SPUMANTE

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.

BRUT ROSÉ CASTELVEDER

Region: LOMBARDY

Region: LOMBARDY
Grape: CHARDONNAY & PINOT NOIR 
Vintage: 2011
Main characteristic: RICH & CELEBRATORY

Franciacorta of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, made just like Champagne in Lombardy. 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.
£50.11

NEGRONI

NIGHT NEGRONI FOR 2 OR MORE

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, all from Antica Distilleria Quaglia, in Turin) and garnished simply with a slice of orange.

We're offering it 2 ways.

For 2, 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.

For the Night Negroni Kit, 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. The kit will make 28 Negroni.

£12.00
IL LUPO ROSA FOR 2

A simple and delicious rose-scented cocktail based on a super pretty vermouth from Asti in Piemonte. We blend vodka, rose vermouth and Cointreau and ask you to pour it over ice and add a good twist of lemon to garnish. As the lemon is a key ingredient, we'll send you one. We're nice like that. 200ml, so serves 2. We've called it Il Lupo Rosa, the Pink Wolf because, well, why not.

£12.00
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.

£12.00

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
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
SOAVE CLASSICO TEDESCHI

Region: VENETO

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: GARGANEGA

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: SOFT, DRY & LUSCIOUS

Delicious volcanic Soave. Structure and depth, almond and a hint of toast. If you love Chablis, try it!

£15.40
CHARDONNAY ELIO GRASSO

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: CHARDONNAY

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: PURE & MINERAL

Refined chardonnay from our favourite Barolo producer, with great purity of fruit, rounded out by a touch of oak. Stone fruit and a touch of vanilla custard, finishing with minerality and life on the tongue.

A decadent drop, this would be great with baked scallops and slightly meatier fish dishes.

£26.55
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
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
NURAGUS PEDRAIA SANTADI

Region: SARDINIA

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: NURAGUS

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: SPRIGHTLY & PEACHY

From Sardinia's oldest grape, wonderfully fresh with a touch of stone fruit. Begging for sunshine and seafood.

A classic match with spaghetti with bottarga and shellfish.

£13.53
VERMENTINO IS ARGIOLAS

Region: SARDINIA

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: VERMENTINO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: FRESH & MARINE

An excellent example of Sardinia's main grape, Vermentino. At once fresh and lively on the palate, and rather serious and savoury. Quite a playful nose of ripe peaches belies the length of the finish and the pleasingly salty touch of the Med to book-end.

One for lovers of serious Albarino, and as such a great match for seafood and shellfish. Enough weight to cope with white meat too. This will not disappoint.

£20.66
VERDICCHIO CLASSICO BUCCI

Region: MARCHE

Grape: VERDICCHIO

Vintage: 2019

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
'RARITA' TERLAN

Region: TRENTINO-ALTO ADIGE

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: PINOT BIANCO

Vintage: 2005

Main charateristic: NUTTY, GOLDEN & LONG

A rare chance to try one of the finest whites of Italy, from the high Alps. Burnished gold, nutty, complex and super long. Amazing wine.

Matches well with dishes which will keep up with it's decadence; think truffles, lobsters in butter, veal chop. A 'vino meditazione', to sit back, share and enjoy.

£135.02

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.

£22.33

ORANGE

'INCANTO' ENZA LA FAUCI

Region: SICILY

Grape: GRECANICO DELL'ETNA

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristics: SAPID, MINERAL & COMPLEX

Born on the southern slopes of Mt. Etna, this wine has a LOT to give. Organic, volcanic, natural fermentation, long maceration, indigenous yeasts. All roads point to something pretty spectacular. Mineral driven, golden both in the glass and on the palate, this has complexity, stone fruit, and a fantastic saline finish. Great with seafood, or pork I should think. Definitely one to try. 

£24.11
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.

£29.27

ROSSI - RED WINES

CABERNET FRANC

Region: VENETO/FRIULI

Grape: CABERNET FRANC

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristic: JUICY & CRUNCHY

Grown right on the border of Veneto & Friuli, this delicious organic Cab.Franc is a perfect wine to help cut through richer dishes. Not super light, but on the medium side, it has a classic bright ruby colour and green pepper nose. Matches like a dream with pork and beans and vegetable dishes, and is excellent served just a touch cool.  

£14.60
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
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
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
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
SANTESU ROSSO

Region: SARDINIA

Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED

Grape: CANNONAU & MONICA DI SARDEGNA

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: SOFT AND DEEP

A charming blend of Sardinias most well known grapes. Cannonau (Grenache) brings bramble, spice, and depth to the party, while Monica adds elegance and quaffability, tempering the darkness. While the term versatile can sometimes mean lacking character in a wine description,  this bucks the trend, and can pair very well with deep seafood stew, anything tomato based, meat and veg dishes. Great value too!

£11.40
HABEMUS
Region: LAZIO
Style: FULL BODIED RED
Grape: SYRAH, GREANCHE, CARIGNAN, TEMPRANILLO
Vintage: 2017
Main characteristic: RICH AND SPICY

A cult gem from Blera, just north of Rome. San Giovenale grow deep, full fruit, and pick them when they're fit to burst with flavour. Seductive dark cherries, blackberries, sweet spice and lavender enchant the nose, while the first sip reveals wild berry jam, dried herbs and hints of smoke and tobacco along with a distinctive minerality. Definitely something special. We're not usually ones for an international blend at Bocca di Lupo, but this was far too good to turn down. 
£64.29
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
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. 

£29.89
BAROLO MONFALLETTO 2007

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: STRUCTURED RED

Grape: NEBBIOLO

Vintage: 2007

Main characteristic: PERFUMED & ARISTOCRATIC

A fine, structured Barolo from a great vintage. Dryness & structure is the key here, with spice and woodiness in the background. Classic perfumed nose, with flowers and red fruits, mixed with tingles of leather and tar, this will not disappoint! Not hefty, and so perfect with truffles and white meat. Our partridge, or dare I say it, turkey. A special bottling to celebrate 150 years since the unification of Italy, each bottle is labelled differently to showcase their labels through the ages. Barolo is always something special, so open this with somebody special and enjoy it.

£65.95
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
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
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
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
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.

£36.38
TURRIGA 2016

Region: SARDINIA

Style: FULL BODIED DELIGHT

Grape: CANNONAU, CARIGNAN & MALVASIA NERA

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: CHEWY & POWERFUL

THE iconic wine of Sardinia. We have just a few bottles of this jewel, & I've been tempted to save them for when (!) we re-open the restaurant. As it's Sardinia's moment in the sun on Bocca at Home though, I've relented and put it on sale. It will be snapped up. A big, dark, structured wine, crafted to be the island's Sassicaia. The vintage is great, and it's already drinking well. This is one of the few wines we offer for delivery which will repay patience in spades though.  I'd buy a couple, drink one and put one away. Prunes and sweet cherries mingle with tobacco and cinnamon and leather, and yes, the tannins are up front and unashamed. Pair with fat, basically. A dream with roast shoulder of lamb or goat, or a big chunk of marbled beef. This is money, but worth it. 

£65.89
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. 
£37.45
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
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
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
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
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
LAMBRUSCO SECCO

Region: EMILIA ROMAGNA

Style: DRY SPARKLING RED

Grape: LAMBRUSCO 

Vintage: NV

Main characteristic: FRUITY, EARTHY & FUN

Joyful fizz with a lovely earthly depth. Blackcurrants and roses; enjoy with salami and hard cheese. Not to be taken at all seriously!

£15.21
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.
£16.97
'BOCCA DI LUPO', TORMARESCA

Region: PUGLIA

Style: FULL BODIED RED

Grape: AGLIANICO

Vintage: 2014

Main characteristic: BOLD & SMOOTH

Deep dark wine of structure and spice. A rich Aglianico made by the much lauded Antinori's Tormaresca estate  in Puglia. A worthy namesake of our restaurant, as we are of it. Over a year in oak to round off some of the edges and produce a very well behaved, noble & meaty wine. Special.

£62.43

VINI DOLCI - SWEET 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

CONDIMENTS

1Kg strong organic bread flour from Shipton Mill in the Cotswolds.

1Kg (2 packs) of the best spaghetti we have found, made by Pastificio Gentile in Gragnano, Campania.

1Kg (2 packs) of the best rigatoni we have found, made by Pastificio Gentile in Gragnano, Campania.

500ml of Incanto EVOO (not Bandiera as pictured)

2 bars of Sabadi chocolate; superfood bars of 'raw' chocolate from Modica in Sicily. Who doesn't need a dose of sex or optimism?

2 delicious mini-pannetone from Forno Gentile, who this year were awarded the prize for 2nd best pannetone in all of Italy.

£47.00
caviar-cheese

50g of Russian Oscietra caviar paired with Stracchino and crisp pane carasau. An ideal pre-dinner nibble, or a very luxurious breakfast.

Directions:
  • Eat the soft cheese and cold caviar on the crispy bread, either together or alternating.

£69.00
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL INCANTO 500ml

A delicate single estate Sicilian EVOO, perfect for dressing fish and salads, with a little pepper and relatively low acidity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

£16.00
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.
£14.00
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.

 

ALLERGENS: We cannot guarantee the absence of ANY allergen. All packs of this dish contain dairy, gluten, alliums, eggs, and nuts.

£3.00
PARMESAN 36M

36 month aged parmesan from Emilia Romagna. A multitude of uses. Price per 200G

 

 

 

 

£5.20
TRUFFLE SLICER

Yes, you can use a mandolin to slice the finest truffles in the world. But how much cooler is it to have a truffle slicer handy?

With an adjustable steel blade and a rosewood handle, this can also be used to shave chocolate, garlic, shallots....

£27.00
TRUFFLE CARPACCIO

Often such preserved truffle products are a horrible waste of such a precious thing, not so here. These are thin disks of preserved black truffle, ideal for a multitude of uses. 80g

 

 


£18.00
OLIVES

Wild green and black olives from the hillsides of Calabria. Marinated with fennel seeds, bay leaves and chilli. Olives as they were, and should forever be. 330g

 

 

 

 

£5.20
AMALFI LEMONS
The Amalfi lemon is widely regarded by cooks as the prince among lemons, rivalled only by its Sicilian brethren. Grown on the hills of Campania in Italy - in particular around Sorrento and Amalfi - it is at its best in the summer months. Unwaxed and sold singly
£1.25
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

 

£3.00
GENTILE RIGATONI

The finest dried pasta I have ever tried. Pushed through bronze dies with an incredibly textured surface, it is then slowly dried over a number of days for the ultimate bite. 500g

 

 

 

£3.50

VALRHONA TROPILIA 500G

A fantastic 70% dark chocolate. This is perfect for cooking, or just for nibbling. 500g

 

 

 

 

£9.50
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. Slice it over avocado salad, serve it with garlic and oil, or grate it then melt it with oil, butter and lemon to make the mother of all pasta sauces. 100g

 

 

 

£20.00

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
