Shiraz / Syrah
Chiara and Stefano Casali fell in love with this property in the Maremma region of Tuscany in 1997, and turned this love into the adventure of their lives, moving from Milan with the clear idea of making a wine that would simply interpret the gifts of the land.
The focus is always on balance, with freshness adding elegance to wines from an area which can be very hot and powerful wines are the norm.
This vintage of Corbizzo is a real revelation! Stefano has captured the sunshine through his Syrah grapes but with real elegance and style. Similar in style to top Provence Rose but with a bit more juicy red fruit flavours. Really delicious and certainly my pick of the pinks for this summer.
Perfect for the garden; English asparagus, smoked salmon salads, grilled garlic prawns – Yum!

Terlaner Cuvee, Cantine Terlano
Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950s and 1960s, which rank amongst the greatest white wines of the world, were made here.
Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Terlano has approximately 100 members, it farms 150 hectares and has an annual production of roughly 1.2 million bottles.
Under the expert eye of winemaker Rudi Kofler, the wines are sold and marketed according to three different quality categories. Furthermore, special older vintages have been stored in the valuable 'vinotheque', so that today roughly 12,000 bottles from 1955 to the present day are stored and some date back to even earlier days. This wine collection of older vintages is absolutely unique in Italy and proves that Terlano’s wines are able to age harmoniously for decades.
Brilliant pale yellow colour with green nuances. On the nose green apple and white peach combine with fine nuances of lemon balm and mint to create the typical aroma of the classic Terlano. On the palate the peach is very strong, too, lending the Terlano its lively but at the same time very mellow character. The multifaceted, well structured flavor derives from an interplay of freshness and minerality and also has a wonderfully persistent finish.
Great now, but this wine will gain richness and complexity with ageing. A perfect match for grilled fish and asparagus but this very food-friendly wine is remarkably versatile and can stand up to strongly flavoured dishes.
