Why do we love this case?

You could go and blow $428k on Lamborghini’s new Huracan and have an impractical thing to origami yourself into and drive around in once in awhile, with late onset feelings of remorse and insignificance. Or you could spend the price of a tank of high octane on this pack of Italian Stallions and have a much better time. This is the best Northern Italian red mix we’ve offered to date, with a spectrum of potent Piedmontese and a couple of Tuscan head-turners. Mount up, mofos.

Each pack contains a bottle of each of the following vinos:

Here’s the third vintage of a staple at Vinomofo. Mofos who bought the last couple will know how good it is, and 2015 was a stellar Chianti vintage. Classico is the original and most prestigious Chianti zone, first recognised for quality in 1716. The Taddei family’s Lornano estate in the Castellina hills make this superb, satin-smooth wine purely from sangiovese, aged in oak for 12 months, and now ready for you. Here’s what Gilbert & Gaillard had to say at their recent tasting, too (where they awarded it a gold medal): “Young, bright garnet. Shy nose of morello cherry, red fruits, oak and a floral note. Fresh, smooth, robust palate that is still fruit-forward. Dense, concentrated weight and firm mid-palate. Proportions are well-judged in this great, traditional Chianti Classico.”

Head Buyer John Clark loves this wine. Was heard saying: “The 2015 release is quite simply stunning! It’s going straight to my cellar.” And yes indeed, this wine is like pulling up to the club in a ruby red Lambo with full-bodied, handpicked sangiovese under the hood. Well, not really, but this wine is just as Italian and just as luxurious. 2015 was a stunner of a Chianti vintage, and Carobbio have made the most of it. The Carobbio team are all about care and precision, and this is a wine of extreme elegance and finesse. It’s opulent, spicy, with ripe black fruits and and bold but super soft tannins creating a smooth, balanced ride. Hop in.

Unquestionably enjoyable, unerringly delicious, but fresh and light-footed. Red fruits and herbs abound: cherry, raspberry and redcurrant; sage, lavender and oregano. The palate is refreshing, with all those red fruits riding on a grapefruit-like backbone. The acidity lends itself to creamy pasta dishes (Manzone recommend tagliatelle or ravioli), white meat and dancing. By god, there’ll be dancing.

Sustainable farming

2015 was an excellent vintage in Piedmont, with nebbiolo being picked about a week later than average. Yields were slightly down, while flavour intensity was correspondingly slightly increased. Careful farming like the sustainable way that Manzone Giovanni employs ensures healthy grapes, and health-giving wine. Ruby red and aromatic, delicate florals and red fruits follow through to a spicy, chalky palate that carries a coating of juiciness through to a long, drying finish. Langhe nebbiolo is Barolo’s little sibling, and this is a very tasty entry point to the wine that has us all hooked at Mofo HQ.

On the back of the triple 95 point 2016, this fresh release maintains the richness of a grenache or even a cooler climate shiraz, but brings its own unique flavours. Dark, rich, ripe red berries, currants and beautiful cleansing acidity. So it’s a richer, riper style of wine, and it has a lot of up front fruit but it also has some beautiful acidity to cleanse the palate.

If nebbiolo is Piemonte’s pièce de résistance, barbera is its prelude to a kiss, and dolcetto is its siren - Homer’s Odyssey style. This juicy red wine draws you in with its aromas of blueberry, cherry and violets. It’ll have you under its spell by the time you get its soft, plush palate of fleshy fruit, that’s a pleasant couple of shades darker than the nose: more blackberry, clove and pleasant spice. Drying and long, too, which seems a signature of Manzone. This is Roman era party-time seduction stuff. We’d warn you to cover your ears, but we know it’s too late for you. This siren’s call is carried on soft, warm breezes and holds no prisoners.
