3 COURSE PUGLIA FEASTS FOR 2

NEGRONI

DAY NEGRONI FOR 2

If there's a cocktail that's taken the world by storm in recent years, it's the Negroni. The world is behind the times - you and I have known, since we learned what good meant, that if there was one cocktail to start the evening off well or finish it off definitively, it's the Negroni.

This is our twist on the classic, which we have named the Day Negroni (as it's rather lighter than the classic and delicious at any time of the day), made with all Italian ingredients (1/3 each of bitters, white vermouth, and gin) and garnished simply with a slice of lemon. We'll send over 200ml of the deliciously moreish concoction which serves 2, plus a lemon, which you can slice, or make one of those fancy curls of zest if you're the type. Chill it well before serving, and serve on the rocks or not. We'll leave that bit up to you.

NIGHT NEGRONI FOR 2

If there's a cocktail that's taken the world by storm in recent years, it's the Negroni. The world is behind the times - you and I have known, since we learned what good meant, that if there was one cocktail to start the evening off well or finish it off definitively, it's the Negroni.

This is our classic, which we have named the Night Negroni (as we have one a tad more suited for daytime drinking), made with all Italian ingredients (1/3 each of bitters, sweet vermouth, and gin) and garnished simply with a slice of orange. We'll send over 200ml of the deliciously wicked concoction which serves 2, plus an orange, which you can slice, or make one of those fancy curls of zest if you're the type. Chill it well before serving, and serve on the rocks or not. We'll leave that bit up to you.

NIGHT NEGRONI KIT (28 serves!)

If there's a cocktail that's taken the world by storm in recent years, it's the Negroni. The world is behind the times - you and I have known, since we learned what good meant, that if there was one cocktail to start the evening off well or finish it off definitively, it's the Negroni.

This is our classic, which we have named the Night Negroni (as we have one a tad more suited for daytime drinking), made with all Italian ingredients from Antica Distilleria Quaglia, near Turin.  We'll send over a bottle (70cl) of gin, and a litre each of bitters and vermouth. You will have more bitters and vermouth than you need. This will necessitate the purchase of more gin, of course. But then you will have leftover gin, and need to buy more bitters and vermouth. What a palaver!

You don't need any fancy cocktail kit to make this, just a spoon. Mix 25ml of each with ice and stir until the volume has doubled. Top up with more ice and garnish with a slice of orange. What could be simpler.

This kit will make 28 Negroni.

SPUMANTI - SPARKLING WINES

PROSECCO SUPERIORE GELUPO

Region: VENETO
Grape: GLERA
Vintage: NV
Main characteristics: DRY, ORCHARD FRUITS

Dry and surprisingly textured for Prosecco, this is a cut above. Persistently fizzy with classic pear notes and just a hint of bread. Can be mixed for a Bellini or Spritz of course, but we prefer to let it shine unescorted.

£14.95
SATEN BRUT, LE MARCHESINE
Region: LOMBARDY
Grape: CHARDONNAY
Vintage: 2015
Main characteristic: DRY & DECADENT

Franciacorta of Chardonnay, made just like Champagne in Lombardy. Fine fizz and a classic bread dough nose. A perfect aperitivo. 
£28.72
BRUT ROSÉ CASTELVEDER

Region: LOMBARDY

Grape: PINOT NOIR

Vintage: NV

Main characteristic: DRY WITH STRAWBERRY HINTS

Pale copper rosé Franciacorta, made like Champagne. This gives the French a run for their money. Delicate and dry, perfect with Parma ham.

 

 

£27.11
BRUT ZERO BERLUCCHI 2011
Region: LOMBARDY
Grape: CHARDONNAY / PINOT NOIR 
Vintage: 2011
Main characteristic: RICH & CELEBRATORY

Franciacorta of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, made just like Champagne in Lombard. This one is with zero 'dosage', so no added sugar, giving a sumptuous but bone dry fizz which has rested on its lees for an astounding 80 months. Rich and full, this took a trip to Italy to find, and we loved it so much we had it imported just for us. Something special, for the Italophile Champagne lover.
£48.11

BIANCHI - WHITES

PINOT BIANCO ERMACORA

Region: FRIULI

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: PINOT BIANCO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: APPLE CUSTARD & BLOSSOM

A Bocca di Lupo exclusive from a stone's throw from Croatia. Restrained, with glimpses of waxy lemon and apple blossom. A touch of custard rounds it off and makes for a delicious, versatile drop which doesn't shout and get in the way of supper. We love this wine and I can be pretty sure you will too. 

£20.41
VERMENTINO LA SPINETTA

Region: TUSCANY

Grape: VERMENTINO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: FRESH AND LIVELY

A superbly fresh and savoury Vermentino from a very classy producer. Mineral and sapid, but also jumping out of the glass with lemon and more than a hint of grapefruit. A dream with oysters and shellfish. 

£20.20
NOSIOLA

Region: TRENTINO-ALTO ADIGE

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: NOSIOLA

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: FRESH AND TINGLY

Super fresh, racy white from the mountains. A great alternative to Gavi or Picpoul, it's super clean and dry with a hint of white pepper on the finish. 

£11.21
GRILLO FEUDO MONTONI

Region: SICILY

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: GRILLO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: FRESH & FLORAL

Agrigento, in Southern Sicily, gives us this zippy, fresh white from the local Grillo grape. Peach and pineapple mingle on the nose, but this isn't a fruit bomb. Minerality and a dry palate show its class.

Great with seafood, anything with the salty hit of capers, and plenty more besides.

£19.31
VERMENTINO PAGLIATURA

Region: TUSCANY

Grape: VERMENTINO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: JOYFUL & PEACHY

You can see the Med from this vineyard. By opening a well chilled bottle, we hope you can almost taste it too...Not literally of course. That wouldn't go down half as well as this fine peachy drop. Sings with shellfish, so think Tuscan coast and sunshine with a bowl of Caciucco and you'll have fun. A great bottle to always have a couple of in the fridge.

£18.27
ERBALUCE ORSOLANI

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: ERBALUCE

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: GREEN & MINERAL

This estate only grows Erbaluce, in Piedmont, so they know it well. Green and mineral, with some weight and texture.

£18.58
LUGANA I FRATI

Region: VENETO

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: TURBIANA

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: HERBACEOUS & LIVELY

Textbook Lugana from the shores of Lake Garda. Herbaceous, lifted fruit with hints of fennel & basil. I love that it's not been knocked around at the winery, and is kept so pure and innocent. Perfect with fish, and a must try for those who love Sauvignon  but maybe want to try something a side-step away. 

£19.19
FRIULANO ERMACORA

Region: FRIULI 

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: FRIULANO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: PEACHES & ALMONDS

Friuli, in the Far East of Italy, is a fine place to visit, and has long been known as the the homeland of some of Italy's finest whites and light reds. Ermacora is one of Phill's favourite winemakers in the Colli Orientali - the Eastern Hills, which are indeed as Far East as you can get (within Italy).

Weighty (but unoaked), with notes of apricot and almond, this brilliant white is perfection as Dario Ermacora serves it: with prosciutto and melon, vignarola, pickled wild asparagus or his wife's juicy roast chicken.

Try it with yours.

£20.81
PIGATO TERRE BIANCHE

Region: LIGURIA

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: PIGATO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: FLORAL & SAVOURY

From the Riviera Ligure Di Ponente, a local variant ofVermentino. Like most Ligurian whites, this is built for seafood. Clean and dry, long and mineral. Lemon thyme nose, touch of peach on the palate, then a really pleasant glimpse of the sea right at the end.

Do you like Sauvignon Blanc? You'll love this. Do you abhor Sauvignon Blanc? You'll love this too! Sophisticated yet easy drinking.

 

£23.18
PINOT GRIGIO VILLA DORAL

Region: VENETO

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: PINOT GRIGIO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: VERDANT & TINGLY

A great summer wine, full of zest and zing. Lime and blossom on the nose, and just the right side side of mouthwatering to make this the perfect partner to all things green. Or a partner to another glass of the same...

£12.70
TIMORASSO COLOMBERA

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: TIMORASSO

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristic: HEADY & STRUCTURED

A rather big boned wine from a rising star of a grape called Timorasso. Grown in the hills of eastern Piedmont above Genoa, when young it can be readily tropical and lively, with bracing acidity. Ours has been given time to develop though into a very different beast, with power and weight carried along by great structure.

If you're a Burgundy fan, or enjoy old Chenin Blanc or Riesling like me, you should definitely give this a try, maybe with roast (or barbecued) pork.

£29.32
VERDICCHIO CLASSICO BUCCI

Region: MARCHE

Grape: VERDICCHIO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristics: DRY, CLEAN & MINERAL

Fresh, zingy, mineral Verdicchio. Green apple and a touch of elderflower on the nose, this is a seriously good dry as a bone white from a master.

£16.43
CIALLA BIANCO

Region: FRIULI

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: RIBOLLA GIALLA / PICOLIT / VERDUZZO

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: MINERAL & ORCHARD FRUITS

A gorgeously refined blend from Friuli Colli Orientali in Italy's far East. Pale yellow, with Williams pear and jasmine, given real poise with balanced acidity and minerality.

Quite a serious drop which lends itself to a properly good fish dish like grilled turbot or our salt baked bream. Great with roast pork too, and with the local delicacy, sweet Proscuitto di San Daniele.

£27.97
FALANGHINA QUINTODECIMO
Region: CAMPANIA 
Style: DRY WHITE
Grape: FALANGHINA Vintage: 2018
Main characteristic: FLORAL & SPECTACULAR

This is simply the best Falanghina there is! It's pricey, but something special, and absolutely worth it. QUINTODECIMO are recognised as one of the finest in the region, and we list their Greco Di Tufo and Taurasi Riserva too. Both are just as impressive. 

It is refreshing, floral and green, with bright fruit and life on the tongue. Rosemary and fennel lift the palate, and the finish is satisfyingly long. Do dinner justice and enjoy this with seafood and loved ones. One may not be enough. 

£41.48
GRECO DI TUFO FERRARA

Region: CAMPANIA

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: GRECO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: MOUTH-WATERING & TROPICAL

Down to the land of volcanoes, tomatoes and mozzarella for this smashing Greco di Tufo. Pale yellow, with an intense nose of bitter almonds and briused apple, this zips along to a mineral finish.

Perfect with burrata, mozzarella di bufala, or our grilled panzanella, this is in danger of becoming a wine to chill by the case!

£21.11

ROSÉ

CALAFURIA
Region: PUGLIA
Style: PALE ROSE
Grape: NEGROAMARO
Vintage: 2019
Main characteristic: FRESH & FRUITY
Tormaresca, the famed Antinori's Puglian outpost puts this wine together rather excellently every year. The locals drink it by the bucketload, and it really suits Puglia. Strawberry nose, a tingle of acidity, and a pleasingly dry finish makes for a savoury, versatile pink which loves seafood and spice. 
£17.17
ETNA ROSATO PIETRADOLCE

Region: SICILY

Style: PALE ROSATO

Grape: NERELLO MASCALESE

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: DRY & MINERAL

From a single vineyard of old bush vines on Mt. Etna's prized northern slope, this rosé delivers fruit and minerality, giving a sense of the volcanic soil with a pleasing dance on the tongue.

£19.37
AL POSTO DEI FIORE PIANELLE

Region: PIEDMONT  

Style: DRY ROSÉ

Grape: NEBBIOLO

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: DRY & SPICY

An adult rosé from this most sophisticated and beguiling of grapes, Nebbiolo. Less pale than some, this is definitely a pink for food. Spice and minerality add plenty to the typically floral nose. Very dry, and I think lovely just a touch warmer than usual rosé.

Excellent with vitello tonnato & cold cuts, and great with poached salmon.

£21.33

ORANGE

SOAVE 'BUCCIATO' CA' RUGATE

Region: VENETO

Grape: GARGANEGA

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: TEXTURED & INTRIGUING

A wine of character and tradition. Later harvest than most in this category, with just 30 hours of skin contact. This is a great way to experience an orange wine which is not all about the method, the wine behind it all is rather good too. An intriguing nose of beeswax, mandarin, fresh rosemary and preserved lemon, with a clean dry mineral finish.

£26.01
ANIMA ARANCIO FENOCCHIO

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: ORANGE

Grape: ARNEIS

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: FRESH, MINERAL & FUN

From the Langhe hills, an Arneis with 30 days of maceration, spontaneous fermentation, and a warm orange colour. Very clean and fresh, with a clementine nose and light tannins. An orange wine to use as you would a rosé, just a little more grown up and serious.

£28.27
VITOVSKA ZIDARICH

Region: FRIULI

Grape: VITOVSKA

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristics: MINERAL, MINERAL, & MINERAL

Born a stones throw from Slovenia, an orange wine of intense limestone character. Fresh and floral, inviting and herbal. Lime and lemons lift the wine and the 2 weeks skin contact drives the minerality without adding weight. A wine which will surprise and delight. Not just one for the wine geeks.

£38.84

ROSSI - RED WINES

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

Region: TUSCANY

Style: FULL BODIED RED

Grape: SANGIOVESE

Vintage: 2014

Main characteristic: SOFT CHERRY & LENGTH

A rather lovely Brunello from an early drinking vintage. 2014 Brunello is spot-on, with the right amount of sweet fruit to flesh the wine out and carry those lovely leathery tannins. We first tasted from this house 2 years ago and love what they do! Just the right combination of power and refinement; not too heavy, but tasty enough to do it's job very well. 
£36.45
ADONE ROSSO COLLEMATTONI
Region: TUSCANY
Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED
Grape: SANGIOVESE / MERLOT
Vintage: 2019
Main characteristic: SOFT AND FRUITY
A gluggable, juicy baby from one of our favourite Brunello producers in Montalcino, Tuscany. Sangiovese and Merlot combine to give sweet red fruit and depth with classic Sangiovese acidity and tannins.
Great with meat, but also really good with a simple pasta with tomato sauce.
£15.97
ORMA 2016

Region: TUSCANY

Grape: MERLOT, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CABERNET FRANC

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: POWERFUL & OPULENT

A thoroughbred Super Tuscan. Deep, complex & as long as you like. Give it a bit of time in the glass and it will give you everything. Spicy, deep prune fruit, raspberry dancing on the top, chocolate and licorice on the finish. Just hit it's stride in terms of age, but would also be good to revisit in a few years, or more. A rare delight!

£74.61
CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA SETTE PONTI
Region: TUSCANY
Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED
Grape: SANGIOVESE
Vintage: 2016
Main characteristic: SOFT CHERRY & SPICE
The Sette Ponti (seven bridges) estate takes the name from the bridges between the two cities of Firenze and Arezzo. Silky Chianti made the old way, with a touch more spice than some. Great pedigree and a stunning vintage.
£18.44
IL CARBONAIONE POGGIO SCALETTE

Region: TUSCANY

Style: FULL BODIED RED

Grape: SANGIOVESE

Vintage: 2001

Main characteristic: MUSCULAR & DEEP

Huge, powerful, dark and adult, this 100% Sangiovese is the best I've ever tasted, and we've given it time enough to develop into a truly memorable wine. 90 year old vines and the excellent 2001 vintage have produced something wonderful. I can't recommend it highly enough.

£57.75
BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO CASANOVA DI NERI
Region: TUSCANY
Style: FULL BODIED RED
Grape: SANGIOVESE
Vintage: 2013
Main characteristic: FULL & FINESSED

20th vintage of this superb wine, their 'TENUTA NUOVA' cru. A modern style, and a pretty plush and generous vintage, this is a gem. Classic Morello cherry, with leather, spice and fine tannins, this is pricey, but well worth it. Sumptuous and dense, this is a knockout Brunello!
£119.90
NERO D'AVOLA TERRA DI VENTO

Region: SICILY

Style: SOFT RED

Grape: NERO D'AVOLA,  NERELLO MASCALESE & NOCERA

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristic: DEEP & SUPPLE

A deep, characterful red from FARO, in the extreme north east of Sicily, overlooking the Messina Strait. Winds whip around this headland where the Mistral & Scirocco meet, hence the name, TERRA DI VENTO, land of wind. The vines here are sturdy, as are the wines. Deep and rich, but soft and juicy. Very easy to enjoy, particularly with a meaty pasta or plate of cheese. 

£20.41
POGGIO BESTIALE

Region: TUSCANY

Grape: CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CABERNET FRANC, PETIT VERDOT, MERLOT

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristic: DEEP, FINE & STRUCTURED

From the rolling hills of the Maremma on the Tuscan coast, this fine blend (Cab. Sauv., Cab. Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot) leads us towards 'Super Tuscan' territory. This though is not as huge as the blend suggests, so we have structure and depth, but also finesse and lively red fruits to keep us reaching for the bottle. We've found that one bottle just isn't enough of this beauty, so offer it in magnum too. 

£36.38
PRIMITIVO IONIS

Region: PUGLIA

Grape: PRIMITIVO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristics: JUICY, DARK & DELICIOUS

A veluptuous, tasty Primitivo; deep and full of plum and black cherry. The Puglian sun gives us ripe sweet fruit and makes this seriously gluggable!

£12.09
BARBARESCO (PRODUTTORI)

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED

Grape: NEBBIOLO

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: PRETTY & INVITING

Barbaresco is Barolo's prettier sister, and this is a benchmark example from the world's finest co-operative. The cracking 2016 vintage has produced a wine of sheer class and refinement, giving rose petal and raspberry with just a touch of licorice and mint. Everything has aligned to produce a Nebbiolo lover's dream. Buy a truck load!

£39.14
PINOT NERO PERNICE

Region: LOMBARDY

Style: STRUCTURED RED

Grape: PINOT NERO

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: ARISTOCRATIC & PRETTY

WOW! I had no idea Italian Pinot Noir could have such finesse until this gem from Lombardy. Raised on a fine rambling shooting estate, this is the oldest planting of Pinot Noir in the country, names for a game bird, the pernice, or partridge. This isn't a playful light pinot, rather a wine of social status and depth, at once pretty and deep. It's drinking very well now, or will age well if you can restrain yourself. Perfect with game birds, as you may imagine.

£39.05
LANGHE NEBBIOLO PORRO

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: SILKY RED

Grape: NEBBIOLO

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: HEADY AND JOYFUL

Langhe Nebbiolo. So, the same grape as Barolo and Barbaresco, often from exactly the same place, and from the same producers. Some of their wine, produced from younger vines, for instance, they will classify as Langhe Nebbiolo. Accessible price wise, and usually more immediately enjoyable. You don't need to wait 20 years for this one to finesse. 2017 was a hot, dry year in Piemonte, and it shows, giving a pleasant sweetness to the fruit behind the tannic structure. The aroma jumps from the glass, and the finish is long and delicious. This is a steal, and we bought the lot. 

£25.11
FREISA Az. Ag. 499

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: GUTSY RED

Grape: FREISA

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristic: DARK & EARTHY

Dark fruit, loads of structure and big, grainy tannins. A fine example of a lesser-known but deliciously chewy and savoury grape from Piemonte. Freisa is a genetic cousin of Nebbiolo, hence the structure, but it tends to have more heft and plummy fruit behind the tannin, and an earthier, more robust character.

£19.26
CORTE DEL LUPO

Region: LOMBARDY

Grape: MERLOT, CAB.FRANC, CAB.SAUV, CARMENERE

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristics: SMOOTH & SEDUCTIVE

Classic blend of the region, showing the proximity to France rather well. This is a star of a wine from the celebrated Ca del Bosco, masters of Franciacorta. Reading the blend would lead you to think of a heavy, rich wine, but this has such lightness of touch and finesse. A deeply regal red, with dark fruit and licorice hints and privately educated tannins.

£38.54
MONTEPULCIANO RISERVA

Region: ABRUZZO

Grape: MONTEPULCIANO

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristics: BALLSY, DEEP & LONG

A stunning Montepulciano. Like a barely tethered animal, inky and savage. Structure, depth, and bags of character. 

£30.62
COR DI VIN 95

Region: VENETO

Grape: CORVINA & MARSELAN

Vintage: 2013

Main characteristics: RICH & SEDUCTIVE

You know Amarone, right? where they grown Corvina, and dry the grapes in an attic to intensify, well, everything, to make a statement wine of power, sweetness and booze? Well, these guys make that too. But for this cracker, they leave the grapes to dry a little on the vine, and blend with just 5% Marselan to give a teeny herbaceous lift, just when you may think the wine is heading to sweetness. It reminds me of a really great Ripasso, but with just a little something extra. Very, very good, and a real favourite. 

£25.63
VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO

Region: VENETO

Style: MEDUIM BODIED RED

GRAPE: CORVINA & RONDINELLA

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: BRIGHT &  JUICY

Refreshing & vibrant, this is a really lovely example of it's type, with life bursting out of the glass. More foody than some, with a touch of almond and herbs. 

£13.75
ETNA ROSSO P. COSTANZO

Region: SICILY

Style: MEDUIM LIGHT RED

Grape: NERELLO MASCALESE

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: INVITING, SERIOUS & SMOKEY

A superb ethereal red from the prized northern slopes of Mt.Etna in Sicily. Not just a single cru (SANTO SPIRITO) or single vineyard, this is a single parcel (number 466, if you're asking!), vinified in very sexy (if you're a bit of a wine geek like me) wooden eggs. Medium to light in body, but serious length and minerality give all the backbone you need. I wanted to buy all they had when I visited, but they only let us have half, so enjoy it while you can.

£55.68
BARBERA SUPERIORE COPPI

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: FULL BODIED RED

Grape: BARBERA

Vintage: 2013

Main characteristic: POWERFUL & SUMPTUOUS

Big, bold and sumptuous Cru Barbera. Blackberries and pomegranates mingle with sweet spices, with power and structure behind. A wine to be savoured and enjoyed with barbecue smoke in the air and fine steak on the table. 

£27.89
LA GROLA ALLEGRINI

Region: VENETO

Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED

Grape: CORVINA / OSELETA

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: DEEP, FRUITY & SOFT

Mostly from the Covina grape, this is full and dark, yet soft and juicy. Blackcurrants and juniper accent from a top producer. 

 

£25.04
AMARONE MONTE OLMI

Region: VENETO

Style: FULL BODIED RED

GRAPE: CORVINA et al

Vintage: 2013

Main characteristic: POWERFUL & WARMING

If you like your wines big, then this is big with a capital 'B'. Lots of dark fruit, a kiss of oak, and yes, a touch of sweetness carry along a robust wine of texture that's also balanced enough to actually drink and enjoy. Not cheap, and Amarone never should be, this is something special.

£71.25

VINI DOLCI - DESSERT WINES

DINDARELLO MACULAN (375ml)

MOSCATO PASSITO, MACULAN, VENETO, 2018

A fresh and lightly honeyed Moscato Passito. Just enough stickyness to make it work fabulously with a proper cream cake, but light enough to not get in the way and take over the party. Touch of orange blossom and typical moscato flowers on the nose. I've served this one at the restaurant for years, so I know it will make you smile!

£15.75
PICOLIT ERMACORA (500ml)

PICOLIT, ERMACORA, FRIULI, 2016

A properly delicious burnished sticky from our friends in Friuli. Picolit, the grape, is rather rare to start with, and here it's dried and aged in oak, reducing the yield even further. I love that even though it is rich and sweet, it retains a touch of orange zest and a spark of acidity. Great on its own, or with a pudding of course. Share and savour.

£39.59
VIN SANTO RISERVA 375ml

VIN SANTO RISERVA, CAPEZZANA, TUSCANY, 2011

A wine of smiles and true luxury, this is a rare treat. Made the old way, grapes are dried on straw mats under the eves in a charming Tuscan castle. This is rich, sweet and complex, with a burr walnut hue. A wine for winter, for sharing with special (lucky) people, and for memorable times. 

£43.48

EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL LA BANDIERA 500ml

***NEW SEASON OIL***

Bolgheri is renowned as the terroir of (some of) the world's best wines, and (all of) the world's best olive oil. Jacqui at La Bandiera owns one of the best plots, and makes an unsurpassable blend of moraiolo, leccino and frantoio that is typical of Bolgheri – full-bodied with fruity and spicy notes and green aromas.  

At Bocca di Lupo it is the oil that graces our salads, anoints our fish, and sits on the table inviting the bread to jump in for a good dunking.

BALSAMIC VINEGAR 100ml
Balsamic reductions have become very fashionable in recent years, but they are often too sweet and sticky, made by rapidly boiling the balsamic down to a thick glaze. The Vecchia Dispensa 'Ricco' is no such thing, however. Made from an eight year vinegar naturally thickened within Slovenian oak barrels in the family's attics over the hot summer months, it is useful for dripping over a finished meal to add little bursts of flavour.

PANETTONE! 100gr

 

The absolute epitome of the baker's art. The simplest things can be the hardest to get right, and we have tasted literally hundreds of these to fine the best. Made a small family bakery on the Amalfi coast. Light but rich, airy & moist, studded with luscious raisins & candied orange. There is probably only one food in the world to make all your troubles go away, and this is it. Happiness and comfort tied up with a ribbon.

AMALFI LEMONS

CAPERS IN SALT 200G

Capers packed in salt are incredibly salty. Once soaked until tolerably saline, they are infinitely superior to their pickled twins. On the matter of superior capers, these are grown on the black sands of Pantelleria, a low island between Sicily and Africa, so windswept only Muscat grapes and caper bushes grow there. By clinging low to the sand, they are the epitome, fat, juicy and flavoursome.

Soak them before using. I use them copiously, in salads, braised in stews, in pastas, or even fried crispy in butter as a bar snack. 200g

BOTTARGA

It pays to have one luxury ingredient on hand, for moments when you feel low, or when an unexpected guest passes by. Stefano Vallebona earned his stripes selling Bottarga, and he still has the monopoly on both quality and value in his product.

BOCCA - COOKBOOK

Italy is a land of appetite, where life is embraced with passion, and food prepared with generosity and joy. But the cuisine is hard to define, as each region has its own rich culinary traditions - and so deep is the belief of locals that their food is the best, that often Italy's finest dishes are unknown from one place to the next.

Jacob Kenedy, a self-avowed culinary magpie, travelled the length and breadth of the country over the course of a year, gathering up his favourite recipes - many of them obscure, some bizarre, all utterly delicious. Like the menu at Bocca di Lupo, Jacob's award-winning London restaurant, this book is a thrilling, exotic journey through the true flavours of Italy: the hearty risotti of the north, the exquisite shellfish of the Veneto, the earthy sausages of Bologna, the fried street food of Rome, the baroque desserts of Naples and the Arab-influenced sweets of Sicily.

The recipes in Bocca are a revelation, a portal to a side of Italy that is gritty, glamorous, seedy and mysterious. Be warned, this is a cookbook with teeth.

The first two paragraph from the book. 

"I don’t eat food, I devour it. The act of consumption, of making something wonderful a part of me, goes rather to my head. In a fleeting moment, I taste that most precious ingredient, the love a great cook has poured so freely into the pot. It is all too easy to forget where the food came from, and the reason it is delicious.

I think there is something particularly alluring about Italian food – don’t you?
It has special qualities that permeate not only every dish worth eating there, but every aspect of the culture. In Italy, my spirits lift. The architecture seems to enhance nature in the countryside, and to exalt mankind in the cities. Human beauty shines in paintings and sculptures, in the smiles people give to children, in the directness with which they talk, in the food they prepare and eat with such passion and understanding. I am freed from any sense of the guilt or malaise that seem so common in the modern age. It is this freedom, this happiness, which makes Italian food so uniquely delicious and nourishing."

Jacob Kenedy
