Antonio Carpene founded his winery in 1860, having been fascinated with Champagne. A qualified chemist, he was in contact with Pasteur and Koch and was firmly convinced that a similar wine could be produced in Italy. He applied his knowledge to the Prosecco grape (now known as Glera), the majestic variety of the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zone. Over 130 years of history, embracing four generations of the family, testify to Carpene Malvolti's dedication to product quality and they are unquestionably one of the leading producers. Fine and continuous bubbles, the wine is fruity and appealing with a floral and fresh fruit bouquet and a lemony finish. Every day serving suggestion: Ideal as an aperitif and excellent with fish dishes and throughout the meal.
The grapes for this wine were grown on the hills and flatter vineyards surrounding the town of San Salvo in Abruzzo. Deep ruby red, with lifted perfumes of dark fruits, plums and cherries and a hint of mocha. Soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish. Limited stock.
A deep red colour leads to a bouquet of dark chocolate with a hint of blackcurrant. The palate is satisfyingly rich with a firm, long finish. Beautifully complementary with Steak and Guinness Pie, rare roast beef or a mature Cheddar.
Bright pink in colour with a lively, youthful perfume of ripe strawberries and a touch of fresh mint. On the palate it is surprisingly full-bodied with good structure, perfectly balanced with a delicate fruit character and zesty, lightly spiced finish.

Six Grapes Reserve is one of Graham's original Port blends. The distinctive depiction of grapes on the label has always been used on the barrels to identify the 'Six Grapes' blend. Only grapes from first-class vineyards are used for this mark. Six Grapes is a true expression of Graham's house style with great richness and complexity. Six Grapes is a big hearted wine. It is fruity and robust and of superb quality. It is blended to be as similar as possible to a young Vintage Port. It has often been referred to as the everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker. Unique in the Port trade, Graham's selects its 'proprietary blend' ahead of its more commercial styles. All other Port shippers make a lighter style 'Reserve' blend out of lots that remain after they have bottled their LBV's. Dark red colour, with a seductive rich perfume of ripe plums and cherries. On the palate, complex, with a...
Vibrant purple hues with a deep ruby red core. The nose has masses of black fruits, red currants and spice which support hints of espresso and dried spice notes. On the palate, the wine is soft yet maintains expressions of cassis, anise and earthiness. Savoury, rich and yet balanced and restrained. Excellent with strong cheese or with red meats. 100% Shiraz.
Pale lemon in colour with green hints. Perfumes are of fresh, crisp apples, with a touch of pineapple and freshly cut hay. On the palate it is fresh and dry, with orchard fruit offset by ripe, tropical flavours. Clean and dry on the finish.
Limited stock. Grapes are sourced exclusively from their own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores, and only the free run juice is used for Oloroso 1986. Matured in casks of American oak without blending in the sherry town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. No other years are added to the 1986 barrels. The maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows over twenty years of ageing in cask, to give a dry, complex wine. Aroma: Intensely rich pervading walnut. Taste: Dry, intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour. Acidity lifts and gives freshness. Serve at room temperature as an aperitif or dry after dinner drink.

Straw-yellow coloured. The aromas are delicate and complex, with notes of almonds and autolysis. On the palate it is savoury, with flavours of green apple, sea salt and toasty yeast. The barrel fermentation adds extra body and structure. Long and persistent.
It is a very special and singular wine, quite different from the typical style of Somontano wines. It has a deep ruby-like colour with violet highlights. On the nose has very complex aromas, which combine the freshness of reineta apples wuth earthy nuances over a spicy/mineral background. In the mouth, it is dense, fleshy and has a long aftertaste that makes it unforgettable..
