A Few of Our

WINES

Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. Italian wine regions are known for their rich variety of wine styles. Italy, closely followed by Spain and France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume. From bright, fresh Pinot Grigio to the deep reds of Barolo, L’assaggino has something for everyone, especially given our great range of wines. A few of our wines:

£7 Glass £28 Bottle

FRANCIA CORTA MONZIO COMPAGNONI

Pale yellow colour with a hint of light green reflections. An abundant yet very refined perlage. On the nose, strong hints of toast, pastries and dried fruits (particularly toasted almonds) stand out with a finishing note of golden apple. Great balance of acidity and freshness on the palate together with the flavours of ripe apples. A pleasant softness on the finish.

£70.00

ROSE

TORREVENTO PRIMARONDA

Pink colored wine with hints of violet hues. Fruity bouquet, full-bodied, round, with notes of exotic fruits, nicely balanced. A great table wine that pairs well with soups, white meats and mild cheeses.
