Redigaffi Tua Rita 2019: a wine for collection and investment, a bottle awarded by everyone: from Wine Spectator to Gambero Rosso, without forgetting other greats in the sector such as James Suckling and Robert Parker. Ripe fruit immediately presents itself with elegance on the nose, while wild blackberry is perceived in the mouth. The tannins are silky, the finish is long.

Belcompare Arnaldo Caprai 2016: an exceptional 100% Merlot Umbrian collectible wine which, not surprisingly, stands out among the most popular collectible bottles. In addition to ripe fruit, it’s also appreciated at the moment of the final – tasty and intense – chocolate. How to taste it? With a red meat menu!

Etrusco Merlot Tili 2016: why can’t you miss such a red wine? For its bouquet in the name of red fruits, for the harmonious flavor and persistent taste, for its character that makes it perfect to savor during a special meal, in particular with grills.

Messorio Le Macchiole 2017: this fantastic collectible and investment wine with remarkable intensity and round tannins comes from Tuscany. Coffee and cherry, as well as smoke and cooked plum are just some of the aromas that immediately stand out on the nose. It’s an important bottle, a gift certainly very welcome even by the most critical and demanding palates!
