We have just taken delivery of wines from a new supplier in Italy - well new to us that is. Six Native Varietal Wines from Italy : Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Nero D'Avola, Montepulciano, Rosso & Primitivo. All from Enrico Marcato.

After working for many years in the family business, he enrolled in the University of Milan to study Wine Making & Viticulture. To further his knowledge & expertise, Enrico worked in California and Australia. Not only is Enrico is the chief wine maker for his family vineyard, he with his partner Rebecca, run Marcato Direct.

Origini Bianco 2014 £6.50 : This is made from the Gargenega grape variety. The palate is lively and crisp, with hints of honey and almond. A zingy lime citrus fruit in the finish
Origini Pinot Grigio 2014 £6.95 : A dry, crisp Pinot Grigio with lemony fruit leading to clean, fine & refreshing acidity. 100% Pinot Grigio
Origini Rosso 2014 £6.50 : A blend of Merlot & Cabernet grapes. Sweet dark fruits with robust tannins deliver flavours through texture and layering. Very easy drinking.
Origini Nero D'Avola 2014 £6.99 : This wine is full of the sunshine and warmth of Sicily. The Nero D'Avola grape is the main grape of Sicily. Cherries, sweet plums & peppers with smooth round tannins. A crowd pleaser!
Origini Montepulciano 2014 £6.99 : Made from the Montepulciano grape - not to be confused with wines like Rosso di Montepulciano made from the Sangiovese grape!! Medium bodied dry red wine packed with dark red berry fruits.
Origini Primitivo 2014 £6.99 : Primitivo roughly translates as 'early one' - the grape being one of the first to ripen for harvest. In the US it is known as Zinfandel. Young tannins with sweet flavours of balckberry, anise & peppers ripen by the southern Italian sun.
