LIST•

Glance at our food menu and you’ll see that we focus not only on seasonality, but on regionality. This is because we feel that food has an identity and flavour that reflect the area that it comes from. With wine being no exception, we’ve decided to organise our list by region. We’ve picked our favourite regions of Italy and the ones that are most suited to our style of food. If you have any questions or need advice just ask one of our sommeliers who will be more than happy to suggest the best choice of wine for the occasion. Salute!

•S PA R K L I N G • In our sparkling selection we have included the most famous region for production in the world - Champagne, something very close to home - West Sussex and, of course something Italian. The north of France and south of England share the same chalk soil (think of the white cliffs of Dover), and also a very similar climate. Over the last 30 years sparkling production in England has grown and grown as well as the quality which is now equalling that of ourFrench neighbours. We also have the classic Prosecco from the heart of prosecco country really showing off the potential of the grapes.

•P I E D M O N T • Surrounded by the Alps, Piedmont benefits from a mountainous terrain that gives its wine an autumnal quality, making it the perfect accompaniment to the white truffles, mushrooms and wild boar produced in the region. Yet it is the red wine that truly stands out, with the Freisa, Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes unique to the area. It is

little wonder that Piedmont is often referred to as the ‘Burgundy of Italy’.

We have chosen to feature the valley of Valtelina where the surrounding Alps create a suntrap, allowing grapes to be grown on high northerly slopes. These benefit from sunny days and cooler nights, giving elegance to the wines.

•T R E N T I N O • THE WINE OF THE DOLOMITES

The winemaking area of Trentino runs from around the city of Trento in the north, to the top end of Lake Garda in the South. The majority of production in the area is made by huge co-op wineries, however two years ago a group of eleven small winemakers from across the area got together to form a group called the ‘i Dolomitici’. They promote their wine ethos, all of which share a respect for each other and their winemaking styles. Collectively the set out to produce distinctive wines that characterise the Dolomite

region; they also share a passion of biodynamic agriculture. At Fifteen we’re championing what they are doing. Be sure to ask us about these wines and the art of biodynamic farming.

This is reflected in the elegant, acidic and mineral wines that the area produces. With one of the lowest wine yields in the country, Friuli is all about quality, not quantity.

P atrignano •

The community of San Patrigiano was founded in the mid seventies. The idea behind it is to help people re-build their lives through learning trades and skills. They make everything from cheese through

to soft furnishings and designer furniture. Grape growing and wine making was one of the first activities that they started with. Now over thirty years later the quality of the wines they produce really shows.

•T U S C A N Y • Tuscany embodies everything we think of as being Italian, from the food and wine to the people and the land. Each wine produced here represents a different aspect of the region. Tuscan viticulture underwent a revival in the 1960’s when a small group of rebel winemakers began blending foreign grape varieties with the local Sangiovese grape. Known as the ‘Super Tuscans’ (ST*)

these wines are highly praised on an international scale.

•P U G L I A • Puglia or Apulia, is the least mountainous region in Italy, it forms the high heel of the “boot” on the far southeastern coast. Generally a very dry region apart from areas such as the tableland at the foot of the Gargano promontory which is one of the largest and agriculturally most productive plains in Italy. Elsewhere, rainwater permeates the limestone bedrock to form underground watercourses that resurface near

the coast. Groundwater is therefore abundant, and there are many caves and potholes.
