Castello di Monsanto | Nemo | Cabernet Sauvignon | 75clBorn in the vineyard “Il Mulino” at 260 metres a.s.l., planted in 1976 with only Cabernet Sauvignon. Its name comes from the famous saying “Nemo propheta in patria” which in those years – the first harvest was in 1982 – was well-suited to the avant-garde and pioneristic spirit of the company. After the vinification in steel, it ages for 18 months in oak barriques and ages another year in glass.

House Tully & Singleton of Glendullan Reserve | Game of Thrones | 70clThe light straw shimmer of this liquid hints at the cask lineage of this Single Malt that is 100% ex-Bourbon casks; that’s confirmed by the heavy Madagascar vanilla opening on the nose followed by a suggestion of sweet, clove spice that develops over time. On the palate it’s initially driven by orchard fruits like apple; the clove returns but now with cinnamon as the palate develops. The finish moves away from citrus into a red berry compote with vanilla cheesecake and a pronounced cereal spice finish. ABV: 40%€48.00Add to cart

Talisker | 18 year old | 70cl
€115.00Add to cart
Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.
Full. Pleasant, smooth.
Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.
Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.

Mind boggling selection
We’ve just visited the renovated Vini e Capricci – the selection is simply mind boggling. The love of food of Abraham and his team shows clearly from the way they helped me choose and the way they speak about their products. We had lunch at the Vinoteca – so many different wines to try and the truffle burger…. Mmmm!

Random Find that impressed
Went for a random wine and cheese tasting session, as a friend told us this was happening, and we ended up buying loads of wines and cheese at realistic pricing. Plus we opened a number of wines and had a glorious impromptu cheese based lunch. We had so much fun that I would highly recommended on paying this place a visit. Just leave me some cheese!

Our experience at Vini e Capricci was simply outstanding. Prior to lunch we walked around the shop. Here you can find an impressive range of quality food from home-made pasta and fresh meat to olive oil, cheeses and other delicacies. Then there is an exceptional selection of wines and fine whiskies among other spirits. The decor of the place is very stylish, convenient and appealing, with a great attention to detail. When we finally sat down for lunch we had the Il Tagliere platter with a quality selection of cured and cooked hams, salami, cheese and condiments to share.
This was followed by the fresh meat selected from the counter which consisted of tomahawk and fassona steaks. All cooked to perfection. The Capatosta Morellino di Scansano red wine, proved to be the ideal pairing. After coffee and liqueurs, we retired to the serene ambiance of whisky lounge to relax and have a final drink. The overall experience was heavenly. Well done to Abraham, his wife Michelle, sons Luke and Jeremy and all the team!
