Le Tende, Custoza, 2021

Le Tende have just 14 hectares of vines, all organically tended (certified) near Colà di Lazise, just above the south-eastern corner of Lake Garda. Their single white is a blend of Garganega, Cortese, Trebbiano and Trebbianello (= Tocai Friulano). Pretty, floral scent; and then builds well on the palate, showing pear and lime flavours. Mid-weight, a classic, not obviously fruity, northern Italian white. Now-2023

Garganega

Garganega             

Garganega is a white grape variety grown widely in the Veneto region of North East Italy where it is most famous for the production of Soave.

Though it can be inoffensively neutral, it has a distinct pea-pod character, and can deliver considerable weight and character.

Fiorano, Donna Orgilla, Offida Pecorino, DOCG 2020

Offida Pecorino is a DOCG for wines from Pecorino, an ancient grape of the southern Marche, in this commune of Ascoli Piceno. From organically farmed (certified) grapes, a silky mouthful of green melon and cucumber with a hint of lemon verbena. Excellent depth - from a little skin contact and six months ageing on the lees - and a zesty finish. Now-2023We started working with Paolo Beretta (formerly a dentist) and Paola Massi (a research pharmacologist) at Fiorano in 2015, with immediate...

Fiorano

Cossignano, Marche, Italy

We started working with Paolo Beretta (formerly a dentist) and Paola Massi (a research pharmacologist) in 2015, with immediate success.

Their wines exemplify perfectly the virtues of small-scale - they tend just 10 hectares of vines - organic cultivation. All exhibit an entrancing purity of fruit, and all are bottled with minimal sulphur...

Tenuta Casali, Bassamarea Bianco, Bianco Rubicone, 2020

The reputation of Trebbiano as a grape suffered terribly from too many boring, neutral whites produced all over central Italy. This example from, produced by diligent young growers in conversion to organics, shows the simple and flexible virtues of the grape. Crisp citrus with an orange accent, lightly herbal, nicely rounded, with a fresh finish. Honest, refreshing and tasty. Drink this year"The widely planted Trebbiano grape has a reputation for producing light and anodyne wine - but...

Tenuta Casali

Mercato Saraceno, Emilia Romagna, Italy

Based in Mercato Saraceno south of Cesena, the family have 20 hectares of grapes, mostly on hillsides on the edge of the Apennines.

Corte Mainente, Soave, Vigna Cengelle, 2021

From 90% Garganega (with 10% Trebbiano di Soave) on calcareous soils, this is lovely this vintage. With a glint of green in the glass, it’s leafy, cool and fresh, redolent of greengages and lime. Floral and fruity, this offers a ripe and friendly glass, lovely to drink on its own or with a wide range of light dishes. Now-2023
In 2019 we found a winner to work with in Soave in the shape of young Davide Mainente. His family own 12 hectares of vines, both near the town (the Cengelle...

Michele Taliano

Montà d'Alba, Italy

The brothers Alberto and Ezio Taliano, third-generation growers, lack land in the grandest Piedmont sites, with 13 hectares assembled over quite a wide area, largely in Roero, which is just to the north of the river Tanaro, but also across the river in Langhe, source of their Nebbiolo d’Alba and Barbaresco.

But their wines are transparent,...
