Our Organic Italian Mixed Case consits of 6 bottles, 2 x Chianti Classico Le Corti DOCG 2015, 2 x Cataldi Madonna Malandrino Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016 and 2 x Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2015.
Salcheto has become the epitome of environmental efficiency in. It is the first estate in the whole of Italy to be fully self-sustainable and their energy independent cellars are a model of innovation and efficiency. Even the bottles they use are the lightest and most economically friendly bottles available! All the Salcheto wines are made without the use of sulphites and fermented using indigenous yeasts. The Vino Nobile’s are made from 100% Prugnolo Gentile. The Salcheto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano has plenty of dark fruit, a richness in the body and broad savoury, spicy notes, but with a great structure and length. Nice and tight on the finish.
Antonio Cataldi Madonna is an amazing success story and the maker of some of Italy’s greatest wines of today, he is regarded by wine experts as one of the top wineries not just in Abruzzo, but in Italy as well. Thanks to the extraordinary solar exposure and to high variations in temperature, as well as the specific character of the soil, the area is particularly suited for viticulture. Montepulciano has been cultivated since ancient times, and production has received further impulse at the end of the 16th century when Francesco de’ Medici, grand-duke of Toscana, pushed for intensification of wine production in this area. Cataldi Madonna is one of the very finest estates in Italy. The wines are varietally expressive, full of personality and beautifully crafted.” Antonio Galloni – The Wine Advocate.
The Chianti Classico Le Corti is produced in an archetypal “Chiantishire” countryside that rises above a renaissance villa which is the home of the Principe Duccio Corsini. The Villa Le Corti Estate comprises of over 250 hectares of land, 49 hectares of which are vineyards planted with Sangiovese to produce Chianti Classico and IGT Principe Corsini. Principe Corsini has been organically certified as of 2016 and also Vegan certified as of 2014. Le Corti is generous and open, featuring vibrant, almost crunchy red berry fruit. It ages gracefully but can be enjoyed in its youth with style, as it comes across as very deep and complex, yet accessible.
