello

The Giuseppe Campagnola Bardolino Novello is one of the freshest and fruitiest Italian red wines you will find.

Made from the same grapes you see in a Valpolicella blend, the wine shows bright red fruits on the nose and palate and high acidity, giving it an aroma, taste and feel very much reminiscent of a Beaujolais Nouveau, which are made to be light and fruity and quaffed, rather than mulled over.

With some notes of herbs and a slightly bitter aftertaste, there is also some depth to the wine. This is a wine that's ideal for consumption with pasta dishes, pizza, cheese, or any other light meals.

2018 Matunei Macaia Rosso

From high up in the Monferratos hills above Asti comes this equal parts blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera from a young exciting Piemontese couple.

Savoury, dark, moreish and sweet, a wine of complexity and contrasting characters, the freshness of the Barbera, acting as a counterpoint and balance to the Nebbiolo structure. Simply delicious, a blend from an area that frowns on such things, from a couple who are quite happy to continue to buck convention.

2019 Amano Primitivo

A regional classic, Puglia Primitivo is generally quite a rich full-bodied wine, yet this offering from A.Mano, marches to the beat of its own drum.

With no oak used, there is a real fresh character to this wine with a pretty, aromatic lift on the nose. Fresh raspberries and blackcurrants drive the aromas, with a little spice developing on the palate, where the fuller fruit notes are more prominent.

It’s quite youthful and primary, with the clear and clean fruit characters driving this supple, fresh expression of Primitivo.

2019 Brancaia Chianti Classico

All sweet and savoury Sangiovese joy from Brancaia. No oak at all (which is not required in Chianti Classico regulations) it is aged in a combinations of concrete and steel tanks.

Fresh and crisp with great acidity, with flavours of cherry stones, wild herbs and woodland air.

This is not a glou-glou chillable red though - there's plenty of drive, length and quality grape tannin.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
