A varied selection of 6 delicious, fruity wines from Italy.

3 reds and 3 whites, perfect for dinner parties or a quiet night in.

1 x Decordi Chianti D.O.C.G. 2018:

As is true of most historical wines, there are several theories about the origin of the name: according to some of the testimonies it could be derived from the Latin term "clangor" (noise), to remember the hunting noise; according to other versions, the name derives from the Etruscan word "clante", a name of Etruscan families spreading in the area.

In support of this hypothesis, there are Etruscan and Roman testimonies showing the ancient wine traditions, although the first documents in which, with the name Chianti, is identified a specific area of wine production date back to the 13th century.

The first notarial document dates back to 1398 when the name Chianti appears to refer to the wine produced in this area.

2 x Decordi Nero d'Avola D.O.C.:

The variety of Nero dAvola is also known as Calabrese , which would suggest that it is native of that region. Actually, this name seems to derive from the incorrect translation of the Sicilia dialect calauris, resulting from the union of the words calea that means grape and aulisi which means of Avola, a village in the province of Siracuse.

The Legend tells that the vine sprouted from the first time in Sicily from the tears of Dionysus, which cried for thirst, and so was born the nectar that the ancient god gave to men, to comfort them from labors, and to gods, to cheer their senses.
