As a protest against our previous years’ features on Northern Nebbiolo, Piedmontese protagonists and Central European specimens, for the 2015 line-up Astrum’s Southern Italian wines are on the warpath…
Our wine list for this year’s Dirty Dozen will focus on the many and changing faces of stunning Southern Italian gems, as we meander down from Abruzzo to Puglia, across to Campania and right down into Sicily. Amongst others, expect some innovative examples of native grapes from Benanti, Cataldi Madonna, Tenute Rubino, Centopassi, Pietracupa, Solidea and our new producer Lapilli.
As always however, we’ll be showing a little something to suit everyone; with exciting offerings from Austria and Spain, appearances from our Bordeaux producer and our South African reds, and all rounded off with some of our Italian classics from across the peninsula.
Not to be missed.
