Monte di Grazia Rosso, Peckham Cellars, Peckham Cellars
This is a truly remarkable wine from a truly remarkable winery. Monte di Grazia was started in 2004 by Alfonso Arpino ‚Äì in a unique spot inland from the Amalfi coast. The vineyard parcels that Alfonso secured on starting the winery are some of the oldest in Italy ‚Äì ranging from 100-300 years of age. They encompass native Campanian vines such as Piedirosso and Tintore, and Ginestra, Pepella, and Bianca Tenera. Due to the unique location of the vines and volcanic soils, the area is a treasure trove of ancient vineyards that have stood the test of time.
This is from the 2013 vintage. Developing complexity while maturing in the bottle, we find deep notes of sour-cherry, spice, crushed dried flowers and saline minerality. On the palate its juicy, with bright acidity and fine tannins.
Given the southerly heat in Campania, it‚Äôs a testament to these old vineyards that the wines here possess such balance. The brisk acidity on offer here is a great match with rich, flavourful food.
Grapes: Tintore 90% and Piedirosso 10%
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
