Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2014 DOC Casa E. di Mirafiore

The soil is the typical soil of Serralunga d’Alba, very rich in microelements, therefore these vineyards originate wines that express great character, with pronounced acidity and flavour. The colour is dark ruby-red with purple highlights; nose brimming over with leather, black liquorice, coffee and blackberry.

Barolo Lazzarito DOCG 2010 Casa E. di Mirafiore
HK$978

Barolo Lazzarito DOCG 2010 Casa E. di Mirafiore

Ruby-red with garnet highlights, it has a sumptuous bouquet, with clear-cut overtones of ripe plums, tobacco, mint, rosemary, cinnamon and dried mushrooms. Very dense, closely-woven tannins give the taste a well-knit sensation, together with softness and balance. 

At this point ageing begins in barrels (2,000 – 14,000 litres). After the second year, the wine stays in the bottle for a further period before consuming. This further refines the tannins without increasing the wine’s woodiness, achieving the right balance between the aromas of the grapes and the wood.

A truly full-bodied and powerful wine, obtained from grapes grown in the Lazzarito vineyard, a vitally important cru for the production of Barolo situated in the township of Serralunga d'Alba. Featuring typical ruby red hues shot through with garnet glints, this wine expresses itself through a focused fragrance containing vanilla, spice, woodland scents and faded rose. On the palate the taste is dry but mellow nonetheless, pleasantly velvety and harmonious, with a generously persistent finale. A superb wine for accompanying ambitious dishes with a flourish of quality and tradition.

Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium or mature cheeses, it also provides pleasant company for after-dinner conversation.

Barolo Riserva DOCG 2007 Casa E. di Mirafiore
HK$1,260

Barolo Riserva DOCG 2007 Casa E. di Mirafiore

Keeping up a tradition, Barolo Riserva Mirafiore is made blending wines coming from different estate vineyards. These vineyards can vary, depending on the characteristic of the vintages. Anyway, blending is made just when the malolactic fermentation is completed. A very long maceration and a few transfers during the oak barrel ageing, allows it to anticipate the evolution of the tertiary aromas before bottling. The perfect polyphenolic ripening of the grapes before harvesting, favours the extraction of a big quantity of sweet tannins, which at the end of ageing build a dense silky weft. In the glass, Barolo Riserva is a wine that can offer great emotions: ruby highlights still show on its deep garnet red colour, while its intense, clear-cut nose hints at spicy aromas like wormwood, then cocoa, mint, black cherry, leather and dried mushrooms. Its sweet, velvety tannins blend nicely on its smooth taste, helping to ensure a very long finish, warm and fascinating.

When tasted it reveals itself as an important wine, almost sweet at the start, velvety and welcoming, warm and full bodied.

In order to be labelled as a "Riserva” (Reserve), according to the law Barolo wine must have undergone at least 5 years of maturing before it is released. The first three years are spent in medium and big size oak barrels (20-140 hectolitres), then the wine ages for one year in large concrete tanks and – finally – for the last one in bottle.

Ideal match for big red meat dishes, and medium and mature cheeses, this wine also provides pleasant company during afterdinner conversation.

Transparent garnet red, it surprises us with its gentle floral notes, which lead to a fresh, fruity and harmonious taste.

The Rosso di Valtellina DOC from ARPEPE first saw the light in 2003, after a sweltering summer that had put our vines and our winegrowers sorely to the test. It would not have been fair to demean all their hard work by selling off the grapes, which were unsuitable for making a vintage wine. The choice came naturally: what might have had little value in the distant future could be given great dignity when young. The Rosso di Valtellina thus acquired a free and light-hearted personality, even though its elder siblings, more serious and refined, feared it might not last for years.

TERRE BRUNE - Carignano del Sulcis Superior

The Santadi Winery came into being in1960, when a group of grape growers, coordinated by ETFAS, the Land Reform Board of Sardinia, joined forces to set up a cooperative winemaking and marketing business. The place was – and is – Santadi, south-western Sardinia, in the heart of the Sulcis district.

Up to the 1980s, the Winery confined its activity to producing and selling bulk wine, only making a few half-hearted attempts at bottling.

A leap of faith was needed, and it came in the mid 1970s, when a new Board of Directors took office, headed by Antonello Pilloni (who remains the Chairman to this date). The new team saw that a change of tack was needed, and lost no time in securing the assistance of the internationally famous oenologist Giacomo Tachis who soon grew to love this land took the future of the Winery to heart. Under his guidance, the quality of the Santadi wines skyrocketed, securing them a breakthrough in the main markets, which immediately recognised their outstanding quality and strong identity.

Since then, the only direction has been upwards, as the Santadi wines continue to spread and reap appreciation worldwide. A success story made possible by the whole team, which includes the grape growers, directors, marketing staff and all winery workers, forming a reservoir of expertise that is an asset for the whole territory.

Marsala Superiore Vecchio Florio

Marsala Superiore Vecchio Florio

Marsala wine made by Cantine Florio is the fruit of a crossbreed of islands. According to legend, it was popularized by John Woodhouse, an English trader (and, according to German poet Novalis, “every Englishman is an island”) who tasted the wine in 1773, while in Marsala, and immediately fell in love with this product of the Italian island, Sicily. Marsala was traditionally aged in wooden casks, and acquired a similar taste to Spanish and Portuguese wines that were popular in England at the time. Woodhouse noticed his fellow countrymen’s appreciation and started to produce the delicacy in Sicily, following the “Solera” method of aging.

Then, in 1833, the Palermitan Vincenzo Florio (and many say that “every Sicilian is an island”) decided to give the British Empire some competition. In only a few years his company became the top producer of Marsala wine in the world.

After almost two centuries, the historic Cantine Florio – with their 165-meter-long naves, pointed arch ceilings, beaten tuff floors – still treasure about two thousand different-sized casks, barrels, and vats, used to make and perfect Marsala. But also ‘passito’ (straw wine) from Pantelleria and Malvasia from the island of Lipari.

Just like in the past, these wines are born form a crossbreed of islands.
