Did you know that Italy is currently the largest producer or organic and natural wines in the world?
When it comes to consumption by us Brits, Prosecco is one of the most consumed beverages. So, with all this in mind, this mixed case of organic wines is created from renowned, but native Italian grape varieties.
This case will consist of 2 or 4 bottles of each wine:
- Antica Enotria Rosso, Puglia; made from Nero d'Troia, Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes, you won't get any more Italian than this natural red wine. It has a deep ruby red colour and violet nuances with a characteristic bouquet of cherries and forest berries. On the palate this wine is soft, dry, with nice tannins and a good freshness. Perfect with orecchiette and root vegetable vegetables like turnips, potatoes or carrots.
- Pizzolato Pinot Grigio, Veneto; well Pinot Grigio in Italy and Pinot Gris in France. It's a beautiful straw yellow colour and is soft and smooth, with very gentle and complementary flavours with acidity. The bouquet is fruity, mainly of soft stone fruits, with some notes of toasted almonds, dried hay and walnuts. This is a lovely organic white wine thats made naturally with only a tiny amount of sulphites added to a vintage if its required. Can be most enjoyed with sea bream with a herb beurre blanc, spicy grilled white meats, omelettes or char-grilled vegetables.
- Baglio Girbellina Nero d'Avola, Sicily; this organic Nero d'Avola with deep ruby red colour and some hints of of violet. Aromas are quite intense with red and black fruit, pomegranate and wild strawberries. Soft and velvety red wine, with smooth and sweet tannins. Red wine with a bit of a kick - punchy fruit profile and smooth but lasting aftertaste. One of the best wines to pair with red meats, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.
