Italy is one of the world’s largest wine producing countries in the world and our range offers the greatest variety of types, ranging, colour, flavour and style imaginable.

The Italian producers we represent are at the forefront of world oenology and have taken their authentic treasures of their ancient land and enhanced them in modern wines whose aromas and flavours are second to none. Be it grape varieties, style and texture, regional differences, different terrains, weather, soil or the individualistic spirit of the producers our Italian wines are in essence high in quality.

The felicitous fusion of ideas between Langhe and Roero makes this a very original winery both in its production and in the range of wines on offer. The Pittatore and Sacchetto families manage an estate, of eleven hectares, split between the municipalities of Castellinaldo and Barolo, vinifying white and red grapes with equal skill to craft a range that runs from Roero Arneis to Barolo. Distinguishing features are styles that are never ordinary, well-gauged use of oak in the serious reds and lashings of freshness and drinkability in the whites. (Gambero Rosso)

At first sight the deep, intense ruby red colour of the wine is striking, with small violet arches. The bouquet suggests red fruit, rose petals and hints of wet spices. It is soft and warm to the palate with notes of red prune, cherry and blueberry which are harmoniously intertwined around a lively tannic theme. Being fruit of an exceptional harvest gives it a full, enveloping body, which finishes with liquorice and cloves. The fine performance is completed with an after-taste of black pepper and cranberry. ZLVMDABS13

MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO SPELT DOC 2013 The intense, ruby-red colour has hints of violet which fade on the edge of the glass. To the nose it is compact and muscular, and at times, full-blooded with a hint of fresh ink, together giving a masculine tone. Balsamic suggestions dominate the ending, closing with pungent oriental spices. The tannins offer depth, substance and flavour all at the same time; sensations run across the palate, leaving vivid recollections of chocolate with coffee and prunes pickled in spirits. The ending is pleasantly long. Pairs well with roast, grilled meat, T-bone steak and first courses with meat ragout.

ZLVMDABE12

BELLOVEDERE MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO DOC 2012 A sumptuous ruby; dense and taciturn initially, it opens to marasca cherry and roses, the nose is struck by wild berry jam with light notes of balsamic rosemary, liquorice and black tea. A full, enveloping palate which has a dense tannic theme with a notable presence of blended tannins, giving a persuasive idea of astringency. An extraordinary balsamic, mentholated ending evokes memories of other times. Pairs well with stews, braised and overcooked meat, game bird, wild boar and long aged cheese.

At the end of a meal, you will find many Italians clustered around the bar aiding their digestion with a glass of Amaro or Sambuca. With the welcome of LAZZARONI aperitifs and liqueurs in Australia, this trend is hitting home. There are only two Amarettos bottled in Saronno, and we are proud to market the first one ever produced and also the only one still produced according to a unique and traditional recipe: The infusion of the even more famous “Amaretto di Saronno” biscuits – crunchy sweet almond flavoured macaroons. Top of the range, we have Lazzaroni Limoncino, this sticky sweet liqueur is made with the infusion of non treated lemon peel originating from Sicily. Serve ice-cold straight from the fridge or freezer and makes a refreshing aperitivo or digestive. Lazzaroni Marsala Fine Secco is a rich brown fortified wine with a dry flavour reminiscent of medium sherry, and is made in Sicily from Catarratto and Grillo grapes and is aged for one year. The Lazzaroni range extends to include Amaretto and Peach, Fernet and Amaro aiding very much in stimulating the appetite. Gift sets are also available.

www.sandrodebruno.it VENETO

Sandro de Bruno is located in the Soave and Monti Lessini area (which is the production area for Soave Classico DOC, Soave Superiore DOCG, Recioto di Soave DOCG and Durello DOC Monti Lessini). The winery is located in Pergola di Montecchia di Crosara, while the vineyards are positioned both in Montecchia di Crosara and Terrossa di Roncà, on Mount Calvarina. This is an enchanting position thanks to its landscape but it is also very favourable due to it being an ex dormant volcano that over the centuries has left on the soil its lava, enriching the soil with minerals, which gives the wine a unique character. The visit into the vineyards is a fascinating experience: here you can you let yourself go into the road immersed in the wood and, suddenly, a long vineyard on the volcanic soil welcomes you. Daily sun exposure towards South, constant ventilation and temperature range between night and day influence in a positive way, the ripening of our grapes. From the very top of Mount Calvarina your gaze extends on the Pianura Padana and can even reach, during the most blue sky days, the Appennini towards south and Monte Baldo and Monte Pasubio towards north. Climate conditions of our territory reflect inevitably on the quality of the wines and maximum expression of this particular production area the result is harmonious, fresh and mineral wines that satisfy even the most hard-toplease consumers.

“The highest Barolo vineyard in the world” A document dated September 30th 1880, and preserved in the local land register describes Serradenari as the place “where there is about five days’ worth of Barolo and Barbera.” This document contains detailed illustrations of the ancient vineyards planted in exactly the same south-south-westerly vineyards that produce the best Nebbiolo grapes today, used to produce the Serradenari Barolo. Serradenari spreads over 13 hectares (32 acres) of land, of which 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) are woodland and the remaining 5.5 hectares (13.5 acres), vineyards planted with an array of grape varieties. Although all grape varieties produced in these vineyards yield wines of the highest quality, the vineyards themselves vary in altitude, exposure, and soil composition. The house divides the vineyards between those bottled as Serradenari and those bottled as Giulia Negri, wines of supreme elegance and sophistication, from a small vineyard between the house and the truffle forest.

Sibona

www.distilleriasibona.it PIEMONTE

The Antica Distilleria Domenico Sibona S.p.A is the oldest historical distillery in the Piemonte region. Most Grappas from Italy are made from a blend of grape varieties, but Sibona is unique as they specialise in outstanding quality grappa’s made with only a single grape variety like Grappa Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Arneis, Brachetto and Moscato. The distillation process consists of vapour production from fresh grapes soon after their arrival in the distillery, which allows the extraction of the unique flavour of the grapes’ full aroma. After distillation, grappa is stored in glass bottles for approx. six months before it is made available for sale. The flavour profile of Grappa depends on the grape variety used. Traditionally, Grappa is served chilled in small tulip glass and served after a meal, as the Italians believe that it aids digestion. Grappa can be added to espresso to make a “Caffe Corretto”, or serve it on the rocks with a slice of orange and a sprig of mint. It is great as an aperitif and compliments well dark chocolate and cigars after dinner. Over the years, Sibona Grappa has won many medals from the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Awards. This recognition confirms that Sibona products are among the best, not only in Italy but also internationally and supports the business philosophy - their love and passion for distillation and the utmost attention to quality.

Valle Dell’Acate The Sicilian winery “Valle dell’Acate” was born in 1981 from the initiative of two ancient families, living in the territory of Ragusa: Jacono Ricca and Ferreri dell’Anguilla, who have been cultivating their vineyards for ever and who lovingly care their wines to keep alive the memory of events and things passed down by previous generations. With the awareness of the historical value of their territory, they have pursued the objective of developing both the viticultural and oenological potentialities of the autochthonous species of grape wines. The new generations (incumbent winemaker Gaetana Jacono in particular) have been entrusted with the task of promoting the knowledge of their products in Italy and all over the world. The grapes, coming from their own vineyards, are vinted in the winery located in the old estate of Bidini. Not far from there, the original wine vaults containing the old oak and chestnut barrels, which are used only for refining wines made out of particularly rare grapes are located in the courtyard of the Jaconos’ house.

TOSCANA

When Pier Luigi Tolaini first set foot on the amphitheatre-shaped vineyard at Montebello, he was certain he had found the perfect balance of climate, soil, and exposure to make the best Tuscan wines. Since that time, Tolaini has focused on producing top quality wines by embracing the rich culture and heritage of Tuscany, and introducing technological innovation. Like the vineyards surrounding it, the winery at Tolaini Estate is an expression of both old and new. All work in the vineyards is done by hand, from harvest to pruning to canopy management. This allows the best grapes to be selected by the pickers, and the quality is checked again on the sorting table, so only the best quality whole berries are used.

Named for the small forest above the vineyard as depicted on the label. Spicy notes of French oak rise above distinct aromas of cherry and berry. The palate has a backbone of Sangiovese, a roundness of Merlot and enhanced body from the oak (20% new and 80% one year old for 14 months). ZTOLCCV15

CHIANTI CLASSICO VALLENUOVA DOCG 2015 - 750ML This is a sensual wine with black cherry fruit notes, tobacco and hints of licorice and spice.

VALDISANTI IGT 2010 - 750ml A Full bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese & Cabernet Franc with spicy complexity imparted by its time in French oak. The youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. The palate is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavours framed by rich oak (16 months in French oak barriques, 70% new and 30% one year). The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins is indicative of great quality.

Rich, concentrated & muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with big tannins & deep tiers of cherry, plums & wild berries, and nuances of spice, vanilla & liquorice. A long flavourful aftertaste with juicy fruit & mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards, (aged 18 mths in 100% new French oak barriques). Sensual, young & beautiful now, this wine will faithfully repay cellaring.

Over 80 years of passion for its vineyards, care for its cellars and love for wine have led Valdo to successfully embed and promote the culture of Prosecco throughout the world, and to receive prestigious accolades year after year.

VALDOBBIADENE-VENETO

Similar to etymology which gives an account of the entire history of a specific word, the Valdobbiadene area is undeniably intertwined with the history of the Valdo winery. The wine estate and its territory complement each other: every wine, every sparkling wine, every bottle contains a subtle aromatic note that evokes the flavour of vineyards growing on the hilly slopes of the Treviso province. A cut of cultivated land of about 18,000 hectares flooded with light which shines on the green slopes of this territory sheltered by the Dolomites to the north and subdued by the Adriatic Sea to the south. Located right in the heart of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG production area, the Valdo Winery has been cultivating this unique area for generations. Over 80 years of passion for its vineyards, care for its cellars and love for wine have led Valdo to successfully embed and promote the culture of Prosecco throughout the world, and to receive prestigious accolades year after year.
