Our range of Italian wines have been especially selected for us by the Botter family of Venice, who run a small privately owned winery in Piave. The Botter story is one of continuing success. Part of the production is from their own lands which mainly lie on the alluvial rich soil at the confines of the Veneto and Friuli whilst other production is furnished by growers who have worked with the Botter family for years acting as an extension of their own vineyards.
The selection of Corte Vigna wines; Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Pinot Grigio Rosé are from Provincia di pavia in Italy. These wines are well made, best partnered with food dishes and are a good value everyday wine.
Internationally renowned, multi-Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay today announces his own contemporary range of Italian table wines: Gordon Ramsay Italian Collection, working alongside world-famous winemaker Alberto Antonini, the collection combines Gordon’s passion with the heart and soul of Italian winemaking. Years in development and driven by memorable times spent in Italy, Gordon’s ambition was to source only the very best ingredients from the country. Alberto’s reputation for contemporary winemaking while simultaneously respecting traditions struck a chord with Gordon; their partnership resulted in a pioneering decision to blend fruit from two different regions, Tuscany and Abruzzo. Breaking down the barriers associated with cross-regional blending in Italy was key in achieving the desired styles and flavours. The Intenso Rosso 2020 is a vibrant ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh redcurrant, blackberry, and a touch of flint. This wine has depth and texture on the palate with approachable tannins and a soft and succulent finish. Perfect to pair with grilled Tuscan steak or a rich tomato ragu. The Vibrante Bianco 2020 is pale straw in colour with notes of white flowers and aromas of fresh green apple and white peach. This wine is vibrant and juicy on the palate. It has a refreshing acidity with a long mineral finish and can be enjoyed with seafood risotto or a fresh caprese salad. The Elegante Rosato 2020 is pale pink in colour with fresh red cherry aromas. This wine has a fragrant floral palate with gentle tannins and an elegant finish. The perfect accompaniment to chicken cacciatore, a freshly roasted vegetable fettuccine or simply chilled as an aperitivo.
