Ten great Italians
5 Jun 2009 by Jancis Robinson
On this dark grey morning in London, I thought I'd import some strong rays of Italian sunshine via the following tasting notes taken at a showing of wines from 10 great estates by UK Italian specialists Lea & Sandeman last month, a couple of Piemontese producers and then a particularly strong array from Tuscany and Umbria. Prices given are per bottle including VAT. Notes on some older vintages not currently for sale are also included. See Tasting articles by region for lots more notes on Italian wines, including Barolo 2004s and current Tuscans - and watch this space for my forthcoming survey of Brunello di Montalcino 2004s....
