  1. Birra Moretti Stubby
    Birra Moretti Stubby
    Birra Moretti is a genuine beer produced using a traditional process that has remained almost unchanged since 1859. To produce Birra Moretti, only the highest quality raw materials are used and a particular mixture of valuable hops, that gives the beer its aroma and unique fragrance, intensifying the slight bitter flavour. It is a low fermented beer that has a golden colour, the tone of which is given by the quality of malt used.

  2. Peroni Nastro Azzuro 330ml Bottle
    Peroni Nastro Azzuro 330ml Bottle

    Brewed from the finest spring planted barley malts, has a unique balanced taste with a delicate aroma arising from the hops of the most exclusive varieties. Young, balanced and sparkling, Nastro Azzurro is the beer for the knowledgeable and demanding punter. - Birra Peroni Industriale (SABMiller)

    This beer is something special.The first glass I poured for this review could have easily been mistaken for a glass of champagne had it not been poured into a pilsner glass.The beers colour is probably one of the lightest shades of yellow I have ever seen.It’s taste starts off bitter and dry and then transitions into a slightly fruity aftertaste.There isn’t much of a beer smell other than that given off by the hops.Peroni makes for an easy drinking beer.

  3. Cantina Tollo Rocca Ventosa Pinot Grigio 2020
    Cantina Tollo Rocca Ventosa Pinot Grigio 2020
    Cantina Tollo is located in the Italian village of Tollo in the region of Abruzzo. The  vineyards spread from the coastal slopes to the verdant mountains overlooking the Mediterranean.

    They produce incredible value wines from the traditional varietals of the region. A modern and thoughtful producer they have farmed the lands here for over 60 years with a view to sustainable agriculture and protection of their traditional lands.

    This is text-book stuff. Steel and concrete tank with no oak. Crisp and crunchy with a minerally hit on the nose reminiscent of white pepper and ground quartz. Easy fruit that is plush and forward with a fresh cut to the mid-weight flavours. Hard to beat at this price!

  4. Umani Ronchi Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 'Podere' 2021
    Umani Ronchi Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 'Podere' 2021
    The Bernetti's own over 200 hectares of prime vineyards in the Marche. Leading Piedmontese Oenologist Beppe Caviola heads the oenological team, having received a healthy legacy from retired consultant and Italy's greatest winemaker, Giacomo Tachis.  First made in 1977, this entry level Montepulciano is the ultimate value 'pizza wine', although it goes with just about anything.

    Bam! This is one of the best releases we have seen of this wine. A beautiful balance of sweet black fruits and savoury peppery spices that leaps out of the glass. Lovely cool fruits, tightly packed in a sumptuous palate that's bursting with fruit and plenty of vibrancy. Its pure and fresh with crunch. Yum!

  5. Vicoletto Sicilia Catarratto Bianco 2020
    Vicoletto Sicilia Catarratto Bianco 2020

    Made from Catarratto, a native grape to Sicily, which is cultivated in the northwestern part of the island. The soils are clay and sand, and the climate is very windy, cool, and dry. Small yields and dedicated winemaking combine to produce a wine that is fresh, versatile and enjoyable.

    The vivacity of Sicilian citrus and a hint of pineapple capture your attention, and a luscious texture typical of catarratto makes it perfect to match with seafood. Unfiltered, unfined, vegan, low sulphite.

  6. Luccarelli Primitivo 2020 SOLD OUT
    Luccarelli Primitivo 2020 SOLD OUT

    The Terre di Sava winery was founded in 2008 and today produces a range of wines designed to celebrate the wine-making history of Sava, within Puglia (South East Italy).

    Located just to the west of Manduria (the town after which the Primitivo di Manduria DOC is named) on the Salento Peninsula, the “land of Sava” is the land of the gnarled old bush vines that produce the Primitivo grape destined for this rich and earthy expression of Puglia.

    Primitivo 100% - Salento,Puglia. Lots of red fruit to the fore and a sweet spice hit that gives a lovely warmth to the fruit. This is plump, mid-weight and very gluggable. Perfect with grilled meats and would happily stand-up to any Aussie BBQ fair you could throw at it.

  7. Sensale Grillo 2020
    Sensale Grillo 2020
    IF you don't know it Grillo is a native to the island of Sicily and the Sensale bottling from Cantine Europa has to be one of the best value options around. The wine comes from the western part of the island and is made without any use of oak and is deliberately styled for early and easy drinking.

    Notes of citrus, pear and stone fruits open with a bit of sea-spray action that lends a slightly salty twang to both the nose and pallet. There is definitely a bit of flesh and punchy fruit with citrus to the fore followed by a little stone fruit and minerally hit. We love the way the fruit and savoury clip play off each other in the mouth and just a little hint of bitterness make this the perfect pairing to Mediterranean seafood. Mwah!

  8. Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020
    Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020

    Fontaleoni is a family estate run by brother and sister team, Matteo and Simona Troiani, with a little help from consultant Paolo Caciorgna. They've succeeded in producing a range that is emblematic of the best of what the region has to offer with particular emphasis on Vernaccia.

    Like all their wines they get the primo treatment in the winery. A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot this presents with a top note of rose-petal, plum, and wild cranberry. Its bright and crunchy mouthfeel gives way to soft red fruits and that sangiovese sour cherry we all know and love. I don't know why we don't see more sangiovese base rose as they seem to get that balance of savoury and sweet so well, especially when they are pink.

  9. Le Moss Frizzante IGT
    Le Moss Frizzante IGT
    This is slightly cloudy Glera sparkling wine from the Piave region in Italy. Basically it's a Prosecco as it is made from all glera grapes but made in a pet-nat style and unfiltered so cannot legally call itself Prosecco. But honestly why would you care? This is such a fun wine to drink. We all screamed "picnic wine!" when we tried it. Hell yeah!

    Wild yeast fermented with natural carbonation from secondary ferment in bottle there is lilting aroma of bread crust, Acacia flowers, apple, lemon & grapefruit pithiness. Extremely fresh with some chalky texture that reminds a bit of great scrumpy cider. Bone dry, totally fresh and totally delicious. Yum!

  10. Poggio Dei Principi Sangiovese 2019
    Poggio Dei Principi Sangiovese 2019
    Made from Sangiovese cultivated in the area of Rubicone in Emilia Romagna. The soils in this region are a mixture of alluvial and glacial deposits (sand, pebbles and minerals), imparting a freshness of fruit not found in Sangiovese grown in other parts of Italy.

    Small yields and dedicated winemaking by this fantastic cooperative combine to produce a wine that is fresh, versatile and enjoyable.

    The perfume is fresh and fruity, with a floral and slightly herbal bouquet. Taste is fresh and juicy with cherry conserve characteristics and an earthy under-tow buttressed by the varieties firm tannins. A pizza/pasta wine if ever we tried one and bang on for the money.

  11. Farina Pinot Grigio 2020
    Farina Pinot Grigio 2020
    Farina of Veneto was founded in the early 1900s with a passion and desire for producing the highest quality wines possible from the Veneto region. Cousins Claudio and Elena Farina; now 3 generations are responsible for continuity of the Farina tradition and focus on quality production.
    Farina is located in San Pietro in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica; the historical and original Valpolicella. Claudio and Elena own 10 hectares of their own vineyards and source fruit from long standing grower partnerships which encompass a further 70 hectares under vine.

    This opens with a nice little lift of ripe peach, apple, floral notes and a hint of flinty stone shimmering around the edges. The palate has some nice plump fruit with a streak of minerally freshness that runs through the middle. Its on the heavier side of light and the fact that it comes off a combination of volcanic, alluvial and calcareous soils lends it a lot of complexity especially for a wine at this level. 100% steel tank means it remains beautifully vibrant. Lots of appeal here and very versatile.

  12. Pala Silenzi Rosso Carignano Monica 2019
    Pala Silenzi Rosso Carignano Monica 2019

    Established by Salvatore Pala in 1950, today, sixty years later Mario Pala represents the third generation of the family to run this famous estate. Based in Sardinia, the vineyards of Azienda Agricola Pala are divided into five separate holdings according to their different terroirs. 

    This is a bit of a modern take on Sardinian wines with a bit of extra vibrancy and freshness that you don't always catch from the region. A blend of mainly carignan and a touch of locally grown monica. White pepper spice and a quartyz thing going on here with crushed raspberry and strawberry leaping out of the glass. There is a lovely warmth to the fruit, sweet and ripe with a buzz of snappy tannin and lick of fresh acidity. It's plush and crisp with a gentle grip.  MYLES, PWS

  13. Insieme Pinot Grigio 2020
    Insieme Pinot Grigio 2020
    The Bruni family works with farmers all over Italy for the Insieme label, producing wines which are delicious, top value, and varietally and regionally correct. This is not the first time we have featured their wines and it certainly won't be the last. They offer exceptional value but also that little something that you just can't quite put your finger on.

    Raised without oak, this is a fruit driven expression, pushing against the neutrality of some of these styles.  Pear and green melon fruit, juicy and a crackling mineral undertone, beautifully textured and has some personality about it.

    Kris Wines Pinot Grigio 2020
    From one of the masters of North Eastern Italy, Franz Haas, comes the ‘Kris’ Pinot Grigio. This is their ‘entry’ level Grigio but absolutely over delivers as a bang-for-your-buck drop.

    White peach and crunchy tree fruits to the fore with a gently spiced, quartz/mineral nose. The palate is clean as a whistle with a core of sweet white fruits cut with bright, zippy acidity. At the same time the palate is generous with a lovely textural element that gives it nice weight and punch while always remaining bright and fresh. Another fantastic effort!

  15. Ca Erto Soave 2020
    Ca Erto Soave 2020
    This Soave is from the 'Classico' zone in the heart of the region, and is composed of mostly local variety Garganega, with just splash of Trebbiano. The team at Ca Erto utilise a combination of both modern and traditional techniques to coax the most out of their wines. It's all about purity of fruit and freshness here which they deliver in spades.

    This vintage is on the lighter side of Soave but in saying that it lacks nothing in flavour and packs a punch in the value stakes. Fresh cut peaches and green apple with a touch of white pepper spice lead into a bright but delicate nose. Plenty of zippy fruit darts around the palate. The palate is clean and clear, vibrant and snappy with a little green hazelnut twang on the finish. Delicious stuff and we be you will be coming back for more after you try this.

  16. Insieme Primitivo del Salento 2019
    Insieme Primitivo del Salento 2019

    Insieme translates as 'together', borne of the close co-operation between growers across Italy and the Bruni family's winemaking team for some 40 years.  The Insieme wines provide solid introduction to Italy's classic regions and varieties, in this case the lusty Primitivo of Puglia.

    Medium to full weight, capturing the essence of southern Italian 'sunshine in a bottle'.  Bursting bright with plum, baking spices, fig and dried fruit and a fresh acid line, a full though juicy and guzzlable style making for a high class barbecue wine, or an easy pairing for pizza and tomato based pastas.

  17. Colle Corviano Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2019
    Colle Corviano Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC 2019
    Colle Corviano are smart operators producing some pitch-perfect, classic drops from the hills of Abruzzo. They farm sustainably and all facets of wine-making and growing are agonised over bringing a wonderful vitality and balance to their wines. The montepulciano is off select vineyards all sitting above 300 metres and exposed to the gentle breeze of the Adriatic.

    The wine sees a touch of French oak and this subtly frames the mulberry and black berry on the nose while lending a soft spicey edge to the fruit. Juicy and plush the fruit glides along easily with some fine, grainy tannins peppered throughout the slightly broody fruit. This is screaming for a bit of red grilled meat or really anything charred on hot coals would be a dream.

    Antonio Soave 2020
    Set in the foothills before the Dolomites - with most sites sitting between 250-500 metres, the wines of Antonio Fattori are a masterclass of focus and definition. His gift is to let the varieties - Garganega for Soave, Pinot Grigio and more recently Durello and the Valpolicella red grapes which speak brightly of their origins.

    These wines are fantastic and this must be one of the best value Soave's around. Lovely up-front peach and soft green almond tinged fruit greet you. There is a lovely zip to the palate and some nervy energy countered by pure and plush fruits. This is modern, stylish and very tasty.

  19. Santadi Vermentino Villa Solais 2020
    Santadi Vermentino Villa Solais 2020
    The Sulcis peninsula is, geographically, Sardinia's most ancient area, rich in archaeological sites, and offers an astonishing palette of variations and contrasts, with coastal sand dunes, gentle hills and inlets, narrow strips of flatland and inland mountains, rugged cliffs overhanging the seas interspersed with silky-smooth white beaches, pine trees, junipers and vineyards. In these sandy soils, pre-phylloxera vines continue to survive and thrive.

    Made with 10% Nuragus, another local variety, this spends a few months maturation on lees, in stainless steel, to give the wine an extra dimension of flavour and texture. Citrus notes and hints of tropical fruit with a zesty edge and a touch of green herb and sea spray. The palate is minerally and refreshing with clean pithy fruit and plenty of citrusy goodness. So easy to love and so hard to put down.

  20. Fiorini Chianti Superiore 2019
    Fiorini Chianti Superiore 2019
    Neil and Maria Empson, together with friend and star oenologist Franco Bernabei, work closely with a number of growers to style a compact range of wines representing the best of their terroir and price range. Their combined experience and expertise gives them access to a cross-section of Tuscany's finest vineyards and the merits of chosen locations, combined with strict quality parameters, ensure consistent excellence with each vintage. The result is a range combining fruit, finesse and value that makes these wines particularly food-friendly and versatile.

    90% Sangiovese with the balance a mix of Cabernet, Ciliegiolo and Canaiolo, this embraces a more somewhat more traditional blend of Tuscan varieties. A floral hint over dark berry and  typical red cherry fruit trails into a slightly more broody edge as the wine opens up. The fruit is rich and ripe with dark cherry and plum and notes of violet, spice and liquorice. There is a touch of rustic charm here with some firm tannins that melt softly into the fruit. Great stuff.

    Babo Pinot Grigio 2020
    Babo's Pinot Grigio is sourced from this region--specifically from a 30-year-old site in San Martino al Tagliamento, near Pordenone. The vineyard sits at the base of the Alps and the soils are a mix of clay and alpine gravel from alluvial deposits. De-stemmed, crushed, steel tank, some skin contact and on lees for 20 weeks prior to bottling.

    Fleshy, soft with a little grip and texture.

  22. Prunotto Occhetti Nebbiolo d'Alba 2018 375ml
    Prunotto Occhetti Nebbiolo d'Alba 2018 375ml
    In 1904 a co-operative winery called Ai Vino Delle Langhe was founded, and a young man who worked there was one Alfred Prunotto. Prunotto took over the estate in 1922, giving it his own name and today it is run under the umbrella of the famous Marchesi Antinori family. Located in Alba the estate tends around 50 hectares of vineyards throughout the Langhe and Monferrato and produces a range of fine wines from the heady Moscato d'Alba to delicious Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo.

    This is their entry level nebbiolo and a great representation of what they do. In a more traditional style with crushed flowers and savoury spice wrapped around a core of sweet red and black fruits. Its broad in its attack but pulls focus nicely with the 2018 throwing in a layer of deep set, warm fruits to the mid-weight palate. A sheath of ripe tannin and an open-knit feel make this a great mid-week option that gives you all your nebbiolo without breaking the bank or top-end Barolo.

An intense, lingering taste with fresh, fruity characteristics. This dry vermouth is extremely complex yet pleasing and elegant with notes of Iris Florentina and bitter orange. An excellent base for creative cocktails. DRAPO

  24. Babo Nero d'Avola 2018
    Babo Nero d'Avola 2018

    Hence, Babo's Nero is sourced from Sambuca di Sicilia, near Menfi, where the north facing, fossil-rich soils and cooling influence of both sea and nearby Lake Arancio, tend to produce a more subtle, spicy style of Nero d'Avola.

    Fruit is de-stemmed (no crushing) with lots of whole berries remaining in the ferment. With only a gentle extraction, the wine was pressed off skins after 10 days to mature in large-format oak (2,000-litre), where it stayed for only 10 months before bottling.
