Inferno, 1974

A. Pelizzati

Inferno is one of five viticultural sub-zones specifically identified as producing Valtellina wines of particularly high quality: the other four are Grumello, Sassella, Maroggia and Valgella. Inferno means 'hell' in Italian, and refers to the slopes between Sondrio town and the village of Tresivio. Although DOC laws do not explain the origins of this name, it has been suggested that in summer the slopes here get noticeably hotter than the rest of the valley. Just across Sondrio to the west is Sassella, the finest of the Valtellina sub-zones.

Jerzu, 1974

Luigi Caldi

There must be a good reason why Cannonau is the most famous Sardinian wine locally and worldwide. The fact that it is a strong flavoured red and the perfect match for the succulent meat dishes deeply ingrained in the Sardinian tradition is certainly a clue. This ruby red wine by the intense bouquet with hints of blackberry and forest berries is the most widespread black berry vine in the Island. The Cannonau grape is grown all over Sardinia, but especially in Ogliastra and precisely in Jerzu a village situated 500 m above sea level in the beautiful Ogliastra region.

Merlot, 1974

del Collio, Cormons

Merlot can also produce a delightful and intriguing pure varietal wine. While Merlot has a long history of use as a blending wine, pure Merlot wines have been relatively slow in gaining momentum in Italy. That too has changed and today some of the world’s best Merlot wines bear Italian labels. The Trentino wine is from well-positioned and carefully maintained hillside vineyards near the city of Trento in northeastern Italy.

Nebbiolo D'Alba, 1974

L. Bertolo

The Nebbiolo d'Alba has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavoured wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Sangiovese, 1974

Fazi Battaglia

Good-quality Sangiovese is prized for its high acid, firm tannins and balanced nature. Savoury flavors of dark cherries and black stone fruits are characteristic, and may be backed by secondary notes of tomato leaf and dried herbs. Sangiovese (or Nielluccio in Corsica), a dark-berried vine, is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy. Virtually synonymous with the red wines of Tuscany, and all the romanticism that goes with the territory, Sangiovese is the core constituent in some of the great names in Italian wine.
