    Casa Emma Chianti Classico 2014

    €19.95

    Deliciously concentrated with notes of cherry and ripe currants, this has a medium intense nose that develops very smoothly into a velvet-textured palate. There is a refreshing bitter-sweetness at the back of the tongue, which allows for an amazing ability to be paired with loads of food types as well as for enjoyment on its own. This is really well-made and has great style and elegance for which you would normally have to pay a good deal more. Learn More

    Cortes de Cima Reserva 2011

    €79.95

    “Since planting their first vineyards in Vidigueira in 1991, the Jorgensens have pushed varietal boundaries. Late ripeners Syrah and Petit Verdot thrive in a dry, sunny climate whose growing season is extended by the tempering Atlantic influence. Made only in top years, this rich, powerful, flagship red pairs them with Aragonez and Touriga Nacional . Lavished with new French oak, it is a winning match for lovers of bold, generous wines with, in 2011, the oomph and balance to go some distance yet. “

    “Savoury, intense, tobacco-edged blackcurrant and berry fruits, balsamic, fine tannins. Rich, but lovely balance and length.“
