In this box we have two beautifully presented and top quality Italian wines.
Both are from the North of Italy and anyone that loves wine will know them straight away. We chose them because the producers are two of the top wine producers in Italy if not the world.
Ca' dei Frati, `I Frati` Lugana
Produced in Lugana near Lake Garda, this wine is made from the Turbiana grape..don't worry I had to look it up myself. It’s a wine of great finesse and elegance. It’s a dry wine with a nose of white flowers, almond and apricot and on the palate its light but zesty with concentrated flavours of orchard fruits, citrus and even a little spice.
Amazing with scallops or prawns served with ginger.
Ripassa della Valpolicella Superiore Zenato
This wine was produced in Valpolicella beside Lake Garda. It is made using the Ripasso method which involves putting valpolicella wine into a vat with the leftover skins and seeds of Amarone for an extended period of time in order to increase the complexity and richness of the resulting wine.
This wine is dangerously easy to drink. Loaded with sultry, silky smooth dark cherry fruit followed with a lash of dark chocolate and finishing with figs and spice.
Complex and hedonistic we can't rate this wine high enough.
An amazing gift.
