2019 Piedmont

Welcome to our 2019 Piedmont offer which features new releases from some of the region’s finest producers.

By no means a straightforward vintage but a combination of factors ensured that the 2019 vintage in Barolo, has produced some wines which are pushing the likes of 2010, 2013 and 2016, very close from a quality perspective. The 2019 vintage had a long growing season with warm days and cool nights in the final few weeks allowing for excellent physiological ripeness. The vintage was warm in general but due to the diurnal temperature shift there is wonderful balance between ripeness, tannins, alcohol and acidity.
“Piedmont remains a fertile hunting ground for savvy consumers who love age-worthy, nuanced reds. I am no longer surprised by it, but suffice it to say, the number of Burgundy growers I run into every year in Piedmont keeps growing!” Antonio Galloni, Vinous

After the highly problematic and uneven 2018s, Barolo bounces back with a stellar vintage in 2019 that could very well represent the beginning of a new cycle of strong, outstanding years for this historic appellation. The 2019s are potent, tightly wound wines that will thrill readers who appreciate the nuance, subtlety and structure of Nebbiolo. Today, the 2019s show elements of youthful austerity that, at times, recall vintages such as 2016, 2005 and 1999. The only thing 2019 lacks is some of the visceral excitement found in the very best years, although the top wines certainly check all the boxes.
2019 Barolo: Back on Track

Tuscany - New Releases

Tuscany is one of the most famous and prolific wine regions anywhere in Europe. It is best known for its Sangiovese-based dry red wines – which dominate output. These include Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. With the rise of the Super Tuscans, the most famous of which come from Bolgheri, Cabernet Sauvignon became a much more prominent variety in Tuscany. Merlot and the other Bordeaux varieties also feature, as does Syrah (most notably in Cortona).

We are delighted to offer a number of exciting new releases from our favourite Tuscan superstars.
