ORGANIC WINES

Biodynamic, vegan friendly and no sulphites.  A good way to ‘drink wines and keep healthy’?!

 7.   WHITE - PINOT GRIGIO, MONTE DEI ROARI, VENETO 2016   £25.50
A fabulously fresh Pinot Grigio. A little too drinkable?

 8.   RED - PALUSTREL, MONTE DEI ROARI, VENETO 2014   £28.50
A well-structured red of merlot and cabernet franc… better for a little breathing.

 

WHITE... DRY & LIGHT

10. MONFERRATO, ROCCHIN, PIEMONTE  2017                      £18.50

 11.   BROCCATELLI GALLI BIANCO, UMBRIA  2017             £19.50
Zesty, citrus fruit with a touch of almond, from local grapes of grechetto and trebbiano. A classy little number!

 12.  TREBBIANO D’ABRUZZO, FRENTANA  2017                     £20.50
A wine for every situation. These sun drenched vines achieve something extremely special: simplicity, fresh and citrusy touched with tropical melon and pineapple.

 13.  PINOT GRIGIO BELLA MODELLA, VENETO 2017        £22.00
A perfect light and extremely quaffable pinot. Light, fresh and just fruity enough  

14.  SAUVIGON BIANCO, CAMILLONA, PIEMONTE 2016   £24.50
A classy Italian sauvignon blanc – a bit more subtle than New World offerings.

  

WHITE... A BIT OF BODY, A LOT OF CLASS

15. VERDICCHIO, CIMARELLI, MARCHE 2016                      £22.00
The seaside towns of the Marche have one of the greatest seafood wines on their doorstep in Verdicchio, something we like to replicate in Kibworth.

16.   SOAVE CLASSICO, MONTEFORTE, VENETO  2017      £23.50
Crisp finish and soft fruits, an elegant wine, wonderful as an aperitif, or with antipasti.

 17.  GAVI DI GAVI, ROCCHIN, PIEMONTE  2017                  £25.00
From the cortese grape and a fabulous gavi, exactly as it should be.

 18.  PINOT GRIGIO, BUTUSSI, FRIULI  2017                        £29.50
An inimitableand well-balanced pinot grigio of rich, full fruit, with a lovely copper tint to its colour! One of our faves!

 

WHITE... SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY

25.  VERNACCIA DI SAN GIMIGNANO, TOSCANA 2013      £31.25
From Tuscany’s New York, the beautiful “Towers” of San Gimignano. A wine of golden colour, honey, tight mineral fruit that is unique, great and wonderfully enjoyable. Biodynamic winemaking at its best.

26.  PECORINO, FRENTANA, MARCHE 2017                             £32.00
Pecorino? Yes, it is a cheese, and a sheep, but not in this case! It is a rather lovely, full flavoured wine made organically and named after the local vine called Pecorino. Something a bit special to be honest.

27. GRECO DI TUFO, FERRANTE, DI MARZO, ITALY 2015    £34.50
Ferrante was born to make Greco, his ancestors created Greco di Tufo. It is a unique wine which could be described as a white for red drinkers – dry and surprisingly full.

28.  SOAVE CALVARINO, PIEROPOAN, VENETO 2015         £40.50
A top flight single vineyard soave from one of the best, Pieropan. Rich in fruit with just enough acidity for great balance, I commend it to you.

 29.  VIOGNIER, ASCHERI, LANGHE  2013                                 £45.00
Matteo wanted to achieve a great Piemonte white capable of ageing for many years and his success is remarkable.  The power, spice, intensity and fineness is pitch perfect, a very special wine.

 

 

ROSÉ... A LITTLE SOMETHING PINK

30.  ANCORA ROSATO,  CHIARETTO, PIEMONTE 2016        £20.50
A super, full fruit rosé. Rich in colour and yet a dry finish.

 31. LA FARFALLA, PINOT GRIGIO ROSÉ, VENETO              £22.50
A light and delicate rosé with typical pinot grigio fruit but still fresh and dry.
 

 

RED... FRUITY LITTLE REDS

35.  BARBERA, ROCCHIN, PIEMONTE  2017                      £18.50
Ruby red fruits with soft full flavour but not at all weighty. Another rather easy drinking little number!

 36.  BROCCATELLI GALLI ROSSO, UMBRIA  2016      £19.50
A beautifully fresh and simple sangiovese with canaiolo, the classic chianti blend.  Wine by the people, for the people.

37. MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO, FRENTANA 2016
b
ottle £20.50 | magnum £40.50
The great all-rounder, full plummy fruit, vibrant and full – dare we say, it’s almost like a stylish Ozzie Shiraz.  

 38.  BARDOLINO CLASSICO, RECCHIA, VENETO 2017      £25.50
Soft and easy cherry fruit, lovingly made, lifting it out of the ordinary. Grown and created on the shores of Lake Garda, why wouldn’t you?

 

RED... RATHER SPLENDIDO

45. PRIMITIVO, AMBASCIATORI, SALENTO 2015          £25.25
L
iquid sunshine, a wine that transports you to the baked earth of Puglia and unsurprisingly this is perfect with tomato, tuna and chilli stuffed peperoncini…

 46.  CHIANTI CLASSICO, POGGIO DELL'OLIVERA 2015   £27.50
An elegant Chianti, full bodied, plumy and a hint of spice.

47. SQUINZANO RISERVA, PUGLIA 2013                               £31.50
Squinzano is home to some of the Salento’s greatest Negroamaro and this is an unreformed, huge powerful wine, made for red meats and strong cheeses.   Also disturbingly enjoyable with no food at all!

 48.  AGLIANICO, BASILICATA  2014                                       £32.50
The guy that makes this wine really understands and loves his Aglianico, the fruit is deep and strawberry laced, tannins ripe and fine. Full bodied and not to be ignored!

 49.  RUBERAN, VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE, PIEROPAN 2015     £41.50
This blew me away, both elegant and structured. Rich and concentrate, full of black cherries and blackberries. Silky? You bet.. Really worth a try.

 

RED... FANTASTICO

50.  RIPASSO DEL VALPOLICELLA, VENETO 2013           £38.50
Twice fermented Valpolicella give a richness without the full-blown weight of an Amarone. A long time fave with our regulars!

 51.  AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO, VENETO 2011   £60.00
Brilliant! Intense, complex and great structure, black cherries and a little bit nutty

 52.  BAROLO, BREZZA, PIEMONTE 2012                                     £60.00
Elegant and sophisticated with a bit of age, presents really well.
