LA DOLCE VITA: A TREASURE TROVE OF ITALIAN CLASSICS ARRIVES AT FINE+RARE

For over a decade, one of Italy’s leading luxury hotel groups has been quietly sourcing the finest red wines direct from the country’s greatest producers. They have amassed a back-vintage hall-of-fame of Italian wine from some of Italy’s most iconic producers, including Angelo Gaja, Giacamo Conterno, Aldo Conterno, Luciano Sandrone, as well as cult vineyard sites such as Messorio, Tignanello and many more.

These now legendary single vineyard wines are difficult to find with such provenance and bottle age – having been expertly stored in their original cases in Florence, unmoved since they were bought on release. This rare collection is now perfectly matured and ready to drink.

The wines were destined for the fashionable Riviera, to be sipped by holidaymakers admiring the vistas in Venice, Portofino, Florence and the Amalfi Coast; locations that have throughout history attracted the true pleasure-seekers of the day - from Byron and Shelley to Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. But now the hotel group have decided to sell a portion of their collection, giving FINE+RARE’s customers the opportunity to add the glitz and glamour of the Riviera to their own personal cellars.
