If you’re not keen on oaky whites, this crisp, fresh white blend is for you, as it’s oak-free. An import from the medieval village of Soave in northern Italy, this refreshing wine pairs especially well with vegetarian dishes and seafood.
Fresh and juicy, with hints of ripe green melon, grapefruit and apricot, this sauvignon blanc comes straight from the famous wine region, Friuli, in the northeastern corner of Italy.
Coming from the Puglia region of southern Italy, this ruby red blend is full of wild red berry fruit flavours, with a smooth, fruity palate and a well balanced, subtly tannic finish.

This teroldego (a red that comes mostly from the northeastern region of Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy), boasts flavours of blackberry, currant, damson plum and cocoa powder, and features a smoke-tinged, lightly spiced finish.
