Meie portfellis on allolevad veinid:

Livio Felluga "Terre Alte", Friuli

Pietracupa Greco di Tufo, Campania"I've rated the Pietracupa Greco di Tufo as the best white of Italy for several years"

Cantina Terlano Pinot Bianco Reserva "Vorberg", Alto Adige

Valentini Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Abruzzo - "This great producer showed us the true potential of this variety; his version towers over most of the competition. Unlike too many straightforward, relatively simple examples of Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, the Valentini version is powerful and tightly wrapped - it demands time. Here is a memorable wine that is superb after a decade or two, it has richly earned its status as one of Italy's finest wines - red or white."

Pietracupa Fiano di Avellino, Campania

Villa Bucci Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Riserva, Marche - "The Villa Bucci is the most famous and perhaps the most consistent offering of Verdicchio; the wine is all about finesse and charm"

Gini Soave "Contrade Salvarenza Vecchie Vigne", Veneto"The Gini "Contrada Salvarenza" is made from vines ranging from 60 to 100 years of age; powerful in its approach, this is a great Soave with outstanding persistence and presence."

Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Bianco "Santo Spirito", Sicily "At Tenuta delle Terre Nere, Marco deGrazia excels in both Etna Rosso and Bianco. He crafts three different offerings of Etna Bianco, with the most distinctive being the "Santo Spirito" bottling, named for the eponymous contrada (vineyard) where the grapes are sourced. 100% Carricante, with some vines more than 100 years old, this is fermented and matured in barriques. Creamy with outstanding complexity and persistence, this is a sublime wine; the 2017 version is the finest Etna Bianco I have ever tasted!"
