‘The 2017 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino is a simply fantastic release. Displaying wonderful class and refinement, this opens to inviting aromas of sweet red berries, dried cherries, leather, dried herbs and spices all developing in the glass.This medium-bodied red is beautifully structured around silky tannins and possesses lovely inner-depth along with a round inviting texture through the finish. This is already showing remarkably well and could offer a decade long drinking window. An absolutely fabulous Rosso in this vintage.” 92 Points, International Wine Report

A dry Provencal classic made of cinsault with grenache, syrah and merlot too, this is bright and summery with strawberries, pomegranate spritz and richer vanilla aromas. Crunchy-fresh with sour-red grapefruit to start, it then mellows with a creamy edge to the strawberry fruit.
The nose opens up with sweet scent of elder and pear blossom and develops into apricot, pineapple and melon. In the mouth it is deep, mellow and very harmonious with a full body, soft and round mouthfeel and a note of spice and oak on the finish.
The term “mutemuka” can be roughly translated as “a sake made with pure intentions or without ornamentation.” Mutemuka’s signature Sake is made from two varieties of rice the brewery grows organically. For their Moto [starter mash] they use Kaze Naruko a strain of ‘Sake rice’, but the majority of the rice used is Hino-Hikari a prized ‘table rice’. Sake made with table rice tend to be more robust and richer in palate weight due to the proteins, fats and amino acids that become involved in the fermentation. The ‘Mutemuka’ is initially aged for about half a year at room temperature before release resulting in a beautifully full-bodied Sake. Mutemuka has dominant aromas of yeast and fragrant rice and a rich palate with notes of Jasmine rice and white radish with an earthy, savoury taste. This Sake has great food matching applications because of it’s unique savoury palate. Perfect with salty snacks or ingredients like coastal greens or oysters; seafood dishes; or hard cheeses like Tête de Moine.
The Ratafia is an historical Abruzzo Liqueur used in ancient times to toast the ratification of official agreements. Ratafia is made with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes and Amarena cherries. With a 26.5% alcohol volume Ratafia has a full body and warmth to it. Best served chilled and paired with dark chocolate desserts.
Vin Santo (pronounced Vin san-toh), which means “holy wine”, has various theories surrounding its origins. One of the most famous stories tells of a Franciscan monk, who would use it to celebrate Holy Mass. Later, it was more-commonly known for its “holy” or curative power regarding the treatment of ailments. Golden amber colour with rich, luminous reflections. Intense and complex bouquet; perfumed with scents of raisins combined with aromas of apricots, figs, dried fruit, wood, and honey fused with aromatic notes of a great personality. Full and warm palate with a velvety texture, sweet delicate notes and an extraordinary finish.
We think Braida makes the best Brachetto in the world. It is a highly aromatic sweet wine, which
is most often produced in the Charmat method (fermentation in a pressurized tank to create
bubbles). Braida’s Brachetto is soft, fruity, and a beautiful deep rose colour. It smells intensely
floral and slightly musky, with plenty of ripe red strawberry and raspberry on the palate. It is not
cloying, and has a fantastic refreshing finish. This is the best wine to match with chocolate.
From the seventeenth century until 1935, in Carrù there were two famous spinning mills for silkworms. A traditional beer, even beer.
Golden and opalescent, it is an easy to drink Blanche. On the nose, summer scents of orange peel prevail; when tasted, it is the coriander that invades the mouth, closing in a well-balanced finish. The body is velvety, thanks to the wheat, and the persistent foam.
Pair it with finger food, fried and fish-based main courses or sushi and sashimi.
Color: opalescent blond

Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery, but above all it is a family.
Pinot blanc, South Tyrol’s most important grape variety, has awakened from its slumber and has evolved a calling-card wine for the region. Schulthauser, having been vinified and bottled for the first time in 1982, is the consummate South Tyrolean Pinot blanc. This wine isn’t ostentatious, but is the consummate fresh-and-fruity Pinot blanc, the enjoyment of which is found both in its creamy softness and its lively acidity.
A premium aperitif and summer wine, it is also quite versatile when it comes to food pairing: it goes well not only with seafood and fish but also with delicate dishes made with wild fowl. It is especially recommended as an accompaniment to South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen.
