From the Euganei hills in Veneto, Pinot Nero vines were planted by the Biscardo family over 20 years ago in volcanic soils, rich in minerals and clay. These characters are found in their Rosapasso: a smooth, fresh and structured rosé, light salmon-pink in colour.
Grape: Pinot Noir
Wild berry and smoky notes are deftly handled at Henry of Pelham, where this variety has become their recognised flagship red wine. Deep ruby colour with hints of purple; blackberry and plum aromas with coffee, cedar and smoky notes. Dry and full-bodied with pronounced black cherry flavours lingering on a smoky finish.
A brighter, fresher style of Nero d'Avola here, not a trace of rusticity - lots of juicy cherry and blackberry fruit. Opens with an appealing crunch of fresh berries, then softens to quite a smooth, creamy texture. Unoaked, but with lots of flavour and depth - an attractive chewy texture, but not a heavyweight. Very Mediterranean in style.
Grapes: Nero d'Avola
Now this is something different and really good! Not a common pair in the wine world, but in this case they have a perfect harmonious marriage of petrolly peachiness.
