Insieme translates as ‘together’, borne of close cooperation of the winemaking team with growers across Italy. A great introduction to Italian grapes from their native regions, these are well made wines which are varietally and regionally correct, though far more importantly delicious, versatile and superb value for drinkers discovering European wine, or as solid weeknight and casual drinkers.
Insieme Nero d’Avola 2017$ 21.00 incl. GST
Grown in Sicily near Arigento. 5 months in seasoned French oak, this was picked due to its balance of delivering juicy red fruits with the herbal grunt expected from this grape. Tobacco and dried herbs with ripe tannins round out the easy palate, pizza wine through and through.
Insieme Pinot Grigio 2019$ 23.00 incl. GST
From Veneto, raised without oak and classic in style, this is a more fruit driven expression than the Alto Adige wines of Italy’s north. Pear and green melon fruit with moreish juiciness and a zesty mineral undertone, a super easy glass to glasser.
Insieme Primitivo del Salento 2019$ 23.00 incl. GST
Our first shipment of this wine – we were seeking a juicy and lusty expression of this variety and this well delivers. A great wine for those discovering Italian wine or imports generally, loads of jammy fruits here and plenty of richness and power with a rustic edge, though ultimately juicy and satisfying. One for glugging alongside pizza, pasta and comforting protein dishes.
