Four world-class bottles of local Piedmont gems.
Piedmont is know mainly for its stunning Barolo and easy-drinking Gavi, but if you scratch under the surface you'll find a host of rare local grape varieties that produce world class wines, easily able to match the more famous siblings. In fact, most of these varietals are rarely exported, so popular as they are with the locals!¬†
Nascetta, Franco Conterno¬†
¬£22.00 > ¬£19.80
A floral nose with gives way to a fresh and zesty finish. Seldom seen in the UK we're happy to have some Nascetta in the building, its got a distinct¬†floral character but that's balanced by fresh and clean palate.
Caespes, Ezio Poggio
¬£22.00 > ¬£19.80
Mary and Ezio are part of renaissance in the region rediscovering the potential of the Timorasso grape. ¬†And with good reason, the wines show incredible depth and concentration, think pear, lemon with light floral notes on the nose. Once imbibed its¬†savoury, spicy and completely delicious.
Freisa, Franco Conterno
¬£20.00 > ¬£18.00
We think of Freisa¬†as a lighter-weight version of Nebiolo, so you get the same beautiful cherry fruit but with a slightly softer, more approachable structure - imagine the elegance of a Pinot Noir crossed with the power of a Barolo.
Coste della Sesia, Colombera & Gallera
Coste della Sesia is in the Northern Piedmont, high up in the hills. Here the typical Nebbiolo is blended with Croatina and Vespolina. The¬†altitude gives the wine a good deal of freshness to balance the power and structure of the wine. This one is really complex, constantly evolving with time in the glass. Look for mulberry, star anise, cherry. Enjoy this with grilled meats or boldly flavoured food.¬†
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.
