Beautiful red color. Intense nose of cherry and blackcurrant. Fruit-driven mouthfeel displaying the rich aromas perceived on the nose. Long and elegant finish. Great with roasts, white meats, mixed salads, soft cheeses.
Vineyard: La Morra

Barolo produced here is best described as “warm-hearted”. Michele’s Barolo Ascheri comes from the classic chalky soils of La Morra about 250 meters up the steep hillside, inter-planted with several types of grasses and beans to aid biodiversity and soil structure. The resulting wine has an enticing nose of flowers, ripe strawberries and dark cherries, and a good mouthful of plummy ripe elegant fruit. This deceptively mid-weight Barolo has a ton to offer.
Grenache 40 %, Syrah 60 %
An incredibly expressive bouquet: peony, violet, white pepper, cocoa, eucalyptus and star anise. An impressive palate from the outset with powerful flavour. The body is vibrant, unctuous and sensual leading to a mineral and acid driven finish. With its power and juiciness, Bélandes goes perfectly with braised lamb, roasted rabbit or roast duck.
High quality herbs are carefully selected for this radiant ruby red vermouth. Fresh floral aromas tickle the nose, while a slight sweetness teases the palate. The end is persistent with a subtle, nuanced bitterness that will leave you wanting more.
Very low inventory. Max 1 bottle per order.
Organically Grown on a tiny plot of just four acres, and using Biodynamic principles, this Pinot Noir with a garnet/ruby hue is fresh yet smooth, and bursting with notes of cherry, strawberry, black fruits and vanilla. The mouth is round and full, showing aged refinement and a balanced combination of fruit flavours, complemented by delicate tannins that linger through the long finish. Barrel-aged for 12 months in French Oak.
Garnacha (50%) and Tempranillo (50%)
Clean, bright purple-red colour. Lovely aromas of red and blackberries against a background of roasted notes, anise and cocoa. Very friendly and balanced in the palate, showing good structure and volume but fresh and lightly spicy as well. Smooth and delicious.
