Focus on Italy...

February has seen me once again enthused by the superb wines that continue to flow out of Italy. At the recent Passione Vino tasting at St James’ in London, I was fortunate enough to taste some unique wines and talk to the great wine makers behind them. The wines from Marco Perco at Roncus in Friuli, Giuseppe Fanti in Trentino, Marco Fay from the Valtellina and Monteraponi in Tuscany really stood out. Some unusual varieties were showing just how boring the ubiquitous Cabernet Sauvignons and Sauvignon Blancs have become.

The Likes of Incrocio Manzoni, Pallagrello Bianco and Marzemino are fascinating and very drinkable. Lastly a special mention to Filippo Filippi from Soave, a nicest wine maker you will not meet and I had the pleasure of sharing a few glasses with him and his wife at the excellent Osteria del Mercato in London’s Leaden hall market. Great guy and his wines are pure class!
