- Veneto: Anselmi San Vicenzo Soave
Anselmi's highly sought-after wines are an established benchmark for Italian white wines. San Vincenzo is medium-bodied, dry and fresh, with notes of citrus fruit, pear and grapefruit.
- Trentino: Cavit Teroldego
This medium-bodied, dry red exhibits aromas of fresh raspberries and blackberries, supported by excellent fruit concentration and smooth tannins.
- Campania: Feudi di San Gregorio Falanghina
Feudi di San Gregorio is Campania's premier winemaking estate. This Falanghina is crisp and elegant, with a lingering aftertaste of citrus and minerals.
- Tuscany: Col d'Orcia Spezieri
Col d'Orcia has a rich winemaking history that dates back to the 1700s. Spezieri exhibits strong aromas of spices and ripe cherries, and a harmonious and pleasant taste.
- Manduria: Ognissole Primitivo
This wine is soft and consistent, with an excellent balance of acidity and tannins. It is velvety smooth and closes with lingering sensations of cocoa and coffee.
- Piedmonte: Marchesi di Barolo Maraia
Maraia is infused with scents of wild berries and hints of vanilla. On the palate, it expands into a warm, robust flavor that is attractively assertive and well-balanced.
Please note that due to the popularity of this product, we reserve the right to substitute like wines and vintages.
These wines constitute a wonderful collection of Italian wines. They are excellent with food. The cookbook is a nice addition. Highly recommended.
We have only tried two of the six wines but both the Barbera and the Teroldego were disappointing. The color was beautiful but both had a rough finish. Maybe they need to age longer but we were disappointed.
