A fine selection of Italian Wines for Christmas
As winter grips ever tighter and it seems impossible that the day could cede any more to the long night, there is nothing quite like a bottle of good Italian wine to lift the spirits. Whether one plumps for the beguiling nuances of roses, menthol, spices and dark ripe fruit that emerge from a glass of great Barolo or the sumptuous red fruit, tobacco and spice of a mesmerising mature Brunello; these regions produce wines that are the essence of convivial evenings around the fire.
The selection below is another generous snap shot of some of the Italian wines that are currently on our fine wine list. Barolo, Barbaresco, Brunello and Super Tuscan can all be found as well as a good few others in between, it is a selection well worth perusing for the long nights ahead.
