We're presenting three reds made from quite unusual varieties, grown in very limited areas, to give rise to wines of the highest quality and with all the charm of their particular typicity. Three labels which convey an enduring link with the terroirs that the producers of these wineries have been able to recognise and interpret. With Sirica you can enjoy one of the most ancient varieties still in existence today and you'll discover in its dark bouquet all the mystery of the Irpinia region; Terrano will let you appreciate this variety's difficult profile, its acidity, its tannicity and a character as wild as the Karst countryside from which it derives; and finally with Cherchi's Cagnulari, you'll be filling your glass with all the juiciness of the fruit and the freshness of a light Mediterranean breeze.

Red. Feudi di San Gregorio Campania, Italy Sirica
Bottle: £8.95 club members / £10.29 non-members
Sirica appears a beautiful ruby colour (the name of the variety itself probably derives from "syricum", a red dye widely used in Roman times) and releases rich notes of blackberry, myrtle, liquorice and black pepper, in a clean-cut bouquet from which each nuance emerges with amazing vitality. The wild nature of this variety is tamed in the cellar through ageing in French oak barrels, and this makes Sirica a pleasant drink suiting all palates. A fresh, smooth wine that's very well-balanced and has some characteristically velvety tannins.

Red. Skerk Venezia Giulia, Italy Terrano
Bottle: £17.33 club members / £20.32 non-members
Teran, produced in limited quantities, is an expressive wine that's an impenetrable violet colour, with crisp acidity and slightly harsh tannins. On the nose there are the typical aromas of black fruit jam, dried violets, thyme, cedar wood, juniper, coffee, leather, liquorice and rust, seemingly making a rather dark ensemble but complex and intriguing overall. On the palate, it's a vigorous wine that has great freshness and some noticeable tannins accompanying its fruit-driven finish. A wine which is slightly on the harsh side and most unusual, and for that precise reason, one that's hard to forget. To be enjoyed from now onwards or for keeping on the rack for several more years.
Front and back
Red. Cherchi Isola dei Nuraghi, Italy Cagnulari
Bottle: £9.29 club members / £10.56 non-members
In the glass it appears a bright and intense ruby colour and emanates aromas of red fruits (ripe redcurrants, strawberries and raspberries), plums, blackberries, geraniums and leather. A whiff of white roses endows it with a feminine note and the character of the terroir emerges exuberantly through hints of Mediterranean bushes. On the palate it appears full and pleasant, flavoursome and fresh, with an agreeable smoothness recalling the ripe fruit. A most appealing wine with a lovely flavour, a bottle that will steal your heart.
