ALTICELLI FIANO 2010 By Cantele I.G.T. Salento
100% Fiano Campano
The warmth of the Salento Peninsula, form where this wine hales, is contrasted with gentle, cool sea breezes in the evening. This natural temperature control is vital in the production of this superb vino. The personality of the Fiano variety are truly represented here, the outcome is a wine with depth, secrets waiting to be discovered and it is often described as, “A very sexy wine”.
A few cool drinks on a warm afternoon, what a great idea. This very pretty wine will romance you with its hidden depth. It looks very cheeky in the glass; a hint of green to the straw appearance of this wine gives an immediate impression of freshness.
The nose will have you experiencing aromas that range between ripe stone fruits, delicate floral scents and fresh grassy notes.
Only when you take the first sip of this wine does it truly reveal itself to you. Crisp acidity and roundness provide great length to the finish that will leave you tingling all over.
Put some fresh flowers on the table, BBQ some seafood and vegetables, crack a bottle of chilled Alticelli Fiano and let the romance begin, ah, spring…

Falanghina 2010 By Antica enotria
WINE MAKER: Luigi di Tuccio
Polvanera Falanghina 2010
by Polvanera, Organic
Very deep lemon gold colour. Lots of legs, almost viscous. The nose is really interesting and complex - Intense barley sugar, burnt toffee, peaches. Some minty spice and liquorice oak. The palate is also complex, intense and pleasant. The acidity is surprisingly high for Puglia. With a medium to full body, there are intense flavours of grilled green pepper, asparagus, peach juice followed by bitter chocolate and liquorice and with a finally of chewing tobacco. A really interesting wine, especially to try out new flavour and aroma notes. Definitely needs food to match this dry white and vegetal tastes. Great with a good roast chicken or lamb.
PRODUCTION AREA: Valle D'Itria, centre of Puglia.
COLOUR: Deep straw yellow with greenish tints.
Polvanera Fiano Minutolo 2010
organic fiano minutolo
You may have been introduced to Fiano Campano some time over the last few years, well now we have a real treat for you; Fiano Minutolo, the aromatic and in some ways, more charismatic brother of Campano. Fiano Minutolo is an indigenous variety to Puglia and is the result of Fiano planting hundreds and hundreds of years ago. With the changes in climate, soil and terroir it has evolved into this very pretty and lively Fiano.
The generous aroma is the first thing you notice as citrus and peach start to make the mouth water. Once in the mouth it reveals it's delicate minerality, crisp acidity, it's lean freshness and finishes with traces of lime blossom that you earlier detected on your nose.
This is a great summer wine and a tribute to it's seaside home of Puglia. Salute.
TERESA MANARA CHARDONNAY 11 By Cantele
GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Chardonnay
Terre al Monte D.O.C.
Sauvignon Blanc by Rivera
The good people at Rivera have risen to the challenge of successfully adapting a typically northern variety to the warm climate of Puglia. Its vines have found their place in the Murgia hills, not the most hospitable environment, I must say. Unforgiving land of rock and harsh elements have all added to the result. The result is Terre al Monte and it speaks for itself.
He wine is pale & luminous, it has a crystal appearance that speaks to you in a soft voice, a whisper, not unlike the Murgia breeze on a warm afternoon, seducing you into taking the next step.
The nose will give you some typical Sauvignon characteristics of intense fruit but no passion fruit here my friends, the Murgia hills are a long way from N.Z…
Finally it reaches your mouth where the fruit comes alive, excellent balance is displayed and is crisp and dry on the palate.
You could quite easily settle into a few bottles of this on a warm evening with some seafood, poultry or a light meat dish.
